New York at Green Bay- NFL Wild Card Preview and Pic

 

                                       

 

VietBet Game Line: Green Bay -3.5

VietBet Total Line: 44.5

 

The Wild Card Round of the playoffs wraps things up late Sunday afternoon at Lambeau Field with a NFC tilt between the 11-5 New York Giants and the 10-6 Green Bay Packers. Game time is set for 4:40 p.m. (ET) and it will be broadcast nationally on FOX.

 

New York at Green Bay Game Preview

 

New York reeled off nine straight-up victories in its last 11 games to earn the No. 5 seed in the NFC and it has also been one of top betting teams at VietBet during this run at 8-3 against the spread. The total stayed UNDER 47 in this past Sunday’s 19-10 win against Washington as a nine-point road underdog and it has stayed UNDER in seven of its last eight games. The Giants have gone 3-2-1 ATS in their last six road games and the total has stayed UNDER in seven of eight road games this season.

 

Eli Manning did just enough this past Sunday to help his team get the win with 180 yards through the air. More importantly, New York got a strong effort from its beleaguered ground game with 161 yards on 40 carries after averaging 88.2 yards on the year. The Giants’ offense is ranked 17th in the NFL in passing yards, but it falls to 29th when it comes to running the ball. The big difference this season has been a shutdown defense that is second in the league in points allowed (17.8).

 

Green Bay also needed a strong finish to ensure its spot in the playoffs and Aaron Rodgers and Co. got it done with a SU six-game winning streak to lay claim to the NFC North Division title. The Packers have gone a profitable 5-1 ATS during this current run and the total has gone OVER in eight of their last 10 games on VietBet’s closing line.

 

Rodgers closed out his season with four touchdown throws in Green Bay’s 31-24 victory against Detroit this past Sunday night as a 3.5-point road favorite. He led the league in touchdown passes this year with 40. Jordy Nelson and Davante Adams combined to catch 26 of those scores. The Packers also got a strong effort from their running game in that crucial win in Detroit with 153 rushing yards on 31 carries.

New York’s defense has carried this team for most of the season, but I think we are going to see some of that Manning playoff magic on Sunday afternoon. The Giants may not be able to get the SU win in a very tough place to play football in January, but both teams will do enough to take this game OVER VietBet’s current 44.5-point total line.
