The San Francisco will face the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Divisional Playoffs on Saturday

Game time is scheduled for 8:15 p.m. at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisc. The game will be televised and broadcast on FOX and FOX Deportes.

The 49ers were the only underdog to win the wild card weekend, and they are a dangerous proposition for the Packers. Green Bay needed a last-second field goal from Mason Crosby for a 30-28 win over San Francisco on Sept. 26.

San Francisco quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo is trying to lead another Super Bowl run with coach Kyle Shanahan, and the Niners will test Green Bay with a pair of playmakers who had over 1,000 scrimmage yards in Eli Mitchell and Deebo Samuel. Tight end George Kittle is also a mismatch in midfield. San Francisco has a few key injuries on defense worth watching this week.

Green Bay is trying to return to the NFC Championship Game for the third straight year. Aaron Rodgers is the favorite to win a third NFL MVP award, and favorite target Davante Adams is a problem for the 49ers. The Packers also had a week off to rest, and a few point guards who ran out of time during the regular season could return.

It’s a classic NFC blue blood match with implications that could carry over into next season. Here’s everything you need to know about betting on the 49ers vs. Packers in the 2022 NFL Playoffs, including updated odds, trends and our predictions for the Divisional Playoff game:

Three trends to know

—Green Bay was 8-0 S/U and 7-1 ATS at Lambeau Field this season, and they are 24-3 S/U and 19-8 ATS at home under coach of third year Matt LaFleur. Green Bay has beaten NFC West Seattle and Los Angeles in the home divisional round for the past two seasons.

—San Francisco has also played the road warrior role well this season. The 49ers are 7-3 S/U and 6-4 ATS on the road this season, and they’re 3-0 ATS and 3-0 S/U as an underdog in 2021.

—The 49ers were 4-5 S/U in games decided by seven runs or less. The Packers were 5-3 S/U in the same situation. San Francisco was a 3.5-point favorite in the regular-season encounter.

Three things to watch out for

Rodgers to Adams

The 49ers had no answer for Adams in the regular season game. He had 12 catches for 132 yards and a touchdown, and he had the catch that set up the game-winning field goal. Rodgers will likely look to set the tone with his favorite receiver, and San Francisco could be without two key players in Nick Bosa (concussion protocol) and linebacker Fred Warner (ankle). Look for Rodgers to target Adams on the perimeter early, but it won’t be long until that first deep shot against the 49ers secondary.

Who directs the ball?

Of course, Green Bay must have a regular game between Aaron Jones and AJ Dillon. It won’t be easy against a San Francisco defense that has allowed more than 100 rushing yards in just one of its last 10 games. The 49ers, meanwhile, will be looking to control the clock around Jimmy Garoppolo with Mitchell and Samuel, who has become one of the game’s most exciting dual threat players. was not in the lineup in the first meeting. Green Bay needs to keep pressure on the defense with Kenny Clark, and the Packers defense is spot on here.

Jimmy Garoppolo’s shoulder

Garoppolo suffered a shoulder injury in the wild card win over the Cowboys, and his future with the 49ers remains in doubt. He led the go-ahead in the regular season game with the Packers, and he was able to attack in midfield with Kittle and Samuel. Those are mismatches for the Packers secondary, and the fix for Green Bay defensive coordinator Joe Barry is simple. Increase blitz pressure. The Packers could get Za’Darius Smith back for this game, and he could factor in third-and-long situations. If the pressure lands, turnovers will follow.

Statistics that matter

We’re not talking about the actual weather, although the forecast calls for what could be a low of two degrees on Saturday night. Green Bay have managed to build a comfortable first-half lead in their last two Divisional playoff games. The Packers led the Rams 19-10 at halftime last season and the Seahawks 21-3 in 2019. Green Bay also took a 17-0 lead over San Francisco in the regular season meeting and led 24-14 in the second half. . The 49ers can’t let the Packers build an early cushion at home this time around.

Prediction 49ers vs. Packers

Rodgers will be hearing all week about the 0-3 playoff record against the 49ers, and there will be flashbacks to the 2019 NFC Championship Game loss. San Francisco rushed for 285 yards in that game and Garoppolo didn’t. threw only eight passes. It’s a bit different on the road, although the cold conditions might help San Francisco a bit. Green Bay, however, follows the same formula that made them tough to beat at home. Rodgers controls the attack. The Packers settle for field goals in the first half, but a TD pass to Adams and a productive running game are the difference. Garoppolo is forced into too many thirds and longs, and a late turnover seals Green Bay’s third straight trip to the NFC Championship Game.

Final score: Packers 31, 49ers 24
