The Panthers are quietly the only other winless team in the NFL alongside the Bills, and they host the underachieving Niners this week. Panthers QB Matt Moore returns after he got the hook for being pretty awful to start the year (4.3 yards per pass play) and WR Steve Smith returns after an injury knocked him out of the last few games. These are both upgrades to Carolina’s offense (yes Clausen was that bad) but the Niners defense is still one of the stingiest in the league, despite the team’s 1-5 record.
Alex Smith’s job is hanging by a thread in San Fran. He’s made some great throws this year, but he’s also nearly played himself back out of the NFL with some horrible decisions, which unfortunately for him were seen on Prime Time television. However Smith is the most accurate redzone QB this year, throwing 7 of his 8 TD passes within the opponent’s 20 yard line, with 0 interceptions.

The Niners can, and should have won more games so far. Singletary is a great motivational speaker, but he’s not a good football coach. He belongs at a boot camp, not coaching NFL players, and until they make the change at head coach the Niners won’t play to their potential. However until then, they can pick up a few good wins on the back of Frank Gore, Vernon Davis, and Michael Crabtree.

49ers vs. Panthers Prediction for Week 7 Betting:
Game Total Prediction (Top Play): Two teams who score the least amount of points are playing each other, hence the low total this week. The Panthers are coming off a bye, so they’ve had an extra week to figure out how they’ll put some points on the board. The Niners have the talent, and we’re just waiting for them to break out. I think this is the week. The number is a low 35.5, and through 4 quarters I see this game going over the number. Both teams have the rushing attacks to generate yards, so I like this game to go over the number this week. The over is 11-2 in the last 13 between these two teams.
Spread Prediction: The Panthers showed some toughness versus the Saints a few weeks ago, but looked lost at home versus the Bears before their bye. But Moore is a better QB that Clausen, and the Bears defense were all over the rookie QB in a tough situation for Carolina. That game wasn’t indicative of how they can play, and after a bye I like Carolina to come out and play to their ability versus an unstable San Fran team.
