    NFL Picks: Giants vs Packers Odds and Prediction at SportsInteraction

    NFL Picks: Giants vs Packers Odds and Prediction at SportsInteraction

    The Green Bay Packers lived up to QB Aaron Rodgers bold proclamation by saying they'd "run the table" when they were sitting at 4-6 SU after Week 11. Six straight wins later and the Packers have claimed the NFC North crown and host a wildcard game.

    But facing a Giants team that was dominant on defense for the majority of the year might not be the matchup Green Bay was most looking forward too, especially since Eli Manning and the Giants have ended the Packers season multiple times before at Lambeau Field. New York won playoff games in Green Bay en route to their 2007 and 2011 Super Bowl victories and would love to kickstart a similar campaign with a road victory on Sunday.

    Thanks to "running the table" the Green Bay Packers have gotten plenty of support from bettors the past week regarding their Super Bowl chances.

    ESPN had an article stating that the Packers were the most popular Super Bowl bet in Vegas right now and that speaks to how much momentum they've built the past month or so. But this Giants defense held seven of their final 10 opponents to 20 points or less and when you do that in the NFL you are going to win a lot of games. New York may have some offensive concerns that bettors will be quick to point out, but history has shown that Eli Manning can get very hot this time of year and he'll do everything he can to match the Packers score for score.

    Green Bay may be getting all the support from the betting public, but generally speaking, that kind of support is known as the "kiss of death" in this industry. Las Vegas wasn't built by continually paying out the masses and chances are we will see a lot of very disappointed bettors ripping up their Green Bay futures Sunday evening.

    Yes, Aaron Rodgers led the league in TD passes and the Packers are on a roll, but their defense is still very suspect and if Green Bay's offense isn't putting up 28+ on the board, their chances of winning decrease dramatically. The Packers did score 23 points against the Giants earlier this year, but much of that came in the 1st half when they caught New York by surprise with a few things. The Giants only allowed six points in the 2nd half of that contest and we should see a similar performance by that defense for the full 60 minutes this time around.

    So while it's been a few years since New York has experienced the playoffs, their 9-0 ATS mark in road playoff games can't be ignored. The Giants also have the same season revenge angle working in their favor this week, and while grabbing the 5 points on the spread is nice, cashing in on a 2-1 underdog when they win this game outright is even better.

    Wildcard Weekend may be in the books after this game in Green Bay goes final, but it's only the first of four great weeks of NFL playoff betting action. Make sure you come back to stay tuned each week for more in-depth coverage and best bets of all the NFL playoff games this January.
