Let’s hope for no surprises today. The 49ers are heavy favorites against the Bears in their season-opener. We’ll see if tight end George Kittle plays or not as he deals with a groin injury.
Per Eric Branch of The San Francisco Chronicle, Kittle isn’t expected to dress. Kittle’s absence will be felt, but that shouldn’t be enough to hold down what many expect to be a potent offense. Plus, the Bears shouldn’t reach more than 14 points.

This might be the lowest total in a game we see all year. It’ll take time for the books to adjust since they have nothing besides last year’s two underwhelming starts as a reference. I’d cautiously project this game to go under the total, with the score something like 49ers 23, Bears 14.
