San Francisco 49ers Vs. New Orleans Saints NFL Week 14 Betting Picks And Odds
Two of the best teams in the NFC will go head-to-head this Sunday, seeking the top of the Conference, when the San Francisco 49ers visit the New Orleans Saints in the NFL Week 14.
The top seed will be at stake in this game. San Francisco is now fifth in the NFC, but they must meet the Seattle Seahawks in the last week of the regular season.
The Niners could take the top of the NFC West back and perhaps the top of the Conference.

The San Francisco 49ers’ Edge Vs. The Saints
The 49ers two losses came against mobile quarterbacks, which by the way, are playing at the highest level in the NFL. Both Russell Wilson and Lamar Jackson are the two main favorites to win the MVP award and the two that were able to beat San Francisco.
The Niners defense line is more suited to put pressure on pocket quarterbacks, just like Drew Brees. San Francisco has the second-most sacks in the NFL with 45, and they own the best total defense in the entire league. Putting pressure is the key to their success.
Just a month ago, the Falcons gave the Saints an unexpected loss by sacking QB Drew Brees six times that day. Atlanta’s defensive line is not even close to being as good as the Niners.
San Francisco’s offense should be a lot better than what they showed last week, especially in the passing game. The team struggles to move the ball down the field under the rain and against the Ravens aggressive defense. They did run for 174 yards.
The New Orleans Saints’ Edge Vs. The 49ers
The Saints are one of the most complete teams in the NFL. They are not the shiny new thing like the Niners, but they do a lot of things very well.
Their three-headed monster, Drew Brees, Alvin Kamara, and Michael Thomas are more talented than any of the options the Niners have on offense.
Brees, in particular, is a huge difference compared to the Niners QB Jimmy Garoppolo. Brees is a future Hall of Fame quarterback with a fantastic grasp of his offense. Jimmy, instead, is still learning and trying to make a name for himself.
And then, there is Michael Thomas, who has been unstoppable all season. Thomas leads the NFL with 110 receptions, 1290 yards, and six touchdowns. As good as the 49ers defense is, guarding a strong wideout like Michael Thomas sometimes can’t be a tough ask. So far, no one has had the answer.
San Francisco 49ers At New Orleans Saints NFL Week 14 Picks
Inside a dome it is really complicated to beat the Saints, we all know this. New Orleans has had ten days to prepare for this game after playing on Thanksgiving last week. Those three extra days are crucial to try to contain the Niners pass-rush.
The game should be close from start to finish, but San Francisco is yet to learn how to win these types of close contests.
Both their quarterback and head coach are inexperienced in these situations. I have New Orleans winning by a field goal. Bet Saints -2.5.
