Week 9 of the 2020 NFL season starts with Thursday Night Football showdown between the Green Bay Packers and San Francisco 49ers at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California.

These two NFC foes take on each other for the third straight year. Last season, they met twice, including the Niners’ victory over the Packers in the NFC championship game. 

Hereof, the visitors will seek revenge Thursday night in California, so I bring you the best Packers vs. 49ers betting pick along with the latest odds update.

Packers vs. 49ers Odds

Packers -2.5-125
49ers +2.5+105
Packers to Win-145
49ers to Win+125
Over 51.0-110
Under 51.0-110

The Packers lost both last season’s duels with the 49ers, but they opened as slight favorites in this one. San Francisco has a lot of injury problems, but Green Bay will miss a few important players, too.

Some guys are listed as questionable including the Niners QB Jimmy Garoppolo, so keep tracking the odds on some of the best online sportsbooks, as we could see some slight changes in the next few days.

Green Bay Packers Analysis

The Packers are coming off a painful 28-22 home loss to the Minnesota Vikings this past Sunday. They were listed as firm 6.5-point favorites, but the Packers’ defense was destroyed by Dalvin Cook who ran for 163 yards and three touchdowns while adding two receptions for one score.

The game was tied at halftime, and the Packers collapsed in the third quarter. Aaron Rodgers finished 27-from-41 for 291 yards and three touchdowns, while Jamaal Williams had 16 carries for 75 yards. The Packers missed Aaron Jones for the second straight game, and the 25-year-old RB should be ready for Week 9 TNF.

Green Bay is now 5-2 straight up, still topping the NFC North ahead of the 5-3 Chicago Bears. The Packers are scoring 31.3 points per game (4th in the NFL) while allowing 26.7 in a return (20th).

San Francisco 49ers Analysis

The 49ers snapped a two-game win streak last Sunday, losing at the Seattle Seahawks 37-27. It was a disappointing performance by the reigning vice-champs who trailed 27-7 at the start of the fourth quarter.

Jimmy Garoppolo and TE George Kittle both exited Sunday’s clash due to injuries. Garoppolo tossed for only 84 yards and one interception before being replaced by Nick Mullens, while Kittle had just two catches for 39 yards.

The Niners dropped to 4-4 on the season and are sitting bottom of the NFC West. They are tallying 26.0 points per contest (15th) while yielding 21.6 points in a return (10th). Before Week 8 loss at Seattle, the Niners’ D had a couple of good displays in a 24-16 win over the Rams and a 33-6 victory at the Patriots.

Packers vs. 49ers Betting Pick

The 49ers have dominated the Packers over the last nine years. During that span, San Francisco went 6-2 SU and 6-1-1 ATS in its eight encounters with Green Bay.

However, I don’t expect that trend to continue, looking for the Packers to bounce back from a surprising loss in Week 8.

The Niners have struggled mightily against the teams with a solid passing offense, so I expect Aaron Rodgers and the Packers’ receiving corps to dominate this clash.

Furthermore, the Niners already miss their starting RB and first-choice wideout, so Garoppolo and Kittle’s eventual absence would be a massive blow for their struggling offense.

San Francisco is just 1-3 SU and ATS in its four outings at home this term. Green Bay is 3-1 SU and ATS in its previous four road contests in 2020.

Pick
  • Green Bay Packers -2.5
    -125
