Even Kyle Shanahan lost his composure and it now seems that all the F-bombs and innovating coaching in the world can't stop the momentum building toward locking up the number one pick in 2019, as they have nothing but potential playoff teams for the rest of their schedule, starting with the rising Denver Broncos this Sunday. Here we discuss the odds and analysis from a betting perspective. When: Sunday December 9th at 1:05pm PST (CBS) Where: Levi's Stadium, Santa Clara, California Line: Broncos -4, total at...

    The San Francisco 49ers enter a new era in 2018, the first full season with Jimmy Garoppolo as the starting quarterback and the first in which wagering on sports is legal in the United States of America. Currently, the 49ers' predicted win total for the 2018 season is set at 8.5 games with the over 8.5 at +120 and under at -140. Here we predict the 49ers' 2018 season win total by game. Week 1 Sunday, September 9 @ Minnesota Jimmy Garoppolo's win streak of NFL games as a starter will come to an end at some point, and it's more likely to happen than not in his first week of the 2018 season. The Vikings finished 4th in overall in team efficiency at the end of the 2017 season and upgraded their quarterback and return a healthy Dalvin Cook. Adding George...

    It's a total coincidence that San Francisco 49ers linebacker Reuben Foster and former linebacker Aldon Smith were in the news cycle in the same week, as these are two different people who played at different times. Foster was charged with multiple felonies and Smith was noted to have a near-lethal blood alcohol level when he turned himself into police. But if one wants Foster's talent so badly that they are willing to be in denial of the emerging similarities between the 49ers' handling of both Foster and Smith, it could lead to similarly unfortunate outcomes. We've...

    At the height of the San Francisco 49ers' rivalry with the Seattle Seahawks, defensive dominance drove each team and usually dictated who won their games. Now that Seattle's Legion of Boom has aged and is being systematically dismantled, the 49ers should take advantage of the decline of the Seahawks' vaunted defensive squad by bolstering their own defense in hopes of shifting the balance of the NFC West. Michael Silver of NFL.com first portended that "Winter is Coming" for the Legion of Boom, predicting that the Seahawks were likely to move on from Richard Sherman and Earl Thomas, were possibly ambivalent about Kam Chancellor, and...

    On April 7th, 2017, former 49ers cornerback Tramaine Brock was arrested for hitting a woman he had been dating. The following day, 49ers general manager John Lynch released Brock and reiterated the organization's commitment to character. Following 49ers linebacker Reuben Foster's second arrest this off-season last Sunday, most recently for alleged domestic violence, John Lynch now faces the most challenging decision of his tenure so far. Since their introduction, Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan have reiterated themes of discipline, accountability, and character as integral to the organization, and maintaining their commitment to these virtues should mean releasing Reuben Foster. One of the possible reasons owner Jed York made a talking point about "winning...

    Jimmy Garoppolo's five-year contract extension for $137.5 million made him the highest paid player in the NFL and included the largest guaranteed three-year total ($84 million) and highest annual average value ($27.5 million) in NFL history. When news of his signing came out last Thursday, some argued that it was too much money for a player with such a small sample size, but here are five reasons why the 49ers contract extension with Garoppolo was a wise and fair investment. The front-loaded contract leaves outs for the 49ers and their ample salary-cap space While Garoppolo's guaranteed money is high, cutting Garoppolo after the 2019 season would leave the 49ers with a reasonable $4.2 million in dead money if he does not live up to expectations, according to...
