The San Francisco 49ers is one of the best teams in the National Football League and the Jacksonville Jaguars are not. In fact the Jaguars could end up being one of the worst teams to ever play in the league as they continue to lose and lose big. Some football bettors thought the Jaguars were in a good spot last week hosting the San Diego Chargers who had to travel across the country on a short week, but the Jags continued to disappoint.

The Jags looked awful again when playing the Chargers. Philip Rivers completed his first 14 passes, picking apart Jacksonville's defense with short throws and clock-eating drives. He finished 22 of 26. Mathews topped the century mark for the second consecutive week.
The 49ers on the other hand looked great. Frank Gore had multiple rushing touchdowns in a game for the first time since Week 17, 2009 against the Rams. Colin Kaepernick had a 99.0 Total QBR against the Titans Sunday, the best by any quarterback in a game this season. These two weapons will be excited to tear about the Jaguars and should be leading by double digits early in this game as they head towards a blowout.
The latest football betting trends for this game indicates just how bad this team has become and how the 49ers should feast on this squad. San Francisco is 4-1 straight up in its last 5 games and they are playing as well as ever. Jacksonville is 1-7 against the spread (ATS) in its last 8 games and it shows just how bad they are. This team loses and loses big and have yet to win a game this season. The total has gone over in 11 of San Francisco's last 14 games and they may be able to get the over on their own merit, because it should be mentioned that the Jaguars have yet to score a touchdown at home this season.
