Dare we lay 16.5 with the 49ers in this game? Of course we will! When these two teams met in the desert in October when QB John Skelton calling the shots, the 49ers won 24-3. Now, we have seen Arizona go through both Skelton and QB Ryan Lindley, and the tide turns over to QB Brian Hoyer for his first career start. Arizona’s offense just hasn’t been able to get out of its own way for the most part, and there is no reason to think that Hoyer is going to be able to do any better on the road in a game that means oh so much to the 49ers. San Francisco has to have this game if it wants to have a chance at the No. 2 seed in the NFC, and more importantly if it wants to win the NFC West and avoid having to go on the road in the first round of the playoffs. The defense allowed 76 points over the course of the last two games, and that just isn’t going to continue when push comes to shove. Go with the 49ers and lay the points for sure in a game that should never be close.
Cardinals @ 49ers Pick: San Francisco 49ers -16.5
