Yesterday the 49ers were three-point favorites to beat the Falcons. Today, the 49ers are four-point favorites. Take away the three-point home field advantage, and the odds makers are saying the 49ers are a touchdown and an extra point better than the Falcons.
The consensus around the league is the 49ers will go right into Atlanta and beat the Falcons rather easily.
That’s a tremendous slap in the face to the No.1 seed, a team that’s only lost two meaningful games all season, a team with excellent players and coordinators.
As an intellectual exercise, can you come up with a scenario where the Falcons win this game?
Or are they hopeless?
