About the Atlanta Falcons (12-5 record 11-6 against the spread): Laser accurate 6’4″ 220 Lb. signal-caller Matt Ryan (117.1 passer rating) leads one of the most prolific offenses in NFL history. The Falcons are especially dangerous on their home turf where the ‘Birds lighting fast position players can burn. The ground attack featuring elusive 5’8″ 210 Lb. Devonta Freeman (4.41 40-speed 1541 total yards 14 TD) and flyer Tevin Coleman (Fastest speed rating in 2016 season 22.5 MPH) is scary. The offensive line has played among the top-10 units in the NFL with 6’4″ 311″ All-Pro center Alex Mack (450 Lb. bench-press) the leader of the big boys. The wideout corps is flat out lethal with 6’3″ 220 Lb. All-Pro Julio Jones (4.39 40-speed 345 Lb. bench-press 38.5″vertical leap) a mismatch against any defender in one on one coverage. Jones has been slowed by turf toe but will still be a threat even at 85-90%. The young defense struggled ranking 27th in scoring 27th in yards per rush and 28th in pass yards. The defense has settled into a groove in recent weeks with the emergence of young stars in 6’3″ 246 Lb. defensive end Vic Beasley (15.5 sacks 470 Lb. bench-press! 4.40 40-speed), linebacker Deion Jones (4.38 40-speed!) and safety Keanu Neal (350 bench-press). Special teams were a top-10 unit with excellent kicking and punting along with ageless kick returner Devin Hester (4.40 40-speed). Packers vs Falcons NFC Championship Odds have Green Bay as a +195 moneyline underdog at BOVADA.LV

About the Green Bay Packers (12-6 11-6-1 against the spread): Rifle-armed  6’1″ 225 Lb. QB Aaron Rodgers (55 MPH Pass-Speed = 95 MPH Fastball) leads the ‘Cheeseheads high octane 4th ranked offense. The offense should receive a boost with purple-hearted star wideout Jordy Nelson (97 receptions 1257 yards 14 TD) expected to play after missing the divisional game with broken ribs. Rodgers has nice complementary targets in 6’1″ 215 Lb. Davante Adams (4.41 40-speed 39.5″ vertical leap!) and sure-handed Randall Cobb (4.46 40-speed). Shifty converted wideout Ty Montgomery (5.9 yards per carry 1171 total yards) is a true weapon as a running back and is coming off a 2 TD performance against Dallas. The offensive line is smart and physical ranking among the league’s top-5 units. The 21st ranked scoring defense (8th sacks 15th yards per rush) is led by defensive wizard Dom Capers. The young ‘Cheeseheads defense features a star studded linebacking corps led by 6’3″ 255 Lb. All-Pro Clay Matthews (4.67 40-speed 385 Lb. bench-press) and 6’3″ 265 Lb. Nick Perry (11.0 sacks 470 Lb. bench-press! 4.45 40-speed). The secondary is banged up but has a difference maker in 6’1″ 218 Lb. thumper Ha Ha Clinton Dix (4.50 40-speed). Special teams were ordinary but kicker Mason Crosby is an All-Pro. 2017 Packers vs Falcons NFC Championship Odds have Green Bay at +5.5 with 64% of picks on Green Bay spread at BOVADA.LV
