Monday Night Football Double header

Well we missed the early kick off in terms of picks so I guess that just means we have to double up in the late slate. We have the Football Team going against the Steelers as you are reading this. I expect this game to be low scoring. I would have taken the under here if I got the pick in on time. Now looking toward the late game we have the Bills going up against the 49ers. The Bills needing a win to stay 1 game ahead of the Dolphins in the division and the 49ers needing a win to keep pace in the playoff race. Despite all that has happened to the 49ers this year they are still just a half game back of the final wild card spot. The Bills are near the worst in the league in terms of defending the run giving up 4.7 yards per carry. The 49ers have been surprisingly average with their rushing attack this year and I think a big part of that can be attributed to all the time Kittle has missed. Kittle is the best blocking tight end in football and his absence has hurt the 49ers greatly. The Bills have been worse than average when running the ball, having the 6th least rushing yards in the NFL. This is shockingly bad for a team that has a quarterback who 311 yards on his own. What they lack in the run game they more than make up for through the air. With the Bills ability to move the ball through the air and the total sitting at just 47.5 I love the over here. Neither defense has been great this year after both being near the top a year ago, and I think the Bills put up at least 30 on their own so I expect the 49ers to make up the difference. My other pick I like is BUFF +1.5. I mean what are we doing here with that line. The 49ers are starting Nick Mullens at quarterback, he is good for a minimum of 2 turnovers.

Picks: Over 47.5, Buff +1.5
