New York Giants
San Francisco 49ers
By: Jason Green
New York Giants (1-7 SU 3-5 ATS) vs. San Francisco 49ers (2-7 SU 3-6 ATS)
The Giants have lost five in a row and one of their bright spots came last week because they did not play having a bye. They are in the basement of the NFC East and they have struggled on both sides of the ball. They rank 2nd to last in the league in rushing yards per Game and Eli Manning has five interceptions in his last Four Games.
The 49ers snapped their six-Game skid in their last Game in a 34-3 blowout win over the Oakland Raiders. Nick Mullins will get another start under center and he had one of the best statistical Games for a debut in the win over Oakland. San Fran played great defense in the win over the Raiders and that has been their main issue on the season only ranking 24th giving up an average of 26.6 ppg.
At YOUWAGER sportsbook the 49ers are a 3-point home favorite with a total of 43.5.

Jason’s Pick: The Giants are a mess, Manning has struggled all season, and Barkley has not played well in the last two Games. The 49ers have also had a season to forget, but got a bright spot in their last Game with the play of Mullins. He will have another good Game and the 49ers will win their 2nd in a row, as well as covering the spread, and they will hand the Giants their 6th straight loss.
