The San Francisco 49ers welcome the Green Bay Packers into town after a win in this last game, defeating the Arizona Cardinals by the score of 36-26. In order to get the win, the 49ers had to battle back late in the game, outscoring the Cardinals 19-7 in the 4th quarter. Jimmy Garoppolo completed 34 of 45 passes while throwing for 4 touchdowns against 2 interceptions. Tevin Coleman led the way for San Francisco on the ground but was never really able to get started as he rushed 12 times for just 14 yards.

Tight end George Kittle has been the 49ers lead receiver on the season as he has caught 46 passes for 541 yards and 2 touchdowns.

Green Bay has allowed 25 points per game this season while allowing 20.5 points per game. The 49ers have scored 29.5 points per game and allowed 15.5 points per game. Green Bay averages 373.9 yards per game while allowing 402.5. San Francisco gains an average of 398.4 yards per game while allowing 284. Both teams are 4-1 in their last 5 games. I am going to go with the 49ers in this one, the 49ers offense has played slightly better than Packers’, but the defense of the 49ers is stronger than what the Packers can match. San Francisco wins this one 28-24 and covers the spread.
