49ers at Broncos unfold, odds, picks: Expert predictions for Week 3 Sunday Night Football
(*3*) Two stout defenses will go at it during Sunday Night Football when Denver and San Francisco meet in the Mile High City. The 49ers are small favorites in this battle of teams looking to string together consecutive wins and remain above .500. The Broncos opened up as favorites and the line quickly moved towards the 49ers.
It’s been an imperfect start to the season for the Niners. Trey Lance’s season-ending injury and George Kittle’s more minor one have changed how the Niners were thought to be operating on offense. Fortunately for them, both Lance and Kittle were off the field for periods of last season, so the 49ers weren’t in foreign territory in Week 2 when they handled their division foes, the Seattle Seahawks. Just as fate would have it, Jimmy Garappolo is back under center and tasked with leading San Fran to another deep run.
The Broncos offense isn’t yet functioning as smoothly as many had probably envisioned — back-to-back 16-point performances should tell the story. Russell Wilson and his new offense will continue building necessary reps, but the route to progress won’t get any easier against a stingy San Francisco defense.
Sunday night’s game kicks off at 8:20 p.m. ET and will take place in Denver at Empower Field at Mile High. NBC will provide the coverage.
