PACKERS vs 49ERS: October 15, 2018
Pick: UNDER 46.5 POINTS -110
The San Francisco 49ers will be at Lambeau Field Monday night to take on Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers. Both teams have not had ideal seasons and come into this game dealing with a ton of injury problems. As of last Thursday the 49ers had 8 offensive players sitting out of practice with injuries. They should struggle to move the ball against a Packers defense that has already put some good defensive performances at home this season only allowing 52 total points in 3 games at home while putting together a 2-0-1 record in this game. The 49ers know with all their injuries the only way they have a chance at winning this game is by keeping Aaron Rodgers off the field. They will keep the ball on the ground and look to kill lots of clock on every drive. They have a good enough running game to do this especially if starting running back Matt Breida plays. The Packers will be reliant on the health and ability of Aaron Rodgers who is dealing with a ton of injuries according to head coach Mike McCarthy. The Packers have given up a ton of sacks and this could play a factor into his effectiveness tonight if he is getting hit a lot. The Packers are only averaging 23 points per game this season which is well below the numbers they are used to putting up in previous years. I think points will be very hard to come by in this game. The under is the right play here.
