Why Bet The San Francisco 49ers To Beat The Colts
The 49ers haven’t won a game this season, but they sure have been a solid bet. San Francisco is 3-1 ATS, and the Cardinals needed overtime to take them down last weekend.
San Francisco has dropped three losses with a combined 8-points differential. The 49ers’ young defense has been beyond impressive, though injuries to linebacker Reuben Foster (high ankle sprain) and strong safety Eric Reid (knee) could catch up with them.
Last week, they sacked Carson Palmer six times. The team is tied for sixth in the NFL in fewest yards allowed per play at 4.9.
Why Bet The Indianapolis Colts To Beat The 49ers
Indianapolis gave the Seahawks a scare in the first half of last week’s tilt, but couldn’t hold it together for a full four quarters. The Colts have been outscored 68 to 12 in the second half of the three losses this season against the Rams, Cardinals, and Seahawks; all three NFC West teams like the 49ers.
QB Jacoby Brissett has completed 59.1% of his passes with two touchdowns and two interceptions. With Andrew Luck coming back to practice this past week, Brissett will have to make the most of his playing time. Expect him to be sharp.
If You Still Can’t Decide Who To Bet On:
- 49ers are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games in Week 5.
- 49ers are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 road games.
- Colts are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games following a ATS loss.
- Colts are 26-9 ATS vs. a team with a losing record.
49ers at Colts Week 5 Betting Analysis:
The 49ers defense is underrated, mostly because the offense is so inept. Indianapolis is one of the worst coached and managed teams in the NFL. Give me San Francisco to win on the road.
