The San Francisco 49ers will travel to face the Indianapolis Colts in Week 5, and the spread on this game opened at 2.5 points, according to our friends at Odds Shark. The line opened there, but is quickly seeing some change following the Colts 46-18 loss to the Seattle Seahawks. You can actually find the line down to a pick ‘em at a few sites.
The 49ers have stumbled to an 0-4 start out of the gate, but they are currently 3-1 against the spread. They say good teams win and great teams cover. The 49ers certainly aren’t a “great” team, but if you have been betting on them to cover, they’ve certainly been great for you.
The could see some further change if Andrew Luck makes a miraculous return at practice this week. It would not surprise me if he practiced, but it is highly unlikely he can get in enough work in such short time to be able to play this coming weekend.
On the 49ers side of the things, Reuben Foster could potentially return from his high ankle sprain. If he does, I don’t see it swinging the spread at all, but 49ers fans might grow a little more optimistic about a road win if Foster is back on the field.
For now, the line is in a bit of flux.
