Gambling on the NFL Playoffs: Packers currently -7.5 favorites over Giants

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Las Vegas oddsmakers weigh on the pointspread for Sunday's Division Round matchup between the New York Giants and Green Bay Packers. Green Bay opened as a 9-point favorite at CRIS but bet down to -7.5.


"It does seem a little high, given the fact that the Packers offensive line has had some issues," Rood said about the 9 points. "But that week off is huge and factors into that as well. Home field advantage there in Green Bay is as good as any."

"If anything, it might come down a tad," Rood said about the line. "I hung 8.5 as opposed to 9 out there. A lot of places had 9. I think the more educated players are probably going to look to the (under)dog in this series and bet them a little more. The two sides obviously have their following of fans that will bet them regardless of whatever the number is. But I think the professional handicapper is probably going to side with the dog or stay away from the game. I don’t think you will see too many professional handicappers laying 8.5 or 9 with Green Bay."

"A little has changed between these two teams since they played last, but not enough to account for roughly a 5.5- to 6-point swing, is what essentially you are seeing now.

"An 8-point number with Green Bay at home, what that says is that if the teams were to play in New York, they would be a 1- to 1.5-point favorite," Fuhrman said. "They were a 7-point favorite in early December."
