San Francisco at Buffalo

5 units on San Francisco +7 (-115) (risk 5 to return 5)  RESULT: WIN

I think by now everyone saw the meltdown by Mike Singletary after his first game taking over this team. The fact is his team was playing heartless and soft, and he called some players out, and the Niners are now playing hard for him. Buffalo is off of a big win in Kansas City, at least in the eyes of the public. But how quickly people forget. This is a team that dropped four straight before their win in Kansas City last week. What they did last week was beat a team that has been 1-19 in their last 20 regular season games, so using that game as a marker for a team to have turned things around would be a big mistake. They gave up 31 points to a team that only surpassed that mark in a game against Denver, one of the worst defensive teams in the league. The win doesn't make up for the fact that this once 5-1 team that was allowing 19.6 ppg, has now gone 1-4 allowing 26.2 ppg. They have defensive issues, and have only gotten to the QB 18 times all season. Just remember Oakland got 23 on this team, Kansas City just got 31, and Cleveland posted 29. The Niners have hung tough on the road at Arizona, who has been blowing everyone out at home. They crushed St. Louis on the road, and matched Dallas first down for first down, with 16 apiece. Buffalo should not be a hefty chalk here, and I'll back the Niners with the points.
