Green Bay Packers vs. Denver Broncos – Saturday, August 26th

Start Time: 9:00 pm ET

Venue: Sports Authority Field, Denver

TV Broadcast: Local Broadcasts

Online Streaming Options: NFL.com, NFL Game Pass

US Sportsbook Odds:

Green Bay Packers   +3 (-120)         42½ (-110)

Denver Broncos -3 (EV)       42½ (-110)

The Packers are coming off a 10-6 record that saw the franchise win the NFC North. Halfway through the season, Green Bay looked like they were out of the playoffs. However, leadership from behalf of Aaron Rodgers – with his now infamous ‘run the table’ comment, ensured that the Pack would make the postseason. Green Bay was one game away from competing for the Super Bowl. Now, a revamped Packer squad gets set to take the North, and the entire NFL, by storm. But first, a win over Denver is needed.

The Broncos are looking to return back to Super Bowl form. After winning the title, Denver delivered a 9-7 record that was a disappointment at best. Trevor Siemian returns under center and Denver will need better play from him if they are to be legitimate contenders in the AFC West. US sportsbooks don’t think they can get it done, but it’s never a good idea to underestimate the Broncos’ defense.

US Sportsbook Picks to Make: The Packers are undefeated thus far into the preseason. We’ll have to wait to see what the money line has to say about Green Bay in this contest. But judging from the spread, it stands to reason that the Pack will come in as underdogs.

The Broncos are also undefeated in the postseason. However, Green Bay just seems like the better pick in this matchup.
