FanPulse: Packers fans more confident in how bad 49ers are than how good Green Bay is

This is not quite the fantastic matchup we thought it would be a month ago.

The San Francisco 49ers and Green Bay Packers square off under the lights in Week 6, meeting at Lambeau Field on Monday Night Football. This was looking like a premium matchup as recently as a month ago when Jimmy Garoppolo was going to square off with Aaron Rodgers. A torn ACL later, this matchup has lost most of its luster.

While things are not looking pretty for the 49ers, Packers fans are not all that much more happy right now. They realize they have a great quarterback, but given their own expectations, a 2-2-1 start and a recent loss in Detroit has them questioning everything!

Which provides for an interesting dynamic in our weekly FanPulse survey. Each week, we have been running our FanPulse surveys in which we ask about team confidence, how the team will perform in that week’s game, and a broader national game. If you want to take part in the weekly survey, sign up HERE to join FanPulse.

We ask the voters who will win and by how much each week. This week, 49ers voters have the team losing by 11, and Packers voters have their team winning by 7. The spread on this game is currently 9.5 points, with some sportsbooks offering up to 10.5. This suggests to me that 49ers fans generally think this could be a thumping, while Packers fans think this is a game they will win, but it won’t be an easy one. They see the 49ers as not good, but have shaky confidence in their own team.
