Kickoff of this NFL betting game is scheduled for 10:00 ET at Candlestick Park. 49ers new starting quarterback, J.T. O’Sullivan, is eager to prove that he is the man for the job, and going head to head against an explosive team like the San Diego Chargers is a very good test for him one week before the regular season begins.
Last week, the 49ers were 3.5-point underdogs over the Bears at Soldier Field in Chicago. The ‘total’ in that football betting contest was slated at 36.5. The Bears and the 49ers played solid football, taking turns possessing the ball and scoring with it. By the second quarter, the combined score had already surpassed the ‘total’ declared by the closing NFL odds.
Bettors who had picked the over had come out victorious and could breathe a sigh of relief. San Francisco won the game, beating Chicago by a final score of 37-30, and covered the NFL betting line by 10.5 points. The San Diego Chargers found themselves locked in as 5.5-point favorites to the Seattle Seahawks last Monday night at Qualcomm Stadium.
The ‘total’ in that NFL betting contest closed at 37.5. Quarterback Charlie Frye had an impressive performance for Seattle, completing 19 of his 29 pass attempts for 219 yards, and two touchdowns. The Seahawks were up 17-10 in the fourth quarter when Jacob Hester rushed for a one yard touchdown just before the two minute warning.
The Chargers were successful on a two-point conversion which put them up 18-17 ultimately, securing their second victory of the pre-season. The current NFL odds have the San Francisco 49ers favored over the Seattle Seahawks by two-points with the ’total’ standing pat at 36.5 for tonight’s NFL Pre-season betting affair.
