San Francisco 49ers Betting Trends

The 49ers are 5-0 against the spread in their last five games versus divisional opponents, are 4-1 against the number in their last five games overall, and are 4-1 at the betting window in their last five conference games. Still, San Francisco is winless at 0-5 against the spread in its last five games played in October.

OUR PREDICTION: The Cardinals have issues offensively and it starts with their offensive line. They can't protect Carson Palmer, who doesn't have the mobility to overcome when his line does break down. The 49ers were horrible defensively a week ago but they have an underrated front seven that can put pressure in Palmer's face. The Cardinals are coming off a short week of practice and rest and now play a divisional opponent today with their season basically on the line. They should win, but I like the Niners to keep things close after finally showing signs of life offensively last Thursday.
