Kickoff is scheduled for 1:00 ET on Sunday. These former division rivals met in Week 8 last year, where the Saints beat the 49ers by a final score of 31-10. New Orleans was in Denver last week to face the undefeated Broncos, who NFL odds makers forecasted to be a five point favorite over the Saints, with the ‘total’ slated at a big 51.5.
Denver started early with two Jay Cutler touchdown passes in the first quarter. New Orleans came back in the second quarter to narrow the Broncos’ lead to five points at halftime, 24-19.
NFL betting fans who anticipated these top rated offensive teams would score a lot of points were happy they rolled the dice; the ‘total’ went over the predicted number in Denver’s 34-32 victory. Unfortunately for football bettors who picked the Broncos, they were unable to cover the NFL betting line.
San Francisco was a five point favorite over the Detroit Lions last Sunday at Candlestick Park in San Francisco, with the ‘total’ listed at 47. 49ers QB J.T. O’Sullivan threw two touchdown passes in the first half and RB Frank Gore added another on the ground to give San Francisco a 21-3 lead at the break.
Lions QB Jon Kitna threw an interception in the third quarter, but the 49ers missed a field goal after they recovered the football. Detroit committed four turnovers (one interception, three fumbles) in this game and currently has a turnover ratio of (-5) on the season.
The 49ers covered the football betting line in their 31-13 victory last Sunday, but the predicted total missed the mark by three points; if only the 49ers had made that field goal, it would have ended in a push for those who bet on pro football.
The New Orleans Saints are a six-point favorite at home vs. the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday, with the ‘total’ currently sitting at 48.5. Sports-Gambling.com is the premier online sports betting website; login today for all NFL spread, total, and money line wagering.
