Packers, Brett Hundley Betting Props Available With Aaron Rodgers Out for Season

How good is third-year quarterback Brett Hundley as he prepares to replace the injured Aaron Rodgers, who suffered a broken collarbone last week?

Fans of the Green Bay Packers and NFL bettors will find out the answer to that question this Sunday when Hundley and his team host the New Orleans Saints as 5.5-point underdogs at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com.

Green Bay head coach Mike McCarthy thinks enough of Hundley that he has not publicly stated he is interested in bringing in another veteran signal-caller to challenge the UCLA product for the starting job. Hundley was the team’s fifth-round pick in the 2015 NFL Draft and slipped after a somewhat disappointing junior season for the UCLA Bruins.

Hundley looked good in the preseason, which is one reason why McCarthy is giving him a shot.

So how will Hundley fare versus the Saints in his first career NFL start? You can wager on him throwing over/under 1.5 interceptions, with the under favored at -150 (bet $150 to win $100) on the NFL props board for Week 7.

The under is an even bigger favorite on o/u 1.5 touchdown passes at -200. In addition, the o/u on his total passing yards against New Orleans is listed at 230.5.

Of course, the Packers could eventually sign someone like Colin Kaepernick or Tony Romo, both of whom are out of football right now. But the odds of either one playing a game for Green Bay are listed at +700 (bet $100 to win $700).

Do you think Brett Favre could be lured out of retirement? Then you can get +5000 on the Hall of Famer suiting up in the green and gold once again.

Regardless of who leads the Packers the rest of the way, their odds to win the Super Bowl have taken a major hit without the two-time NFL MVP Rodgers under center.

They are also now small underdogs to make the playoffs at +110, and their over/under win total has fallen to 8, with the over slightly favored at -130. The price on Green Bay not qualifying for the postseason for the first time since 2008 is a solid favorite at -150.

Jared Goff Raises Thousands for California Wildfire Victims

Los Angeles Rams quarterback Jared Goff, who grew up in Northern California, launched a GoFundMe Tuesday to aid those affected by the raging wildfires in Northern California.

Goff hails from Novata, Calif., and has already raised thousands for victims from Northern California. On his GoFundMe page, the second-year quarterback explained his efforts:

As of Thursday, Goff's fund has raised $29,720 of its $50,000 goal. Rams offensive lineman Andrew Whitworth added a $10,000 donation and is among over 130 contributors through two days. Whitworth also donated $25,000 to the Vegas Victim Fund earlier this month and contributed $5,000 to Eagles defensive end Chris Long's foundation on Wednesday.

The fires have destroyed more than 5,700 homes and business over the past week, with entire neighborhoods reduced to ash. At least 40 people have died and several people are still reported missing, making this the deadliest wildfire in state history.

Goff, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, attended the University of California and currently ranks No. 7 in the NFL with 1,484 passing yards on the season. After a rocky rookie season where he played just seven games, the 23-year old Goff has thrown eight touchdown passes against three interceptions to lead the Rams to a 4-2 start.

The Morning Huddle: Andrew Luck, Teddy Bridgewater Headed in Opposite Directions

All of a sudden, a 2017 season without Andrew Luck seems like a distinct possibility. There was a time when the Colts hoped their quarterback would be ready for Week 1 following offseason surgery for a shoulder injury he'd been dealing with since 2015. Hope returned when Luck showed up at practice two weeks ago and began throwing. But now, he's being shut down again for the time being in response to soreness in his recovering arm.

Indianapolis GM Chris Ballard would not rule out Luck's chances of playing this season, opting to not put him on IR, but Wednesday’s news indicates we are likely at least a month away from him being back to 100 percent, and if the Jacoby Brissett-led Colts are, say, 3-7 at that point, is it worth throwing the franchise cornerstone back into the mix?

While gloom blanketed Indy, optimism was in the air in Minneapolis, where video showed Teddy Bridgewater finally returning to practice, to the sound of David Eisley and Bob Kulick's Sweet Victory no less. It was a hard-earned moment of cheer for Bridgewater, who went down with a gruesome knee injury just before the 2016 season. But a full return remains a ways off. Just ask Luck. The road back to the field is rarely short and never straight.

PRESS COVERAGE

1. JPMorgan media analyst Alexia Quadrani alerted the firm’s clients to poor NFL ratings data as it concerned CBS and FOX’s stocks. Credit Suisse, meanwhile, lowered its forecasts for the two companies as ratings drops impact the bottom line for the league and its partners.

2. DeShone Kizer is back in as the Browns' starting quarterback, and you can’t help but feel the team is hardly setting its rookie up for success.

3. FiveThirtyEight has done some in-depth analysis on the political leanings of NFL fans. Patriots fans lean farther right than you might expect, Packers fans farther left. But the biggest takeaway is that football fans are the least partisan of any major sport. It's the rare league that reaches across the aisle.

4. Eli Manning is the most overrated quarterback. I didn’t say it, NFL players did.

5. The Steelers have a Le’Veon Bell problem. The running back is powering the Pittsburgh offense, but he's also on pace for a team-record 437 touches. Will Mike Tomlin be able to take his foot off the pedal before it’s too late?

6. Washington running back Chris Thompson says he's not letting his family come to the Eagles game in Philadelphia. “Philly fans are some of the meanest fans I’ve ever experienced,” he said.

7. The Institute for Diversity and Ethics in Sport ?has released its newest report on the NFL. “I’ve been disturbed for the past couple of years at the decline in what I consider to be the two key positions of head coach and principal in charge or general manager,” IDES director Richard Lapchick said. “So the fact that they went up in both categories and tied their all-time high in the coaching area was encouraging to me.”

8. President Donald Trump tweeted his displeasure with the league's anthem policy yesterday, while Jaguars owner Shad Khan provided a potential explanation for Trump's interest in the NFL. “He’s been elected President, where maybe a great goal he had in life to own an NFL team is not very likely,” Khan told USA Today. “So to make it tougher, or to hurt the league, it’s very calculated.”

9. Dallas will host the NFL draft this spring after Philly "changed the game."

10. Patriots linebacker Harvey Langi was involved in a serious car accident Friday along with his wife. Three days later, they finally reunited during this heartwarming video.
