The San Francisco 49ers and the Las Vegas Raiders meet in week 17 NFL action from Allegiant Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

The San Francisco 49ers will try to keep their win streak going after a 37-20 win over Washington in their last game. Brock Purdy has thrown for 912 yards, 8 touchdowns and 3 interceptions on 67% passing while Christian McCaffrey has a team-high 580 rushing yards and 5 touchdowns this season. Brandon Aiyuk leads the 49ers in receiving with 65 grabs for 855 yards and 7 touchdowns while George Kittle has 52 catches for 713 receiving yards and a team-high 8 touchdowns. Deebo Samuel also has 612 receiving yards as well this season. On defense, Dre Greenlaw has a team-high 118 total tackles including 79 solo tackles while Nick Bosa has a team-high 17.5 sacks and the 49ers as a team have 15 interceptions this season.

The Las Vegas Raiders will be out to bounce back from a 13-10 road loss to Pittsburgh in their last game. David Carr has thrown for 3,522 yards, 34 touchdowns and 14 interceptions on 60.8% passing while Josh Jacobs leads the Raiders in rushing with 1,539 rushing yards and 11 touchdowns this season. Davante Adams leads the Raiders with 88 grabs and 1,290 receiving yards with 12 touchdowns while Mack Hollins has 635 receiving yards as well this season. On defense, Denzel Perryman has a team-high 83 total tackles while Maxx Crosby has a team-high 11.5 sacks this season.

San Francisco is 6-0 ATS in their last 6 games following a win and 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games following an ATS win while the under is 7-3 in their last 10 road games. Las Vegas is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games and 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games against a team with a winning record while the over is 4-1 in their last 5 games against a team with a winning record.

I get the case to be made on either side in this one, but I’m sticking with the 49ers. I just want no part of the Raiders right now even if they need the win and are at home, especially when you have the Niners on the other side who have clearly rallied around Brock Purdy as their QB for the season and it’s going to be very interesting what happens when Jimmy G gets back on track and Trey Lance comes back in the future. But for right now, the 49ers are playing to well to go against so give me the Niners here.
