San Francisco is 9-2 ATS in their last 11 games against the NFC and 15-4 ATS in their last 19 Monday games. The under is 13-4 in San Francisco’s last 17 games. Arizona is 2-9 ATS in their last 11 Monday games and 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games against the NFC West. The over is 4-0 in Arizona’s last 4 games. San Francisco is 1-7-1 ATS in these two team's last 9 head-to-head meetings.
Arizona comes into this game with questions surrounding their quarterback, with Kyler Murray questionable to play. Murray missed last week’s game, but Arizona was able to come away with the win. San Francisco has looked very good in their last two weeks and should have no issues in this game if Murray is out. It looks like Murray is trending closer to being out than playing, so I am going to take San Francisco here.
