Week 15 NFL picks: Why the Niners will beat the Steelers 9-6.

Here are my Week 15 NFL picks. 49ers vs. Steelers: 49ers 9-6. The Steelers should struggle to score points. They won’t be able to run the ball – not against this front seven. So they’re going to pass, their offensive line is mediocre at best, and one of their best linemen, center Maurkice Pouncey, has a high ankle sprain and he’s questionable for Monday night. Justin Smith, Aldon Smith, Ray…

Week 11 NFL picks

Here are my Week 11 NFL picks 49ers vs. Cardinals: 49ers. This will not be a “trap game” for the Niners. Jim Harbaugh is too good of a coach right now to let his team come out flat on Sunday. His motivational theme of the week is “rivalry game.” My guess is he’ll use this theme for the rest of the divisional games. The Niners are 9.5 point favorites to…

Week 10 NFL picks

Here are my week 10 NFL picks. 49ers vs. Giants: 49ers. The Giants allow an average of 127.1 yards rushing per game. So, I’m setting the over/under for Gore’s rushing total at 160 yards. I’m also setting Brandon Jacobs over/under at 30 rush yards. It’s tough for any team to win when you can’t run or stop the run, so the Giants are going to lose. Score prediction: 27-20 Niners….

Week 8 NFL picks

Here are my week 8 NFL picks. Browns @ 49ers: 49ers. Greg Cosell thinks this game will be close but I disagree. I think the Niners will cover the 9.5 point spread – they’re undefeated against the  spread this season. Actually, I think the Niners will win by two touchdowns. I think Colin Kaepernick will get at least one series at quarterback at the end of the game, Frank Gore…

Week 6 NFL picks

Here are my week 6 NFL picks. 49ers @ Detroit: 49ers. The Niners D will take away Jahvid Best just like they took away LeSean McCoy and all the other running backs they’ve faced the last couple years. Then Stafford will be forced to throw the ball up to Calvin Johnson while he’s covered. The Niners defensive backs have been talking all week about how important it is to play…
