These two teams played each other back on October 30, 2016 with the Falcons coming away with a 1 point win at home by the score of 33-32. The last 10 times these two teams have played each other, the Packers have won 6 out of 10 times straight up but Atlanta has been the money ticket winning 6 of 10 ATS. The game has played over 6 out of 10 times.

Packers Looking For 14th Trip To Super Bowl

The Green Bay Packers are 12-6 overall, 11-6-1 ATS and 5-4 on the road. They are on a 8 game win streak and their last 6 games have all played OVER the posted total!

In their last 4 playoff games on the road, the Packers are 4-0 ATS. In the Packers last 5 playoff games overall, they are 5-0. In the Packers last 5 Conference Championship Games, they are 4-1 ATS.

This year, the Packers are 5-0 ATS vs teams with a winning record. The Packers are 5-0 in their last 5 games in January. In their last 4 games vs. NFC teams, the Packers are 4-0 ATS.

Aaron Rodgers looks like a man possessed to win another Super Bowl and making plays that we haven’t seen him make in quite some time.

The offense is averaging 28 points per game but the bad part about the Packers is the defense is allowing teams to score over 28 points (28.6 PPG) on the road.

Falcons Offense One Of The Best In NFL

The Atlanta Falcons are 12-5 overall, 11-6 ATS and 6-3 inside the Georgia Dome this year. The Falcons are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 vs. NFC teams. The Falcons are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall.

The Falcons offense is primed and ready to go. They are as good as any offense in the NFL this year. They are top 10 in just about every category across the board.

The Falcons offense is scoring on average 35.1 points per game at home in the Georgia Dome but similar to the Packers, their defense is bad! The defensive unit is allowing teams to score 26.9 points per game at the Georgia Dome.

Points Will Be Plentiful In Atlanta on Sunday!

In this game, I look for a lot of points to be scored. You have 2 pretty similar teams playing each other, both with great offenses but having terrible defenses. Neither one of these squads can stop another so the score board workers will be busy!

I look for this game to play OVER the total. The official play for the NFC Conference Championship Game is a 1 Star play on Atlanta vs. Green Bay OVER the total of 59.5.
