Packers-Falcons Prediction has your much-awaited Packers-Falcons prediction.  As with any middling opportunity, we need to suggest betting on both sides of this game by taking the Packers at +2.5 at (better get on this line fast as it won’t last long).  Then we have Atlanta at -1.5 at  Should the Falcons be victorious by 2 points, both your bets would win.  Note that the odds of this happening are slim but the risk is nominal vs. the potential reward. 

Spread action is very balanced despite the variations in lines.  The money line action is mostly going the Packers way at an 80 percent clip.  Green Bay would pay $11 or better for every $10 bet with an outright win. 

Important Things To Keep In Mind Regarding the Packers-Falcons Matchup:

Green Bay will have had less rest coming into this game and playing on the road.

Atlanta has lost only one game at home during the regular season.  The Packers have lost five road games.

Atlanta has a substantial special teams advantage.

Atlanta is not prone to turning over the ball.  Only two teams in the NFL have turned the ball over less than the Falcons.

Atlanta beat Green Bay by 3 points at home during Week 12.

Packers-Falcons Recent Play Trending:  Head-to-head, Atlanta has beaten Green Bay by 3 points in the two games they played this season and in October of 2008.  The line in both games was essentially the same, so we can look at similar teams coming into this Playoffs game.  The closeness of these two games certainly improves the odds when it comes to middling and hoping this game lands on the number two in favor of Atlanta.

Green Bay is coming back from injuries.  They’ve had an impressive run over the last three games, beating three teams above .500, though one can argue Chicago had little to play for in Week 17 while both Philadelphia and the New York Jets were stumbling a bit in recent weeks.

Atlanta has lost only one of its last ten games, and that was to the reigning Super Bowl champion New Orleans Saints.
