49ers listed as 2-pt favorite vs. Giants on look-ahead line prior to TNF

New, comments

The line may take time to open while the 49ers quarterback decision is sorted out.

The San Francisco 49ers and New York Giants square off in a little more than a week’s time on Monday Night Football. Both teams will coming into the game with plenty of rest. The Giants have a bye this week, while the 49ers wrapped up their Week 9 on Thursday with a 34-3 win over the Oakland Raiders.

Prior to Thursday’s game, the Westgate SuperBook released a lookahead line for the Week 10 49ers-Giants matchup. The lookahead line provides a glimpse at where sportsbooks are looking before they release official lines Sunday night. For 49ers-Giants, the Westgate installed the 49ers as two-point favorites.

The official line might actually be delayed at some sportsbooks because of the 49ers quarterback situation. Nick Mullens had a dominant performance against the Raiders, and head coach Kyle Shanahan has not announced his decision on who will start in Week 10. Shanahan said on Friday that he would wait to announce the starter after the team returned from four days off, so we likely won’t know the answer until Tuesday. Ian Rapoport reported Sunday morning that it would be “major surprise” if it was not Mullens.

When the line does open, if Mullens is starting, it will be interesting to see how far the line swings, and how gamblers perceive the 49ers versus an awful Giants squad.
