Green Bay vs San Francisco Pick – Offenses
Green Bay is averaging 31.3 PPG. The 49ers are putting up 26.0 PPG. Both team’s totals and breakdowns on offensive yardage are similar. The Packers and Niners are both rushing for close to 130 YPG and passing for about 270 YPG.
QB Aaron Rodgers has performed well this season, tossing 20 TD strikes and just two picks. Rodgers, who’s been sacked eight times, is completing 65.8% of his passes. His two favorite targets are WR Davante Adams and TE Robert Tonyan. They have 43 and 23 receptions respectively. Adams has caught seven touchdown passes and Tonyan has five. RB Aaron Jones, who’s listed as questionable, may be back on the field tonight. In five games, he’s made 57 carries for 389 yards and scored five TDs.
We expect three-year man Nick Mullens to get the call at quarterback. Last week against Seattle, Mullens threw 25 passes and completed 18 (72%). He tossed two TD passes and did not give up a pick. Another issue for this team is the receiving corps, which, along with Kittle, has lost Brandon Aiyuk and Deebo Samuel. Both were placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list. WR Kendrick Bourne, who has 25 catches for 352 yards and one score, will play. Also out are two of the teams top-three rushers, Jeff Wilson and Raheem Mostert. Jerick McKinnon, who has four TD runs and 209 yards on 47 carries, is ready to go.
Packers vs 49ers Spread Pick – Defenses
Our Green Bay vs San Francisco pick notes that the 49ers’ defense is a tad better than the Packers’. Green Bay is allowing opponents 26.7 PPG, while the Niners are giving up just 21.6.

Those include LB Fred Warner (61 TKLs, 3 PD, 2 INTs), corner Emmanuel Moseley (36 TKLs, 7 PD, 1 INT) and DE Kerry Hyder Jr. (25 TKLs, 4.5 SKs, 6 TFL).
The Packers are missing four players from their secondary, including safeties Raven Greene and Will Redmond and corner Kevin King.
