Check out our favorite “under the radar” bet in tonight’s game:

This Monday, there will be a game between two NFC bottom feeders as the New York Giants travel to Levi’s Stadium to take on the San Francisco 49ers. Both teams are coming into this game with seven losses as they are looking for a victory to potentially salvage their respective seasons. The San Fransisco 49ers are coming off of a dominating 34-3 win against the Oakland Raiders while the New York Giants are coming into this game off of a bye week.

49ers Shine With New Starting Quarterback

Prior to last week’s game against the Raiders, the 49ers were in the midst of a six-game losing streak. The team was headed nowhere quickly and its top two quarterbacks had gotten injured. The Raiders were expected to win the game with relative ease as a result. However, the 49ers played their best game of the season and demolished the Raiders at home. The team ended up winning by 31 points as it now hopes to have its first winning streak of the season this Monday night when it takes on the New York Giants.

After an injury to quarterback C.J. Beathard, the 49ers decided to start Nick Mullens last Thursday against the Raiders. It was a risky move but it definitely paid off as Mullens played extremely well and carried San Francisco to a much-needed win. Mullens threw for 262 passing yards and three touchdowns while also completing 72.7% of his passes. Whether it was due to Mullens or the ineptitude of the Raiders’ defense remains to be seen but it definitely appears that he will provide a crucial spark to San Francisco’s offense moving forward.

San Francisco’s offense currently ranks 18th in the NFL in points per game with 22.8 and is also ranked 25th with 219.9 passing yards per game. However, the team does average 134.7 rushing yards per game which is the fourth-most in the league.

Giants Look To Rally After Bye Week

The Giants were expected to compete for a playoff spot in the NFC East when the season began. Although the rest of the NFC East has been underwhelming to say the least, so have the Giants. The team is now 1-7 and have virtually no chance of making the playoffs this season.

However, one bright spot for the team has been rookie running back Saquon Barkley. This season, Barkley already has over 1,000 combined rushing and receiving yards and is definitely the clear-cut favorite to win the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year. Barkley is averaging 4.7 yards per carry and is impressively doing it with one of the worst offensive lines in football. However, the team continues to lose despite Barkley’s best efforts.

The reason for the team’s struggles this season is due to its woeful passing attack. The team’s offense is led by quarterback Eli Manning who has been atrocious this season. So far this season, Manning has thrown for eight touchdowns and six interceptions while getting sacks a whopping 31 times which is the third-most in the league. The Giants briefly benched Manning for one game last season and the team’s fans are getting extremely restless. Manning delivered two championships to this franchise but it appears that the fans are ready for a new face under center. However, until the front office agrees, Manning is still gonna be the man.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

Although the 49ers looked great last week, it was against Oakland so I think that it is a bit of an overreaction. The Giants are coming into this game off of a bye which means that the team had an extra week to gameplan for Mullens which should make a difference. The Giants have a decent defense and better offensive weapons. However, the team’s offensive line is absolutely terrible and Eli Manning should have probably retired already. The Giants should cover the spread but I cannot express too much confidence when it comes to backing either of these below average teams.

Prediction: Giants +3

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

With both of these teams struggling offensively throughout the course of the season, I have to lean towards the under in this contest. Both of these teams have terrible offensive lines so both quarterbacks should have very little time to throw due to the opposing pass rushes. However, Mullens is still a wild card and one does not really know if last week’s performance was a fluke or if he is actually that talented. For that reason, I will lean towards the under but with minimal confidence.

Prediction: Under 43.5
