San Francisco 49ers at Atlanta Falcons – Open: +3.5, Move: +4.5, Move: +4
The early money moved this spread an entire point, with a ton of action coming in on the road team.
According to BetDSI.com, San Francisco bets are outnumbering Atlanta wagers at a 3-to-1 pace while action on the Niners is outnumbering that on the Falcons at 2-to-1. However, there is a split developing between public money and sharp money as Sunday draws closer.
“The public affection for the Niners and their second-year QB Colin Kaepernick has created massive public betting action,” says BetDSI.com. “Sharp money backing Atlanta at +4 and +4.5 is also focused on the second-year QB, albeit more in a negative sense knowing how hard it is for a young QB to hit the road and get playoff victories.”
As for the moneyline, the majority of wagers are taking the home underdog at +185. Atlanta opened as low as +160 on the moneyline last Sunday.
Total bettors are siding with the over, pushing the number from 47 to 49. Under money started to come in and has the majority of books dealing a total of 48.5.
