Odds as of January 20th at DraftKings
*Indicates Pass + Rush Yards
The Packers are 5.5-point home favorites, while the 49ers vs Packers odds see the total sitting at 47. San Fran has seen just one over in their last six. Green Bay’s gone over in six of their last seven. Both teams will have to bundle up; it’s expected to be windy and cold on Saturday.
George Kittle, Ready to Rumble
San Fran didn’t exactly have to take to the air to take down the Cowboys.
Six of the seven 49ers receivers caught three passes or fewer. That includes George Kittle, who brought in just one catch for 18 yards.
So moving to a frigid outdoor stadium on a Saturday night in January likely won’t improve that output, right?
“Playoff game, at Lambeau, 0 degrees. What else can you ask for?" – George Kittle #49ers
— OurSF49ers (@OurSf49ers_) January 19, 2022
Well not so fast.
Kittle’s lines have left a lot to be desired lately. That Wild Card dud capped off a four game stretch for Kittle where he failed to top 30 yards. His five catches against the Rams (for just 10 yards), was more than Weeks 16, 17 and 19 combined (four).
Prior to that, Kittle was red-hot for three games, averaging nine catches and 141 yards. And Kittle had a massive performance against the Packers in Week 3 when he pulled in seven balls for 92 yards.

This isn’t to say that Kittle will run up eight catches for 120+ on the Packers on Saturday. But a big, strong tight end in cold weather is hard to tackle. And a target that Jimmy G should look to often.
- The Pick: George Kittle OVER 4.5 receptions (-105); 1 unit
Ground and Pound With Aaron Jones
While Aaron Rodgers gets most of the headlines in Green Bay, they’ve developed a deadly 1-2 punch at running back.
Aaron Jones has turned into a back that can beat you in a multitude of ways. And while the AJ Dillon hype train has picked up speed heading into the playoffs, Jones will get his touches and, almost undoubtedly, produce.
The weather only helps his cause on Saturday night.
#Packers Aaron Jones said he's been told by many players in the league that Lambeau is one of the loudest stadiums in the NFL. Expects fans to bring that energy Saturday.

Yes, Rodgers thrives in the cold of Green Bay. But while chilly temperatures and blowing winds can sometimes hamper the passing game, nothing beats pounding the rock. And there’s a chance Saturday could turn into a battle of wills between these two ground games.
Despite trading off with Dillon, Jones has had no trouble with his total this year. He did it in nine of his 15 games, and fell six yards shy in another.
- The Pick: Aaron Jones OVER 53.5 rushing yards (-110); 1 unit

Odds as of January 20th at DraftKings
The Niners opened the scoring against the Cowboys. They closed out the regular season by scoring first in four of their last five. Green Bay meanwhile, has been a surprising slow starter.
Since their Week 13 bye, the Pack scored first in just two games, Weeks 17 and 18.
Green Bay should come out fast. San Fran gave up two scores last weekend, one passing and one on the ground to Dak Prescott. We’re backing both trends.

Davante Adams is always a threat, but with his anytime value set at -135, it’s a tough sell. As Aaron Rodgers’ go-to guy, it’s safe to say he’ll get looks early.
Speaking of Rodgers, he’s always a threat to take one in, and this is a playoff run he’ll want to leave his mark. His rushing TD in last year’s Divisional Round was his first in 14 playoff games, but we’ll back his feel for the big moment. For the 49ers, stick with Kittle to have a big game.
- The Pick: Davante Adams to score FIRST touchdown (+550); 0.5 units
- The Pick: Aaron Rodgers (+450), George Kittle (+175) to score ANYTIME; 0.5 units each
