After another dominant win in Week 2, where they defeated the Detroit Lions, 42-21, the Green Bay Packers remain undefeated and tied atop the NFC North with the Chicago Bears. However, they have been much better than the Bears through two weeks, shown by their league-best plus-30 point differential through two weeks.

The big win over the Lions helped to prove these Packers are no fluke, and now they are the clear favorites to win the NFC North.

This career performance from Aaron Jones and big day from the Packers overall solidified them as clear favorites in the odds to win the division, at -145, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.

Heading into the season, the Minnesota Vikings were the favorites to take the NFC North. Not only have the Vikings been unable to win a game, they have looked like one of the worst teams in the league. Through two games, they have a minus-26 point differential, giving up an average of 35.5 points per game. Their odds to win the division is at +500.

The Detroit Lions are a distant fourth, at +1600, though they have had more good moments than the Vikings. The Lions have actually held leads against both the Packers and Bears, but a collapse in both games lands them at 0-2.
