The Packers also have odds to win the Super Bowl in 2023 as well, and they are certainly contenders for a victory.
What Are Some Of The Best Packers Betting Sites?
Of course, even if you know how to bet on the Green Bay Packers you might not know where to place your bets. Here are some of the best betting websites for you to start with.
Draft Kings Sportsbook has bonuses for new users, along with $50 free on your deposit and up to $1,000 on your deposit bonuses as well, and it is very easy to get started on. Caesars Sportsbook gives up to $1,500 in risk free bets, along with weekly odds boosts. Finally.
Fanduel gives you a $1,000 “no sweat first bet” where you can get up to $1,000 dollars in free bets if your first bet turns into a loss, which is very helpful for newcomers to the betting game.
You Can Make Packers Prop Bets
Prop bets are bets that are made on individual players and their performances, and they are usually based on a question. For example, will Aaron Rodgers throw for more than 350 yards in game 2? People will bet on the outcome, and depending on what happens during the game, they either win or lose the money associated with the prop bet! Prop bets can be anything from simple bets to bets that are wild and outlandish, and if certain Green Bay Packers players are on fire, you can make prop bets on them.
What Other Bets Can You Make On The Green Bay Packers?
Of course, prop bets aren’t the only the bets you can make on the Green Bay Packers, and there are several different types of bets that you will find whenever you go to a sportsbooking website.
Point Spread Bets
A Point Spread Bet is betting on how many points a team wins or loses by. For example, a point spread bet on the first game of the season (the Green Bay Packers vs The Minnesota Vikings) could look like this.
- The Packers: -8.5 (-110)
- The Vikings -8.5 (-110)
In this example the Green Bay Packers are favored to win by 8.5 points, and if the Packers were to win by 31-20, which is more than 8.5 points, then those who bet on those numbers would win some money. However, if the Vikings keep the points within 9 and lose 23-17, it doesn’t matter that the Packers won because they didn’t win by the margin listed, so the Vikings would win the bet.
The Over/Under Point Total
Much like Point spread, this bet refers to the combined number of points for both games, and players will bet over or under a certain number. For example, if the projected point total for the Vikings vs the Green Bay Packers is 49.5, and both teams score 31-20, then the total would be 51, and those who bet over would win.
Since the Packers have Aaron Rodgers, a strong offense, and a pretty strong defense, the projected point totals for their games have been very high, so over/under point totals will be very interesting moving into the 2022 season.
In Play Bets and Live Betting
Of course, why bet on what happens during the game whenever you can bet on it live and in person as the game goes on. For some people, they just love the thrill of being able to make bets and react in real time as the game is played. The odds aren’t always in your favor with these games, but if you are prepared then you might know what to do.
If the Green Bay Packers are favored against a team like the Buffalo Bills, then players might place a bet on them. If the odds swing back in favor of the Bills by halftime, then the money you could win or lose from the bet will change if the Green Bay Packers make a comeback. However, if it looks like the Bills are coming close to winning the game, some players will place some money on them to hedge the bet and regain some money.
Betting during a live game can be a massive adrenaline rush for some fans, but you need to be in complete control of your money and your emotions to avoid losing too much!
Parlays and Teasers
Finally, you can string parlays or teasers together. A parlay is whenever you combine multiple wagers into one bet, rolling one wager into another. If you win the first wager, you move on to the second and so on. But if you lose one wager, you lose everything. Teaser bets use a point buy system to buy ‘legs’ of a bet, picking at least two teams to bet on. Much like parlays, both legs must be won in order for the bettor to win the entire bet.
These are more complicated and riskier than individual bets, but can lead to massive payouts if you end up running the gauntlet and winning!
Betting on the Green Bay Packers is going to be exciting, especially when you contrast the return on Aaron Rodgers with the loss of Davante Adams. As the 2022 season opens up, place your bets and see what comes out of it all!
