The Green Bay Packers are a good bet to win the Super Bowl this season for several reasons. Be it their future Hall-of-Fame QB Aaron Rodgers, a smart young coach in Matt LaFleur, or a strong core of talent, there is little question as to why the Packers are favored to win it all at WynnBET Sportsbook.

One factor which doesn’t get talked about as much is a bit more intangible. The weather.

See, the Packers are notorious for not only winning at home but winning in icy conditions during the end of the season and playoffs.

Right of the bat, the Packers are 13-0 straight up (SU) in the regular season in December and January under coach LaFleur.

The most recent example of this trend occurred in Week 17 against the Minnesota Vikings.

With the thermostat flirting with single digits and a wind chill of zero at kickoff, it’s safe to say it was a chilly day in Green Bay. The Packers won decisively 37-10 in another “business as usual” victory at an icy Lambeau Field.

It seems that the Packers just are not as affected by frigid temperatures as other teams are. Especially those from warm climate cities such as Tampa Bay and San Francisco. 

One would assume that this cold-weather dominance would extend into the playoffs and you would be wrong. Mostly. 

Since 2009, when Aaron Rodgers starts in games with freezing temperatures, the Green Bay Packers are 4-3 SU in seven games.

So, it’s a winning record, but it’s no 13-0. Moving into the betting market, however, things take a turn south. The Packers are 3-3-1 ATS in those same seven games. Not too bad right? Well, we’re just getting started.

The Packers are also 1-2 ATS when the line is six or more. Coincidentally, the Packers are -6 at WynnBET in the divisional round against the San Fransisco 49ers. Additionally, the Packers are 1-2 ATS in the divisional round in a temperatures of 32 degrees or under.

Other relevant betting stats for these games is that the OVER is 4-3 with a three-game win streak and that the Packers have scored at least 20 points in all seven qualified games. 

So, why bring this up? Well, it’s going to be pretty damn cold on Saturday afternoon. Or as the local weather calls it “seasonably cold.” Which is a hilarious euphemism for 12 freaking degrees Fahrenheit with a wind chill of around two.
