Read here to see the projected odds for the Packers for the 2008 season. Vegas has apparently set the Pack’s likely win total (over/under bet anyway) at 9.5 wins. After reading this, I thought “how can a team win 1/2 a game?” Just kidding. Even though the Pack won 13 games last year, my initial thought is that this number may not be too far off. I think the Pack has plenty of talent to have another big season, but there are some major question marks, so I don’t think Packer fans should be discouraged by this “prediction”. (My personal prediction for the Packers win total will be posted soon, after further research on the Pack and the NFL in general).
Perhaps the most surprising Vegas stat Pelissero mentions is the Bears at 8.5 wins over/under. I don’t think so. They simply cannot continue to get by with such poor QB options. Like I said last year, the Bears will not be very good this year – lucky to get to .500.
