For only the second time in Aaron Rodgers’ career, the Packers are the number seed in the NFC following the 2020 season. With a much needed bye week this past week, the Packers are gearing up to host the Los Angeles Rams at Lambeau Field this Saturday. The NFL odds at Sports Betting Dime are in favor of the Packers. They’re currently -6.5 favorites.
Adding to the excitement of this Saturday’s matchup, in a change from the regular season, the team sold 6,500 tickets to the game; so that should provide some motivation and much-needed support for the Pack. It also helps them utilize home field advantage even further.
Be sure to check out Rob’s preview of the game in which he presents the case that the Rams are battered and bruised going into this matchup with the Packers on their home home-turf(read: home-grass).
It goes without saying that the Los Angeles Rams are not well acclimated to Green Bay’s January weather. Early weather reports are calling for snow showers and 16mph wind speeds.
Green Bay made a roster move this week — adding T Jared Veldheer from the Indianapolis Colts’ practice squad. Packer G Simon Stepaniak was added to injured reserve to make room. Veldheer briefly played with the Packers last season for a couple regular season games and a couple post season games, including the 2019 NFC Divisional Playoff against the Seattle Seahawks. He even started last week for the Colts in their Wild Card matchup loss against the Buffalo Bills. Once all is said and done, he will have played for two different teams in the same playoffs. A true journeyman.
The game is scheduled for a 3:35 CT kickoff and will be televised on Fox.
