Jordan Love was simply dominant in his playoff debut last week, throwing three touchdowns and posting a 157.2 passer rating as the Packers (9-8) went into Dallas and routed the Cowboys 48-32 in the Wild Card round. Love’s top target was wideout Romeo Dobbs who took the Cowboys for six catches, 151 yards and a touchdown.

The Packers will likely need another near-perfect performance if they are going to hang with the NFC's top-seeded 49ers.

San Francisco (12-4) has the biggest advantage in this game as the league’s best running back faces a bottom-tier run defense. All-Pro Christian McCaffrey led the NFL with 1,458 rushing yards and also had 21 total touchdowns on the season. He’ll be facing a Packers run defense that allowed the seventh most rushing yards per game this year (139.5).

Another matchup in the Niners’ favor is tight end George Kittle taking on a struggling Packers' pass defense, especially against the tight end position. Kittle just put up his second All-Pro season reeling in 65 passes for 1,020 yards and six touchdowns. Now he faces a Green Bay defense that allowed a 105 passer rating to quarterbacks targeting tight ends.  

DraftKings has the 49ers as 10.5-favorites against the Packers. The over-under is 50.5.
