Betting on the San Francisco 49ers:
Fresh off a runner-up finish in the Super Bowl, the San Francisco 49ers schedule has them bracing for a juggernaut of a game against Green Bay in Week 1.
Countering the Packers’ underdog trend, the 49ers are just as good when tabbed as favorites. In its last five games as favorites, San Francisco is 4-1 SU.
The 49ers own a very impressive rushing game that could pose serious problems for the Packers. Last season, San Francisco was ranked fourth in rushing yards (155.7). It could puncture the ground defense of Green Bay, ranked just 17th last season(118.5 allowed per game).
Moving on to the totals, the 49ers have shown a steady trend of going Over. They are 6-0 Over in their last six home games. Maybe even more telling is their 10-1 Over record in their last 11 games. Bet now on San Francisco 49ers.
