San Francisco 49ers vs New York Giants odds and pick - Week 10, 2018

Nov 8, 2018 at 8:13 AM0


The San Francisco 49ers are coming off their most dominating win this season over a completely dismantled and broken Raiders squad, led by an inspiring performance from Nick "BDN" Mullens and a successfully aggressive pass rush. The Niners will look to keep the momentum going against another bottom dwelling team in the New York Giants under the bright lights of Monday Night Football. Here we discuss the odds and analysis from a betting perspective.

When: Monday November 12, 2018 at 5:15 PM PST (ESPN)
Where: Levi's Stadium, Santa Clara, California
Line: 49ers -3, total at 43.5

New York Giants
The Giants are coming off a bye week in the midst of another under-achieving, dismal performing season. Prior to the start of the season, the Giants were actually a team that received some attention as a possible contender given the talent on the roster, but the season so far has confirmed that Eli Manning is no longer a viable NFL quarterback and left them with nothing much more to play for besides draft position.

New York's offense is 20th with 353.3 yards per game and 27th with 18.8 points per game, earning a 23rd ranked offensive DAVE rating of -4.3 percent. The Giants' run and pass offenses are ranked 31st and 9th, respectively.

The Giants' defense is 21st in allowing 366.4 yards per game and 22nd in giving up 25.6 points per game, leading to a 28th ranked defensive DAVE rating of 8.2 percent. New York's run and pass defenses are ranked 23rd and 16th respectively.

Eli Manning is ranked 25th with a DYAR of -43 and 30th with a QBR of 39.9. The Giants are 24th with a weighted DVOA of -13.3 percent, 3-5 ATS, 3-5 to the over/under with their last 2 games going under the total.

San Francisco 49ers
The 49ers gave their best performances of the season on both sides of the ball last Thursday and Nick Mullens may have stirred a quarterback controversy with his 262 yard, 3 touchdown and 0 interception display in prime time.

The Niners' offense is 18th with 354.6 yards per game and 18th with 23.0 points per game, earning a 28th ranked offensive DAVE rating of -16.0 percent. San Francisco's run and pass offenses are ranked 4th and 25th, respectively.

San Francisco's defense is 14th in allowing 351.7 yards per game and 24th in conceding 26.6 points per game, corresponding with a 24th ranked defensive DAVE rating of 3.7 percent. The Niners' run and pass defenses are ranked 12th and 17th, respectively.


After one start against the Raiders, Nick Mullens has a DYAR of 101 and QBR of 76.6. The 49ers are 26th with a weighted DVOA of -18.0 percent, 3-6 ATS, 5-4 to the over/under with their last 3 games going under the total.

Prediction
The million dollar question upon which this game hinges is whether Nick Mullens and the 49ers defense looked good against the Raiders because of Nick Mullens and the 49ers defense or because the Raiders are the most atrocious and dysfunctional team in football.

We have been terrible picking Niners games ATS this season and this three game stretch between some of the worst teams in the NFL is particularly challenging because it hasn't been obvious which teams have completely given up and which teams are still trying to win.

Hindsight is 20/20 and even though we noted that the Raiders seemed more explicit in tanking and surmised that Shanahan's pride would lead to him wanting to prove himself with winning, we still couldn't put two and two together and anticipate the huge discrepancy in effort that we witnessed last Thursday.

Even though they traded Eli Apple, the Giants do not appear to have given up completely, as exemplified by their being a 63-yard Graham Gano field goal away from beating the Panthers in Carolina, and we anticipate that they may come out of the bye rested and with some residual pride in this prime time match-up.

Based on the hypothesis of the Giants having talent on their roster, being rested with some residual pride left in the tank for a prime time game, taken together with the likelihood of Nick Mullens and the Niners defense coming back down to earth when not facing the most dysfunctional, resigned team in the league in the Raiders, we will take the Giants to win outright. Pick: Giants +3

Season
2-7 ATS
6-3 SU

Here's what 3 sources told Dan Patrick about the 49ers and the No. 3 draft pick

By David Bonilla
Apr 1, 2021

Dan Patrick shared some insight into what the San Francisco 49ers are planning to do with the No. 3 overall pick after trading some hefty draft capital last week to move into that spot. Many analysts are projecting Alabama quarterback Mac Jones to be the pick, but others feel he could have been had with a later selection. Would Jones have made it all the way down to No. 12, the 49ers' original spot? Maybe not. But selecting him at No. 3 is viewed by many as a massive reach. With Trevor Lawrence of Clemson and Zach Wilson of BYU expected to be off the board by the 49ers' selection, both Justin Fields of Ohio State and Trey Lance of North Dakota State are widely seen as passers with higher ceilings compared to Jones. So, what is Patrick hearing? "Yeah,



Breer: It would take a 1st-round pick for the 49ers to consider trading Jimmy Garoppolo right now

There is no sense of urgency from the San Francisco 49ers to move on from Jimmy Garoppolo. In fact, the quarterback fits nicely into the team's plans for the upcoming season, even after general manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan pulled the trigger on moving up in the draft to secure a quarterback of the future. The 49ers are built to win right now. They believe they have a championship-caliber roster in place and that last season's six-win campaign was an abnormality due almost entirely to a historic number of injuries. If you feel you can compete for a Super Bowl, why would you supplant a veteran quarterback who knows the playbook and system for a



Another report surfaces that 49ers seek a 1st-round pick for Jimmy Garoppolo

A second report stating that the San Francisco 49ers seek a first-round pick to consider trading Jimmy Garoppolo has surfaced. That means the team has no real desire to part ways with the quarterback despite making a move last week to draft his successor. San Francisco seeks to keep Garoppolo around for this season, allowing the team to ease a rookie into the playbook and offense. On Wednesday, Albert Breer of Sports Illustrated reported that it would take a first-round pick for the 49ers to consider altering their plan for the upcoming season. "I was told that, yes, it'd take a first-round pick for the Niners to listen at this point," Breer wrote, "which



Jeremiah on 49ers' pick in latest mock draft: 'I am surprised that everything you hear points toward Jones'

By David Bonilla

With so many smokescreens and teams keeping their strategies close to the vest, it's tough to believe anything you hear when it comes to pre-draft rumors and speculation. Everyone in the media feels the San Francisco 49ers traded up to the No. 3 spot for Alabama quarterback Mac Jones, whether they can make sense of it or not. Much of that is based on what they hear from around the league. Their colleagues and other teams feel Jones might be the pick, despite the overwhelming opinion that the selection would be a reach. NFL Media analyst Bucky Brooks doesn't even view Jones as worthy of a first-round pick, much less No. 3 overall. "Perhaps the Alabama quarterback is a secret member of The Avengers, operating like Tony Stark as Iron Man,"
