NFL Odds Week 3: How to Bet 49ers-Broncos

the San Francisco 49ers travel to the Mile High City to face the Denver Broncos at 8:20 p.m. Sunday at Empower Field.

The 49ers enter this game with a new but familiar face at quarterback in Jimmy Garoppolo, given Trey Lance’s injury. Now that the quarterback controversy is over, the 49ers can focus on getting back into the NFC championship game again this season.

The Broncos are 1-1 after a low-scoring affair with the Houston Texans last week. So far, Russell Wilson has struggled to fit into Denver’s schemes and the offense has stagnated. Wilson works better running sets and lots of game action, which isn’t what Denver has focused on so far. If the Broncos are trying 64-yard field goals instead of putting the ball in Russ’s hands or designing an offense that doesn’t suit his strengths, then why give him such a big contract?

FOX Sports Betting Analyst Insights Patrick Everson:

One of the biggest line moves of the week so far is in Sunday night’s clash between the San Francisco 49ers Y Denver Broncos. Denver opened with a consensus 2.5-point favorite, but the line jumped the fence Monday and San Fran is now -1.5.

And that’s with the Niners losing starting QB trey lance for the season after he suffered a broken ankle last weekend. The aforementioned sharp gambler certainly likes the 49ers with Jimmy Garoppolo back under center.

“I took San Francisco +2.5 when it opened,” he said. “Before the season, I mentioned what Russell Wilson it’s for Denver, a below-average QB. Denver is also banged up. And the 49ers are better off with Jimmy G at QB.”

WynnBet’s Manica noted that early Niners love this week as well.

“The Broncos haven’t passed the eye test in their two games against what most consider to be two of the weakest teams in the NFL,” Manica said, referring to a loss in Seattle and a fight to beat the visit houston. “We’re seeing a step up in competition from the Broncos against a solid 49ers squad. San Francisco is an angle that a number of people like. The team is helped somewhat by the loss of Lance as it reduces variance. of results they would have”. have with a younger quarterback.

“Jimmy G has a strong history with Shanahan and he’s going to try to build on that as the Broncos are still trying to figure it out with the new pieces they have.”
