The Green Bay Packers have been the class of the NFC North for more than 20 years, riding with Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers as their quarterbacks since 1992. Under Rodgers, the Packers have won the NFC North title 8 of the last 11 seasons, including 8 of 10 when he was the primary QB.
Below, we look at the Green Bay Packers 2022 NFL futures odds — including win total, division, conference and Super Bowl odds at Tipico Sportsbook — with best bet suggestions among our NFL picks and predictions
The hostage situation in the offseason with Rodgers came with a price. He got $50 million a year and the team couldn’t afford WR Davante Adams, who was traded to the Las Vegas Raiders. The Packers signed just 4 outside free agents, while losing 11 players to free agency.
The Packers had two picks in the first round of the NFL Draft, using them on defense – LB Quay Walker and DT Devonte Wyatt (both of Georgia). The team got Rodgers a couple of weapons at wide receiver – Christian Watson (North Dakota State) in the second round and Romeo Doubs (Nevada) in the fourth – but Rodgers is going to have a much different supporting cast this season.

Green Bay Packers’ 2022 win total: Best bet
Odds provided by Tipico Sportsbook; access USA TODAY Sports Scores and Sports Betting Odds hub for a full list. Lines last updated Saturday, May 14 at 5:27 am ET.
Over/Under: 10.5 (O: -150 | U: +120)
This is a big opening number – only Buffalo and Tampa Bay are higher at 11.5. But there is a reason why all three are in the spots they are – they take care of business in their 6 division games – as 5-1 is a minimum expectation and 6-0 is in the realm of possibility.
If the Packers go 5-1 inside the NFC North, all they have to do is post a 6-5 record in their non-division games. With the schedule including the Giants, Jets and Commanders, this is a no-brainer to BET OVER 10.5 WINS (-150). You’re investing on a 3:2 ratio, but the Packers have won 13 each of the last three seasons and can shave two off that and still cover.
Green Bay Packers’ 2022 Super Bowl odds
Odds: +1000 (bet $100 to win $1,000)
The bet here seems pretty simple. You’re being given 10:1 odds to take the Packers to bring home the trophy named after their patriarch. It’s hard to imagine with the collective talent that Favre and Rodgers have that they combined to win as many Lombardi Trophies as Eli Manning.
The biggest question is whether Green Bay will get into the postseason. That would be a resounding “yes,” likely earning some home playoff games, too.
While the history is more of heartache than championships, I like PACKERS (+1000) to win the Super Bowl because the price is right in an NFC that has a smoother path to the playoffs than the AFC.
Green Bay Packers’ 2022 playoff odds
Will Packers make the playoffs: Yes -450 | No +320
The only way Green Bay doesn’t make the playoffs is if Rodgers suffers a season-ending injury early in the year. The Vikings are the only team with a shot at contending for the title and they’re coming off firing their coach due to ineffectiveness.
There is no way you ever risk more than 4 times the investment on return. It’s an easy bet to make, but too many variables can come into play to risk that much when there are other more reasonable bets available to invest in. PASS.
Odds to win NFC North Division
- Chicago Bears +900 (bet $100 to win $900)
- Detroit Lions +1000 (bet $100 to win $1,000)
- Green Bay Packers -180 (bet $180 to win $100)
- Minnesota Vikings +270 (bet $100 to win $270)
As with the “Will they make the playoffs?” bet, the Packers are prohibitive favorites here for good reason. They’ve been the top dog of this division for some time and, while Minnesota and Chicago have had their moments from time to time, Green Bay owns this division.
The Lions and Bears are afterthoughts this season – even with a favorable non-division schedule.
I’m not a fan of risking too much to get back so little, but I’d invest on the PACKERS (-180) against division opponents that seem a season away (at best) from making a lot of noise.
Odds to win NFC
Odds: +450 (bet $100 to win $450)
There are only 5 NFC teams with a legitimate shot at the Super Bowl and two of them (Rams and San Francisco 49ers), playing in the same division. Forcing one to go on the road throughout the playoffs is a big ask. If the Packers can stockpile the wins that appear to be out there for the taking in and out of the NFC North to earn home-field advantage in the playoffs, they’ll have a distinct advantage against warm-weather QBs like Tom Brady (Bucs ), Matthew Stafford (Rams) and/or Dak Prescott (Cowboys).
At +450, Green Bay is getting a 4.5 times return on investment. If the Packers manage to win 13 games for a fourth straight season, it looks like somebody will have to come to Lambeau Field in late January to stop them.
TAKE PACKERS TO WIN THE NFC (+450) with a reasonably conservative wager.
