The 49ers host the Falcons today, and Niner Noise has your latest betting odds from WynnBET, along with injury news and how to watch.

There’s feasibly no reasonable way the San Francisco 49ers should lose their Week 15 home matchup against the Atlanta Falcons.

Especially considering the Falcons, whose six wins this season haven’t exactly come against top-end competition, boast both offenses and defenses that rank among the NFL’s worst this deep into the season.

Aside from this being a potential trap game for the Niners, winners of five of their last seven, head coach Kyle Shanahan’s squad should be able to come away with a solid victory to improve to 8-6 on the year.

Provided San Francisco doesn’t make things difficult with self-inflicted wounds, perhaps the only way quarterback Matt Ryan and the Falcons can stage an upset.

Still, just looking at the betting line for this contest tells you a lot about how the 49ers should emerge with a one-sided victory.

49ers injury report vs. Falcons Week 15

The Niners are nevertheless a little nicked up ahead of Week 15, as the following players showed up on the team’s injury report versus Atlanta:

  • LB Azeez Al-Shaair (elbow): Doubtful
  • LB Dre Greenlaw (groin): OUT
  • DL Maurice Hurst (calf): OUT
  • DT D.J. Jones (knee): Questionable
  • RB Elijah Mitchell (concussion): OUT
  • S Jaquiski Tartt (glute): Questioniable
  • CB Ambry Thomas (concussion): Questionable

San Francisco could be shorthanded again at cornerback with Thomas out and Emmanuel Moseley (ankle) on injured reserve.

49ers vs. Falcons odds, spread, over/under & betting pick for Week 15

The Falcons own the league’s 26th-ranked scoring offense and 26th-ranked scoring defense, so it makes sense why the oddsmakers over at WynnBET list the Niners as such heavy favorites with a minus-9 spread, increasing a full point since betting odds first opened earlier in the week.

As long as San Francisco doesn’t let the versatile wide receiver, Cordarrelle Patterson, and rookie tight end Kyle Pitts take over the game, that spread seems accurate.

The Niners’ moneyline is currently at minus-410, whereas the Falcons are at plus-330.

The over/under is 46.0.

Barring the aforementioned self-inflicted wounds of which San Francisco is always at risk, it wouldn’t be shocking to see an outright win for Shanahan and Co. Although, at least in our prediction, Atlanta covers but still loses 27-21.
