San Francisco 49ers


The Niners dominated the Los Angeles Rams from start to finish and on both sides of the ball in what could be described as their most complete performance of the season in a 31-10 drubbing.

San Francisco ranks 6th in total weighted DVOA at 18.5 percent, 3rd in offensive DVOA at 15.0 percent with a 5th ranked offensive pass DVOA at 34.7.percent and 7th ranked offensive rush DVOA at 1.6 percent.

Deebo Samuel, Maurice Hurst, Jaylon Moore, Elijah Mitchell and JaMycal Hasty are questionable for Week 11.

Prediction


The last three weeks in the NFL have exemplified how volatile and unpredictable the outcomes can be, as ugly, buy-low underdogs have not only covered spreads but won games outright. Teams that appeared to be world beaters one week have soiled the bed the next, reminding us that this is a week to week league and cautioning against letting recency bias sway bettors into perceiving that what happened last week might be repeated the next.

Similarly, the San Francisco 49ers have not covered the spread in consecutive weeks in 2021, displaying a zigzag pattern of covering every other week since coming out of their Week 6 bye. And after their most complete performance of the season in the national spotlight, we are hesitant to assume that the Niners will string together back-to-back complete performances and would not feel comfortable laying almost a touchdown on the road.

The Jacksonville Jaguars are perceived to be one of the worst teams in the NFL and could be considered a buy-low team, but they have quietly outperformed expectations in covering two straight, including a 9-6 victory over the much heralded Buffalo Bills as 14.5 point underdogs in Week 9, and we could only consider taking the points with the home underdog if forced to pick a side.

The Jaguars rank 2nd in offensive rush DVOA and will no doubt lean on the run game as much as possible, and even if Elijah Mitchell is out for San Francisco, we anticipate that Kyle Shanahan will continue to anchor his offense off of the run even if it is with Jeff Wilson Jr.

With both teams leaning on the run game and both featuring rushing defenses that rank in the top ten, points could end up being at a premium, and San Francisco runs the risk of coming out a bit flat after a huge win and a shorter week with travel to the east coast. The final score has gone under the total in three of four home games and in four consecutive weeks for Jacksonville, and we see that continuing in Week 11.

Pick: Under 45.5

2021 Season ATS: 4-5

By David Bonilla

The San Francisco 49ers are a win away from returning to the Super Bowl. The team got there during the 2019 season but failed to hold onto a lead over the Kansas City Chiefs. Now, they have an opportunity to make amends for that heartbreaking defeat. Fred Warner was on that last Super Bowl team. It was the linebacker's second year in the NFL. Now, three years later, Warner and the 49ers are on the cusp of another trip to the big game. So what would winning in his second trip mean to the All-Pro defender? "It would mean everything, seriously," Warner recently told Rich Eisen. "We've been there. We've been to the NFC Championship Game three out of the last four years. I've been to the Super Bowl.

The San Francisco 49ers defeated the Dallas Cowboys in the playoffs for the second consecutive year, this time by a score of 19-12 to advance to the NFC Championship Game, where they'll face off against the Philadelphia Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field. The 49ers faced their share of offensive struggles, but ultimately gained enough momentum in the second half to take the lead after an early Dallas field goal, which they never gave up. Brock Purdy faced the toughest pass rush of his short NFL career, and the Cowboys brought the heat, pressuring the rookie quarterback on 48.5% of his dropbacks, which is a
