Green Bay Packers vs. San Francisco 49ers looks to be one of the biggest match-ups of the NFL’s week one schedule. The Packers are favored by 5 points by the odds makers in this match which seems accurate to me. Where the predictions seem a bit soft is on the over and under. Vegas odds have the total points at 46.5.
I am expecting a pass happy game from both Aaron Rodgers and Alex Smith. San Francisco 49ers on paper have one of the most lethal offences in the NFL. With stud running back Frank Gore, TE Vernon Davis in addition to Micheal Crabtree, Mario Manningham, Ted Ginn Jr. and Randy Moss at the wide receiver position this team is stacked.
Green Bay’s Quarterback Aaron Rodgers owns the NFL’s all-time career leader inpasser rating and the league’s lowest career pass interception percentage. Head coach Mike McCarthy knows the key to Green Bay’s success is keeping the ball in Aaron Rodgers’ hands. In my option the smart money would be on teasing Green Bay and the over.
