To say this is a match up of a couple of teams heading in different directions would be a major understatement.
The Giants have won their last 2 games after losing their first 2 while the 49ers have lost 3 in a row after winning their season opener.
The Giants open at -7 as the home favorite in this NBC Sunday night game and they have to have confidence, which is something 49ers’ QB Colin Kaepernick really lacks right now.
The 49ers have lost their last 4 road games.
San Francisco 49ers
Kaepernick was less than impressive, yet again, last week in the 49ers 17-3 loss to the Green Bay Packers where he was 13/25 for 160 yards with 0 TD and he was sacked 6 times.
He was picked off once in the game and has 5 in his last 2 games. He has a less than stellar WR corps, but can his line give him time to find them?
He sure hopes so this Sunday night facing a New York pass defense that ranks dead last in the league.
Carlos Hyde has been one of the bright spts for the 49ers this season, but only had 20 yards on 8 carries in the Green Bay loss. Things do not get any easier this week, as while the Giants have struggled against the pass their run D ranks 2nd in the league.
If there were any game for Kaepernick to bounce back it is this one, as he now only faced a suspect New York secondary, but the Giants pass rush only has 5 sacks through 4 games.
New York Giants
Eli Manning had a solid game in the Giants last win, which was a 24-10 win over the Buffalo Bills and he has no lack of weapons on the outside. Victor Cruz is back and
Odell Beckham Jr. has over 300 receiving yards. The San Francisco pass defense only ranks 21st in the league, but they did not play badly in the loss to Green Bay only allowing Aaron Rodgers to pass for 200 yards.
Remember when the 49ers had a fearsome run defense? While that was not long ago they also rank 21st in run rushing defense and they gave up 162 rushing yards last week to the Packers.
New York has not run the ball well this season and leading rusher Rashad Jennings only has `134 rushing yards through 4 games and is averaging only 3.2 yards per carry.
The Giants have won 5 of their last 7 games facing the 49ers.
Hard to believe that if the 49ers lose this game they will be at 1-4, but oh how the mighty have fallen.
You know it is bad in the City by the Bay when people are calling for Blaine Gabbert to start under center.

4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: Over 45
The 49ers have failed to cover the spread in 7 of their last 9 games facing the Giants. However, with the betting trends and the recent play of Kap pointing to a Giants win I am going to buck the trends.
I am not giving up on the QB and I think he will have a big game and not only will the 49ers cover the spread, but they will leave the Big Apple with a W.
