Green Bay Packers -7.5
The Packers are coming off a defeat to the Minnesota Vikings, but they should rebound with a comfortable win over a 49ers team that has been ravaged by injuries.
San Francisco are missing several key offensive starters, including their top two receivers, three running backs, quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo and star tight end George Kittle, so it’s hard to see them keeping up with Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay offense.
Aaron Rodgers over 292.5 receiving yards
Green Bay are also missing some important offensive players, with star running back Aaron Jones questionable with a calf injury and backups Jamaal Williams and AJ Dillon on the reserve/COVID-19 list.
With their top three running backs out, the Packers will rely heavily upon Rodgers’ arm, so he should surpass the 291 passing yards he recorded last week.
Jerick McKinnon over 19.5 receiving yards
With so many 49ers missing, McKinnon looks set to be a huge part of San Francisco’s offense against a Green Bay defence that has found it impossible to stop opposing running backs all year.
The Packers have allowed more receiving yards to running backs than any other team in the league, so McKinnon should comfortably pass this mark after gaining 40 yards through the air last week.
JaMycal Hasty to score a touchdown
Hasty will receive most of the rushing work for the 49ers on Thursday night and looks a good bet to score after finding the end zone for the first time last week.
The Packers have allowed 10 rushing touchdowns and four receiving touchdowns to opposing running backs this season, both of which are the highest marks in the NFL.
