Two teams with a losing record square off when the San Francisco 49ers visit Urban Meyer’s Jacksonville Jaguars for Week 11.

The 49ers are fresh off a statement win in primetime vs. the Los Angeles Rams, spoiling Odell Beckham Jr.’s debut and limiting to just 2 catches for 18 yards. That was their first home win in more than a year and took them to 3-6 against the spread this season.

The Jaguars couldn’t get the job done and build on their impressive win over the Buffalo Bills. They lost to the Indianapolis Colts on the road but still managed to cover the 10-point spread, taking their record to 4-5 ATS for the season.

Unsurprisingly, Kyle Shanahan’s team is favored by the oddsmakers ahead of this matchup. Right now, the 49ers are 6.5-point road favorites for this game, while the game total is projected at 46 points. 

The 49ers want to keep the momentum going

The San Francisco 49ers are once again struggling to keep up with the rest of their division and a lot of that has to do with injuries. They have 14 players on the shelf right now, including most of their running backs. Even so, Elijah Mitchell has been quite efficient as of late, as he proved by rushing for 91 yards on 27 carries against the Rams.

 

Jimmy Garoppolo was once again a game manager and not much more, but he was efficient, completing 15 of 19 passes for 182 yards and 2 touchdowns, with Deebo Samuel leading the team with 97 yards on 5 receptions and two total touchdowns. The 49ers’ defense picked off Matthew Stafford twice and the 49ers nearly doubled their rivals in the time of possession (39:03 to 20:57).

 

The Jaguars are looking at another top-3 pick

The Jacksonville Jaguars have been slightly better than expected over the past couple of weeks but they’re still several pieces away from contention. Also, they need to find more consistency, as they’ve failed to string good efforts together. First-overall pick Trevor Lawrence wasn’t impressive with 16 completions on 35 passes for 162 yards with no touchdowns.

 

Even so, the Jaguars weren’t outplayed by their divisional rivals Colts. Nonetheless, their poor execution in the rivals’ side of the field was what led them to a 23-17 loss. Both got 15 first downs and they even won the total yards-duel 331-295. The Jags’ offensive line was shaky once again, allowing 3 sacks for a loss of 11 yards.
