New York vs. San Francisco, 8:20p, ESPN (49ers -3, O/U: 45)
Outside of Saquan Barkley, there really isn’t a bright spot on this offense. Sure they’ve kept some games close and even beat the Texans on the road but when the game has come down to the last possessions, the Giants couldn’t score. Manning hasn’t been terrible but he’s not exactly getting it done like a franchise quarterback at this stage in his career should be.
The 49ers have gone through their own messes throughout the season but mostly on the injury side of things. With CJ Beathard out last week recovering from a concussion, undrafted rookie Nick Mullins filled in and made the most of his opportunity by throwing for 262 yards and 3 touchdowns. He looked super comfortable and confident which is a scary combination for defenses especially for an undrafted rookie looking to make an impression.
Mullins gets the start again and has some buzz around him with an offense that still is playing hard for their coach. Take the 49ers to cover in the over, 49ers 27-21.
