The oddsmakers made the betting line San Francisco -3 for this game. It hasn’t moved since it opened.
The people making the odds are seeing these two teams as even, but the three points on the Niners is because they are the home squad. 53% of the betting public is taking Green Bay with the points.
The Green Bay Packers’ Edge Vs. San Francisco
San Francisco is one of the most complete teams in the NFL, but if there is one position where the Green Bay Packers have a clear edge is at quarterback. Aaron Rodgers is a beast, but not only that, there are plenty of doubts about Jimmy Garoppolo in big games.
Rodgers Is Good Enough To Carry Packers Offense
We know what we get with Rodgers. He’s not only one of the best QBs in the league, but he doesn’t make mistakes. So far this season, he has thrown only two interceptions. Compare to Jimmy’s 10, Rodgers is a better option by a thousand miles.
What helps Rodgers against the Niners’ aggressive pass rush is both his mobility and the Packers’ rushing attack. Cardinals’ QB Kyler Murray was very elusive against San Francisco. Despite Aaron not being that fast, we know he has amazing scrambling abilities.
Green Bay’s running game has had good outings on the road. The team ran for 120 yards in their win in Dallas and 118 rushing yards in their victory in Kansas City. A good running game will keep the Niners pass rush in check.
The San Francisco 49ers’ Edge Vs. The Packers
The last time we saw the San Francisco 49ers on Primetime, they lost a thriller at home against Seattle. They had a chance to win that game in overtime but failed after their rookie kicker missed the winning field goal.
Many believe San Francisco was exposed that night, and they don’t belong in the contenders’ conversation despite their 9-1 record. That’s a little harsh, but the overreaction about that result was loud.
49ers Powerful Defense May Make The Difference
The 49ers have the second-best defense in the NFL, only behind the New England Patriots. They lead the league in sacks, and make no mistake about it, they will go after Aaron Rodgers all night long.
But the Niners also have a favorable matchup on the other side of the ball. The Packers have the fifth-worst defense in the NFL, and despite starting the season as one of the best, over the last few weeks, it has been exposed.
Offense May Get Key Players Back
San Francisco is expecting to have two key players back for this one. TE George Kittle (ankle) and WR Emmanuel Sanders (ribs) will be game-time decisions for Sunday Night. Out of the two, Kittle has a better chance to suit up to face the Packers.
Green Bay Packers Vs. San Francisco 49ers Week 12 Prediction
This Green Bay Packers team has overachieved this season. They are 8-2, but the talent on both sides of the ball is not evident. Rodgers has done an excellent job of managing the talent around him, but against good teams, that will be a lot harder to do.
I worry about the protection that he is going to get and how much time he will have in the pocket to find the receivers down the field. Just three weeks ago, Melvin Ingram and Joey Bosa destroyed the Packers offensive line. I can argue Nick Bosa is playing better than those two and will have a field day against Green Bay,
On the other side, I’m not a believer in Jimmy Garoppolo, but he does have a favorable matchup against a weak defense. The Packers’ D started the season as one of the best in the business, and slowly, they have shown us that it was not their real identity.
It should be a great game, but I don’t see how the Packers win this one. San Francisco is a better team overall. Green Bay will lose both critical battles in the trenches. Bet Niners -3.
