“The 49ers impressed to go on the road and beat Dallas. But it will be a third straight road game. It’s tough. The Packers are coming off a bye and picking up some injured guys. advantage for the Packers The key beating the 49ers is locking them up front The Packers have done a great job this year, and now they’ve left tackle David Bakhtiari back to bolster the forward I think Aaron Rodgers will be successful on the field against the secondary 49ers. The key to the Packers’ defense will be how they stop the run and put the play on Jimmy Garoppolo. I think they’ll do a solid job – even if they don’t. will not stop – to find a way to shoot finish this game and advance to the title game.The 49ers are a dangerous team, but Rodgers will make the difference.- CBS Sports senior NFL analyst Pete Prisco explains why he score the points and roll with the P’s ackers.

CBS Sports fantasy and gaming editor RJ White was on a tear with his picks involving the Packers. White went a remarkable 50-16-1 on his last 67 picks involving Green Bay, netting over $3,100 for everyone who followed him. In this game against San Francisco, White is experiencing a crucial X factor that allows him to support one side from the gap.

“The 49ers were able to upset the Cowboys in Dallas, but it was hard to feel good about the win. San Francisco was basically begging the Cowboys to come back to this game with Jimmy Garoppolo doing a number one errors that – against a better opponent – would have sent them home.The Packers, under Aaron Rodgers, are the type of team the 49ers can’t make those types of late-game errors against, because that quarterback- fullback Rodgers hasn’t been able to beat the Niners in the playoffs in the previous three games they’ve faced in his career, but I think that’s changing this postseason.
“The Packers were an NFL-best 7-1 ATS at home this season and are 4-0 ATS in their last four Divisional Round trips. San Francisco has been a strong team on the road (6-4 ATS), but I believe this team will have some errors late in the game that will ultimately prove to be their undoing. It also doesn’t help that they don’t have star passer Nick Bosa (concussion) to pressure Rodgers — CBS Sports NFL writer Tyler Sullivan — who went 5-1 ATS in his Super Wild Card weekend picks — why he likes the Packers over the Niners. to read the rest of his picks, click here.
“The Packers were the only NFL team that went undefeated at home this year, and now they can play a home game in time that’s going to make Lambeau Field feel like a giant igloo. I think the 49ers remain close, but I can’t choose against the Packers here. The prediction is that Aaron Rodgers will earn his first playoff victory against the team that replaced him in the 2005 NFL Draft.” – CBS Sports NFL writer and Pick Six Podcast co-host John Breech explains why he picks the Packers to beat the 49ers, 23-20.
49ers overall Packers picks
“It’s expected to be frozen tundra at Lambeau Field on Saturday with forecast sub-zero wind chills and occasional 20mph gusts of wind. It will be challenging for even the most experienced cold weather players. , but especially for Jimmy Garoppolo, who — as CBS Sports’ John Breech pointed out in his weekly picks column — has never thrown a professional pass in a game where it’s been under 40 degrees on the road this season. .” – CBS Sports NFL writer Tyler Sullivan on why he leans towards the Under in the Packers-49ers.
Top picks for accessories
Jimmy Garoppolo’s total interceptions: Over 0.5 (-135). Garoppolo has thrown five interceptions in his last three starts, including that playoff win over Dallas last week. He looks good for at least two or three errant throws per game, which is enough to open the door for an interception. This season, opposing quarterbacks are averaging 1.5 thrown interceptions per game at Lambeau Field, the second-most in the NFL.
Deebo Samuel’s total rushing yards: over 37.5 (-115). Over the past two weeks, the 49ers have doubled Samuel’s use out of the backfield. His 18 rushing attempts last week and in Week 18 were the most of any two-game streak this season. With this increased workload, Samuel rewarded San Francisco by averaging 6.5 yards per carry. It’s hard to see them walking away from him this weekend, especially with the Packers giving up 4.7 yards per game, tied for third in the NFL.
Total receiving yards for Allen Lazard: over 37.5 (-115). Lazard topped that number in three straight games to end the regular season and averaged nearly six targets per game during that span. With so many looks from Rodgers and Lazard averaging 12.8 yards per reception, it might not take much for him to top this prop.
