With two weeks to play in the betting on NFL regular season, a couple of NFC hopefuls will meet at Lambeau Field in a game which could very well determine which of the two gets in to the postseason. The 9-5 New York Giants will clash with the 8-6 Green Bay Packers in a battle for the final of two conference wild card spots, with neither of the two looking like playoff teams the past two weeks.

The Packers have lost consecutive games to the Detroit Lions and New England Patriots to fall two games back of the Chicago Bears, conceding the NFC North crown and leaving them a game back of the Giants for the final wild card spot. Meanwhile, the Giants blew a 21-point fourth quarter lead to the NFC East-leading Philadelphia Eagles at home last Sunday.

Why To Bet On The Giants

The loss was one of the worst in years for a Giants’ team that many felt ranked with the Atlanta Falcons and New Orleans Saints as the best in the NFC at midseason. New York allowed 28 points in the final 7:18 of the game, something previously unheard of under head coach Tom Coughlin. There isn’t any room for error going forward if the Giants are going to get in to the postseason in 2011, and they’ll need to play the way they did during a three-game winning streak and through the first three quarters against the Eagles before the collapse in order to move one step closer to clinching their spot. New York has won four times on the road in six tries this season, and are ranked second against the pass. The Giants should get even more assistance in that department with snowy conditions expected for game time, which would allow Ahmad Bradshaw, Brandon Jacobs, and the fifth-ranked rushing attack to do their thing.

Why To Bet On The Packers

Pro Bowl quarterback Aaron Rodgers was cleared to return for Sunday’s game after passing a series of concussion-related tests and his performance will be key to how Green Bay fares. The Packers rank eighth in passing yards and don’t really have a strong running game, so Rodgers’ ability to guide the offense will be integral to their success. The only other time Green Bay lost consecutive games this season it ended up sparking a four-game winning streak. The Packers have won five of six games at home this season.

How The Game Will Play Out

As good as Green Bay has been at home for football betting this season, they will be going against one of the best all-around teams in the NFL, and one that is coming off of an embarrassing home loss. The Giants will pound the ball within the chilly confines of Lambeau Field, and their ability to stop the run will be key as well. New York ranks second against the pass and is known for their ability to get to the quarterback, which isn’t a good thing for a signal-caller making a return from his second concussion of the year.
