The day is finally here. After a week of deer antler spray and questions about gay teammates... It's actually time to play some football.
The 49ers opened as favorites and have been at -3.5 for most of the week. However, late week sentiment in their favor has pushed the line to -4. The over/under on the games is 47.5.
Overall, the consensus pick in terms of money has been the Ravens, which is where 53% of the bets have come in. The AccuScore simulator is no help in this one as after 10,000 simulations it averaged out to a 22-22 tie. However, the simulator does favor Baltimore, giving them 51.1% chance of winning.
Number Fire did a little better favoring the Niners 24.7-22.2.
San Fran was 11-7 against the spread this year, while the Ravens were 9-9-1. Over the last 10 games however, the Ravens are 5-4-1 and the Niners are 6-4.
As for the over/under, the simulators say take under. They give a 53.6% of the score coming in under 47.5.
So that's all the info... who ya got? I'm taking the 49ers 27-17.
