Another week of the NFL, another round of opening lines to come out for the games all around the league. For the San Francisco 49ers, they will travel to Cincinnati to face the Bengals and their bevy of young players. The 'Niners will not be the favorites this week, though, or at least they won't be to the oddsmakers in Las Vegas. OddsShark.com has the lines and the over/under for the matchup:
Bodog.com: Bengals (-3; +110), 49ers (+3; -130)
5Dimes.com: Bengals (-1 1/2; -125), 49ers (+1 1/2; +105)
BetOnline.com: Bengals (-3; +105), 49ers (+3; -125)
As for the game itself, it's looking like it should be a closely-contested matchup that could go either way. Each team features a roster with an assortment of young playmakers and a turnover or big defensive stop late in the game could play a huge role in the outcome. This is also the first road game of the year for San Francisco, which is something to keep an eye on as well.
