San Francisco 49ers versus Las Vegas Raiders Lines and Match Info

Why bet on San Francisco versus Las Vegas?

The 49ers are gearing up for a deep playoff run. The one question was whether Brock Purdy could pick up where Jimmy G. and the offense had left off.

After Garoppolo went down with an injury, some put a fork into the 49ers. All Purdy has done is play like he has been in Kyle Shanahan’s offensive system for the past decade. Purdy has an 8 TD to 3 INT ratio, completes over 67% of his passes, and has thrown for over 900 yards in less than 4 starts.

Why bet on Las Vegas versus San Francisco ?

Josh McDaniel benched quarterback Derek Carr, which explains why the line moved from SF -6 to 49ers -9.5. Carr is the much more accomplished quarterback than Jarrett Stidham.

But Stidham knows McDaniels’ system better than Carr does. Josh is trying to fire up his offense. He realizes how good the Niners are versus the rush. The gambit could pay off with at least a cover victory.

San Francisco 49ers at Las Vegas Raiders Final Betting Prediction

San Francisco steam rolls opponents, but in this case, the line has moved too much. The game happens in Vegas where the Raiders are a terrific 4-2 against the spread.

McDaniels is trying to switch up his offense. The problem is that Carr wasn’t running the O the way Josh wanted, which makes sense.

That doesn’t mean Vegas wins this game. In fact, when it was 6 points, the Niners were a terrific play. SF should get a touchdown and extra point lead. 

But pushing the lead to 10 on the road versus a team with a top defensive end like Maxx Crosby and against a signal-caller who is familiar with the playing calling head coach is asking too much. The Raiders cover.  

NFL Week 17 Pick: Las Vegas Raiders +9.5
