I'm not a fan of either here, but come on with some of these absurd statements. The 49ers are 3-1 SU and 3-1 ATS on the road this year. And that sucks? Then I assume the Saints really suck at home as they have a worse record at 3-2 SU and ATS than the 49ers do on the road.
And also, people keep saying the Saints defense is playing better lately. In the last 3 games they are still giving up an average of 300+ yards passing and 450+ total. And that's good? Sure the points scored went down but come on, Oakland and Philly are getting ripped these days.
And now they face a new QB who just ripped the Bears tough secondary and pass rush for 243 yards and 2 TDs...and he's very mobile. The Saints defense will surrender points and yards easily all day. The balance of the 49ers now is way too much for a defense like that.
On the other hand, I do think the Saints will get there points, but in these types of games where you know both teams will score a good amount, almost always go with the stronger defense, especially if it is remarkably stronger..which SF is on defense.
Superdome, needing a win, etc. Once the 49ers realize they are in a dog fight, they will respond and they are a better all-around football team. BTW, Harbaugh lives for intense, emotional games, there's no way his team won't be ready to play this one.
SF wins a close one, but they win and cover. Over looks good too.
