Free Pick: San Francisco 8-6 at Tennessee 9-5 12/23/21

This matchup is intriguing between two teams that are in good shape for the playoffs. The 49ers are trying to get a wild card in the NFC and are currently the 6th seed. A win over the Titans would be gigantic in improving their position. Meanwhile, Tennessee has a one game lead over 2nd place Indianapolis, plus the tiebreaker. But, they are stumbling down the stretch and they need this game to end that trend. Let’s look at what Vegas thinks.


San Francisco: 23.5 Total Team Points The 49ers are averaging 26 points and 367 yards per game. In the last 6 games, they have scored over 24 points five times. So, they are playing well. Elijah Mitchell has emerged as a feature back and Deebo Samuel is a big-time receiver for Jimmy Garoppolo. The Titans defense has been playing well and they are very difficult to run on, but this 49er offense is better than most people think. I’ll take the 49ers barely UNDER 23.5 team points.

Tennessee: 20 Total Team Points The Titans haven’t scored over 20 points in any of the last four games. They are sputtering in the passing game, and Ryan Tannehill has got to start playing better. They are going up against a 49er defense that is playing pretty well.. I like Tennessee UNDER 20 team points.

OVER/UNDER: 44 Combined Team Points I’m looking at 23-20, 21-17, something in that range. I will take UNDER 44 combined points.

POINT SPREAD: San Francisco is a 3.5-point favorite The Niners are playing well winning 5 of their last 6. They have ventured to the eastern part of the country 5 times and have won all 5 games. The Dudes are split on this game.

AARON’S PICK: Tennessee +3.5

PAPA DUDES PICK: 49ers -3.5
