Point Spread: 3.50 | -110.00 Green Bay (Away)
I like the Green Bay Packers to cover the spread and upset the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday night. The Packers looked very good against the Lions on Monday night. Their offense was running well throughout that entire game and their defense finally kicked in and started really shutting the Lions down when they needed to in the 2nd half. Aaron Rodgers showed everyone in that game that week 1 was "just 1 game" and that there is still plenty of season left for them to hit their full stride. They scored 35 points while the defense held the Lions to 17, allowing no points in the 2nd half of that game. The 49ers have looked good in their first 2 games as well but have been a little wishy washy. In their first game their offense looked great putting up 41 points on the Lions but their defense allowed them to come back in that game letting the Lions score 33 points. Then last week, the 49ers defense played great as they held the Eagles to 11 points but their offense only managed to put up 17 points themselves. Aaron Rodgers looks like he's ready for the season now and he has a lot of weapons to work with on that offense in both the running game and the passing game. They will be looking to be the best in the NFC this season and that starts here with taking down one of the undefeated teams. I like the Packers to cover the spread here and win the game in an upset.
T.M. Prediction: 30-23 Packers.
