The Denver Broncos and San Francisco 49ers meet Sunday in week 14 NFL action at Levi's Stadium.
The Denver Broncos look for a fourth straight victory to get a game above a .500 record while staying in the thick of the AFC playoff race. The Denver Broncos have won three of their last four road games. Case Keenum is completing 62.3 percent of his passes for 2,953 yards, 14 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. Keenum has one or less touchdown passes in seven of his last 11 games.

Defensively, Denver is allowing 21.8 points and 382.9 yards per game. Todd Davis leads the Denver Broncos with 92 tackles, Von Miller has 12.5 sacks and Chris Harris Jr. has three interceptions.
The San Francisco 49ers look to play spoiler at this point after losing nine of their last 10 games. The San Francisco 49ers have lost three of their last five home games. Nick Mullens is completing 64.5 percent of his passes for 1,147 yards, seven touchdowns and five interceptions. Mullens enters this game with 141 career pass attempts under his belt. George Kittle and Marquise Goodwin have combined for 1,232 receiving yards and seven touchdowns while Kendrick Bourne has 29 receptions.

The Broncos are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 road games, 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games on grass and 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The 49ers are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games in December, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The over is 5-2 in 49ers last 7 home games. The under is 4-0-1 in Broncos last 5 games overall.
The Denver Broncos have turned their season around with three straight wins and have won those games by an average of 7.3 points. The San Francisco 49ers have scored 18 or less points in five of their last eight games and are losing by an average of 16.3 points during their three-game losing streak. The Denver Broncos are 3-5-2 ATS in their last 10 games when a favorite of at least three points. The San Francisco 49ers have failed to cover seven of their last 10 games when an underdog of at least three points. The 49ers don't have much going for them right now, while the Broncos are on the of the hottest, most confident teams in the league. It's kind of shocking that the line is this low, but I'm not asking many questions. I'll take the Broncos in what should be an easy victory.
