Last year the San Francisco 49ers won their regular season home game against the NY Giants 27-20, but lost to them 20-17 in the NFC Championship game. San Francisco will get their 1st chance at revenge on Sunday, and they’ve got a great shot at getting it. The Niners come as 6.5 to 7 point favorites as of Sunday morning.

San Francisco 49ers vs. New York Giants Betting Preview

The NY Giants and SF 49ers don’t like each other, and there’s been a lot of trash talk this week leading up to this game. I expect both teams to be battling it out and one team to come out on top by a FG, so therefore I’m backing the Giants +6.5 (-105) at BetOnline.com.

Last week the 49ers absolutely thrashed the Bills at home 45-3 and they set a franchise record with 621 total yards. New York is a much better team defensively than the Bills and all of the trash talk will raise the ante this week.

This season the Giants have done poorly on defense, except against the run where they rank 16th in the league. They still allow 100+ RYPG on average, and although they haven’t been putting on much pressure lately, I expect motivation to be much higher this week.

If the Giants can pressure 49ers QB Alex Smith and stop the run, they’ll have a chance to shut down the 49ers offense. San Francisco needs to be running well in order to move the football consistently, and I think the G-Men will keep them limited.

Offensively the Giants have been playing great this year, but on the road in San Francisco will be tough. The 49ers have the best defense in the league, and at home they’re even better. The good news is that the Giants rushing game got going last week.

The Niners are going to have to game plan for Bradshaw, as he showed last week he can still break some runs. Eli Manning will need to work hard to find space against the Niners #2 ranked passing defense, but with the run game going it should be easier for him.

Giants vs. 49ers Week 6 Pick 2012

Bet on the New York Giants +6.5 (-105) at BetOnline.com

I think both offenses are going to struggle, as you can see in my Giants vs. 49ers over/under prediction for this game. Normally when you bet the under taking a big underdog is automatic, and that’s what I’ve done in this game now that the point spread has gone up.

There are no major injury concerns right now except for Giants TE Martellus Bennett, who hasn’t been able to practice this week. Alex Smith has a sprained finger on his throwing hand and will be playing this week, but he may not be totally effective.
