NFL Proline Picks | Week #1 | MIN vs. SF | Sep 14, 2015
Many are predicting that the 49ers are not going to be very good this season and we tend to agree. Vegas has the 49ers season wins total set at just 6 games. The 49ers lost Patrick Willis, Anthony Davis, Chris Borland and Justin Smith to retirement, Frank Gore is now in Indianapolis, and Jim Harbaugh is no longer the coach. Even with all of these players the 49ers only managed an 8-8 record last season and they will be hard-presses to do that well this year. As for the Vikings there is a lot of promise heading into the new season. Bridgewater is expected to keep on getting better and with the additions of Peterson and Mike Wallace they will a much improved team. Currently Bodog Canada has the Vikings as a -2 favourite. We’ll take the Vikings to cover the short spread.
