San Francisco 49ers vs. New York Giants, 11/12/18 Week 10 Predictions

Nick Mullens will make his second straight NFL start on Monday night when the San Francisco 49ers host the New York Giants at 8:15 p.m. ET. Laying a field goal to the visitors, will the Niners cover the point spread?

Public Betting Trends

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetNow.eu, the 49ers are 3-point favorites to beat the Giants. The total, meanwhile, sits at 45 points. As of this writing, 57% of the public betting tickets are on the Giants to cover the point spread.

New York Giants

Coach Pat Shurmur said the Giants are preparing new RG Jamon Brown as a starter. Brown started all 16 games for the Rams last season but lost his job this year to Austin Blythe and was cut last week only to be claimed by the Giants. (Multiple teams put in a claim.) Brown is a mauler at 6'4/340 who prefers to run block. If he starts, Brown will replace veteran RG John Greco.

San Francisco 49ers

Pierre Garcon (knee) has been ruled out for Week 10 against the Giants. This was expected after Garcon missed practice all week. Garcon has been battling knee issues for most of the season but this is just his second missed game. The 49ers will go with Kendrick Bourne opposite Marquise Goodwin in two-wide sets. Garcon's absence opens up even more targets for George Kittle.

NFL Betting Trends

New York

The Giants are 4-10 against the spread in their last 14 conference games and 1-4 ATS in their last five games coming off a bye week.

San Francisco

The 49ers are 26-6 against the spread in their last 32 games played on Monday night but are just 5-14 ATS in their last 19 home games.

Prediction

From the pick that will likely make me look stupid for backing Eli Manning department: I’m taking the Giants. This is more about the Niners being overvalued than anything the Giants have done this season because let’s face it, Eli has been terrible and New York will be in the mix next April for the No. 1 overall pick. That said, it’s unlikely Mullens has the same success against the Giants defense as he did last Thursday versus a Raiders team that gave up on Jon Gruden in the middle of the game. If the Giants can somehow find their running game tonight, then perhaps they’ll lean on Saquon Barkley and pick up a road win. With the Patriots, Eagles, Falcons and Jets all losing as sizable favorites, it’s been a weird week. Why not back a 1-7 Giants team playing cross-country?
