The Green Bay Packers and San Francisco 49ers will meet for the second time this season when they square off at Candlestick Park on Saturday. The stakes are a bit higher this time around, though, as Saturday’s 2013 NFL Playoff Divisional Round winner will move onto the NFC Championship Game. NFL Odds are favoring San Francisco, the victor in the first meeting, at -3 against the spread; the Over/Under is set at 44.5 points.
San Francisco and Green Bay opened their respective seasons against one another with a September 9th showdown at Lambeau Field. The Packers were a -5 against the spread favorite in that contest, but the Niners pulled off a 30-22 upset despite a furious fourth quarter rally from Aaron Rodgers and company.
With the roles reversed this time around, San Francisco is hoping to avoid being upset by a Green Bay team that had its share of impressive road performances. The Packers went 4-4 away from home, but they were competitive in all of their road with the exception of a 38-10 loss to the Giants at MetLife Stadium.
Green Bay, which defeated the Vikings 24-10 at Lambeau in last weekend’s Wild Card round, has also experienced a fair amount of success as a road dog of 0 to 3.5 points. The Packers are 5-5 straight up and 7-3 against the spread in their last 10 games in said role.
The Niners were nearly perfect at home this season, though, posting a 6-1-1 record as a host. San Francisco’s lone home loss came against the Giants way back in mid-October while the tie took place on November 11th against its NFC West rival St. Louis.
San Francisco has not, however, fared well against the Packers at Candlestick Park. The 49ers are 1-6 straight up and 0-7 against the spread going back to 1989 when hosting Green Bay.
