In one of the most attractive week one matchups, the Green Bay Packers will host the San Francisco 49ers in Lambeau Field this Sunday September 9th 2012 at 4:15 PM ET.
Odds makers at BetOnline Sportsbook have posted the Packers as 6.5 point favorites with a total of 45 for this game.
There is no question that this game will match the most productive offense in 2011 in terms of touchdowns scored (Green Bay, 51) against one of the most solid defensive units. The 49ers greatest achievement definitely has to be finishing on top of the league in rushing defense, allowing just 77.2 rushing yards per game and just 3 touchdowns in the 2011 regular season.
Despite playing great offense, the Packers own the worst defense in the league in 2011 which allowed over 400 yards per game. With the additions of players such as Mario Manningham and Randy Moss, San Francisco provided Alex Smith with more weapons and there should be a clear improvement for an offense that ranked 26th overall on 2011.
The 49ers are a team built to beat teams with explosive offenses. Their bully-style of defense plus an efficient offense that doesn´t turn the ball over is a winning formula in the NFL. This is an upset waiting to happen, and we will be laying our money on the 49ers to beat Green Bay on week 1. Bet the 49ers at BetOnline!
