49ers-Falcons odds, predictions: Betting lines, picks for NFL Week 15 game




 

The 49ers (11-2) say they aren't taking the Atlanta Falcons (4-9) lightly this week, but Las Vegas might be.

San Francisco is a massive favorite ahead of Sunday's game at Levi's Stadium, favored by as many as 11 points. It marks the fourth time the 49ers have been double-digit favorites in a game this season, but the NFC West leaders have not covered the spread in any of those prior contests.

The fourth time could be the charm Sunday as Kyle Shanahan coaches against the Falcons for the first time. Shanahan was Atlanta's offensive coordinator from 2015 through 2016, including during the Falcons' 34-28 loss to the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LI. In other words, prepare yourself for plenty of "28-3" references during the game.

When the 49ers kneeled for the final time on Sunday, officially launching themselves to a Super Bowl berth after a 37-20 annihilation of Green Bay, Levi's Stadium shook with joy. Kyle Shanahan threw down his headset and hugged every warm body in sight, the players' families swarmed the field, and red and gold confetti rained down until there was barely a blade of visible grass left on the field. Running back Raheem Mostert celebrated his 220 yards and four touchdowns, and also the fact that he has found such an idyllic home after being cut by six other teams.

Gun industry gathers amid slumping sales, rising tensions

Gun companies are gathering for their annual conference and trade show this week in Las Vegas at a pivotal moment for the industry amid slumping sales, a public increasingly agitating for restrictions on access to firearms and escalating tensions over gun control efforts. The event, held by the National Shooting Sports Foundation, the gun industry's lobbying group, will take place in Las Vegas - about 3 miles (4.8 kilometers) from the deadliest mass shooting modern U.S. history. Gun sales normally taper off during Republican administrations because gun owners are not as compelled to stockpile weapons out of fear that lawmakers will impose restrictions on firearms.
