Jets vs. 49ers Prediction
Will the 49ers finally pick up their second win of the season when they host the Jets at 4:05PM ET today?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the 49ers are 3-point home favorites versus the Jets while the over/under currently sits at 43.5 points. San Francisco opened as a 1-point favorite before the line jumped two full points to a field goal, while the total opened at 45 before dropping nearly two full points down to 43.5.
JETS KEY TRENDS: The Jets are 6-1-1 against the spread in their last eight games in December and are 4-1 against the number in their last five games playing in Week 14. That said, they have failed to cover in seven of their last 10 games overall, are 1-4 against the spread in their last five road games and are winless at 0-5 ATS in their last five games after allowing more than 250 yards passing in their previous game.
49ERS KEY TRENDS: The Niners are just 2-9 against the spread in their last 11 games overall, are 0-5 against the spread in their last five home games and are 2-8 ATS in their last 10 games following a straight up loss of more than 14 points. They're also 0-4 against the spread in their last four games in December and have failed to cover in six of their last eight games coming off an ATS loss.
OUR PREDICTION: The Jets are coming off a short week in which they were embarrassed on Monday Night Football against the Colts and now have to fly cross-country to play an opponent that is 1-11. I don't like it. Plus, if the players have given up on Todd Bowles this is going to be a long afternoon for the Jets in Santa Clara. The Niners are without left tackle Joe Staley due to a hamstring injury but the mobility of Colin Kaepernick should help mask that situation. This is a roll-of-the-dice no matter which way you go, but I'll take the home team fighting for its first taste of victory since all the way back in Week 1.
