What does this game offer that none of the other three do this weekend? Quarterbacks Russell Wilson of Seattle and Aaron Rodgers have both won a Super Bowl. No other starting quarterback in the Divisional Round has. The Seattle-Green Bay winner will play Saturday’s Minnesota-San Francisco winner in the NFC title game. The Seahawks would visit the 49ers but host the Vikings. Ditto for the Packers.

Seattle is +550 to win the NFC title and +1200 to win the Super Bowl at Sports Interaction. Green Bay is +275 and +900, respectively.

NFL Point Spread and Betting Analysis

These teams have played three times previously in the post-season, most recently in the NFC Championship Game on Jan. 18, 2015, in Seattle. It looked like the Packers had that won with a 19-7 lead and just over two minutes left in regulation, but the Seahawks were able to rally thanks to a botched onside kick catch attempt by Green Bay’s Brandon Bostick (don’t even say that name to a Packers fan). Seattle won it 28-22 in overtime on a Wilson 35-yard pass to Jermaine Kearse.

They most recently played Week 11 of the 2018 season in Seattle with the Seahawks winning 27-24. Wilson’s second TD pass, to Ed Dickson from 15 yards out with 5:08 to go, was the difference. Rodgers had a big game with 332 yards and two scores but most of that came in the first half as Green Bay scored just three points in the second.

The Seahawks are 0-4-1 against the spread in the past five meetings. The over is 7-3-1 in the previous 11.

Seattle Seahawks

Seattle was one of three road teams to win last weekend, 17-9 in Philadelphia – the same exact score by which Seattle won there earlier in the regular season. The Seahawks got a big break last Sunday when Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz was knocked out in the first quarter with a possible concussion on a borderline dirty hit from defensive end Jadeveon Clowney. No penalty was called. Wilson threw for 325 yards and a score, with rookie D.K. Metcalf dominating with nine catches for 160 yards (most by any NFL rookie ever in a playoff game) and that touchdown.

Marshawn Lynch, signed off the street a few weeks ago with the team so ravaged by injury at tailback, rushed for a short score. Pete Carroll says “Beast Mode” will handle a bigger load this week after only six carries vs. the Eagles. Two starting offensive linemen, guard Mike Iupati and tackle Duane Brown, were out vs. Philly. Sounds as if Iupati will at least play this week. Seattle is 11-3-1 ATS in its past 15 road games.

Green Bay Packers

The Packers were one of three NFC division champions to finish 13-3. They lost a tiebreaker for the top seed with San Francisco but won one with New Orleans to earn the No. 2. Green Bay won its final five games under first-year head coach Matt LaFleur. Rodgers had another typically excellent season in throwing for 4,002 yards with 26 touchdowns and only four interceptions.

Running back Aaron Jones tied for the NFL lead with 19 total touchdowns. It’s not clear if starting right tackle Bryan Bulaga will play as he missed Week 17 in the concussion protocol. The Packers are 5-1 ATS in their past six playoff games.
