49ers vs. Cardinals Line Just -3.5 Week 14 2011 – Free Pick

The 49ers vs. Cardinals line was coming in at -3.5 in favor of San Francisco.  This is a 49ers team that has gone 5-0 Against The Spread versus Arizona over the past three season.  This is a 49ers team that is 10-1 ATS this season.  This is a 49ers team that is facing an Arizona team that is 3-14 ATS in home games after 2 or more consecutive wins since 1992.  Bet this game online at Bookmaker.eu – serving the sports betting public since 1985. 

Are there injuries?  Linebacker Patrick Willis may potentially be out after injuring his right hamstring.  Willis ranks second on the team with 93 tackles and has helped anchor a top-ranked 49ers run defense that is allowing 71.8 yards per game.

The 49ers are two games behind undefeated Green Bay for the conference's top seed and one ahead of New Orleans for the NFC's other first-round bye. San Francisco hasn't earned one since 1997.

San Francisco has not only beaten Arizona in recent years, they have destroyed them.  The last four games were won by 15 points or more. 

Oddsmakers have considered Arizona’s performance over their last five games.  They are performing quite well and under the radar, having won 4 of their last 5.  Two of those games, however, were against St. Louis, another was against Philadelphia (albeit on the road).  Last week’s win against Dallas certainly has caught the attention of the oddsmakers but, in the end, history suggests San Francisco will continue to have its way with Arizona.  The Cardinals one loss over this five game stretch was against the 49ers, by 17 points. 

It’s just too hard to see San Francisco not being able to cover the -3.5 line.  Gambling911.com likes the 49ers at -3.5 as our pick for this game.
