Free NFL Game Pick
This game is a clash between two very good teams. The San Francisco 49ers have been playing great this season. The 49ers are better on the offensive and defensive side of the football. Both teams have split their last 10 head to head meetings. In their last meeting during week 12 of the season the 49ers dominated Green Bay. With Dee Ford and Kwon Alexander returning the 49ers have gotten healthy on the defensive side of the football. I believe San Francisco will dominate this matchup again because of their defensive line. Opposing teams can run the ball against the Packers run defense. I will take the OVER for this game. San Francisco 34. Green Bay 20.
