The San Francisco 49ers will host the Green Bay Packers at Levi’s Stadium in the 2020 NFC Championship Game next Sunday. The game kicks off at 6:40 p.m. ET on FOX. DraftKings Sportsbook has installed the 49ers as a touchdown favorite and the point total sits at 45 in a matchup of the top two seeds in the NFC. The 49ers are -315 on the money line, while the Packers are +245.

The 49ers advanced to the NFC title game with a Divisional round win over the Vikings. The game was tied after one quarter and a four-point game at the half, but the 49ers dominated the game for the most part. They led handily in first downs and it was a fumble and an interception that kept this game closer than it should have been.

The Packers advanced with a win over the Seahawks in the Divisional round. Green Bay jumped on top 21-3 and looked ready to roll over Seattle, but Russell Wilson and company did their second half thing. They cut the lead to 28-23, but couldn’t convert subsequent opportunities and came up short.

San Francisco hosted Green Bay in Week 12 and absolutely obliterated them 37-8. Rodgers threw for only 104 yards and one touchdown. Jimmy Garoppolo threw for 253 yards and two touchdowns, and the ground game averaged 5.1 yards per carry and scored two touchdowns.
