San Francisco has an experienced August QB rotation with Brock Purdy, Trey Lance, and Sam Darnold. In Week 1 of the preseason last August, the 49ers topped Green Bay, 28-21, scoring 20 first-half points. The 49ers had 347 yards while the Packers had 440 yards. Las Vegas head coach Josh McDaniels, a former offensive coordinator, prefers an uptempo spread attack. They have a deep QB rotation with Jimmy Garappolo and veteran Brian Hoyer along with Aiden O'Connell and Chase Garbers. The Raiders have a lot of young wide receivers who are competing for a roster spot, including speedy rookie Tre Tucker. The offense averaged 22.75 points in four preseason games last August, including wins of 27-11 and 26-20 over Jacksonville and Minnesota in Weeks 1 and 2. The defense has a lot of new faces after being one of the worst in the NFL in 2022, including 25th in points surrendered (24.6 pg). Play San Francisco/Las Vegas OVER the total.
