Today we preview Packers Vs 49ers NFC Championship odds. The San Francisco 49ers will be trying to book a trip to the Super Bowl when they host the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship Game on Sunday. The game will be played at Levi’s Stadium and is scheduled to begin at 6:40 PM. ET.
The Packers defeated the Seattle Seahawks in the Divisional round. This to set up a rematch with the 49ers. San Francisco defeated them in Week 12, 37-8. The Packers couldn’t get going offensively in that game. Finishing with 198 total yards. They have played considerably better since that game and will be hoping their strong play carries over to this game.
Green Bay will need to do a better job defending the run. This after giving up 5.1 yards per carry in the first game. They will also need to do a better job bringing pressure on Jimmy Garoppolo. Jimmy G has a tendency to turn the ball over when facing a lot of pressure. How will this hurt Packers Vs 49ers betting odds?
The Packers will also have to avoid giving up big plays on the defensive end. The issue that cost them in their Week 12 loss. If they avoid turning the ball over and Aaron Rodgers plays better than he did in the first meeting, the Packers have a good chance to win this game.
The 49ers dominated the Minnesota Vikings in the Divisional round to advance to the conference championship. They ran the ball down Minnesota’s throat, especially in the second half to secure the win.
With the running game being so successful, the 49ers didn’t have to throw the ball a lot, which took a lot of pressure off Jimmy Garoppolo.
NFC Championship Odds for Packers Vs 49ers
In their first meeting against the Packers, Garoppolo threw for 253 yards and two touchdowns, including a 61 Yard touchdown pass to George Kittle.
If the Packers are able to prevent the 49ers from running the ball, expect another big game from Garoppolo.
