Las Vegas sportsbooks are getting big Super Bowl bets on the Packers

When it comes to Las Vegas sports betting, there’s no better or bigger time in the year for wagers to be placed than the postseason. Folks will always be checking out NFL playoff odds with passion, and things are only going to keep rocking for the Super Bowl. Matter of fact, the Las Vegas sportsbooks are getting big Super Bowl bets on the Packers with the big game still right around one month away.

This shouldn’t come as a major surprise, as Green Bay went 13-4 during the regular season and earned the No. 1 seed in the NFC. With this, the team has a first-round bye and they’ll also have home-field advantage throughout the entire postseason. We don’t have to tell you how big that will be for this team. With the NFC champion needing to go through Lambeau Field, this puts the Packers in a fantastic position.

According to a local report out of Sin City, Green Bay has seen the highest number of Super Bowl bets among the NFC teams. This is always going to be the case when you have Aaron Rodgers as the quarterback of the team, while Davante Adams is also arguably the best wide receiver out there. What Adams and Rodgers continue to do is nothing short of sensational. Can they get GB to the big game?

That’s what countless fans surely believe, as Green Bay holds +380 NFL Super Bowl odds to win it all. The Chiefs aren’t too far behind at +450. If those two were to face off in the Super Bowl, it’d be a matchup for the ages. However, other teams are hoping to prevent that from happening. With all of that said, we think the Packers sure have what it takes to get the job done, with Rodgers undoubtedly being the No. 1 player.

Packers odds are going up thanks to the team getting healthy

It goes without saying, but the Packers odds are going up thanks to the team getting healthy at the right time. This is the case for both sides of the ball, especially on defense. It felt like a long shot that either Whitney Mercilus or Za’Darius Smith would be able to return in time for the playoffs. Mercilus suffered a biceps injury in Week 10, while Smith underwent back surgery.

Yet, the two have been able to practice and this is only going to make the team’s pass-rush that much more stronger if they’re able to suit up. All signs are pointing to this going down, with these two guys joining the likes of Rashan Gary in the trenches ready to make plays on opposing quarterbacks in the coming weeks. That’s most definitely bad news for the rest of the NFC teams out there.

Meanwhile for the offense, Randall Cobb has missed a good chunk of this season after suffering an injury against the Rams and then needing to undergo core muscle surgery. While Cobb has been out for a while, he’s also been able to return to practice and the expectation is that he’ll be good to go for the Divisional Round too. We don’t have to tell you how big this is for Rodgers and the rest of the offense.

Cobb is a veteran for the unit and Rodgers most definitely trusts him in big-time situations. For Cobb, his return to Green Bay has been special and things will only be made better if he can help Rodgers win another Super Bowl with the team. Cobb will be ready to do whatever it takes to help that dream of being accomplished. From a health standpoint, things are really going great for head coach Matt LaFleur.

Rodgers’ MVP odds continue to rise from the Vegas oddsmakers as well

It shouldn’t come as a surprise, but Rodgers’ MVP odds continue to rise from the Vegas oddsmakers as well this winter. Rodgers is the overwhelming favorite to take home MVP honors for the second consecutive season, as he now holds -500 odds to win it again. The person with the No. 2 odds is Tom Brady, as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers signal-caller has been set at +400. This tells you Rodgers is a strong choice.

Rogers was superb in the regular season and he’s expected to keep performing strongly in the postseason too. While plenty of his haters don’t think he’s deserving of the award, including Colin Cowherd shockingly coming out and saying that Joe Burrow should be MVP, it’s hard to argue what Rodgers should get this. After winning it last year, he’s followed things up by being one of the best QBs around.

With a strong postseason showing as well, Rodgers should be able to cruise to MVP honors. He’s made it more than clear that he doesn’t care about the outside noise and that nothing will stop him from winning the Super Bowl. Bringing the Lombardi Trophy back to Lambeau is something Rodgers has wanted to do for a while. If he does that, an MVP award should follow suit as well for him.
