NFL oddsThe Broncos vs 49ers odds will be the last game of the night on Friday. Online betting cappers know that there might be more effort than usual in this preseason game. Broncos head coach Josh McDaniels has a lot to prove in his first game action while 49ers head coach Mike Singletary rarely gives his team a playoff.

Broncos vs 49ers odds: 49ers -3

  • WHO: Denver Broncos @ San Francisco 49ers
  • WHAT: NFL betting
  • WHEN: Friday, August 14 – 10:00 PM ET
  • WHERE: Candlestick Park
  • PICK: Broncos +3

Broncos vs 49ers odds maker breakdown: Offense

The Broncos will get their first taste of what life without Jay Cutler is like. The good news for NFL betting sharps backing the Broncos: veteran quarterbacks Kyle Orton and Chris Simms should see ample time. The Broncos also have a very deep backfield with Knowshon Moreno, LaMont Jordan, Correll Buckhalter, Ryan Torrain and Darius Walker.

For the 49ers, their offense is not nearly as deep. They’ll also have their Inept Quarterback Competition on display as Alex Smith and Shaun Hill continue to audition. The 49ers don’t have as much offense talent or depth, so the Broncos get the edge here.

Betting Edge: Broncos

Broncos vs 49ers odds maker breakdown: Defense

The Broncos defense was horrible last year and simply can’t be any worse – even with the transition to the 3-4. They are lacking the right personnel almost everywhere so even the crummy 49ers offense might be able to score at will.

The 49ers defense is – at the very least – competent. It is a veteran unit but coach Singletary has created a lot of competition, which means the backups should be very hungry. The 49ers have the clear edge on this side of the ball

Betting Edge: 49ers

Broncos vs 49ers odds maker breakdown: Special Teams

The 49ers are status quo on special teams with Andy Lee and Joe Nedney back, while the Broncos are the same with Matt Prater and Brett Kern. The slight edge in returns goes to Denver, who employs the dangerous Eddie Royal.

Betting Edge: Broncos

Broncos vs 49ers odds maker breakdown: Notable Injuries

Both teams will be short key defensive players as the Broncos will be without safety Brian Dawkins, who is out with a hand injury, while the 49ers are without Walt Harris, who is out for the season.

Betting Edge: Even

Broncos vs 49ers betting breakdown: Outlook and Pick

This game looks about even all the way around. Both teams should be putting in an effort to win it, both teams have lots of competition on their roster and while Denver has the better offense, the 49ers have the better defense. The sportsbook is giving three points to Denver because they are on the road and I’ll take it in an otherwise close battle.

STAN’S PICK: Broncos +3
