Trend points to the over in the Buccaneers-Packers matchup
Wed, Jan 20th 11:58am EST
The over/under for the NFC Championship game between the Packers and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers is 51.5 points, per BettingPros consensus odds. That is the highest the total has been all week, as it opened at 51 and then was bet down briefly to 50.5 before buyback on the over forced it up to 51.5. This trend suggests the cold of Lambeau Field is not as much of a deterrent for scoring as many would think. In addition, Tampa Bay's offense has scored 30 or more points in each of the last five games, so there is confidence the Buccaneers will do their part in the scoring as well. It is not hard to figure that a game between Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady was going to produce more betting action to the over, and this trend only supports that logic.
