With the 2020 Super Bowl just ending, now is the perfect time to look at Super Bowl 2021 odds on FanDuel Sportsbook. One team that immediately seems undervalued is this year's NFC North champion, the Green Bay Packers, at +2200.

The Packers were not a shocking underdog story when they made it to the conference championship this year, unlike the Tennessee Titans who lost in the AFC. Green Bay had a well-built roster with a young defense and exciting running game that complimented an experienced quarterback in Aaron Rodgers.

Rodgers is getting older, but he still turned in a great season in 2019, throwing for 4,002 yards with 26 touchdowns and only 4 interceptions in the regular season. His partnership with wide receiver Davante Adams (997 yards on 83 catches and 5 touchdowns in 12 games) has proven to be one of the best in the league. Don't forget 25-year-old running back, Aaron Jones, who had a breakout year with 1,084 yards rushing and 474 yards receiving not to mention 19 total TD's.

The Packers' defense was also on the rise in 2019-2020 with 41 sacks and 17 interceptions (tied for 3rd most). They even beat the Vikings (+1800) head-to-head twice this year, and made it much farther than non-playoff teams like the Cowboys (+1700), Rams (+2000) and Steelers (+2200), who all have better or equal odds compared to Green Bay. This is a solid team that may now have a chip on their shoulder heading into the 2020 season.
