MATCHUP - SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS AT GREEN BAY PACKERS
- Date: Saturday, Jan. 22, 2022
- Venue: Lambeau Field
- Location: Green Bay, Wisconsin
- TV-Time: FOX, 8:15 p.m. ET
OPENING LINE: PACKERS -5.5, ML -225, O/U 47.5 (-110)
The last four meetings have been played in San Francisco, so the 49ers better bundle up. Green Bay has won the last two meetings, with the most recent coming in Week 3 of the 2021 season. The Packers escaped with a two-point victory, covering as the underdog. The winning team has scored 30 points or more in five straight meetings, while the 49ers have scored eactly 37 points in their last two victories over the Packers. The point total has also gone OVER in three straight meetings, including four of the last five.
The 49ers are coming off an underdog SU victory over the Cowboys, marking the Niners third straight win and now winners of five of their last six games as underdogs. Despite this meeting typically going OVER, the Niners have gone UNDER the point total in six of their last seven NFL Playoff games and five of six games overall.
Green Bay has covered the spread in seven of its last eight home games, nearly unbeatable in Lambeau with SU wins in 14 of its alst 15 games at home. Not only that, but the Packers have covered the spread in four straight Divisional Round games. Green Bay has also won the first half in six straight games when facing the NFC West, so the Niners will have plenty to deal with in their frigid road trip to Wisconsin.
MATCHUP - LOS ANGELES RAMS AT TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS
- Date: Sunday, Jan. 23, 2022
- Venue: Raymond James Stadium
- Location: Tampa, Florida
- TV-Time: NBC, 3:00 p.m. ET
OPENING LINE: BUCCANEERS -3, ML-150, O/U 48 (-110)
The last meeting between these two teams occurred on Sept. 26 with the Rams winning at home as a +1-point underdog. The Rams will be underdogs once again on Sunday, only this time they will be traveling to Florida. The point total went OVER the set 55 as well, with 58 total points scored.
The Buccaneers have won four straight games SU along with eight of their last nine while covering in seven of those nine games. Tampa has covered seven of nine games inside Raymond James Stadium. Los Angeles is just 4-5 ATS on the road this season, but are 2-0 ATS when playing as the underdog (one win against Tampa Bay).
The Wild Card beating of the Arizona Cardinals saw the Rams snap a two-game ATS failure streak, as the Rams have now covered in five of their last seven games overall. The Rams have been alternating the point total market as well, with no back-to-back OVERS or UNDERS in their last eight games. If that pattern continues, their game against the Buccaneers will go UNDER the given total.
