It’s been a season to forget for the San Francisco 49ers, as an offseason of turmoil has culminated into a 2-6 record through eight weeks of play. Levi’s Stadium, the Niners’ new plush home, hasn’t exactly done the 49ers any favors when it comes to covering the spread. San Fran is just 3-11 ATS in their last 14 home games – a trend that won’t exactly inspire any confidence in backers of the red and gold ahead of the team’s Week 9’s clash against the Atlanta Falcons in the Golden State.
- The Falcons are 12-3 SU in their last 15 games as road favorites in November.
- The home team is 11-4 in the last 15 games in this matchup.
- The 49ers are 0-5 SU and 1-4 ATS in their last five games before the bye at home.
Atlanta (6-2 SU, 4-4 ATS) has looked considerably better under first year head coach Dan Quinn but has hit a rough patch as of late. The Falcons have failed to cover in four consecutive games after going 4-0 ATS to start the year.
Atlanta was listed as 8-point chalk in Week 8 but fell to the lowly Tampa Bay Buccaneers 23-20, meaning a date with the down and out 49ers could be just what the doctor ordered for this team to get back on track at the betting window.
