In sports gambling, a field goal and seven points are the two most notable round numbers. Sunday morning, the San Francisco 49ers line against the Chicago Bears dropped under a field goal to 2.5 points, according to Odds Shark.
The 49ers opened as a 4.5- or 5-point favorite earlier this week, but the line dropped significantly. The Bears ugly loss to the Philadelphia Eagles got it moving, and it picked up steam Tuesday afternoon when the 49ers announced Jimmy Garoppolo was going to start.
We’ve now seen late money move this line even further. The 49ers have a relatively healthy group, with all three players on their final injury report active for the game. Having Trent Brown, Adrian Colbert, and Ahkello Witherspoon all active bodes well. Meanwhile, the Bears will be missing a starter and depth at the safety position. The Bears defense has been solid, but the injuries bode well for Jimmy Garoppolo.
