The Green Bay Packers are 5-0 SU and ATS in their last five regular season games with a healthy Aaron Rodgers under center.
Rodgers is one of the favorites to win NFL MVP going off at 6-1 to win the award.
When Aaron Rodgers is in, the Green Bay Packers have one of the best offenses in the NFL. In the eight full games that Rodgers played last season (not including the game he was injured in on Monday night), the Packers were 6-2 SU and ATS averaging 30.6 points per game.
In the other eight games of 2013, Green Bay was 3-5-1 SU and 2-7 ATS averaging 21.5 PPG. Needless to say, the Packers need Aaron Rodgers to stay healthy to enjoy success.
Green Bay suffered through an uncharacteristically bad year on defense last season. The Packers finished in the bottom third of the league in both total yardage allowing 372.2 yards per game and scoring defense allowing 26.8 points per game.
Offensive futility with Rodgers out for half of the season didn't help the unit, which should be better this season with the addition of defensive end Julius Peppers.
Green Bay is a -225 favorite to advance to the postseason while paying +185 to miss the postseason. The Packers' season win total is set at 10.5 games. With three straight NFC North titles under their belt, the Packers are also the favorite to win the division at -125.
Green Bay is 23-6-1 SU and 20-10 ATS in its last 30 games against division rivals and is 9-2 SU and 8-3 ATS in its last 11 games against the Chicago Bears, who are expected to be Green Bay's main threat in the NFC North.
If Rogers stays healthy and the defense gets back on track, Green Bay should be in the thick of the races for the NFC conference title at 6-1 and the Super Bowl at 10-1, according to NFLOnlineBetting.com .
The Packers will need to learn how to solve or hope to avoid Colin Kaepernick and San Francisco in the postseason as they are 0-4 SU and 0-3-1 ATS in their last four games against the 49ers.
