Two of the NFL’s most storied franchises will get together in Santa Clara with a trip to the Super Bowl on the line when the Green Bay Packers and San Francisco 49ers meet in the NFC Championship Game this weekend. Both teams used a bye week and home-field advantage to knock off wild card opponents in the divisional round, meaning two of the league’s most successful teams will get an opportunity to add to their trophy cases. The 49ers are looking for their sixth Super Bowl title and their first in 25 years, while the Packers will look to win it all for a fifth time. Without further ado, let’s take a look at everything you need to know ahead of the NFC Championship Game, including Packers vs. 49ers odds, game details, 2020 Super Bowl odds, betting trends, and how to wager on the matchup.
Here is the current look at the NFC Championship Game odds:
|Packers||+7.5 (-115)||+270||O 46.5 (-110)|
|49ers||-7.5 (-106)||-315||U 46.5 (-110)|
49ers Are Solid Favorite Over Packers
Let’s break down the current Packers vs. 49ers point spread.
Parity did not reign supreme in the NFC with the conference’s top two seeds reaching the conference championship game, so perhaps it’s also no surprise the No. 1 seed 49ers (14-3) opened as a strong betting favorite over the No. 2 seed Packers (14-3) once the matchup was set.
Over at DraftKings Sportsbook, oddsmakers installed San Francisco as a seven-point favorite over Green Bay with the game total at 45 points. Betting action throughout the week has since shifted both numbers. More on that in just a minute.
Though the Packers enter the NFC Championship Game riding a six-game winning streak and have the benefit of legendary quarterback Aaron Rodgers under center, it’s hard to overlook the 37-8 blowout loss they suffered to the 49ers at Levi’s Stadium on Sunday Night Football back in November–incidentally, that’s also the last time the Packers lost a game. It’s also hard to overlook a San Francisco team that controlled the line of scrimmage on both sides of the football against the Vikings on their way to outscoring Minnesota by a 20-3 margin over the final three quarters this past weekend.

San Francisco 49ers Super Bowl Odds
Note: You can check out the Super Bowl odds for all four remaining teams over at our Super Bowl 54 odds page.
The 49ers entered play last weekend with +320 odds to win it all, and those odds have since shifted to +160. Only the Chiefs (+135) currently have better odds. That’s little surprise after San Francisco’s dominant 27-10 win in which it outgained Minnesota by a 308-147 margin. And, of course, there was that aforementioned home beatdown of Green Bay back in November, so the love for the 49ers is warranted.
San Francisco was as a +3600 longshot to win the Super Bowl in the days leading up to the start of the regular season, but their odds quickly improved to +650 over the first two months of the season as they raced out to an 8-0 start. Following San Francisco’s wild 47-45 win over New Orleans in December, it briefly held the NFC’s best odds to win it all at +470, but a stumble at Atlanta ballooned that number to +700. Certainly, that would’ve been the time to lock in Kyle Shanahan’s squad.
Green Bay Packers Super Bowl Odds
Note: Once again, be sure to check out our full Super Bowl 54 odds page.
The Packers came into last weekend with +750 odds to win the Lombardi Trophy and moved to +550 after their divisional round win over Seattle, but that number has since ballooned back to +650.
At +1600 odds, Green Bay entered the season as one of the NFC’s top Super Bowl contenders and managed to stay there throughout most of it. After the Packers’ loss to the 49ers in November, they slipped to +1900 odds but that number steadily shortened during their late-season run.
