Football betting pressure is already on the Pack even before their first preseason game against the football odds as the ugly departure of Brett Favre is not forgotten. The Packers were horrible on defense and even worse on special teams for the 2008 football betting campaign and will use the preseason to tune up those aspects of the game to improve their chances of success against the football odds.
Quarterback Aaron Rodgers put up nice numbers last year but did not rally the Packers to football betting wins the way that Favre was famous for. Rodgers will not be allowed to get away with nice stats and no wins and he will spend the football betting preseason trying to improve his two minute drill.
Matt Flynn, a 2 year pro out of LSU, will serve as Rodgers’ backup this year and get plenty of football betting preseason work. Flynn has thrown just 5 regular season passes in his career so the Packers will want to get him plenty of work in the exhibition slate.
Brian Brohm is an interesting commodity as a 2nd year pro out of Louisville, where he put up big numbers. Brohm was a 2nd round draft pick of the Packers last year and is considered to have a lot of potential. He will get a good hard look during the football betting preseason.
The Packers had a pair of first round draft picks last April that figure to see plenty of preseason football betting action this summer. In an effort to shore up their defense the Pack took defensive tackle BJ Raji out of Boston College and outside linebacker Clay Matthews of Southern Cal in round one.
Both are needed for an immediate football betting impact to turn Green Bay’s fortunes around. Kicker Mason Crosby, a 3 year pro out of Colorado, had some erratic moments last year and will be expected to tighten up his game in preseason.
