How to Bet 49ers vs Buccaneers NFL Week 12 Spread

Written by on November 21, 2018

While some teams in the NFL gear up for the playoff push set to come in the next few weeks, others are already starting to look ahead to next season. From this point forward, those teams will be evaluating their current roster and deciding where they need the most help. Some teams have it a little easier than others, as injuries have played a major part in a poor season for some teams. The San Francisco 49ers can certainly count themselves part of the walking wounded crowd, as they have been hit especially hard this season.

The same cannot be said for their opponents this weekend, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, as their poor showing has been more about not playing well than being understaffed. The biggest problem for the Bucs has been at the QB spot, where we can probably expect to see some changes in the offseason. This is a bit of a meaningless game in the grand scheme of things, but one that is still worth wagering on. The Buccaneers are in as a 3 ½ point favorite, with the point total set at 54 ½.

Why bet on the San Francisco 49ers?

With the loss of Jimmy Garoppolo for the season, the 49ers were put in the tough position of trying to find someone to fill the QB role. Over the past two games, it has been Nick Mullens who has taken the reins and done an adequate job. He was stellar in his debut against Oakland, but he came back down to earth a little in a loss to the Giants, but he still has 4 TD passes versus 2 INT’s in his 2 appearances.

He could post some decent numbers this weekend against a Tampa defense that has been about as porous as it gets, but he will also get some help from Breida and the run game. The 49ers are just 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games and are winless in 5 games on the road this season, a stat that does not inspire a whole lot of confidence.

Why bet on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers?

The Buccaneers have a real problem at the QB position, as they are just not getting consistent work out of either of their guys. When Jameis Winston struggled in the early part of the season, Ryan Fitzpatrick came in and won the starting job, but he has now lost it again, with Winston winning it back after a solid relief effort in a losing effort the last time out.

49ers vs Buccaneers should be a close one.

Both QB’s have turned the ball over far too often, mostly because the defense has put them in a hole early and forced them into playing a game of catch-up. This is a team that can score, though, so look for them to put up some points this weekend. The Bucs are just 1-6-1 ATS in their last 8 games, but they have gone 4-2 ATS in their last 6 home games against the 49ers.
