NFL Betting Predictions: New York Giants vs San Francisco 49ers
Championship game this weekend with the New York Giants traveling to take on the San Francisco 49ers. This game is very evenly matched on paper with home field advantage being the deciding factor in BetDSI Sportsbook current NFL Live Betting Lines displaying the 49ers as -135 favorites giving up -2 ½ points to the Giants.
At the beginning of the year who would have thought the San Francisco 49ers with a new coach, new system, and same old QB that they would be in the playoffs? Let alone in the championship game after beating the New Orleans Saints in an epic 36-32 shootout that was great fun to watch.
Quarterback Alex Smith who has taken a beating in the media in San Francisco has totally revived his career in the NFL under new coach Jim Harbaugh. He has undeniably put up the best season of his career, with last week against New Orleans his best game yet. Smith threw 299 yards, 3 touchdowns, and had a 28 yard run for another touchdown. Smith’s huge game and the niners victory would not have been possible without TE Vernon Davis putting in an amazing performance. Davis had 7 receptions for 180 yards and 2 touchdowns, and was extremely clutch in the 4th quarter.
The New York Giants have had an up and down season, with their running game not picking up through most the year, and a terrible rash of injuries. However they have been money in the bank during the playoffs and with those injuries they found a playmaker for years to come in WR Victory Cruz. Eli Manning has had a really good year and another Super Bowl victory would probably place him in the Hall of Fame in the future.
Last week against the defending champions the Green Bay Packers, Eli Manning had a great game throwing 330 yards and 3 touchdowns to 1 interception. Runningbacks Ahmad Bradshaw had 12 carries for 63 yards and catching 3 passes for another 21yds, while Brandon Jacobs rumbled in for a 14 yard touchdown. The New York Giants defense certainly came to play as they recovered 3 fumbles and also had an interception.
My Prediction: This is a game I just hate to choose either side, it pains me to say either team is going to win in this matchup. I love the way the San Francisco 49ers have been playing but also love how the New York Giants have been playing and are getting points via the spread. I’ll say the New York Giants win to make an epic superbowl grudge match with the Patriots, but my heart wants the Niners to win.
