49ers now 1.5-point favorites against Buccaneers

Oct 23, 2016 at 7:39 AM--


Surprise, surprise. The San Francisco 49ers are actually favored in a game. As of Sunday morning, the 49ers are 1.5-point favorites against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who they host this afternoon at Levi's Stadium.

Until now, the 49ers have not been a favorite in any game this season. Earlier in the week, the Buccaneers were 2.5-point favorites to beat the 49ers.

RB Doug Martin (hamstring) has been ruled out for the Buccaneers. While that is good for the 49ers, San Francisco will be without Carlos Hyde (shoulder).


The 49ers have lost five-straight games and have allowed a 100-yard rusher in each of those game. The team enters their bye week following today's game.

RELATED Preview: Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2-3) at San Francisco 49ers (1-5)

The 49ers and Buccaneers kick off today at 1:05 p.m.

Stephen A. Smith says 49ers are champions right now if Aaron Rodgers, not Jimmy Garoppolo, were the QB

The Aaron Rodgers to San Francisco 49ers talk is starting early. Maybe nearly a year early. First, Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk explored the idea of the future Hall of Famer joining his hometown team and the organization that passed him up in 2005 for Alex Smith. Now, ESPN's First Take is joining the discussion. Rodgers' days in Green Bay may be numbered after the team selected Jordan Love in the first round of April's draft. After enduring over a month of discussion earlier this offseason surrounding Tom Brady potentially replacing Jimmy Garoppolo in San Francisco, it seems like fans might have to put up with talk about the next possible Garoppolo replacement. That's what analyst Domonique Foxworth, along with ESPN personality Stephen

Jimmy Garoppolo is better than Carson Wentz right now, says ESPN host

Jimmy Garoppolo could become a top-10 NFL quarterback. That's what Max Kellerman of ESPN's First Take believes. To do so, he'll still need to prove himself in the playoffs. Garoppolo has shown himself to be a clutch passer during the regular season. His playoff-game performances earlier this year, however, have fueled the criticism from his doubters. The Philadelphia Eagles have a franchise quarterback by the name of Carson Wentz, a 27-year-old signal-caller who many believe to be a rising star in the league. If Kellerman were to rank NFL quarterbacks right now, he might have to put Garoppolo ahead of Wentz. That caused a bit of a heated

Mike Phillips of FanSided endeavored to name the worst call against each NFL team in their history. So naturally, I skipped past 31 NFL teams and headed straight to the call that went against the San Francisco 49ers. The FanSided contributor chose the holding call against Ronnie Lott in the NFC Championship Game during the 1983 season. San Francisco had won just one Super Bowl at that point and was fighting for its second Vice Lombardi Trophy. Washington had jumped out to a 21-0 lead in the third quarter and looked well on its way to easily eliminating the 49ers. The 49ers started mounting a fourth-quarter comeback, though. Joe Montana hit Mike Wilson for a score.
