The home team is 4-1 ATS in the last five NFC Championship games.

Betting Impact:

This trend favors the Green Bay Packers, who are -3.5 point home favorites over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, per BettingPros consensus odds. The line made a brief stop at Packers -3 before being bet back over the key number in the Packers' favor. Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady is 8-5 in his previous 13 conference championship appearances, while Aaron Rodgers is 1-3 in his four NFC Championship games. Rodgers' 258.8 passing yards per game in the conference championship is his lowest average of any round of the playoffs, and he has six touchdowns to seven interceptions in those four games. However, this is the first time he will play at home in the NFC Championship, and is hoping the team's success at home in his career will propel him to his second career Super Bowl appearance.
