49ers vs Broncos : 2019 National Football League There is just one preseason Monday Night Football game this year, and it concludes Week 2 as the Denver Broncos host the San Francisco 49ers. Kickoff is at 8 p.m. ET from Broncos Stadium at Mile High in Denver. It’s the first home game for new Broncos head coach Vic Fangio, a rare defensive-minded hire this offseason. Denver beat the Falcons in the Hall of Fame Game and fell by eight at Seattle last week. Meanwhile, it’s the first road game of the preseason for the 49ers. Denver is a 1.5-point favorite and the over-under for total points scored is 40.5 in the latest Broncos vs. 49ers odds. Before you make any 49ers vs. Broncos picks or any 2019 NFL preseason predictions of your own, you need to see what NFL expert R.J. White has to say.
White has been SportsLine’s top pro football analyst for two-plus seasons. Over that span, the CBS Sports NFL editor and nationally-recognized NFL Draft expert has gone 214-164 on NFL picks against the spread, returning more than $3,200 to $100 bettors.
White was all over the Patriots covering in the 2019 Super Bowl, nailing the year’s biggest sporting event for the legions that follow him. White said he wouldn’t trust Rams QB Jared Goff in a big spot, and Goff’s bumbling performance was key to New England’s 13-3 win.
The stats guru, whose picks are coveted by fans everywhere, has cashed huge in the world’s most prestigious handicapping tournament, the Westgate Las Vegas SuperContest, twice in the past four years, and anyone who has followed his lead has reaped huge rewards.
Now, White has locked in on Niners vs. Broncos on Monday night. We can tell you he’s leaning over, but his most confident pick is against the spread. He’s only sharing that pick at SportsLine.
White knows that in his first game in front of the home fans, Fangio, the former Chicago Bears defensive coordinator, will want to win this one more than any other preseason game. Don’t rule out the effect that playing in the thin air will have on the visiting 49ers either, as the Broncos players are used to the altitude from practices and training camp. Denver owns one of the best home-field advantages in the NFL simply because of the altitude.
