Playoffs Odds: NY Giants vs. Green Bay Packers point spread

Playoffs Odds: NY Giants vs. Green Bay Packers point spread Now that half the NFL Playoffs games are over, time to look at the Sunday clash between the New York Giants (9-7) and the Green Bay Packers (15-1), point spread and odds included. We had some surprises this week at the Divisional Playoffs and some bettors made out like bandits, but judging from the numbers posted by the odds makers, the Giants Packers game would not fall into the upset category.

 For the latest odds and point spread on the Giants vs. Packers game we used the numbers posted at the popular online sportsbook 5Dimes, which is in line with the Vegas sportsbooks and the rest of the online odds makers. At the sportsbooks the NY Giants vs. Green Bay Packers point spread is currently at -9 points chalk the Packers, while the Giants are +9 on the spread, but paying out on -135 odds. This is often an indication that a large number of people are placing bets on the Giants to cover the spread, hence the smaller payout, and is also a sign the the point spread could very well change before the game starts if people don't start placing heavy bets on the Packers. Since it's too early in the day and a few hours away from kick-off time, the spread could remain the same, but it's something to keep in mind.

 The bookies have also posted odds and totals on this NFL playoff game. The Packers are a heavy favorite to win the Sunday playoff game, the current champions sitting on -350 odds on a victory, while the Giants are holding underdog odds +290 to win the Divisional playoff game. According to the sportsbook, the total expected is set at 53 points, both over and under paying on -110 odds.

 Let's look at some stats on the two teams facing off each other tonight. The total has gone OVER in 6 of the NY Giants last 7 games when playing Green Bay, while the total has gone OVER in 4 of the Packers' last 5 games. But interestingly enough, the Green Bay Packers are 21-1 straight-up in their last 22 games, while the Giants are 5-2 SU in their last 7 games on the road. When does the Giants Packers game start? The kick-off time is 4:30pm EST.
