Analyzing the Over/Under in the Giants vs. Niners Match-Up

The San Francisco 49ers have had back-to-back blowout victories after losing to the Vikings in week 3. In the last two weeks the Niners have only conceded a single FG, and have won by a combined score of 79-3. This defense is incredible and the Giants offense is going to have a tough time against them.

The San Francisco defense ranks 2nd against the pass (181.2 PYPG) and 7th against the rush (81.4 RYPG). They’ve only allowed 13.6 PPG this year, which ranks #1 in the league. The biggest question for the over/under is, how well is the Niners offense going to perform?

The 49ers are tied for 3rd in the NFL, scoring 29.8 points per game. Combined with their incredible defense, the Niners lead the NFL at +81 in net points.

The 49ers offense relies heavily on their #1 ranked rushing offense (196.2 RYPG) which has already recorded 8 TD’s on the season. If the Giants can slow down Gore and Hunter (not an easy task), I expect the total to stay under. However, the Giants rushing defense hasn’t been great this year, giving up an average of 4.5 yards per carry.

Alex Smith has played well this year, but the 49ers only rank 27th in passing offense. The Giants passing defense has been weak also, ranking 22nd and giving up 261.4 yards per game. However, they have 8 INT’s on the year, and they’ll be looking for every chance they can get to cause turnovers.

It’ll be interesting to see how much action Mario Manningham and Brandon Jacobs get this week for the 49ers. This is their 1st game against the Giants since being let go by the Giants, and I’m sure both players want to make an impression on this game.

The New York Giants have one of the most explosive offenses in the league, yet they’re often underrated by handicappers. The Giants have the 3rd ranked passing offense (309 PYPG) and 12th ranked rushing offense (120.2 RYPG). They also average 30.4 PPG (2nd).

New York Giants vs. San Francisco 49ers Over/Under Pick

Bet Under 46 (-110) @ BetOnline.com

The way the 49ers have been playing on defense, this game could end up way under the total. The Giants haven’t had a pass rush the past couple of weeks and they need to fix that, otherwise the 49ers are going to run all over them. I expect the Niners to run, run, run, and eat up valuable time off the clock. Eli Manning will get his shots, but he’s also going to get a lot of pressure. The Giants offense should have a much tougher time this week, and when combined with the 49ers controlling the time of possession by running the ball, I see this one going under the total.

The over/under has gone up a 1/2 point this week, and I wouldn’t expect much movement from where we are now. I’d grab the under 46 points if you like the bet now. If you wait you may be able to get another ½ pt, but you also risk the line going down.
