Will the Vikings beat the Packers?
Saturday nights Vikings / Packers playoff game will mark the 2nd time they have played each other in 1 week. The game is scheduled for 7pm central time at Lambeau Field in Green Bay. The Saturday night forecast in Green Bay says:
A chance of flurries and freezing drizzle before 3am, then a chance of flurries. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 17. West southwest wind 6 to 10 mph becoming north northwest after midnight.
The odds makers are favoring Green Bay by 7 1/2. This is what the folks at minnesota.sbnation.com are reporting:
After opening as 8-point favorites, the Packers have remained the overwhelming consensus with the opportunity to play at the comfortable confines of Lambeau Field. Even though Green Bay missed a chance at a first-round bye, the Packers are still one of the most common Super Bowl picks this postseason due to the presence of quarterback Aaron Rodgers. The Packers have also won six straight games against Minnesota dating back to the 2009 season, and will enter with a 5-2 mark over their last seven home games. Moneyline: Minn. +310, Green Bay -380 Over/Under: 46
I don’t care what they say, I am still believing that the Vikings can pull this one out. Let’s just remember the official Vikings slogan: “This Is Gonna Be Da Year!”
