San Francisco 49ers vs. Minnesota Vikings Odds

San Francisco 49ers vs. Minnesota Vikings odds were coming in at -6 ½ at betED.comThe line opened at -8 and has dropped to -6 ½, quite obvioiusly due to some heavy early action on the 49ers.  The spread action is even despite past trends that suggest the Vikings should have a field day with San Francisco.

But alas this is a 49ers team that has come out swinging against what appear to be two decent teams (the Cardinals and Seahawks).  Now San Francisco is 2-0, as is Minnesota for that matter.

The Vikings beat San Francisco in 2007 by 20 points, on the road no less.  They have won 4 of the last 5 games in this series, all of those being blowouts.

Some San Francisco 49ers vs. Minnesota Vikings odds trends to consider:

San Francisco is 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games after allowing less than 90 yards rushing in their previous game.

The  49ers are 1-7 ATS in their last 8 games after accumulating less than 150 yards passing in their previous game.

The Vikings are 3-10 ATS in their last 13 games following a S.U. win.

The Vikings are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games after allowing less than 15 points in their previous game.

The Vikings have long been a run-stuffing defense and that is no different this year as they have yet to allow a rushing touchdown this season. If Minnesota can stop Niners RB Frank Gore that could force QB Shaun Hill to win the game. Hill has been solid this year, but he has yet to face a pass rush as good as the Vikings', which ranks third in the NFL with seven sacks.

Shaun Hill is now 9-3 as a starter in San Francisco. 

Minnesota has allowed over 100 rushing yards per game this season, but they are an elite unit and that number is likely to come down to under 85 by the end of the season.
