Betting market: Bettors aren’t buying into Nick Mullens Mania as the 49ers are getting just 39% of bets as of writing (see live odds and public betting data here). The Niners opened at -2.5 at some books and are now uniformly -3 across the market despite the odd lack of support for Mullens.

All joking aside, both of these teams are pretty terrible, combining to go 3-14 straight up 6-11 against the spread. It’s possible that bettors just want to take whichever team is getting points in this ugly Monday Night Football matchup. Mark Gallant

Trends to know: The Niners are small favorites following a strong performance from Mullens (262 passing yards and three touchdowns) in his first career start.

But can bettors trust San Francisco as chalk? Maybe not. The 49ers are 6-15 ATS in the 21 previous games they’ve been favored in since the 2014 season, according to our Bet Labs data. John Ewing
