The 49ers opened up as 15-point favorites. Then, Jimmy Garoppolo’s injury occurred. The spread got as low as 12 before going back up to 13 Saturday. The total on the game hasn’t changed enough to warrant a conversation.
It isn’t easy to project what happens since we don’t know what to expect from Lance. Despite this being his second start, the pieces around him should do the heavy-lifting. The Niners' offense should roll, while Houston comes back down to earth after last week. San Francisco 28, Houston 13.
