Packers Receive Shockingly High Percentage of Moneyline Bets on FanDuel Sportsbook
The Green Bay Packers have an uphill battle ahead. They're 7.5-point road underdogs against the San Francisco 49ers, who already defeated Green Bay, 37-8, back in Week 12.
Interestingly, this hasn't deterred bettors much, as 82 percent of the moneyline bets on the NFC Championship have come in on the Packers, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
While the 49ers have arguably been the NFC's best team all year, there are some key betting trends that suggest the Packers should at least keep this one close.
Green Bay has only been an underdog four times this season. The Packers have gone 3-1 against the spread (ATS) in such contests, and notably, all four of those games came on the road.
The Packers also haven't lost a game since their Week 12 defeat, winning six straight and going 4-2 ATS during that span.
While the numbers suggest this could be a close one, it seems bettors are pretty confident in Green Bay this week.
