24/7 Wall St.: Major League Teams Americans Bet On The Most

NFL: 4. Green Bay Packers

Team value: #9
Attendance 2010: 566,362 (9th highest)
Pct. change attendance 2001 – 2010: +18.38% (5th biggest increase)
W-L Last Ten Years: 96-64-0 (5th best)

The Green Bay Packers play in a smaller market than most NFL teams, but the team is one of the most popular sports franchises in history. Legendary coach Vince Lombardi won the first two Super Bowls with the team, and the Pack has played in three more since, winning two, including last year’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Future Hall of Famer Brett Favre was quarterback and leader of the team for 17 years. When he left in 2008 many thought some of the wind would be taken out of the team’s sails. Instead, after one shaky year, QB Aaron Rodgers has led the team to consecutive highly successful seasons, and the team is currently the only undefeated franchise left in the NFL. Between 2000 and 2010, Green Bay had the fifth best record in the NFL.
