GAME OF THE WEEK (NFL): MIKE'S TOP RATED WEEK 14 SIDE
San Francisco vs. New Orleans,
12/08/2019 13:00 EDT,
Score: 48 - 46
Point Spread: -2½/-107 New Orleans
The San Francisco 49ers dropped a 20-17 decision at Baltimore last week. They've played a tough schedule in recent weeks and are just 2-2 SU over their last four games.
I think they're in for another loss here against a New Orleans Saints team that has averaged over 30 ppg through a three-game winning streak since putting up just nine points in a shocking double-digit home loss to Atlanta.
We can also note that the Saints will have a decent rest advantage after coasting to a 26-17 win over Atlanta on Thanksgiving Thursday last time out while the Niners spent a lot of energy battling Baltimore on Sunday.
The Saints clinched a playoff spot last week, but I think they'll keep pushing the pedal to the metal to give themselves a chance to earn home-field advantage throughout the playoffs, which could be huge considering the Saints advantage in the Superdome.
10* play on New Orleans Saints.
