The San Francisco 49ers need a victory here to get back to a .500 record and snap a two-game skid. Colin Kaepernick is completing 64.8 percent of his passes for 567 yards, two touchdowns and four interceptions. Kaepernick is coming off a four-interception game against the Cardinals. Torrey Smith and Anquan Boldin have combined for 243 receiving yards and two touchdowns while Garrett Celek has eight receptions. The San Francisco 49ers ground game is averaging 148 yards per contest, and Carlos Hyde leads the way with 262 yards and two touchdowns. Defensively, San Fran is allowing 31 points and 382.3 yards per game. NaVorro Bowman leads the 49ers with 20 tackles, Tramaine Brock has two pass deflections and Aaron Lynch has two tackles for loss. Bruce Ellington, Reggie Bush and Vernon Davis are questionable.
The Packers are 3-8 ATS vs. a team with a losing record and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The 49ers are 13-3 ATS in their last 16 games in October and 1-7-1 ATS in their last 9 games overall. The Packers are 5-2-1 ATS in their last 8 meetings in San Francisco and 10-4-2 ATS in their last 16 meetings overall.
I don't like the fact the Packers are traveling out west on short rest after playing Monday night. Also, the 49ers have beaten the Packers outright in the last four meetings, all of which took place since 2012. The 49ers will also be eager for a bounce back performance after getting beat up by Arizona.
Sure, Green Bay still probably wins this game, but I can't turn down this many points and the home team.
