The San Francisco 49ers are ravaged by injuries as they head to Metlife Stadium to play the Giants in Week 3. Jimmy Garoppolo and George Kittle were ruled out this week, and are joined by Tevin Coleman, Raheem Mostert, Dee Ford, Dre Greenlaw, Nick Bosa and Richard Sherman as regular starters who will also miss this game.

Betting Impact:

Given that the spread has remained at 49ers -3.5, oddsmakers likely factored in to some degree the chances that Garoppolo and Kittle would not play. However, the over/under did reach 42 points which is the highest it has been all week. Thus, despite backup quarterback Nick Mullens starting in Garoppolo's place, bettors seem to care more about the 49ers injuries on defense and the possibility they will not be able to slow down the Giants offense as well as they normally would have.
