SAN FRANCISCO, CA (The Spread) – While the line in the 2012 NFC Championship Game opened as a pick’em, the odds have now swung in favor of the 49ers.

NEW YORK: The Giants pulled off the biggest upset of the playoffs by knocking off the defending Super Bowl champion Packers in the Divisional round. New York was a 7.5-point underdog but shocked many observers with a 37-20 outright victory. Eli Manning completed 21 of 33 pass attempts for 330 yards and three touchdowns, while receiver Hakeem Nicks caught seven passes for 165 yards and two touchdowns. Defensively, the Giants forced four turnovers while defenders Osi Umenyiora and Michael Boley combined for four sacks. The Giants have now covered in four straight games and six of their last seven games.

SAN FRANCISCO: Speaking of upsets, the Niners topped the Saints in a wild 36-32 victory as the two teams combined for 34 points in the fourth quarter alone. Alex Smith threw three touchdown passes in the win while Vernon Davis caught seven passes for 180 yards and two touchdowns, including the game-winning score with nine seconds remaining. It was the third time the Niners covered in four weeks, and the 13th time in 17 games this season that San Francisco covered the spread. The 49ers also covered as 4-point favorites against the Giants in Week 10 of the regular season, as they won by a 27-20 score.
