NFL Conference Finals Odds - NFC and AFC Games TonightPublished January 18, 2015 by Sol FH
The Packers travel to Seattle to take on the Seahawks tonight at 20:05 (UK) for the National Conference Final.
Both the National and the American Conference Finals kick-off tonight, the first game at 20:05 between Green Bay and Seattle, followed by Indianapolis vs New England at 23:40 (UK). Both games are sure to be as exciting as one could possible wish, because the winners tonight will face one another at Super Bowl XLIX on February 1 from University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale Arizona.
The Packers and the Seahawks have already met this season, surprisingly way back in Week 1. Seattle won that game decisively 36-16 led by excellent rushing and a solid game from Russell Wilson. By the end of the season, both teams had 12-4 records but the Seahawks allowed much fewer points over the regular season. Tonight these two NFC rivals go helmet to helmet for a chance to make it to the 2015 Super Bowl.
Injured QB Problematic
Green Bay come into tonight’s game as the underdogs, led by a hobbling Aaron Rodgers. He could not hide the pain during their previous playoff win, albeit controversial against the Cowboys. The Pack must overcome a number of obstacles before winning the game tonight and having a gimpy QB is never a good way to start.
The Seahawks are the defending Super Bowl Champions and they have won their last eight-playoff games as favorites. Their defense has been the main reason for their success, making teams turn the ball over more times than not. Seattle have not given up more than two touchdowns in their eight game playoff-winning streak as favorites, nor have they given up more than two TD's against the Packers in their last two meetings.
NFC Conference Championship Props
The Packers are listed as 3.60 underdogs according to UK online sportsbook bet365 but they should cover the spread at 1.95 and +7. The Seahawks are at 1.31 and are 1.86 with -7 on the Spread. It is going to be a close game and bet365 has come through with first half props, team props and score props, offering punters many different and exciting ways to make lucrative cash.
