Packers vs. 49ers odds, 2013 NFL playoffs: Lines holding steady

Jeff Hanisch-US PRESSWIRE

It looks like Vegas got this one just right.

The San Francisco 49ers opened as three-point favorites over the Green Bay Packers, which sounds about right. San Francisco won their regular season meeting by one score, they're at home, they finished the season with the better record, and the Packers didn't get a chance to impress anyone last week because of the Vikings' QB situation. I'm confident that the Packers can win the game in convincing fashion, but I think the Niners deserved to open as favorites.

Based on the bookies that OddShark keeps track of, it looks like Vegas got that opening line just right if they're trying to get the money even on both sides. At two of the bookmakers, the line has moved in the Packers' favor, and the Niners are now favored by just two-and-a-half points. At four of them, the line is holding steady at three.

I'm going to assume that most of the people on this board think that the Packers are going to win on Saturday, but I'm wondering what everyone thinks of the line. Is it fair to make the Niners three-point favorites? Does that seem reasonable?
