49ers-Packers spread: San Francisco only road favorite for Wild Card weekend

Jeff Hanisch-US PRESSWIRE

The NFL playoff bracket is set, and the 49ers are traveling to Lambeau Field to face the Green Bay Packers. We've got the opening line as the 49ers are the only road favorite for Wild Card weekend.

The playoffs are here, and the opening lines are officially posted. The opening spread for 49ers-Packers has San Francisco installed as a 2 1/2 point favorite. RJ Bell had the early offshore lines, and Jeff Sherman had the line at the Las Vegas Hilton.

The San Francisco 49ers are the only road favorite for Wild Card weekend. They are traveling to Lambeau Field to face a Green Bay Packers squad that has Aaron Rodgers back in the fold. In most years, Lambeau is a tough place to play come winter time. While it won't be a walk in the park for the 49ers, the Packers defense struggles enough that the 49ers offense should be able to get clicking.

Or at least, they better get clicking if they want to win this game. The 49ers defense has made some big plays lately, but they've also given up some big passing totals to opposing quarterbacks. They've won games in spite of the big yards, but you can't play with fire like that forever. I'm a little surprised the over/under was not set higher than 49.

The 49ers head into this game at 12-4 overall, and 11-5 against the spread. They've surpassed the over/under number nine times. The Packers are 8-7-1, and 6-9-1 against the spread. They've also surpassed the over/under number nine times.
