After opening at 51 points, the over/under for the NFC Championship game between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Green Bay Packers has been bet down to 50.5, per BettingPros consensus odds.

Betting Impact:

Whenever a total drops this early in the week, one should automatically wonder if the weather forecast has anything to do with the line drop, as some bettors like to get a jump on the oddsmakers if they feel the weather will have an impact on how the game is played out. There is no surprise in the forecast in Green Bay for Sunday, as it will be a high on 29 degrees in the afternoon. There is a 45% chance of snow showers predicted, but there is no accumulation likely. Thus, this line movement could be that respected money has come in on the under, which is surprising considering both teams have been slightly more profitable to the over this year.
