The San Francisco 49ers visit the Carolina Panthers in NFC Divisional betting.
In their last games the San Francisco 49ers needed a last second field goal to pull out a hard fought 23-20 road win over the Packers. The Carolina Panthers had a bye week.
These two clubs met back in Week 10 in San Francisco with the Panthers getting the 10-9 win. Defense was the name of the game with the 49ers managing a paltry 151 total yards. The Panthers offense was better, but wasn’t anything to write home about with 250 total yards.

These two teams played in Week 10 and amassed a combined total of 401 yards and 19 points. The 49ers passed for a total of 46 yards and we do think that total will increase this week. The addition of Michael Crabtree will make a difference, but we don’t expect a San Francisco team that has exceeded 215 yards through the air in only 1 of their last 5 games to exploit the Panthers. We also see no logical reason why Carolina would have an offensive explosion this week.
Here some numbers to consider. The Panthers finished No. 2 is scoring defense with 15.1 points per game allowed followed directly by the 49ers that were 3rd at 19.1 PPG. Both of these teams were in the top 4 for rushing defense, top 4 for turnover margin, top 10 for passing defense and top 10 for time of possession.
Both of these teams got here because of their defense. No reason to think that will change this week.
