Betting market: C.J. Beathard could close as a road favorite for the first time in his career, and bettors seem to be buying in.

Sixty-two percent of tickets are behind San Francisco, accounting for 78% of dollars as of writing (see live data here), which has moved the Niners from a pick ’em to -1. Similarly, the total has moved from 43.5 to 42.5 with 66% of bets and 61% of money wagered on the under. Danny Donahue

Trends to know: The 49ers and Cardinals are tied with the Giants for the worst record in football at 1-6.

When two bad teams play (i.e. won 20% or less of their games), the underdog is 67-45-4 (60%) against the spread since 2003. John Ewing

This might be one of the worst divisional matchups in some time. Since 2003, when two divisional opponents meet in October or later and each has won less than 20% of its games, the favored team is 6-1 straight up and ATS, with five of the seven games decided by single digits. Evan Abrams
