San Francisco at Green Bay Game Overview
Expectations were running high during the preseason in San Francisco, but that has quickly deteriorated into a 1-4 start both straight-up and against the spread. Things may have hit rock bottom last Sunday in a 28-18 loss to previously winless Arizona as a three-point home favorite. The lone win of the year came against Detroit in Week 2 with a 30-27 victory as a six-point favorite at home.
The loss of quarterback Jimmie Garoppolo is at the top of the list when it comes to the issues facing the 49ers. Injuries have also impacted the offensive line, and the ground game with Jerick McKinnon also lost for the season. The offense is still averaging a respectable 23.6 points per game, but it is having trouble keeping pace with a defense that is 29th in the league in points allowed (29.2).
Green Bay opened the season as the clear favorite to win the NFC North this season behind a healthy Aaron Rodgers under center. An early knee injury has not kept him out of the starting lineup, but it has to be a contributing factor in the Packers' shaky 2-2-1 SU start while going 2-3 ATS. They are coming off a 31-23 loss to Detroit last Sunday as slight one-point road underdogs. The total went OVER 50 points in that game, and it has gone OVER in four of their first five games.
Rodgers has been limited in mobility with the lingering knee injury, but he has still thrown for 1,572 yards and 10 touchdowns in five games. The main issue with this offense is consistency from one game to the next. The overall numbers look pretty good with over 400 total yards per game and an average of 23 points on the scoreboard, but the overall team record says otherwise.
