Packers Enter Divisional Playoff Week as NFC Chalk

Green Bay Packers Enter Divisional Playoff Week as NFC Chalk

January 14th, 2021 NFL Football, Sports Betting

Above all the Packers’ performance, this season has sold gamblers. Aaron Rodgers dominated at quarterback. Head coach Matt LaFleur has proven to be the perfect Green Bay fit in his two seasons. Of course, the frozen tundra of Lambeau Field is an advantage as well. As good as the Packers are the rest of the field is quite capable. Consider the Rams were a Super Bowl team two years ago. New Orleans has been knocking on the Super Bowl door for several years. Tampa Bay has been transformed as an NFL betting favorite by Tom Brady.

NFC Championship SBG Odds Overview

Naturally, the Packers are understandable sports betting favorite. Green Bay boasts a generational nationwide fan base. Add in Rodgers with the top seed and you get chalk. New Orleans has public credibility for years as a top tier contender. Drew Brees is a name brand quarterback. So too is Tom Brady, who is Tampa Bay’s marquee man. Los Angeles has the best defense in football. Just ask Russell Wilson and the Seahawks how good it is. Squares gravitate to home chalk and name brands. Sharps look outside the box for something less obvious.

Los Angeles Rams

The Rams won a lot of converts at Seattle in a 30-20 payout. In turn, they rendered Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson utterly helpless. Defensive coordinators will study this tape for years to come. All of which leads to Green Bay’s Aaron Rodgers. To bring to light the Rams rank first for overall and scoring defense. As well as against the pass. LA isn’t an easy out.

Green Bay Packers

Following their blowout loss at San Francisco in the 2019 NFC championship game the Packers vowed atonement. That game was an utter humiliation for Green Bay’s defense. Green Bay has shown improvement on defense this season. But now comes the real test. Aaron Jones rushed for 1104 yards for superb complementary football.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Tampa Bay is more than just Tom Brady. More emphatically they have a strong defense. A rushing attack ranked 28th in the NFL is a big worry. Late on Tampa Bay has covered four of their last six games. Brady continues to defy mother nature with 5014 yards passing this season

New Orleans Saints Team Overview

New Orleans has covered eight of their last 10 games. Increasingly the Saints have shown the best value on the board. Most important of all New Orleans has a complete defense. In fact, their one concern is what the masses think is a strength. Drew Brees lacks a game-breaking wide receiver.

In this situation, the Buccaneers and Brady attract too much casual money. So too do the Packers. New Orleans isn’t an NFL betting bargain either. To be exact the Rams combine true ability with a nice price.

SBG Best Bet: Los Angeles Rams.
