After starting season 3-5, the San Francisco 49ers have a shot to win the birth right in the playoff this week when they host the Houston Texans as the 12.5 point favorite at WynnBET Sportsbook for a total of 44.
As BetSided’s Donnavan Smoot pointed out earlier this week the 49ers need to win, followed by a loss or draw by the New Orleans Saints against their opponents the Carolina Panthers.
While the spread indicates that a win is likely, another number has caught the attention of bettors this week: 49ers team total
Following the Buccaneers (13 favorites at the Jets) and Bills (14.5 home favorites against the Falcons), the 49ers have the third-highest implied team total on the table this week at 28.5; and that is despite not knowing who will be the starting midfielder!
Considering that Lance has just started one NFL game in his career: a 10-17 loss to the Arizona Cardinals in Week 5; this is the full backing of the 49ers’ offensive game plan; or a heavy loss by a Houston Texans team that just stunned the LA Chargers at their home turf last week.
My guess is it’s more later. Houston ranked 29th in allowed points, 30 yards, and second in hastily abandoned touchdowns. The 49ers, known for their prowess in the run and play-action game, are third in the NFL for quick touchdowns and seventh for yards.
Ultimately, odds researchers believe that regardless of whether Garoppolo or Lance plays, the 49ers will smash rocks into the Texas defense averaging 141.3 yards of ground abandon all season, while tied at second place in yards per game. at 5.9. Only Raven is worse this year; averaged 6.1 yards per play on the defensive side of the ball.
Search San Francisco to run it against the Texans not equipped to stop them on Sunday afternoon.
