10/09/2012 : New York Giants vs. San Francisco 49ers
Both teams are currently in second place in their respective divisions. It will be a game of back and forth offense and the 49ers defense tries to handle the Giants offense led by Eli Manning and Victor Cruz. Both teams have been averaging over 400 yards per game, and last week was a blow out win for both as well so this week has the potential to be a high scoring affair.
The San Francisco defense has been great this year only allowing 13 points per game on average. Offensively the 49ers running game has been awesome as Frank Gore leads the team in rushing with 432 yards for four touchdowns. Michael Crabtree had a great game last week and is leading the team in receiving with 311 yards. Where San Francisco can win the game is on the ground. They are averaging 195.8 yards per game, while the Giants have a struggling running game only tallying 120 yards per game.
Where the Giants lack in Running they make up for in passing. Victor Cruz has been a terror for defenses as so far this year he has 438 passing yards for five touch downs. The Giants are able to average 309 passing yards per game, while Alex Smith for the 49ers has only managed 205.4 on average.
Where the 49ers will work the ground, the Giants will play in the air, so this game should be a fun one to bet on. The defending Super Bowl Champion Giants will probably take this one according to many betting websites.
