Mims' Monday Night Football Picks: 49ers vs Cardinals, Christian McCaffrey, Robbie Gould props, over/under
The Monday Night Football Game has the San Francisco 49ers against the Arizona Cardinals. The Niners are second in the NFC West at 5-4 and the Cardinals are third in the division at 4-6. The Niners are favored by 8.5 and the total is 43. The money line is -385 for San Francisco and +300 for Arizona. The Cardinals are the home team.
Head Coach Match Up: Niners Head Coach Kyle Shanahan over Cardinals Head Coach Kliff Kingsbury.
Player Props: Niners Running Back Christian McCaffrey over 66.5 rushing yardage. This bet is priced at +106. McCaffrey has gone over the projected number every other game. He went under last week with only 38 rushing yards. Take him over. Robbie Gould over 1.5 total made field goals. The price is -129. Gould has made 13 of 16 fields goals this season with 3 games of 2 or more. Take him over.
The Consensus: 64% of the money is being wagered on Arizona. 60% of the action is on over.
The Selection: The Niners have won two straight and 3 of their last 5. The Cardinals have won 2 of their last 5. Arizona has listed Quarterback Kyler Murray as questionable so expect Colt McCoy to start. McCoy played well in a 27-17 win over the Los Angeles Rams last week. The Niners need the game to stay within a game of the Seattle Seahawks for the division lead. Take the Niners money line and the under.
