The Green Bay Packers played the Seattle Seahawks in Week 1 as the first game of the season. This week, the Packers will look to avenge their 36-16 loss in the opener. Both teams are different teams than in that first meeting, but Bovada sees the Seahawks as 7.5 point favorites at home.

Green Bay linebacker Clay Matthews was fined $15,000 for a hit on San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick during the teams’ season opener.
