  • Sharps are betting tonight's San Francisco 49ers-Green Bay Packers (-9) matchup on Monday Night Football (8:15 p.m. ET on ESPN).
  • Using The Action Network's betting tools, we analyze how professionals are playing this game.

It’s easy to understand why the NFL scheduled San Francisco 49ers-Green Bay Packers for the bright lights of Monday Night Football with Aaron Rodgers facing off against Jimmy Garoppolo.

Unfortunately for the 49ers and football fans in general, Garoppolo suffered a torn ACL in San Francisco’s Week 3 game against Kansas City and will miss the rest of the 2018 season.

While this game has certainly lost some mainstream luster, it still provides another opportunity for bettors to find value.

And according to The Action Network’s proprietary betting data, sharp money has quietly come down on this matchup.

Green Bay opened as a 9-point favorite at BookMaker against San Francisco and is receiving 76% of spread tickets. The line remains at Packers -9, but professional money has already had a hand in keeping it there.

The line has popped up to +9.5 a couple of times throughout the week, and sharp bettors pounced at that number. Sports Insights’ Bet Signals have triggered two Reverse Line Moves on the 49ers — both at +9.5.

With the line now sitting at -9, it’ll be interesting to monitor how bettors play this number through kickoff.

Considering this line has bounced between 8.5 and 9.5, key numbers such as 7 or 10 have yet to be in play. However, don’t be surprised to see two-way action if the market rallies enough Packers support to move the line to double digits before 49ers buyback hits at the key number of +10.
