The 2019 NFC Championship is chock-full of interesting storylines. One quarterback in Aaron Rodgers fighting to solidify his legacy as one of the best quarterbacks ever with a second Super Bowl appearance and the younger Jimmy Garoppolo attempting to start his legacy with a championship.
On the sidelines, it’s the battle of the up and comers with young coaches Kyle Shanahan and Matt LaFleur.

Spread: Packers +7 ½ (-110)
This is a painfully clear sign that Vegas is taking a lot of their predictions with this game from the result of the Week 12 matchup against these two teams. In that game, the 49ers won handedly, 37-8, with the Packers not scoring until the 3rd quarter.
The 49ers pass rush constantly bullied Rodgers and while that is likely to be their game plan again this week, the return of Bryan Bulaga should help curb that problem. Bulaga missed most of the Week 12 matchup due to an ankle injury and the Packers offensive line has only allowed six sacks in their last three games including just three against the Vikings’ top 10 pass rush.
Rodgers’ playoff abilities should not be underestimated despite his rough outing a few weeks ago. With 38 passing touchdowns and 10 interceptions in his postseason career, thinking Rodgers can’t keep the Packers within a touchdown of this game is not a bet you want to make. So why not go the other way on it?
Over/Under: Under 46 (-105)
While the Packers offense is very likely to see a rebound from their dismal performance against the 49ers earlier, putting up points against them will still be a tall order. The 49ers defense is ranked in the top 10 in nearly every category this season and while a playoff Aaron Rodgers is a different type of animal, they’re still likely to give him some trouble.
The 49ers offense has only put up more than 28 points once in their past four games and that is unlikely to change against the Packers’ secondary. This one will be close but the under is definitely the way to go here.
Total Field Goals: Over 3 (+110)
I know, I know, betting on field goals is far from the most interesting bet you can make but this one is just too good to pass up on. Anytime an underdog pulls this much in your favor, you have to go for it. One or two field goals are a virtual guarantee in any football game so three is not outside the realm of possibility.
More so, the 49ers offense ranked 21st this season in red zone touchdown efficiency. So whenever San Francisco does make it inside the 20, they typically settle for a field goal. Combine that with the fact that while the Packers offense should be more successful against the 49ers than they were earlier, there is still a good possibility of them having to settle for a few field goals, you have yourself a pretty good bet.
