Are the 49ers a Good Teaser-Wheel Pick?

NFL Dec 24, 2022

We like the San Francisco 49ers teased down from -6.5 to a half point, which means they just need to beat the Washington Commanders today at home.  We are combining the 49ers with other teams that cross key numbers, making the "teaser wheel" very attractive.



Washington at San Francisco
Line: 49ers -6.5
O/U: 37

Game Analysis:

We're using San Francisco at our anchor team in four teasers this week.  We are adding CHI, NOR, SEA, and TB to the betting basket.

The 49ers look like an absolute beast right now, hitting on all cylinders. This is especially true for the 49ers’ #1 ranked defense, which can shut down any opponent and is allowing a league-low 15 PPG.

San Francisco also appears to have found the spark of leadership in the huddle with the surprising play of QB Brock Purdy. He doesn’t need to win games all by himself, given he has such a talented supporting cast. Yet, Purdy looks as good as any veteran starter after just three NFL starts.

We're not quite buying 49ers Super Bowl tickets just yet, but Purdy is playing like a step up from the previous 1-2 QBs (both out for the season with injuries).

Line Analysis:

Let’s add the 49ers (10-4 this season) have both won and covered the Spread in 14 of their last 19 games overall. San Francisco has a 9-5 record ATS compared to Washington’s 7-6-1 ATS mark. The 49ers have also covered the spread in five straight games.

San Francisco is an even stronger bet as a home favorite, a role they have succeeded in with a 5-1 ATS record. Plus, they have a strong 6-3 ATS record following a win this season.

Teasing one of the league’s best teams on a roll, at home, down to -1 seems like a wager we can make with confidence.

As for Washington, I’m not sure what their mental state will be coming off a disappointing loss to NYG at home, and now flying across the country to play a much tougher foe.

Credit to the Commanders for a surprisingly positive season, and they’ll probably make the playoffs. But they just looked outclassed here. Maybe Washington keeps this close, which is why we’ll do the Wong teaser with the number for added insurance.

The Picks:

Teaser: San Francisco -.5 / Chicago +14.5
Teaser: San Francisco -.5 / New Orleans +9
Teaser: San Francisco -.5 / Seattle +16
Teaser: San Francisco -.5 / Tampa Bay -1.5
