Packers Schedule vs. NFL Odds Features Four Prime Time Games

The Green Bay Packers are going to be featured a lot in NFL odds in 2010. The Packers play four games in prime time, three on Sunday night and one on Monday night.

The Packers begin the season at Philadelphia on September 12th and they are a small one point favorite in NFL lines.

NFL odds will favor the Packers a lot in 2010. They are favored at Philadelphia in Week 1 and they will be favored at home vs. the Buffalo Bills in Week 2. They will probably be favored on Monday night September 27th at Chicago on ESPN.  Week 4 will have them heavily favored at home against Detroit and it is possible the Packers will be favored at Washington in Week 5. They should also be favored at home against the Dolphins in Week 6 and at home against the Vikings in Week 7 in a game to be televised by NBC.

The first time the Packers are likely to be getting points is in Week 8 as they are at the New York Jets.  The Sunday night game on NBC when they host the Dallas Cowboys could be near a pick in NFL lines in Week 9. The Packers bye comes in Week 10.

The Packers better enjoy their bye week because they go to Minnesota in Week 11 and to Atlanta in Week 12.  They will probably be underdogs in both of those contests.  The Packers come home for the San Francisco 49ers in Week 13.  They then go to Detroit in Week 14.  The Packers are likely to be underdogs at New England in Week 15 in a Sunday night game on NBC and then they come home for a tough game against the New York Giants in Week 16.  Green Bay finishes up at home against the Chicago Bears in Week 17. Playing at Lambeau Field in December is never easy for visiting teams so the Packers have to like their chances against San Francisco, New York and Chicago.

Overall, the early part of the schedule is favorable for Green Bay; the middle part is very tough while the latter part of the schedule looks good.  The Packers are getting a lot of action in football futures as they are 8-1 to win the Super Bowl and based on their schedule they may have a chance to make it to the big game this season.
