  • Call it luck, call it coincidence, but the last two times the Giants met the Packers in the playoffs, New York has gone into Lambeau, beaten Green Bay and gone on to eventually win the Super Bowl. Is this simply a game to help set the stage for the third edition of Tom Brady vs Eli Manning? Probably not. The Packers are scorching hot right now and Aaron Rodgers has been surgically picking apart opposing defenses. If the G-Men want to come away with another win in G-Bay, they’ll have to figure out a way to score more than 20 points.

    SHARK BITES
    • The Giants are 2-9 SU and 2-8-1 ATS in their last 11 games as an underdog of 3.5 or less.
    • The Packers are 7-2 SU in their last 9 games at home against teams with winning records.
    • The Giants are 7-2 ATS in their last 9 games in wild-card games.

    Yes, the Giants have had one of the best defenses in the league all year long and, yes, Eli tends to turn on the afterburners when he manages to drag his teammates into the postseason, but can this team that averaged 19.4 points per game this season really go into Lambeau and beat the Packers on their home turf for the third straight time? Sportsbooks say no as they opened the Cheeseheads as 6-point favorites. That line had been bet down to a very digestible -4 at the time of writing and you should probably hop on the green and gold train if you think they’ll win straight up. The Giants have not covered the spread this season in a game they’ve lost.

    Rodgers is the key cog in the Packers’ miraculous turnaround as he’s thrown 18 touchdowns compared with zero interceptions in his last seven games, bringing his quarterback rating up to 104.2 – good for fourth in the NFL behind just Matt Ryan, Tom Brady and Dak Prescott.

    Additionally, the Giants have dropped two of their last three road games and gave up 24 points in both those matchups. New York is 2-5 this season when giving up over 20 points and it’s tough to find an offense the Giants have played that compares with the one the Packers have been rolling out the last few weeks.

    Sportsbook Odds & Computer Pick

    Sportsbooks, including Sportsbook, had set the Green Bay Packers as -6-point favorites on the Sportsbook line for this contest. The total was hovering around 47 earlier in the week (check for the current over-under lines at Sportsbook).

    Handicapping models based on recent betting stats and prediction formulas picked a 29-15 win for the Packers. Injuries during the week may cause the formula to be re-run, so check the NFL picks page before game time.
