Why Bet On San Francisco?

There are a bunch of great reasons to back the Niners in this contest. First, Frisco has answered the bell in every game this season. Then, there’s the fact that San Francisco ranks a stellar third in scoring (29.6 ppg) and even more impressive second in points allowed (11.0 ppg). Another good reason to back the Niners is because Arizona is a rebuilding franchise with a rookie quarterback and first-time NFL head coach.

Why Bet On Arizona?

The Cards might be a rebuilding team, but there are some good reasons to back them in this matchup. First, Arizona has been playing some solid football over the last four weeks, despite having their three-game winning streak snapped in Sunday’s 31-9 smackdown against the Saints. Then, there’s the fact that rookie quarterback Kyler Murray is a transcendent talent who understands how to play the position.

Despite his diminutive stature, Murray has a cannon for a right arm and his ability to make plays outside the pocket is undeniably elite. Last but not least, defensive end Chandler Jones is an elite game-changing player that could potentially do some damage against Jimmy G.

49ers vs Cardinals Expert Analysis and Prediction

While I really like Kyler Murray and the direction of the rebuilding Cardinals, this game just looks like a contest the San Francisco 49ers will win and cover the chalk in. The Niners are the far superior team on both sides of the ball and they have a defense that looks like it will force Murray into a couple of rookie mistakes. The 49ers are 9-4 ATS in their last 13 mad dates against Arizona and the road team in this NFC West rivalry has gone a near-perfect 5-1 ATS in their last 6 meetings. Frisco gets the win and cover, but Murray and Chandler Jones make it interesting.

Pick: San Francisco 28 Arizona 14
