The Line: Green Bay Packers -9.5 -- Over/Under: 46.5
The San Francisco 49ers and Green Bay Packers meet Monday in NFL action at Lambeau Field.
The San Francisco 49ers look for their first road win of the season to snap a three-game losing streak and climb out of a 1-4 hole. The San Francisco 49ers have lost eight of their last 11 road games. C.J. Beathard is completing 62.6 percent of his passes for 647 yards, four touchdowns and four interceptions. Beathard has at least one touchdown pass in five of his nine career games in which he has a pass attempt. George Kittle and Kyle Juszczyk have combined for 506 receiving yards and two touchdowns while Pierre Garcon has 16 receptions. The San Francisco 49ers ground game is averaging 136.2 yards per contest, and Matt Breida leads the way with 369 yards and one touchdown. Defensively, San Francisco is allowing 29.2 points and 348.4 yards per game. Fred Warner leads the San Francisco 49ers with 46 tackles, DeForest Buckner has 3.5 sacks and Antone Exum Jr. has one interception.
The Green Bay Packers look to remain unbeaten at home to build on their shaky 2-2-1 record. The Green Bay Packers are 3-4-1 SU in their last eight home games. Aaron Rodgers is completing 63 percent of his passes for 1,572 yards, 10 touchdowns and one interception. Rodgers has two or more touchdown passes in eight of his last 11 games. Davante Adams and Geronimo Allison have combined for 714 receiving yards and six touchdowns while Jimmy Graham has 22 receptions. The Green Bay Packers ground game is averaging 101.2 yards per contest, and Jamaal Williams leads the way with 195 yards on 53 carries. Defensively, Green Bay is allowing 22.8 points and 313.8 yards per game. Blake Martinez leads the Green Bay Packers with 39 tackles, Nick Perry has 1.5 sacks and Ha Ha Clinton-Dix has three interceptions.
The 49ers are 25-6 ATS in their last 31 Monday games, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games in Week 6 and 2-8 ATS in their last 10 games in October. The Packers are 4-1 ATS vs. a team with a losing record, 12-5-1 ATS in their last 18 games in October and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The 49ers are 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 meetings in Green Bay, 4-11-2 ATS in their last 17 meetings and the over is 6-2 in the last 8 meetings.
The San Francisco 49ers laid an egg last week against the worst offensive team in the league in the Arizona Cardinals, but the good news is their four losses have come by an average of 7.75 points. The Green Bay Packers are a banged up football team, as the few weapons Rodgers has on the outside are dealing with injuries, and Rodgers said after last weeks game that his knee is actually more sore now than it was in past weeks. It's not a good sitation right now for the Packers. The San Francisco 49ers are 6-10-1 ATS in their last 17 games when an underdog of at least seven points. The Green Bay Packers are 4-6-1 ATS in their last 11 games when favored by at least seven points. If forced to pick a side, I'd go with the 49ers and the points based on how this team competes and the fact the Packers can't stay healthy. However, I'm going with the over for my pick. The over has hit in six of the 49ers last seven games and 21 of the Packers last 27 games. Ten of the Packers last 14 games have produced at least 46 points. Each of the 49ers last four games have produced at least 46 points. This is a low total. Give me the over.
