Betting San Francisco 49ers
San Francisco allowed two touchdown scores (which included one off a fumble return) in the first quarter of last Sunday’s game. They digged a hole that the team could not climb out of. To prevent Kansas City from getting off to an early lead on the scoreboard and to do a much better job of establishing the ground game this week is going to be key to pulling off the upset.
The 49ers went into their away game against the Atlanta Falcons last Sunday as a 3.5-point road fave at the best NFL gambling sites. They were in the midst of a 3-1 SU straight-up and ATS against the spread run.

After they fell into an early 14-0 deficit in the first quarter, San Francisco would eventually lose 28-14 to Atlanta. They allowed 168 rushing yards on the ground in the loss.

Kansas City Chiefs vs. San Francisco 49ers NFL Pick
We get the case that can be made for either side in this game. But we are going to lean towards the total going over. This Kansas City offensive attack can put up points like nobody’s business. While San Francisco has a remarkable scoring defense, we think that they will find a challenge here in Patrick Mahomes who can seemingly score at will. On the other side of the equation, the 49ers are more than capable of putting points up. We think that they will have to go ahead and do so if they really want to have a chance in this here game. We will side with the over.
