Packers vs. Seahawks NFC Championship Odds, Spread Picks & Prediction

packers-seahawks-betting-picks
The Green Bay Packers and the Seattle Seahawks started the season against each other, and one of them is going to see their season come to a close in the same venue which it began. The other though, is going to be heading to the Super Bowl in Glendale. The point spread features the Seahawks favored by 7.5, three points more than they were favored by in Week 1. The ‘total’ has opened at 46.5, which is exactly where it was at to kick off this season.


PACKERS-SEAHAWKS 2015 NFC CHAMPIONSHIP GAME ODDS:

OPEN: SEAHAWKS -7 | CURRENT: SEAHAWKS -7.5 | O/U: 46.5


1. Why the PACKERS will cover the spread: The Packers are never underdogs of this magnitude. Even when they were the No. 6 seed in the NFC en route to their Super Bowl win over the Pittsburgh Steelers several years ago, they were never this big of an underdog. Aaron Rodgers is clearly hurt, and he isn’t going to practice again this week in all likelihood, but even with that bum calf, he still looked darn good all game long against the Dallas Cowboys in the Division Round.

Eddie Lacy has had four straight games of at least 97 yards on the ground, and the defense, one which was much-maligned early in the season, has come to play of late and has made the plays necessary to keep teams out of the end zone often enough to let the offense do its job.

2. Why the SEAHAWKS will cover the spread: The reasons just don’t change for the Seahawks. They’re at home, where they virtually never lose in front of the 12th Man, and if not for a relatively meaningless touchdown last week against the Carolina Panthers, they would be on an eight-game run of games in which the opposition failed to score more than 14 points against them.

That touchdown which Carolina scored with just a few minutes left in the game was the first point that any team scored at Seattle in the second half of their L/5 games. Now add in the fact that Russell Wilson has thrown just two picks since Week 10 of the season. It’s all working for the defending champs.

3. Total Talk PACKERS/SEAHAWKS: The ‘over’ is 4-1-1 in the last six games in this series, including this year when there were 52 points in a 36-16 Seattle victory. The Packers have almost quietly played three of their last four and five of their last seven ‘under’ the number, while the Seahawks are also 5-2 in their last seven games for ‘under’ backers overall.


4. Betting Trends for PACKERS/SEAHAWKS: The Seahawks are now 6-0-1 ATS and 7-0 SU in their last seven games. They didn’t cover the NFC Championship Game last year against the San Francisco 49ers, but they did win the game, albeit by the skin of their teeth. Green Bay has gone 8-1 SU and 5-4 ATS in its last nine games, but it hasn’t won a road game in the postseason since 2011.
