How To Bet On Packers 49ers – Green Bay Tries to Secure Spot in NFC Championship Game

Green Bay Packers @ San Francisco 49ers – Saturday January 12, 2013 8:00PM EST

The football betting world has been waiting a while for this playoff game between the Green Bay Packers and the San Francisco 49ers. After getting knocked out of the divisional round at home by the New York Giants last season, the Packers have had a full year to think about that loss and work on what it needed to fix to be better. Everyone knew that the Packers needed a better defense, so Green Bay went out and fixed its defensive issues. Then the Packers started to add some depth to its wide receiver corps. The result has been an improved Packers’ team that is ready for this playoff game.

The NFL betting experts have been questioning San Francisco head coach Jim Harbaugh’s decision to replace veteran quarterback Alex Smith with second-year player Colin Kaepernick since it happened. While Kaepernick has shown flashes of brilliance in his short stint as the 49rs’ starter, he has also made a lot of mistakes. As Kaepernick prepares for his first taste of playoff football, many fans are wondering if going with the youngster was such a good idea. After all, Alex Smith played some of his best football under pressure last season. Kaepernick does not seem so ready for the glaring spotlight as of yet.

Why the Packers Will Win

The online betting sites are really expecting this to be a good football game, but the improved Green Bay defense could be the difference here. Last year, the Packers’ defense could not contain mobile quarterbacks like Kaepernick. This year, the front seven of the Green Bay defense has become quite adept at shutting down the run and containing sneaky quarterbacks. B.J. Raji has become a force on the defensive line that has allowed players such as linebacker Clay Matthews to be much more productive. A good defense is the key to the Packers’ win in this game.

Why the 49ers Will Win

The San Francisco 49ers truly feels as though it has a legitimate offensive weapon in Colin Kaepernick. But , as all young quarterbacks do, Kaepernick is struggling with his decision making process. Sometimes he makes very good decisions, and other times he makes some pretty bad ones. If Kaepernick can keep his game together and do what needs to be done to win, then there is little that can stop San Francisco in this game.

The Bottom Line

Once the Green Bay defense has dealt with the San Francisco offense, then that leaves Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers free to score points at will. San Francisco has a great defense, but the offensive line for Green Bay has been playing exceptionally well all season long. With Kaepernick under control, the Packers can put up the points it needs to stamp its ticket to the NFC Championship game.

Pick: Green Bay Packers
