We got the division-leading [5-2] Green Bay Packers traveling to Northern California to take on the [4-4] San Francisco 49ers in this PRIME-TIME Thursday Night Football matchup. The Packers are entering this showdown 3-1 on the road, while the Niners are looking at the inverse being 1-3 while playing at home. This matchup will be intriguing due to these team’s style of play, with the Green Bay Packers having the 2nd ranked offense in the league [averaging. 32.8 PPG], while the 49ers have the 5th ranked defense in the league [surrendering 19.4 PPG.] The Packers are led by the discount-double-check Aaron Rodgers [2.5 Touchdowns Throw], who consistently maintains his high level of play. Rodgers has hit the over on touchdowns thrown on his player prop betting line in 4 of the last five games he has played in, combing for 14 TDs in that span. On the other side of the ball, the Niners top QB in Jimmy Garoppolo is ruled out injured and is led by Nick Mullens [O/U 215.5 Passing Yards.] Mullens had a solid game last week in a loss to the Seahawks, finishing with 238 passing yards while hitting the over on his player prop betting line.
An injured Jimmy Garoppolo has profound implications for this 49ers team. Unfortunately, their problem extends further with the absence of two of their top receiving options in TE George Kittle and WR Deebo Samuel. The Niners also have a depleted ground attack with Raheem Mostert and Tevin Coleman out, Nick Mullens will have a difficult time running this offense. Rookie WR Brandon Aiyuk [O/U 63.5 Receiving Yards] will have large shoes to fill in this matchup. Aiyuk has stepped-up in these past two weeks finishing with 115 yards and 91 yards, hitting the over on his player prop betting line on both occasions. Joining Aiyuk in this depleted receiving core is Kendrick Bourne [O/U 45.5 Receiving Yards], who had a monstrous game against Seattle last week, finishing with eight receptions for 81 yards and hitting the over on his player prop bet line. It is an incredibly tough task to fill in for a First-team All-Pro, but TE Ross Dwelley [O/U 20.5 Receiving Yards] is tasked with doing just that. Dwelley has seen limited action so far this season, playing in just three games, but he has hit the over on his player prop betting line on one occasion in a Week 3 victory over the Giants.
Aaron Rodgers leads this high-powered Packers offense and is joined by standout WR Davante Adams [O/U 91.5 Receiving Yards.] Adams managed to score 3 TDs against the Vikings last week but hit the under on his player prop betting line in a loss to Minnesota. The Packers have two quality tight ends in this offense with Robert Tonyan Jr. [O/U 3.5 Receptions] and Jace Sternberger [O/U 25.5 Receiving Yards.] Although the Packers lost last week, this duo did show up with Tonyan catching five receptions and Sternberger finishing with 46 yards. Both tight ends managed to hit the over on their player prop betting line even though the Packers lost. If Green Bay wants to get back to their winning ways, they will need their top receiver in Adams to hit the over on his player prop bet line rather than their tight ends.
