NFC Title Game Spread Climbing

Is Point Spread in Packers vs. Falcons NFC Title Game Climbing? 1/22/17

Are oddsmakers on the verge of bumping the point spread in today's NFC Championship Game up again?

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Falcons are currently a 5.5-point favorite over the Packers for today's 3:05PM ET kickoff. That said, the spread appears to be climbing to Atlanta -6 at several online and Vegas sports books. Thus, if you like Green Bay, it appears as though you could get the Packers at a better number if you're patient but if you like Atlanta, now is the time to jump.

While 6 isn't a traditional number in football (normally bettors worry about 3, 7, 10 and 14), given the amount of extra points that are missed, it has become more significant over the last two seasons. Plus, six is now the winning margin of some overtime games, so if you like the Falcons, there is better value to have them at -5.5 instead of -6.

The Packers have been a great bet in this matchup historically, covering in four of their last five games in Atlanta, including earlier this season when they lost to the Falcons 33-32 as a 4-point underdog. Speaking of the dog, the underdog is 8-2 against the spread in the last 10 meetings between these two teams while the road team is a perfect 5-0 at the betting window in the last five matchups.
