MVP favorite Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers took care of business on Saturday, dispatching the Los Angeles Rams and their top-ranked defense 32-18. Green Bay now moves on to the NFC Championship Game, putting the No. 1 seed one game away from the Super Bowl.

The Packers won't know their NFC Championship opponent until Sunday's Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. New Orleans Saints Divisional Round game concludes, but odds have already been released by FanDuel Sportsbook for Green Bay's two possible matchups.

Packers vs Saints Odds for NFC Championship

If the Saints move on after Sunday's game, the Packers will be 2.5-point favorites at Lambeau Field.

New Orleans owns one of the toughest defenses in the entire league this season, allowing the fourth-fewest yards (310.9) and fifth-fewest points (21.1) per game. The Saints also rank No. 2 in Football Outsiders' defensive DVOA metric.

For a prolific offense like Green Bay's, they could major problems. However, the Packers won their previous meeting this season 37-30 on the road in Week 3.

Packers vs Buccaneers Odds for NFC Championship

If the Buccaneers move on after Sunday's game, the Packers will be 3-point favorites at Lambeau Field.

Tampa Bay has its own dangerous offense, with Tom Brady at the helm. Brady posted his most passing TDs in a season (40) since 2007 this year while being surrounded by weapons like Mike Evans, Chris Godwin and Rob Gronkowski.

This game will likely turn into a shootout, although it was the Bucs who came away victorious, 38-10, in Week 6 when these teams met earlier this season.

The No. 1 seed in the NFC is, unsurprisingly, favored in either of its possible NFC Championship Game matchups, but the Packers will face a serious challenge against either team.
