San Francisco 49ers @ Green Bay Packers best player prop bets

The Green Bay Packers and San Francisco 49ers meet in the playoffs for the fourth time in the last decade and the west coast side have won the previous three.

Despite that, Mike LaFleur’s side head into Saturday night’s game as 6-point favourites and we are expecting Green Bay to cover that.

Aaron Rodgers is head and shoulders above every other quarterback in the NFL this season and has two excellent running backs to help take the pressure off his shoulders at Lambeau Field.

San Francisco will be travelling from their sunny location to freezing temperatures in the North with a roster that picked up key injuries to Joey Bosa and Fred Warner in their 23-17 win at the Dallas Cowboys last weekend.

These two teams met back in week 3 at Levi’s Stadium where Mason Crosby kicked a game winning field goal as time expired. The Packers’ 30-28 victory was a little closer than they deserved, throwing away a big lead in the fourth quarter before narrowly squeaking past the NFC West outfit.

In that game, Jimmy Garoppolo threw for 257 yards, of which tight end George Kittle lead the team in both receptions and yards, with 7 for 92 respectively.

Whilst the 49ers have relied on their ground game more and more as the season has gone by and Kittle himself has been kept fairly quiet during the past four games. This is the playoffs and here you can expect him to step up.

What’s more, as we expect Green Bay to win this, San Francisco will be going through the air more than usual as they play catchup.

The bookmakers have been generous with the Under/Over on George Kittle’s yards this weekend. The top receiver is expected to get around 48.5. We are backing the overs on this one.

Pick: George Kittle over 48.5 receiving yards
