Why Bet on the San Francisco 49ers?
The side did well against the Rams last weekend, grabbing a 31-10 victory against the No 2. NFC West team. They completed an unanswered 14-point run in the first quarter and kept the 20-point lead until the final quarter. The 49ers produced 335 total yards by the end of the game. Overall, this brings the team’s yards per game record to 362.2 (13th).
We saw the team improve their rushing plays. The 49ers record 117.9 rushing yards (13th) per game. As for their passing game, the team averages 244.3 passing yards (13th) in nine games.
Previewing the defense, the visitors allow 23.6 points (17th) per game. They don’t do particularly well when it comes to defending rushing play. The team records 122.8 opponent rushing yards (23rd) per game. However, they hold opponents to 208.7 passing yards (sixth) per game. This is a problem for a Jaguars team that maintains mediocre passing yards per game record.
Running back Elijah Mitchell (finger) and wide receiver Deebo Samuel (knee) are on the team’s questionable list this Sunday. If the two fail to recover in time, Jeff Wilson Jr. and Trent Sherfield covers the starting positions.
Why Bet on the Jacksonville Jaguars?
The Jaguars have to start winning games if they want a shot at a postseason appearance. They secured their first two wins of the season in four games, which shows improvement. But despite that, the team has to recuperate from a 23-17 loss in Week 10.
The team holds one of the worst points per game records in the league. The Jaguars average just 16.6 points (31st) per game. They are yet to finish a game with 30 points or more this season. Offensively, they average 332.7 total yards (23rd), 119.0 rushing yards (11th), and 213.7 passing yards (24th) per game. If they want a shot at scoring in this game, head coach Urban Meyer needs to exploit the 49ers’ vulnerable rushing defense.
The Jaguars’ defense also has its struggles. The team averages 25.8 opponent points (27th) and 260.4 opponent passing yards (25th) per game. They do a little better dealing with rushing plays. The Jaguars average 106.0 opponent rushing yards (11th) per game.
Running back James Robinson is dealing with a heel injury. The starter might miss the game, along with right inside linebacker Myles Jack who is afflicted with a knee injury.
