49ers Broncos Betting Tips - National-Television Showcase Awaits For 49ers, Broncos

The San Francisco 49ers and the Denver Broncos will get something akin to a dress rehearsal for the regular season when they play a Sunday afternoon week-three preseason game.

Why San Francisco Will Win

The betting websites in America that are high on the San Francisco 49ers this season will tell you that coach Jim Harbaugh's team does not need brilliant offensive performances in order to win. That is truly one of the best and most defining aspects of the team that soared to the top of the National Football Conference and came within a handful of plays of making Super Bowl XLVI. If backup punt returner Kyle Williams hadn't committed two turnovers in the NFC Championship Game against the New York Giants last January, the 49ers – who were 6-10 in 2010 – would have gone to professional football's main event the very next season.

The leap, so close to becoming real, would have mimicked the massive jump the 49er franchise made in 1981, when it followed a 6-10 campaign in 1980 with a 13-3 season and a trip to Super Bowl XVI, where the Niners and head coach Bill Walsh defeated the Cincinnati Bengals. Yes, the 49ers fell just short of the promised land last year, but their rapid evolution as a team was and is undeniable.

The work turned in by Harbaugh and has staff has been beyond the organization's wildest hopes. This team is so well organized. It is committed to a relentless, rugged and physical defense. It doesn't need a prolific offense to shine, and that's why in this game against the Denver Broncos, it can win without playing at a particularly high level. Denver's offense is still finding itself, with quarterback Peyton Manning cautiously navigating the preseason and not wanting to overextend himself. As long as the 49ers don't get torched in the first half by Peyton, they should be able to overpower Denver in the second half with their imposing strength near the line of scrimmage.

Why Denver Will Win

When the Denver Broncos signed Peyton Manning, they engaged in a game of all-in, win-or-die online poker, plain and simple. While it's true that Peyton won't be under extreme pressure to perform until the regular season begins, it has to be said that this preseason contest will feel more like a regular season game than others. Kickoff time is 4 p.m. Eastern, roughly the same time for a regular-season afternoon-game kickoff. The FOX television network, one of the NFL's two main broadcast network carriers (alongside CBS), will be covering the action from Colorado, meaning that Manning will inhabit an unusually large spotlight for a preseason outing. This isn't a game played on a sleepy Friday night; there will be more electricity than usual in Denver, and that's saying something. The Broncos have one of the more enthusiastic crowds in the NFL, and Manning could very well ride the adrenaline to a successful performance.

Who Will Win

The sense here is that Manning, playing on a Sunday afternoon on national television, will embrace this moment with more urgency, even though he's a veteran in his mid-30s who should generally pace himself. This is not an entirely normal preseason situation. It will work to Denver's benefit.
