Football Betting at Get That Bet — New Stadium (With Old Sod) Makes Debut as Niners Host Bears

The San Francisco 49ers had the good fortune of getting three interceptions from Tony Romo last week. However, the Chicago Bears might not be in as charitable a mood on Sunday night, as they serve as the opposition for the regular-season opening of Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara. Sunday night football betting action for Get That Bet customers is slated to begin at 8:30 PM ET on NBC.

Last week the Bears had a very disappointing opening to their 2014 season, as they let the Buffalo Bills do what they wanted to on the ground in a 23-20 overtime loss. There is nothing the Niners like to do better than play a little “smashmouth” football, so unless Chicago tightens up its defense in a hurry, it could wind up being a long evening for them.

San Francisco got off to a 21-3 lead in the first quarter against the Dallas Cowboys last week, increasing that lead to 25 points at the half as they took advantage of turnovers. They didn’t have to do much on offense in the final 30 minutes to come away with a 28-17 victory and the covering effort as a road favorite against the NFL odds.

One of the things that has the 49er faithful very excited is the arrival of rookie Carlos Hyde, who was a star at Ohio State last season. Hyde has the ability to take some of the pressure off Frank Gore, who may have been overworked the last couple of seasons. In the opener, he had 50 yards on seven carries, and that is just fine, because it allows San Francisco to have a fresh back in the game at all times.

Colin Kaepernick did well for himself, completing almost 70% of his passes with a couple of touchdowns and no interceptions against Dallas. And he has four legitimate targets to throw to – Anquan Boldin, Stevie Johnson and Michael Crabtree among the wide receivers, and of course, Pro Bowl tight end Vernon Davis. Football bettors know it is quite possible that San Francisco can use the run to set up the pass, because Chicago, which allowed 193 rushing yards to Buffalo, was also worst in the league defending the run in 2013, allowing more than five yards a carry.


The other side of it, as Get That Bet patrons might be quick to point out, is that the Niner defense is still in a period of transition, as NaVorro Bowman and Aldon Smith are unavailable, and there is a re-worked secondary. Jay Cutler can test them, with his three-WR set of Brandon Marshall, Alshon Jeffery and Santonio Holmes.

An issue that may have an effect on this game is the quality of the field. The turf at brand-new Levi’s Stadium has already been changed a couple of times, and now they are using the same kind of sod that was used at Candlestick park. They have also replaced the sand base, which was thought to be the problem, in what was a substantial job.
