Green Bay Packers Super Bowl Favorites

The Green Bay Packers were a +140 favorite to win the 2011 Super Bowl and were receiving 75 percent of the spread backing against the Chicago Bears for this weekend’s Playoff game at Sportsbook.com

A Packers win would pay out $14 for every $10 bet or $140 for every $100 bet with a Super Bowl win.

Chicago hosts Green Bay in the NFC championship game Sunday in the teams' first playoff meeting since Dec. 14, 1941.

Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers called last week’s performance and upset win over the Atlanta Falcons “possibly his best performance of his career.”  Rodgers has a 125.0 passer rating over his last nine games with 22 touchdowns and two interceptions.

"Aaron is playing as well as anybody has played that position and he's doing an excellent job spreading the ball around and getting it down the field," Packers center Scott Wells said.

Other Super Bowl odds had the Chicago Bears at 5/1, New York Jets at 3/1 and Pittsburgh Steelers at 2/1.  (See Sportsbook.com here)

FanDuel "Act of God" Clause Could Cancel College Football Futures

Many sportsbooks have stopped taking bets on college football in light of the Big 10 and PAC 12 cancelling their fall seasons.

With the Big 10 and PAC 12 officially cancelling their college football slate this fall, one has to wonder how this will impact the sportsbooks bottom line.  Of course, attempts to play in the spring would likely more than make up for any losses down the road.
