Packers Favorites vs. 49ers for Monday Night Football Bets

NFC Championship Game Odds and Picks Green Bay Packers vs. Atlanta Falcons

The Green Bay Packers are 9-point favorites against the San Francisco 49ers, according to the Las Vegas sports betting online spread. Both teams had apparent Week 5 victories slip through their collective fingers as a result of turnovers. The Niners had 23 more first downs than the Arizona Cardinals but lost 18-28 on account of five TOs. Similarly, the Packers outgained the Detroit Lions by 257 yards but lost 23-31 as a consequence of three TOs. “Sometimes that ball bounces your way and sometimes it doesn’t. But you have to create more opportunities,” Green Bay head coach Mike McCarthy said. “We’ve created too many giveaway opportunities and we clearly don’t have enough takeaway opportunities.”

Meanwhile, San Fran head coach Kyle ‘Sha Na Na’ Shanahan opined that “we’ve been close to winning. It’s not an excuse. We definitely should have won more games than we have,” 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan said. “We’ve got to find ways to not turn it over and get the ball in the end zone.”

Betting 49ers

The defense will attempt to keep points off the board against a wobbly Aaron Rodgers. And running back Alfred Morris will attempt to put points on the board. The Niners might be without wide receivers Pierre Garcon and Marquise Goodwin. If that’s the case, San Francisco would in theory rely on the ground attack. And feed the rock to Morris. Because there pretty much isn’t anybody else.

If kicker Mason Crosby still has a job on Monday, he could help the Niners cover the Las Vegas sports betting online spread. Crosby missed five kicks against the Lions.

In addition to turnovers, both teams are struggling with injuries, especially at quarterback. Rodgers is pretty much held together with duct tape and safety pins. But at least he can still limp onto the gridiron. Which is a lot more than the Niners can say about Jimmy G. Advantage Green Bay. Still, San Fran’s defense should be able to keep a one-legged Rodgers from scoring too many points. So let’s say Packers win straight-up, but 49ers cover the Las Vegas sports betting online spread. Customers of the best online sportsbooks should also keep an eye on the total. Which seems relatively low for two teams who have gone over the total in four of their last five games.
