49ers Vs. Packers Betting Lines: Green Bay Favored By 5 To 5.5 Points

The San Francisco 49ers and the Green Bay Packers will face each other at Lambeau Field on the opening Sunday of the 2012 NFL regular season. Both are favorites to win their division, and definite contenders to win the NFC. Green Bay opened as a touchdown favorite, but the line has dropped a few points, to between 5 and 5.5 points.

Green Bay probably has the most explosive offense in the league with one of the top signal-callers in Aaron Rodgers, while San Francisco counters by returning all of their defensive starters and a run-heavy offense. While Green Bay has generally proven they can blow out even the best opponents, if the 49ers can control the clock and keep the football away from Rodgers, they will be in prime position to keep the game close. That's part of the reasons why it makes sense that the line has dropped a bit from its earlier mark.
