Online sportsbook Bodog currently has the Packers over/under line for total 2014 wins at 10.5.
Confidently pounding the table and recommending you bet the house on the over is a little ambitious but if you go through the Packers 2014 schedule game by game it’s not that hard to find 11 victories out there.
Hell, it’s not that hard to rustle up 12 victories as you’ll see below, so maybe you should go bet the house at an O/U of 10.5 wins.
Green Bay Packers 2014 Schedule
Green Bay at Seattle, Sept. 4, 7:30 p.m. CT (NBC) â€“ This one is obviously a rough way to start the season and it’s hard to conjure up a Packer win here. Let’s celebrate football being back and not get too upset at starting the season 0-1.
Green Bay vs. N.Y. Jets, Sept. 14, 3:25 p.m. CT (CBS) â€“ A home game versus the Jets is just the ticket to get to 1-1.
Green Bay at Detroit, Sept. 21, 12 p.m. CT (FOX) â€“ Green Bay has won six of eight games at Ford Field under Mike McCarthy and half the Lions team could be in jail. An easy Packers win gets us to 2-1.
Green Bay at Chicago, Sept. 28, 12 p.m. CT (FOX) â€“ The Packers have been crushing the Bears at Soldier Field of late and da Bears have been a bit schizophrenic the last few seasons. Close game but Packers pull it out in the end for a 3-1 record.
Green Bay vs. Minnesota, Oct. 2, 7:25 p.m. CT (CBS/NFLN) â€“ It’s hard to see the Vikings turning things around to any great extent this year. Pack win gets them to 4-1.
Green Bay at Miami, Oct. 12, 12 p.m. CT (FOX) â€“ Seeing the Packers in Miami just seems wrong but an easy win makes up for it and sees them improve to 5-1.
Green Bay vs. Carolina, Oct. 19, 12 p.m. CT (FOX) â€“ This could be a trap game — especially looking ahead to New Orleans the next week — but Carolina loves to disappoint everyone predicting success for them before the season begins. We’ll get cute here and say the Pack stumbles and throws one away, falling to 5-2 on the season.
Green Bay at New Orleans, Oct. 26, 7:30 p.m. CT (NBC) â€“ This should be a heck of a football game but taking on New Orleans at home is a tall task. Saints one a close one to drop Green Bay to 5-3.
Green Bay vs. Chicago, Nov. 9, 7:30 p.m. CT (NBC) â€“ Packers run the table versus the Bears and improve to 6-3.
Green Bay vs. Philadelphia, Nov. 16, 12 p.m. CT (FOX) â€“ Close contest but Green Bay grinds out a win at home to improve to 7-3.
Green Bay at Minnesota, Nov. 23, 12 p.m. CT (FOX) â€“ Sorry Vikes but no victory for you in 2014 versus the Pack. Packers win to go to 8-3.
Green Bay vs. New England, Nov. 30, 3:25 p.m. CT (CBS) â€“ This should be another head-knocker but getting them at home definitely helps and the Pack wins to improve to 9-3.
Green Bay vs. Atlanta, Dec. 8, 7:30 p.m. CT (ESPN) â€“ Atlanta just doesn’t improve enough to give the Pack a serious run at home. Green Bay cruises to victory and bumps up their record to 10-3.
Green Bay at Buffalo, Dec. 14, 12 p.m. CT (FOX) â€“ You have to lose some dumb ones and the Packers by now have the division locked up, so throwing one away to the Bills doesn’t hurt as they slip to 10-4 on the season.
Green Bay at Tampa Bay, Dec. 21, 12 p.m. CT (FOX) â€“ Tampa Bay dishes up an easy road game, with Green Bay improving to 11-4.
Green Bay vs. Detroit, Dec. 28, 12 p.m. CT (FOX) â€“ Packers crush the Lions and wrap up a division win and a not-too-shabby record of 12-4 for the 2014 NFL season.
