Packers vs 49ers Betting Line

Published on January 9th, 2013 1:30 pm EST
The Green Bay Packers will travel to San Francisco to do battle with the 49ers on Saturday night. The winner of this game will advance to the NFC Championship to do battle against the winner of Seattle/Atlanta, while the loser will go home.

San Francisco and Green Bay squared off against each other in Week 1 of the regular season, with the 49ers managing to win 30-22. This ended up being the Packers' only loss on home soil this season.

The venue will change this time around, as San Francisco will be hosting the Packers. San Francisco finished the regular season with a 6-1-1 record at home, while the Packers were just 4-4-0 on the road.

There are a number of interesting questions heading into this game on Saturday, including:

-how will Colin Kaepernick perform in his first ever postseason game?

-what type of defensive schemes will the Packers use to confuse Kaepernick?

-will the 49ers' defense be able to contain Aaron Rodgers and the Packers' offense?

The key match-up in this game is Aaron Rodgers vs the 49ers defense. If Rodgers can get going, it will likely be a long day for the 49ers and their defense. When Aaron Rodgers gets into a rhythm, he is nearly impossible to stop. The 49ers will need to get to Rodgers early and often in order to win this game.


The 49ers are currently 3 point favorites. Here are the betting odds as of this moment:

Green Bay Packers, +3, -130
San Francisco 49ers, -3, +110

The Over/Under line is currently set at 45 points:

Over 45 Points, -110
Under 45 Points, -110
