NFC Divisional Playoffs: Falcons vs. Packers


The Atlanta Falcons will host the upstart Green Bay Packers in the NFC Divisional playoffs. The latest NFL sports betting odds posted by Skybook have the Falcons listed as two point (-120) favorites with the total set at 43.5.
The Atlanta Falcons have been overlooked all season but is a very good team. They will get to host a NFC playoff game by having an above average season and winning the NFC South. The Falcons have the best overall record in the NFC rewarding them with home field advantage throughout the playoffs. The Green bay Packers have much more hype coming into this game.
The Packers backed in the playoffs and were rewarded with a game on the road against Philadelphia. The Packers got a great performance by quarterback Aaron Rodgers and the Packers defense shut down the quick strike offense of the Eagles. They held Michael Vick off from making a last minute heroic attempt to win it for the Eagles, and now ride momentum into the Georgia Dome.
This is a rematch from a regular season game when the Falcons beat the Packers by a score of 20-17. This game could be just as close. Matt Ryan looks to improve on a sensational home record as he has only lost twice in the cozy confines of the dome.
The sports betting trends for this playoff game reveal some interesting betting angles.
The Packers are 15-5-1 ATS in their last 21 games as a road underdog, 15-5-1 ATS in their last 21 games as a road underdog, and 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games overall.
The Falcons are 6-1 ATS in their last seven against the NFC, 6-1 ATS in their last seven games following a win and 7-1 ATS in their last eight games overall.
In a closely contested battle between two teams vying for the right to represent the NFC in a championship game, it could come down to mere inches. This game has the potential to be the most exciting game of the weekend.
