In the most interesting matchup of the Wild Card Weekend, the Green Bay Packers will meet with the New York Giants at Lambeau Field. These teams know each other very well as the Giants were the ones that have beaten the 15-1 Packers back in 2012. They also met this year in Week 5 with Rodgers and company winning that game 23:16.
Betting odds opened up, and the Giants were a 6 point underdog going into the Wild Card Weekend against the Green Bay Packers. Now, the betting odds have the Packers as a 4 or 4,5 favorite to win this match on their own turf.
The Giants could cover this spread and even win the duel. Their defense is good enough to slow down Aaron Rodgers and his offense that is on fire right now. These guys are clicking on all cylinders, but so is the Giants defense. If they can keep it a low-scoring contest, the New York Giants could easily cover the spread. The lower the score, the better the chance is for New York to pull it off.
But, the Packers offense is back. They know how to handle that cold weather in Wisconsin. It’s going to be freezing, and Rodgers knows what he needs to do in those conditions.
Still, this is a tough game to pick. It can go either way. In these kinds of situations, the best thing that you can do is to take the Giants to cover this -4,5 spread. It will most likely be a highly contested and close duel. New York can even win this one, we wouldn’t be surprised if that happens.
