The 49ers square off against their old Bay Area rivals, the Raiders, in a New Year’s Day game. Niner Noise has all the game-time info you’ll want to know.
Week 17 will mark the final road game of the regular season for the San Francisco 49ers, and they’ll visit an old neighbor this go-around in the Las Vegas Raiders, the first time the Niners have traveled to Nevada to take on the former Oakland AFC squad.
At 6-9, the Raiders are not only just playing the spoiler role, but they’re also looking to the future, as head coach Josh McDaniels announced earlier this week that he’d sit veteran quarterback Derek Carr in favor of the younger backup, Jarrett Stidham.
What this means for Carr’s long-term future is anyone’s guess, but San Francisco doesn’t need to concern itself with that.
After all, its third-string quarterback, Brock Purdy, is the talk of the league and is playing well.
Purdy will be seeking his fourth win in a row this New Year’s Day after being forced into the starting job back in Week 14, while the 49ers are gunning for their ninth consecutive victory.
49ers injury report vs. Raiders Week 17
The Niners came close to returning All-Pro wide receiver Deebo Samuel this week after he suffered what appeared to be severe knee and ankle injuries back in Week 14.
- WR Deebo Samuel (knee, ankle): OUT
- QB Jimmy Garoppolo (foot): OUT
- DL Kevin Givens (knee): OUT
- DL Kerry Hyder (ankle): Questionable
- CB Ambry Thomas (ankle): Questionable
San Francisco’s defensive line is already a bit thin, and that could make things troublesome against Las Vegas’ No. 1 offensive weapon, Pro Bowl running back Josh Jacobs.
49ers vs. Raiders odds, spread, over/under & betting pick Week 17
The 49ers originally opened up as 5.5-point road favorites for this game, according to the oddsmakers at WynnBET.
However, in the wake of Carr’s benching, the Niners now sit at as 9.5-point favorites.
San Francisco’s moneyline is -475, whereas Las Vegas’ is +365.
The over/under is 42.5.
Perhaps the game would have been more competitive with Carr under center, and Stidham going up against the NFL’s No. 1 defense suggests this contest turns into a one-sided affair.
Look for the 49ers to cover and win big, perhaps by the final score of 28-10.
Game odds refresh periodically and are subject to change.
