Training camp is less than two weeks away, and Aaron Rodgers has yet to commit to playing for the Green Bay Packers this season. Now is the perfect time to bet the Packers to win the NFC North. It is listed at -120 on BetOnline. Green Bay has absolutely dominated the division during the Aaron Rodgers era, and I don't see that changing any time soon. I love the Packers at this particular number, due to the speculation surrounding their quarterback at the moment. It has been widely reported that he wants out of Green Bay, but he has almost no leverage with the organization. The Packers own his rights for the foreseeable future, and the front office would be foolish to trade away the 2020 MVP. This team is built to win now. They have reached the NFC Championship Game in back-to-back seasons. Rodgers is playing the best football of his career. Davante Adams is arguably the best receiver in the game. Jaire Alexander and Adrian Amos form one of the best secondaries in the league. The roster is talent-rich, and Jordan Love is not ready to take control yet. I highly doubt Rodgers would actually sit out. He'd be costing himself millions of dollars and another chance at a Super Bowl. I don't see any scenario where Rodgers takes snaps for another football team, either. Ultimately, Rodgers comes to his senses and realizes that his best path to the Super Bowl is with the Packers organization. I believe he'll return to the team in time for training camp. The NFC North is one of the weakest divisions in football, so -120 seems like a bargain to me.
