Why the Packers can cover
Lambeau Field was a house of horrors for opponents during the regular season, as Green Bay posted an 8-0 home record, winning by an average of 13.9 points. Including the NFL playoffs, the Packers are 24-3 and have a plus-10 point differential on their own field since Matt LaFleur became head coach in 2019, both of which are best in the NFL in that span. With a win on Saturday, LaFleur will join Jim Harbaugh as the only coaches in the Super Bowl era to reach the conference title game in each of their first three seasons.
Aaron Rodgers, who is tied with Joe Montana (45) for the second-most TD passes in NFL playoff history, made an impressive bid to repeat as MVP in 2021, as he led the league with a 111.9 passer rating and also had the best touchdown-interception ratio (37-4). The 38-year-old future Hall-of-Famer threw for 4,115 yards, marking the fourth consecutive season and 10th time in his career he has eclipsed the 4,000-yard plateau. Rodgers finished the regular season strong, throwing 20 touchdown passes and no interceptions over his final seven contests.
Why the 49ers can cover
Including its wild-card contest at Dallas last weekend, San Francisco has allowed an average of 18 points while winning eight of its last 10 games, the fourth-lowest total in the NFL. It has won three straight on the road, all against playoff teams, and has registered at least three sacks in seven consecutive contests. Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo is 3-0 when the 49ers are underdogs this season and 13-5 as a starter for underdog teams, giving him the best winning percentage (72 percent) in the league since the start of the 2000 season.
Including the NFL playoffs, the 30-year-old quarterback has gone 20-6 on the road over his career for a winning percentage of 77 percent, the second-best mark in the NFL since the 1970 merger behind Patrick Mahomes (26-7, 79 percent). The 49ers have excelled with Garoppolo under center during Kyle Shanahan's tenure as coach, going 34-15 (including the postseason), as opposed to 8-28 with other signal-callers. San Francisco has the distinct advantage in the kicking game, as Robbie Gould is 18-for-18 on field goals, the most without a miss in the Super Bowl era, and 31-for-31 on extra points during his postseason career.
