The expectation was that the 2020 NFC Divisional round would see the New Orleans Saints heading into Lambeau Field to take on the Green Bay Packers. However, the victories for the Minnesota Vikings and Seattle Seahawks have meant that we see the Aaron Rodgers and Russell Wilson rivalry in the playoffs this season. Both of these teams have been extremely hard to figure out this season. Let our NFL betting team help sort this Seahawks vs. Packers NFC matchup for you with some Divisional round picks!
Location: Lambeau Field, Green Bay
Time: 6:40 pm EST
Spread: Packers -4
There has been little movement on this game for either the spread or the total. The under is seeing the most significant lean of money, with over 60% of the money coming on the under. That could see the line shift down to 46, and potentially even lower, depending on the weather forecast.
Bet predictions from Ben Rolfe
I really do not like this game from a betting perspective. If the good Green Bay Packers show up, then they can easily handle a Seahawks team that is really struggling. However, if we get the meh Packers team we have seen at times this year, then give me the Seahawks and Russell Wilson. Something that has been a common picture this year is for the Packers to show up for half a game, but struggle to put together full games.
Therefore, I am going to attack this game by taking the Green Bay Packers to score under 24.5 points in what should be a cold game in Lambeau. That pick is reinforced by the fact the Packers have scored under 24 points in seven of its last eight, with the one over being against the woeful New York Giants.
1u – Green Bay Packers Under 24.5 Points | -113
Bet predictions from Ryan Gosling
In the last game of the weekend, the Seattle Seahawks travel to Green Bay to take on Aaron Rodgers and their struggling offense. This one should be interesting, with a battle of two well-known quarterbacks.
Green Bay has held a distinct advantage over Seattle when playing at Lambeau Field, covering the number in 5 of the last 6 matchups. However, this Packer offense isn’t the same as back in the day. They lean heavily on the run game now and have limited offensive weapons besides Aaron Jones and Davante Adams. Seattle’s defense, on the other hand, has been quite good as of late. They came up big on the road against Philadelphia and will pressure Aaron Rodgers from start to finish with Jadeveon Clowney leading the way.
For the time being, it is just a lean, but I think Seattle finds a way to pull this one-off. When you have Russell Wilson at quarterback, then you will likely be in any game. Seattle plus the points is my lean, but could very well become a play closer to Sunday.
Bet predictions from Jason Sarney
The Seattle Seahawks could very well be “that team” to put together a few road victories and sneak into a Super Bowl. Tell that to Aaron….JONES! The other Aaron, Rodgers that is, has a bit left in the tank, and he is ready to rely on some runners, and a friend in Davante Adams to move past Wilson and the Seahawks. Barely. Seattle covers, but the Packers move on and hold home field.
1u – Seattle Seahawks +4 | -107
1u – Under 46.5 Total Points | -110
Bet predictions from Chris Smith
Last weekend, I mentioned that the winner of the Eagles and Seahawks would be the team I’d most like to fade this weekend in the Divisional Round. That was before Minnesota upset New Orleans and sent the Seahawks to Green Bay, where they will face off against another home team I had hoped to fade in the Packers. As great as Aaron Rodgers is, the Green Bay offense has been consistently inconsistent this season.
In what’s essentially a coin flip contest, the Packers are favored by 4 points due to home field and rest. That said, the Packers were only 5-3 against the spread at Lambeau this season, while the Seahawks come in with an impressive 6-2-1 ATS record. Jadeveon Clowney was dominant at times in Philadelphia on Sunday and might cause problems for a Packers offense that has been far too dependent on Aaron Jones and Davante Adams this season. Russell Wilson is 4-3 lifetime against Green Bay, including a comeback victory in the 2015 NFC Championship Game. Even if the Packers lead late, I suspect Wilson can keep the Seahawks within one score, so getting more than a field goal is too much value to pass on.
1u – Seattle Seahawk +4 | -107
