49ers vs Packers: Playoff Faceoff and Favorable Odds Await San Francisco

Santa Clara, California – The San Francisco 49ers are gearing up for their third consecutive NFL playoff run as they prepare to face the Green Bay Packers at Levi’s Stadium on Saturday for the divisional round. With a historical advantage over the Packers in the postseason, the 49ers are looking to secure their fifth consecutive playoff victory against their familiar foe.

Heading into the matchup, San Francisco holds a 5-4 lead in the all-time postseason series against Green Bay. Despite being the 10-point favorites, the 49ers understand they can’t underestimate the Packers, especially after witnessing their dominant performance against the Dallas Cowboys in the wild-card round.

Reliable odds from partner PointsBet reveal that San Francisco has -500 odds to defeat the Packers, whereas Green Bay’s odds stand at +375. The Packers, the NFC’s seventh and final seed, earned their spot in the divisional round with an impressive 48-32 victory over the Cowboys.

The 49ers have been favored to win Super Bowl LVIII since the beginning of the playoffs, with odds of +200. However, these odds have improved to +180 following the Dallas Cowboys’ and Los Angeles Rams’ eliminations during Super Wild Card Weekend.

Packers head coach Matt LaFleur recognizes the challenge that lies ahead for his team. He expressed excitement about the opportunity to face the 49ers, one of the league’s best teams, and acknowledged the need to rest and prepare for the matchup.

As the 49ers aim for their sixth Super Bowl victory, their first obstacle comes in the form of the Green Bay Packers. With favorable odds in their favor, San Francisco is determined to meet the expectations and advance in the playoffs.
