Football betting handicappers are awaiting the decision of Minnesota and Brett Favre as to whether or not he will wear purple this year against the football odds. There is no doubt that Favre would love nothing more than to play this football betting season with Minnesota, in the same division as the team where he made his fame; the Green Bay Packers.
Favre and the Packers had an ugly split up and he would bring instant credibility to an already solid Viking team that made the playoffs despite a mark of 6-10 against the football odds.
Everyone in football betting agrees that Minnesota has a great defense and that all they need is a good consistent quarterback to become a legitimate football betting threat to go all the way.
The Chicago Bears, speaking of new quarterbacks, acquired a good one this off season as Jay Cutler demanded to leave the Denver Broncos after last football betting season when head coach Mike Shanahan was fired.
Cutler has posted great football betting numbers but his maturity has now been called into question after the ugly departure from Denver. Chicago still has a respectable defense and Cutler makes them an instant football betting contender as they were 9-7 last year, but covered just 6 games.
The Packers went from a final four team in 2007 with Favre to a 6-10 team last football betting season. While Green Bay fans were patient last year they will begin to howl if the Packers stumble out of the gate. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers put up decent stats but led the Pack to no Favre like comebacks.
The Detroit Lions were the first team ever to go 0-16 in a season and they cleaned house afterwards. Jim Schwartz took over as coach and the Lions have nowhere to go but up after being the worst team in football for the past 5 years.
