San Francisco 49ers vs. Green Bay Packers Betting Odds And Line Movement
San Francisco goes up against Green Bay for the second time this season. The Packers outlasted the 49ers 30-28 as 3-point road underdogs in Week 3, marking their fourth win in the past six matchups with San Francisco. For Saturday’s game, Green Bay is a 6-point home favorite, with the over/under set at 47.0 points at the best San Francisco betting sites.
Notes On The San Francisco 49ers
The San Francisco 49ers (11-7 12-8 ATS) are coming off a 23-17 road triumph over the Dallas Cowboys in the NFC Wild Card round. The Niners dominated the Cowboys all game long, but they nearly blew a 16-point lead in a chaotic conclusion while playing as 3.5 road underdogs.
The defense was incredibly stout, but the offense didn’t give much help. Brandon Aiyuk had five receptions for 66 yards, with Elijah Mitchell and Deebo Samuel combining for 168 rushing yards and a pair of touchdowns on 37 carries.
Samuel has been fantastic in recent weeks, scoring a touchdown in four of his previous five games. The 49ers ended the season on a high note, going 5-1 straight up and against the spread in their past six games overall.
The 49ers have some injury worries going into the divisional round. Defensive end Nick Bosa is in the concussion protocol, and his eventual absence would be a massive blow for the 49ers’ defense. DL Jordan Willis (ankle) is questionable to play as well.
Notes On The Green Bay Packers
The Green Bay Packers (13-4, 12-5 ATS) had two weeks off following their second straight division title. In Week 18, the team rested many of its key players and were surprise by a 37-30 defeat at the Detroit Lions to stop their five-game winning streak.
In 2021, Aaron Rodgers completed the season with 4,115 yards, 37 touchdowns, and four interceptions. It was yet another great showing by MVP Aaron Rodgers, who had 123 receptions for 1,553 yards and 11 touchdowns.
The Packers’ offense has been unstoppable all season, thanks in large part to Aaron Rodgers and Ty Montgomery. Adams had 12 receptions for 132 yards and a touchdown in that narrow victory over the 49ers, while Rodgers threw for 261 yards and two touchdowns.
On Wednesday, WR Ryan Switzer (groin) and LB Riley Bullough were ruled out for Week 8. The status of TE Marcedes Lewis (hamstring) is also in question for Saturday’s game. David Bakhtiari (knee), Randall Cobb (core muscle) and LB Riley Bullough (knee) are all questionable.
Pick And Prediction: San Francisco 49ers +6.0
The previous game between the 49ers and Packers was a crazy one. On the road, Green Bay blew a 17-point lead but nevertheless managed to come away with a victory thanks to Mason Crosby’s 51-yard field goal as time expired.
I think the Packers will win against the 49ers. They are playing against a team that has been doing well in the second half of this season. If Nick Bosa comes out for the game, San Francisco’s defensive line will trouble the Packers’ offensive line, as the 49ers enjoy to be rough. It appears that Jimmy Garoppolo may be the weakest link in this San Francisco team.
On the other side, Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams will continue to dominate their opposition. The Packers, nevertheless, will need a strong defensive effort if they want to win comfortably against the 49ers.
The over has gone 6-1 in Green Bay’s previous seven games, while the under is 5-1 in San Francisco’s past six. When it comes to their head-to-head confrontations, the total has gone over in four of the last five games, and I would advocate betting on that.
The Niners will need to work hard to keep the Packers from scoring more than 28 points. The Packers have scored 30 points in six of its last seven games, so the 49ers will need to run the ball a lot.
