49ers-Bengals Betting Line

The 49ers-Bengals betting line was listed at -1.5 in favor of Cincinnati heading into Sunday.  Spread action was relatively balanced.  The line has moved all the way up to -3 at some books, offering a pretty good middling opportunity whereby you can bet both sides at two different books (San Francisco +3 at Bookmaker and Cincinnati -1 at Legendz)

Ryan Mercier of DonBest.com noted that both teams come into Week 3 with their own injury woes. 

This Bengals offense can run smoothly even with a couple of rookies playing key roles. They were hit with the loss of their nice slot receiver Jordan Shipley (knee injury) for the season, however.

San Francisco really needs to get running back Frank Gore going. With a healthy dose of 42 carries over the first two weeks, Gore is averaging a lackluster 2.5 yards per rush. He will get a chance against a Cincy ‘D’ that surrendered 101 yards to Broncos RB Willis McGahee.

With receivers Michael Crabtree (foot) and Braylon Edwards (knee) in question for Sunday, Gore’s performance becomes even more critical.

It’s tough to really give an edge to either defense.  The Bengals have surrendered fewer points, total yards, and passing yards than San Fran, but the Niners lead the NFL in fewest rushing yards allowed.
