Football betting on the game between the New England Patriots and San Francisco 49ers is not nearly as one-sided as it would have been last year.
The Patriots don’t have Tom Brady this season and their invincibility is gone while the 49ers have J.T. O’Sullivan and an offense that can impact football betting lines. The Patriots still are getting respect in NFL odds Week 5 numbers from gamblers that bet on football but they are not a dominating favorite.
Football betting information shows that New England and San Francisco rarely play. They did meet in 2005 but they have only played eight times in the past 28 years. The Patriots have won the last two games after losing the previous six according to football betting stats. The Patriots won in 2005 at home against San Francisco by a score of 21-7. The last four meetings between the two teams have gone under the football betting total.
Normally you could look at overall football betting stats and trends and get a good idea of what might happen in this game but the Patriots are a different team without Brady and football betting trends that supported New England don’t apply nearly as much. The same problem confronts gamblers that bet on football as they look at San Francisco. The 49ers look like a different team with Mike Martz as offensive coordinator and O’Sullivan at quarterback. That could make football betting trends that point against San Francisco of less importance. The 49ers could get a serious look from gamblers in this matchup on Sunday.
The total could be the way to look for gamblers that bet on football. With a backup quarterback in New England and a San Francisco offense that likes to run the ball with Frank Gore, the under could be worth a look in football betting. It also helps that the 49ers have been a solid under team at home according to football betting stats. They are almost 60% to the under at home the past few years according to football betting numbers.
