Or, will they perform well enough to dominate an overmatched San Francisco team on the road? For San Francisco, just staying close to a team like Green Bay will build their confidence.

Why Bet On Green Bay (-8) to Beat San Francisco
Aaron Rodgers for President!
Green Bay has the best offense in the NFL. Although it’s not ranked first in any specific offensive category, it is ranked in the Top 10 in every category except for passing yards per game.
Surprised? You shouldn’t be. QB Aaron Rodgers is very good at exploiting defenses with his arm, but he’s also excellent at changing the call at the line of scrimmage in order to exploit teams that are soft against the run. Rodgers has a ton of weapons at his disposal including terrific wide receiver Randall Cobb, who can play in the slot or out wide. Cobb is almost impossible to guard.

Green Bay might just be too good offensively for San Francisco in this game. If the onslaught that is the Packers’ offense gets it going early, this one could be over before halftime.
Why Bet On San Francisco to Beat Green Bay (-8)
The 49ers have allowed 40-plus points in back-to-back games for the first time since 2006.
San Francisco might be able to counter Green Bay’s offensive power with a terrific rushing attack. The 49’ers’ best chance of upsetting powerful Green Bay is to get their running game going. That will keep Rogers off of the field.
San Francisco played one of the top rush defenses in the NFL when they took on the Arizona Cardinals in Glendale, AZ in Week 3. Without a viable rushing attack, San Francisco fell apart. Arizona blitzed the Niners 47 to 7. Don’t expect the same score this Sunday. Although Green Bay has an offense that can put up points, the Green Bay defense allows 127.7 rushing yards per game.

The Packers aren’t very good at stopping the rush. That will no doubt aid San Francisco in their quest to upset the Packers on Sunday. This game is going to be much closer than people realize. If the Niners can run the football, they’ll have a shot to upset the Packers at home. In fact, the matchup is in San Francisco’s favor since the 49’ers average 148 rushing yards per game. My final score prediction is San Francisco 28, Green Bay 27.
