Certainly, ESPN can’t be thrilled with their stink bomb Monday night matchup this week. Indeed, the Giants and 49ers are among the worst teams posted on the betting on NFL board each week. Yet gamblers will be fully engaged as always to finish in the black for the week. As a result of their poor records there isn’t much to indicate a strong case for either side. Although this may be true there is always value to be found. And in a situation like this the dog is always the first place to look. After all neither team impresses.

Giants vs. 49ers TV Coverage: ESPN
San Francisco 49ers
Supplementing this matchup is the 49ers record of 2-7 straight up and 3-6 against the spread with five games going over. Last week San Francisco scored a 34-3 home payout over the Raiders. Besides that, the 49ers have gone under the total in their last three matchups. Overall the 49ers rank 18th for total offense and 24th for points against. In like manner quarterback CJ Beathard has struggled in place of Jimmy Garoppolo. Beathard has an 81.8 rating with eight touchdowns and seven interceptions. And he remains questionable with a thumb issue.
New York Giants
New York has a Betting on NFL record of 1-7 straight up and 3-5 vs. the odds with five games going under the total. Concurrently the Giants rank 27th in the NFL for scoring offense and 22nd for points allowed. Eli Manning remains a lightning rod for fans and critics alike. Consider his quarterback rating of 90.9 with eight touchdowns and six interceptions.
Stats to Consider
Despite their terrible start the Giants have been a reliable online wagering play as a road dog. The Giants have covered seven of their last ten getting points away from home. Six of their last eight in that situation have gone under the total. Counter to that is the 49ers flood of red ink laying points at home. San Francisco has covered just one of their last 15 games as a favorite at Levi’s Stadium. Four of their last five in that role have gone over the total.
Team vs. Team
San Francisco has had the recent upper hand in their series with the Giants. In fact, the 49ers have gotten the money in their last three games with New York. Three of the last five in this matchup have also gone under the total. But at San Francisco the Giants have had the Pointspread advantage. Consider New York’s mark of four covers in their last six visits to the City by the Bay. Two of the Giants last three road tilts with the Niners have gone under the total.
Matchup to Watch
Despite their betting on NFL problems the Giants matchup well with the 49ers. As mentioned earlier the Niners are putrid home chalks. Equally important is New York’s mark in this series. Even though Manning catches heat he is still an asset in this Monday night environment.
