NFC Wild Card: Vikings vs Packers Online Wager Tips

Playoff football begins Saturday, January 5, 2013 when the Green Bay Packers host the Minnesota Vikings at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin. Kickoff is slated for 8 PM ET in this NFC Wild Card game. Green Bay could have secured a first-round bye with a win in week 17 against the Vikings, but fell to Minnesota to setup a rematch of this division rivalry. The Packers are a better home team, so we will bet the Pack.

Green Bay Packers: Set to battle with division rival

Green Bay will be facing the Vikings for the third time this season, splitting the first two meetings with their NFC North rivals. Against the Vikings, Aaron Rodgers has thrown 16 touchdowns and just one interception in the last five games between the two teams. The Packers are 7-1 at home this season and finished with a 5-1 mark within the division, with the first loss coming in the final game of the season to Minnesota.

Minnesota Vikings: Going for two straight against division foe

After knocking off Green Bay in week 17 to secure the sixth and final spot in the NFC playoffs, the Vikings can now win a second straight game over the Packers. In Adrian Peterson’s career, the Vikings have lost five of six games at Lambeau Field, despite Peterson rushing for 100 or more yards three times in Green Bay. All three of those 100-yard rush games by Peterson were losses for the Vikings in Green Bay.

Out of the two Wild Card games scheduled for Saturday, this one between the Packers and the Vikings is without a doubt the more exciting of the two games. Green Bay has a lot going for it during this rematch, with the main factor being that it is a home game. Online sportsbook has the Packers as -7.5 (-110) home chalk. We will bet 15 percent of our bankroll Saturday for the spread and the Packers.
