Giants 49ers Pick, SF easy cover on TNF

The 49ers have looked dominant but not as dominant as the Giants were in the second half of Week 2. The problem with handicapping the Week 3 Thursday Nighter is that the Giants were outscored 60-0 in the first six quarters of the season so are they on a roll or just rallying against a terrible Cardinals team?

A Giants 49ers pick here depends on how you view New York and whether 10.5 points is a gift from oddsmakers or a trap.

San Francisco has won 13 straight as favorites and have been dominant against the spread at home (13-2 ATS) and in conference games (17-4 ATS).

Why the Giants can cover the spread

Man, did the Giants look great after halftime last week? They are 8-3 ATS on the road lately and maybe that second half kick-started their season in such a way that they are a lock to cover double digits here in SF.

But what about the three halves of play before that? Daniel Jones will be in tough vs the 49ers defense and they need to get some production from the running back position minus Saquon Barkley. But they have talented WRs and if Jones can get the ball out fast, they can be competitive here.

SF has this game and a cupcake (Arizona) next week. Will they ease up here?

Why the 49ers can cover the spread

Man, did the Giants look terrible before halftime last week? The G-Men had been outscored 60-0 in three halves of football. And no Barkley is out with an ankle sprain.

San Francisco has tended to sag in Week 3 in recent years (2-9 ATS past 11 seasons) but they are already eyeing a 4-0 start before a big Week 5 match with the Cowboys. They are far superior on both sides of the ball and they will easily cover here if they are motivated to do so.

Giants 49ers Pick

That second half vs the Cardinals sure seems like Fool’s Gold. If the Giants are half as bad as they looked before that second-half rally, this game should be a beatdown where 10.5 points is a gift. We play SF.
