Vik’s Picks returns for another Thursday Night Football best bet. Tonight’s game is between the Packers and 49ers and presents some value betting mid-week.
San Francisco 49ers +7
As Vik points out, when the season started this matchup was listed at Niners -6. Now, of course, the 49ers are decimated with injuries and COVID to their best players on both sides of the ball. But Vik sees that the Packers are dreadful at stopping the run, and that’s what Kyle Shanahan’s defense does best. And the Packers are having their own problems with key players unable to suit up because of COVID. That makes seven points a little too rich for Vik’s blood.
