When these same two teams met in Week 8, it was the Falcons (12-5 SU, 11-6 ATS) winning 33-32 on a last-minute touchdown pass from Matt Ryan to Mohamed Sanu. Green Bay (12-6 SU, 11-6-1 ATS) still cashed in as a 3-point road dog. That was the start of a four-game losing streak for the Packers, but they’ve won all eight of their games since at 7-1 ATS. Atlanta has won five in a row at 4-1 ATS.
Ryan is the heavy favorite to win this year’s MVP award at –1000, but Packers QB Aaron Rodgers is second at +500, and Green Bay’s offense has driven the OVER to the pay window in each of the last six games. The OVER is also 14-2-1 for the Falcons this year, including 6-0-1 since their Week 11 bye. Expect a gigantic total for Sunday’s Conference Championships.
