Monday Night DFS Breakdown: Browns vs. 49ers
Monday Night DFS Breakdown: Browns vs. 49ers

This article is part of our Showdown/Single Game DFS Breakdown series.

Monday Night Football greets us with the 49ers hosting the Browns in Santa Clara, with the home team now favored by 5.0 on FanDuel Sportsbook with a total of 47.5. The Niners actually opened as 3.5-point favorites but enough sharp money has moved it all the way up to 5.0 despite more public money on the Browns, a preseason favorite among bettors.

The Browns have been quite up and down this season, getting smoked by 30 at home in the opener by the Titans and then turning around and beating the Sam Darnold-less Jets on Monday Night Football by 20. They followed that up by a touchdown loss to the Rams and then a 15-point win over the Ravens last week, the first solid game from quarterback Baker Mayfield. On the other hand, the 49ers come in as the only undefeated team in the NFC, though they're only 3-0 after having last week off. With so much talk about the NFC West teams this season, from the Cardinals' high-octane offense that's been anything but, Russell Wilson's MVP-level play and the Rams trying to get back to the Super Bowl, the 49ers have quietly taken care of business, beating the Buccaneers by 14, the Bengals by 24 and the Steelers by four, respectively. A solid number of points could definitely be scored Monday, though each team has a number of ways to get the total up, which could become problematic for fantasy players.
