The Green Bay Packers played against San Francisco 49ers on Sunday night. It was an exciting day in week 12 of the NFC playoffs. According to Casino.org, Packers seemed likely to upset Niners at home despite being the underdogs in the game. The Packers mostly play defensive games, but against Niners, they considered changing. Despite the odds, both teams were prepared to lock in the postseason. DraftKings had Green Bay and San Francisco both at -200. In that case, a bet of $100 would have amassed a profit of $5.
A bettor could also have taken on +100 odds that Niners won’t qualify for NFC top six in the unlikely outcome, but they would target a profit of $1000.
At 1:00pm ET, Carolina Panthers played against New Orleans Saints at Mercedes Benz Stadium. Carolina desperately needed to win the game to keep their playoff hopes alive. Oddsmakers were in favor of New Orleans to eliminate Panthers from postseason consideration.
Another Sunday game was Philadelphia Eagles, who hosted Seattle Seahawks. Phillies were the favorite to win the game. ESPN Power Index gave Philadelphia a 42 percent of making the playoffs, but a loss would significantly reduce that chance.
Cleveland Browns and Pittsburgh Steelers were out to keep their Wild Card dream. Browns were favorite at home against Miami Dolphins, while Steelers were favorite against Cincinnati.
