The line in the Green Bay Packers’ season opener vs. the New Orleans Saints says everything about the uncertainty surrounding starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
If you had any questions about Aaron Rodgers’ long-term status with the Green Bay Packers, take a gander at the opening betting line in their season opener at the New Orleans Saints.
You can look through the list of all the betting lines from WynnBET, but you will not find a line to wager on in the Packers vs. Saints game just yet. In fact, it is one of only two games without a line on the day of the 2021 NFL schedule release. This means one thing and only one thing: The bookmakers have no idea if Rodgers will play another snap for the Packers in his career.
Until we know if Rodgers is playing for the Packers in 2021, we may not get a line for this game.
Green Bay Packers face uncertainty surrounding quarterback Aaron Rodgers
Even if the Packers do open up on the road at New Orleans, we cannot say for certain who the two starting quarterbacks will be in FOX’s America’s Game of the Week. With Drew Brees retiring, either Jameis Winston or Taysom Hill. Knowing how head coach Sean Payton operates, he may even go with the rookie Ian Book out of Notre Dame for all we know, just to mess with Green Bay.
As far as the Packers, Green Bay is praying it can work things out with Rodgers because if he is not there Week 1 starter, this team is screwed, no matter how much they overdrafted Jordan Love out of Utah State by. There is a real possibility Rodgers is dealt to an AFC West team like the Denver Broncos or the Las Vegas Raiders, who do not have a line for the Week 1 game either at this time.
A lack of a betting line only indicates the amount of uncertainty surrounding Rodgers in Green Bay.
