The last time these two met, the Giants took advantage of the Niners' special teams failures and advanced to the Super Bowl on a FG in OT. They also played in early November, with the Niners stopping the Giants int he red zone in final seconds, 27-20.
Before we get into the numbers, let's review a few things that we know. The Giants need to be at critical mass to play their best football. They also play better on the road. They really play their best when no one gives them a chance.

We loved Green Bay (-5 1/2) last night, because everyone fell in love with the Bears after they dominated the sorry Colts in Week One. We knew the Bears' OL still stinks and they proved it once again by leaving Jay Cutler to fend for himself. ?We won't count this as a win, so we will still owe you three for this week.

The Sharks can score from any where on the power play. One off the things they knew they needed to improve was the point on the powerplay hence the reason why Brent Burns is a Shark. Last season the only defensive threat on the powerplay was Dan Boyle. That is no more. Burns is going to be logging a lot of time on the powerplay.
