These are the key numbers for the game between the Green Bay and the Niners. Packers are coming in after defeating the Seahawks 28-23. Niners defeated the Vikings 27-10. Niners are the favorite at -7.5 The over/under total is 46.5. The money line is Niners -335 and Packers +285. The Niners are the home team. Niners won the regular season game against Green Bay 38-6.

Aaron Rodgers is playing in his 19th playoff game. His record is 10-7. He has a 63.3 completion rate and 38 TDs over the span of 10 postseason appearances. Jimmy Garoppolo is starting his second playoff game.

The prop bet that will make this game interesting is the passing yardage of Garoppolo. His total is listed at 249.5. The price is -112. I project that he goes under.

I have a lean toward the over in the game. The Niners controlled the first game 37-8 so expect more of the same. They will get the lead early. Look for wagers that have the 1st team to score 10 or 20 points and go with the Niners. The Packers will lose by double digits again. I see a score of 34- 17. Follow me on Twitter.
