49ers vs. Giants Betting Preview
NFL Week 2 featured an ugly game against the Chicago Bears where the Giants lost their do-it-all, star running back Saquon Barkley to a torn ACL. This is such a letdown for the Giants who were counting on him to be their workhorse and leader on offense. The 49ers were blasted by the injury as well. Nick Bosa, Soloman Thomas, Raheem Mostert, and Telvin Coleman all went down with multi-week injuries.
This is no coincidence, the 49ers played the Jets at Metlife when those injuries occurred. Prior to the game, 49ers players said that the turf was not safe to be played on. Now they go back to the same stadium, to play a game on the same field that took their best player away in Nick Bosa for the season. Expect this to be a serious headline that gains more traction before the game on Sunday.

Implied Winning Probability
It is important to understand what implied winning probability is. The implied winning probability is the percentage chance that a team has to win a game. With the odds that are mentioned above from the DraftKings Sportsbook, the 49ers have a 66.09% chance to win the game as road favorites.
Furthermore, the Giants are +165, this would give them implied odds of 37.4% chance to win the game at home. The Giants recently signed Devonte Freeman to replace Saquon Barkley. It is unclear if they will have him prepared for the game. However, it is important to note that he must pass several COVID-19 tests before being cleared for play. His active/inactive status is something to keep in mind as we get closer to game time.
By The Numbers
The Giants just lost their best player at the very beginning of the game against the Bears. It is frustrating to see because we had the over in the week 2 game, losing Barkley certainty did not help those chances.
Conversely, the 49ers just lost their best two defensive linemen in Nick Bosa and Soloman Thomas. The total over/under appears to be a little fishy but 20.5 is way too high for the first half. The Giants have scored most of their points in the 4th quarter of games as have the 49ers.
However, the Giants are averaging 5 points per first half in their games this year. Small sample size but the loss of Barkley surely does not help their cause. Furthermore, quarterback Jimmy Garrapollo is highly questionable and the top 2 running backs on the 49ers are out with injuries. This one will be tough to watch with both teams missing weapons.
DraftKings Best Bet: Under 20.5 points first half -118
49ers vs. Giants Prop Bets
All odds are presented by the DraftKings Sportsbook.
Darius Slayton To Score A Touchdown +240
Sterling Shepard has been placed on short-term IR and will be inactive for Sunday’s game. Darius Slayton is clearly Daniel Jones’ favorite target and Richard Sherman is out with an injury.
Jordan Reed To Score A Touchdown +190
George Kittle is out. Input Jordan Reed who immediately jumps in and scores two touchdowns as if he’s been there for years. The 49ers are missing most of its weapons so Reed will be fed the ball constantly.
