1 RE: Perspective Niners/Packers

The six point spread is ridiculous.  These teams are fairly even with strengths aligning with opponent weaknesses.  Plus both coaches seem desperate to call a game to have the opponent crawl back in if by some chance somebody gets a legit lead.

Bak is questionable and MVS is doubtful. Shouldn't have played last week. 

Don't bet them at -5.5 as MVS is our best stretch.
