Packers-Bears Line: 2011 NFC Championship Has Green Bay Favored on Road

Packers-Bears Line

The Packers-Bears line had opened at -3 in favor of the road team Green Bay as these two teams will meet in the 2011 NFC Championship.  Remarkably it is their first post season meeting since 1941 (7 days after Pearl Harbor was attacked).  There has never been an NFC Championship between these two teams.  Bookmaker.com posted the 3-point line even before the Seahawks-Bears game had concluded. 

Green Bay destroyed Atlanta on Saturday by a score of 48-21.  The Packers awaited the winner of the Seahawks-Bears game.

With the Bears getting off to an early double digit lead, it did not appear as if the Seahawks would be able to catch up on the road, where they have played terribly throughout the regular season.

One of the highlights of Saturday’s game was Aaron Rogers having the second-highest completion percentage in a 300-yard passing game in NFL postseason history Saturday.

This game promises to be one of the most wagered on events of the 2011-2011 NFL season.

Following Notre Dame's big win over Wisconsin, we will see the Badgers team rating take a nose dive.  Michigan beat Rutgers by a touchdown and this should boost their rating further.  Remarkably, had Wisconsin not have lost so badly to the Fighting Irish Saturday, Michigan would only be a -1 favorite coming into the Week 5 game.  We are anticipating the Badgers to fall to around 30th for a rating of 77 while Michigan rises a bit to overtake Clemson's 87.51 prior to their loss to NC State.
