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.

San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle joined KNBR after Tuesday's practice and started the conversation by praising a defensive teammate—Jimmie Ward. Ward might be the most underrated player on a defense boasting stars Nick Bosa and Fred Warner. The 49ers tight end knows how valuable the veteran safety is for the team, though. "I said [in a previous interview] Jimmie Ward might be one of the most underrated players in the NFL," Kittle said on the Papa & Lund show. "... When it's man coverage, you don't want Jimmie Ward on you because he's quick, he's physical, and he's really, really fast. He's got great hands, and he knows how to hold without getting holding calls. He's very good at that. "I'm very blessed to be able to go against
