Falcons vs 49ers Odds - Falcons will take advantage of Gore-less 49ers

betting on footballThe Falcons vs 49ers odds will pit two surprising NFC contenders against each other. Given how both teams finished up last year, it’s been really impressive to see that both teams have improved. Online betting cappers should know that the Falcons are off a bye week and the 49ers are without Frank Gore. That should pave the wave to a Falcons victory.

Falcons vs 49ers odds: 49ers -2.5

  • WHAT: NFL betting
  • WHEN: Sunday, October 11th – 4:15 PM ET
  • WHERE: Candlestick Park – San Francisco, CA
  • KEY STAT: 49-63 ATS versus teams with a winning record since 1992
  • PICK: Falcons +2.5, Under 41.5

Falcons vs 49ers odds maker breakdown: The Storyline
The Falcons put their tails between their legs after a humbling loss in New England and rested during their bye week, trying to correct their flaws. They’ve been really impressive this year overall, but this game will be a measuring stick. With a win, they’ll be considered a serious playoff team. With a loss, they are still just the same team from last year: a playoff contender but not much more than that.

Sportsbook odds makers aren’t sure what to make of San Francisco. They aren’t pretty, but all they do is win. While everyone talks about the Bengals’ last-second fluky loss, people fail to mention that the 49ers could be 4-0 had it not been for their last-second fluky loss.

Betting Edge: Even

Falcons vs 49ers odds maker breakdown: Offense
The Falcons offense is going to be the best unit on the field and possibly the best unit the 49ers have faced this year. They are multifaceted with Matt Ryan, Roddy White, Tony Gonzalez and Michael Turner - and more importantly, they are rested and ready to go. They underachieved in New England two weeks ago and will prove that they are better than that.

NFL betting fans should be concerned with the 49ers offense. Although they won 35-0 last week over St. Louis, the 49ers had three touchdowns handed to them by St. Louis. The 49ers had just over 200 yards of offense in the game and their running game was nonexistent. Unless they can find a way to churn out more rushing yards this week, they might again have to rely on their defense to score.

Betting Edge: Falcons

Falcons vs 49ers odds maker breakdown: Defense
The Falcons defense has been up-and-down this season and was reexamined in the bye week. At times, the Falcons can be a decent unit - most notably, when end John Abraham is wreaking havoc. At other times, this is a pedestrian unit. Look for this unit to play with a little more fire after getting exposed by the Patriots two weeks ago.

The 49ers defense is quickly establishing itself as one of the better units in the NFL. They’ve been handed some gimmes this year, such as playing against Seattle without Matt Hasselbeck, a listless Arizona Cardinals team and the handicapped offense, who played without their starting quarterback and wide receiver. They are a confident group right now and are always tough to beat at home, but this week will be a litmus test.

Betting Edge: 49ers

Falcons vs 49ers odds maker breakdown: Notable Injuries
The 49ers will be without running back Frank Gore for this game, which really limits their offense. He could be the team MVP, and until he’s back, it’s tough to trust the 49ers as a favorite.

Betting Edge: Falcons

Falcons vs 49ers odds for total: 41.5
The 49ers offense is going to be limited without Gore in the lineup, while their own defense will once again have to carry them. Those two factors point to this being a low-scoring contest. The Falcons are an indoor team heading outdoors, which means their offense may struggle a little bit out of the gates.

Pick: Under 41.5

Falcons vs 49ers betting breakdown: Outlook and Pick
This is a statement game for both teams, but the 49ers are shorthanded without Gore in the lineup. They got by against the Rams last week, but the Falcons will take advantage here. The Falcons are rested and in need of a win, and they’ll get it this week.
