49ers have nothing to play for, are bad ATS, they just got stomped on in their last 2 games. Their motivation has to be in the toilet. I don't see any reason Denver can't hammer them further into the ground.

Am I the only one that's a little surprised this line is only 3.5. Denver is back in the hunt and I expect a strong showing....and Lindsay is on a roll averaging more than 7 yards a carry in the last 3 games. He should have a easy time with the buttery SF defense. The 49ers have no hope, execpt for a no. 1 draft pick. If Denver can't cover -3.5 against SF they don't deserve to be in the playoffs.

Fansided: Denver Broncos become just 3.5-point favorites at 49ers
After week thirteen, the Denver Broncos opened as 5.5-point favourites against the San Francisco 49ers, according to OddsShark.com
Likely due to the injury bug of the Broncos, that has changed to just 3.5-points.
The Broncos lost cornerback Chris Harris Jr to a broken leg. He hopes to be back for the playoffs, if the team gets to the postseason.
Denver also lost wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders. That leaves rookie Courtland Sutton as the team's top wideout. It's his time to shine. It is a great opportunity for him to show what he can do the rest of the way as the number one guy for Case Keenum.
Consensus betting prediction from the Covers.com community:
Denver Broncos (72% consensus). The Denver Broncos have reeled off three straight victories to remain in the AFC wild-card race and look to add another triumph when they visit the San Francisco 49es on Sunday. But the Broncos were dealt a couple of blows to overcome in the forms of a season-ending injury to receiver Emmanuel Sanders and a probable season-ender for cornerback Chris Harris Jr... http://bit.ly/2B6GOLG
Niners Nation: Five players to watch when the 49ers face off against the Broncos at Levi's Stadium.
The 49ers, embarrassed in back-to-back road games against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Seattle Seahawks, return to Levi's Stadium Sunday for the first of three consecutive homes games. Their opponent, the Denver Broncos, are in the mix for an AFC playoff spot after rattling off three straight wins.
Here are five players to watch when the 49ers battle the Broncos on Sunday:
Goodwin makes his return against the Broncos after being excused by the 49ers the last two games to deal with a family matter. The 49ers' receiver is no stranger to adversity.
Mile High Report: The Denver Broncos will travel to face the San Francisco 49ers this week in the hopes of coming out with their fourth consecutive victory.
The Denver Broncos (6-6) come into this game against the San Francisco 49ers (2-10) having finally put together several confidence-building wins after a tough 3-6 start to the season. The AFC playoff picture is pretty muddled and uncertain for a slew of .500 teams, but the Broncos favorable schedule moving forward gives them a good chance to make some waves.
Those waves can only continue if they keep winning. After losing both Emmanuel Sanders and Chris Harris Jr. to injury, it will be on the 'next man up' to make it happen.
Fansided: Broncos at 49ers: Behind Enemy Lines with Niner Noise
The Denver Broncos travel to Santa Clara, California to take on the San Francisco 49ers. It marks the first meeting between the two teams in the regular season since 2014. In that game, we saw Peyton Manning pass Brett Farve for most touchdown passes in a career. It was a dominate performance by the Broncos.
Fast forward four years later, and the teams have dealt with major changed. Peyton Manning and Colin Kaepernick are no longer the quarterbacks for the Broncos and 49ers respectfully. The Broncos will see Nick Mullens and the 49ers will see Case Keenum.
As far as the 2018 season goes, both teams are in opposite directions.

Free Betting Prediction: Denver will WIN , San Francisco will Cover , and the Total will go Under .
The Denver Broncos have vaulted themselves back into the AFC playoff race, led by a resurgence from their defense. The next target in their sights? Rookie quarterback Nick Mullens and the San Francisco 49ers. Despite being at home in Levi's Stadium, the 2-10 49ers are 5.5-point underdogs, with the total set at 43.5.

Fansided: Broncos vs. 49ers: Streaming Info and Game Preview
The Denver Broncos are living the high life for the first time this season. Perhaps head coach Vance Joseph and vice president of football operations John Elway aren't that dumb after all. The Broncos did something they had not done in almost two full years Sunday, win a road game in the ignominious (as far as the Broncos are concerned) 11:00 am MST broadcast window.
In so doing, they really crippled the Cincinnati Bengals' playoff chances. The win was a Pyrrhic victory in many ways as star cornerback Chris Harris was lost for the short term.
To compensate for this, the Broncos have signed free agent cornerback Jamar Taylor.
The Sacramento Bee: Five things to watch when the 49ers host the Denver Broncos
Here are five things to watch Sunday when the 49ers try to help spoil the Denver Broncos' playoff hopes in their Week 14 matchup.A 'dead-even' quarterback situation
The rest of 2018 for the 49ers is all about laying the foundation for what should be another eventful offseason for coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch. And with quarterback Nick Mullens handling himself well since taking over for an injured C.J. Beathard on Nov. 1 against the Raiders, it appears Mullens might be overtaking Beathard for the right to back up Jimmy Garoppolo when he returns from his knee injury in 2019.
Mile High Report: Broncos at 49ers score predictions: Denver should win this one too
At 6-6, the Denver Broncos need to keep their winning streak going through the rest of their games to have a reasonable shot at powering their way into the AFC playoffs. Fortunately for them, they play a host of teams with losing records with the 2-10 San Francisco 49ers being one of them.
The Mile High Report staff and Brandon Perna are all looking for the Broncos win here in a 30-14 drubbing of the 49ers, but not all of us are seeing blowout in this game. Here is how we expect things to play out individually.
Mile High Report: 49ers could sneak up on the Broncos
The Denver Broncos need to keep their winning ways going against the struggling San Francisco 49ers this week. While it should be an easy win, the Broncos rarely do anything the easy way and the 49ers have been a feisty football club at times this year.
I caught up with David Fucillo from Niners Nation to find out a little bit more about this 49ers team and how they might present some challenges for the Broncos this weekend.1. How much have injuries played a role in the 49ers 2-10 season?

Niners Nation: Money is on 49ers, even as tickets are on Broncos
The San Francisco 49ers host the Denver Broncos on Sunday, and are currently four point underdogs. The line opened as high as six points, but has come down over the course of the week with bettors deciding to side with the 49ers.
The folks at William Hill post updates over the course of the week for each game, with a look at the percentage of total tickets bet on a point spread and the percentage of total money bet on a point spread. For 49ers-Broncos, 77 percent of tickets have been on the Broncos, but 51 percent of the total money has been on the 49ers.
CSN Bay Area: 49ers-Broncos injury report: Pierre Garcon still remains out
SANTA CLARA - It is looking like 49ers will not have Pierre Garcon available for their Week 14 match up facing the Broncos.
Garcon has been struggling to get his knee healthy enough to play, but has not been able to do so. It appears he took a step back and did not participate in practice today after being able to participate in limited fashion the day prior. Garcon has missed four of the last five games.
Dante Pettis and Kendrick Bourne will likely see their snap count remain fairly high, but Marquise Goodwin is returning back into the fold.

Niners Nation: Report: Broncos lose Emmanuel Sanders to torn Achilles in advance of 49ers game
The Denver Broncos have suffered a brutal loss on offense as wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders left Wednesday's practice with what is believed to be a torn Achilles, per Adam Schefter. The injury is one teams can figure out fairly quickly, but they will put him through tests to confirm.
If he is done for the season, that means he will not be playing on Sunday when the San Francisco 49ers host the Broncos at Levi's Stadium. The Broncos defense and Phillip Lindsay are the much bigger concerns, but this is a huge loss for Case Keenum and the offense.
