The San Francisco 49ers (3-2) travel to Texas to take on the Houston Texans (3-3) at Reliant Stadium, kick-off is scheduled for 1:00pm ET. The 49ers hope to come out of their bye week and rebound after being crushed at home by The Falcons 45-10 in week 5. The 49ers will get a little boost to their offense with the return of running back Frank Gore, and much anticipated debut of rookie wide receiver Michael Crabtree. The Texans and Matt Schaub look to continue to dominate the passing attack like they did in week 6, where Schaub matched a career high with four TD passes and threw for 392 yards against the Bengals. The Texans will look to beat the 49ers at home, and put together their first two consecutive wins this season.

San Francisco vs Houston Betting Predictions:
Final Score – 49ers 24 @ Houston 21
Spread – Lay it down on the 49ers to beat the spread this week. The return of Frank Gore is going to take some pressure off of quarter back Shaun Hill and allow him to move the ball down the field and make some long pass completions, and hopefully allow him to find some chemistry with Crabtree. The Texans are looking to find some consistency of defense, and I don’t believe they find it this week against this rested 49ers team. Bet on the San Francisco 49ers to beat the 3 point spread (-110).
Over/Under – I like the total to go over the 44 points. Look for this one to be high scoring, with two offenses that are capable of putting up some points. Look for Texans quarterback Matt Schaub to put up a lot of points through the air against this 49ers pass defense, who allow an average of 234 passing yards per game, and Gore to move the ball on the ground against The Texans defense who allow an average of 125 yards per game on the ground. Look for there to be points put up on the board early and often in this one. Bet on the total to go OVER the 44 in this game (-110) at Bodog.com.
