  • The Packers have attracted 75% of the betting handle ATS, while 61% of sports bettors have taken the OVER in totals betting
  • Read on for all the trends ahead of Saturday night’s clash at Lambeau Field

Familiar foes are set to clash in NFC Divisional Playoff action, as the top-seeded Green Bay Packers play host to the surging San Francisco 49ers. Game time is set for Saturday night at 8:15pm ET on the frozen tundra at Lambeau Field.

The Packers captured a third straight NFC North divisional crown and the top seed in the conference while racking up a league-best 13-4 straight up record, and should be well-rested after enjoying a bye on Wild Card Weekend. SU winners in seven of their final nine regular-season contests, the 49ers closed out their schedule with a 10-6 record and entered the postseason as the NFC’s No. 6 seed. The Niners kept their current steady run going with an impressive 23-17 win in Dallas last weekend, and now face Green Bay in playoff action for the fourth time in nine years.

Winners in four of their past five playoff home dates, the Packers look to Saturday night’s matchup as 5.5-point favorites, while commanding 75% of the betting handle, and 72% of bets laid against the spread. The Packers maintain the confidence of sports bettors despite covering just once in four outings, and going 2-3 ATS in five playoff contests. Green Bay has also seen two of its three most recent victories come by a margin of two or fewer points.

Conversely, the Niners have won outright in three straight overall as betting underdogs, with their two most recent wins coming on the road. In addition, the 49ers have knocked off the Packers in four of their past five playoff clashes, including a narrow 23-20 win as 3-point chalk in their last postseason date at Lambeau Field in 2014.

Packers a Force on Home Turf

Sports bettor support has helped move the Packers to 5.5-point chalk since opening at -5. The Packers’ domination on home turf has certainly not hurt them at the sportsbooks. Green Bay compiled a sparkling 8-0 SU record at Lambeau Field during the regular season. And with six of those wins coming by double-digit margins, the Packers sport a 6-2 ATS record, and are 7-2 ATS in their past nine while favored by five or more points.

Last week’s win in Dallas extended what has been a solid run of success on the road for the 49ers. San Francisco has now won outright in five of seven road dates, and are 3-1 SU in their past four away contests versus playoff-bound opponents.

49ers Rising to the Occasion on the Road

Conversely, it has been the Niners’ recent exploits on the road that have blazed their trail back to the postseason. San Francisco has won two of three on the road, with both those victories coming against playoff-bound opponents.

A stingy pass defence has limited opposing pivots to just 193.6 passing yards per game over San Francisco’s past five contests. However, Aaron Rodgers enjoying an extra week to let his fractured pinkie toe heal, it remains to be seen whether the Niners can contain the NFL MVP favorite, who sports attractive +165 odds to connect on OVER 2.5 scoring passes on the 49ers vs Packers props.

Movement Aplenty on the Total

There has also been plenty of movement on the total, which climbed to 47.5 with the backing of 61% of bets, but has since fallen back to its original position at 47.

That defies the recent trend towards high scoring in recent clashes between these long-time rivals. Total points has easily topped 50 in four of their past five overall clashes, and in two of their past three playoff matches, fueling a 10-3 run for the OVER since 2003. That trend also extends to recent head-to-head meetings at Lambeau Field, where the total has topped 50 in four of five overall clashes.

Niners Fading on Moneyline

With the point spread tilting in favor of Green Bay as the week progressed, the 49ers have seen their moneyline odds fade since opening as a +180 bet.

The 49ers have been supported on the moneyline by just 23% of total bets and 28% of their handle. As a result, they have seen their odds fade for a second straight week, tumbling to +190.
