The Green Bay Packers have already clinched first place in the NFC North. The Minnesota Vikings are scrambling just to make the playoffs. They’ll meet this Sunday night at Lambeau Field, beginning at 8:20 PM ET on NBC. The Packers are laying the full seven points at press time after opening at –6.5, and the total has jumped from 46.5 to 48.5.

As you might expect from a January night game at Lambeau, the tundra will indeed be frozen – temperatures of around 10 degrees are expected at kick-off. The long-range forecast also calls for crosswinds of up to 15 mph blowing towards the southeast corner of the stadium. However, the snowy weekend should ease off Saturday night, with skies clearing throughout the game as temperatures drop.
The Packers (12-3 SU, 11-4 ATS) are the NFC’s No. 1 seed heading into Week 17, which is no longer the last week of the regular season, so they still have some motivation for Sunday’s contest beyond the divisional rivalry. The Vikings (7-8 SU, 8-7 ATS) are one of multiple teams fighting over the last Wild Card spot in the NFC, with the 8-7 San Francisco 49ers and Philadelphia Eagles ahead of them.
