NFL Week 3 picks, predictions:

The Arizona Republic: 49ers 23, Broncos 20

Jeremy Cluff writes: "The 49ers' insurance policy at QB, Jimmy Garoppolo, could pay off big this season, and will pay off in this game in Denver."

Fansided: 49ers 23, Broncos 17

Peter Panacy writes: "If anything, Denver’s problems under first-year head coach Nathaniel Hackett could and hopefully should carry over against a 49ers team that doesn’t experience any notable drop in the transition from Lance to Garoppolo. Provided Wilson doesn’t have a rebound game or one of those classic performances against his formal rivals, the Niners should be able to go on the road and win this one."

Draft Kings: Go with the 49ers in game vs. Broncos

David Fucillo writes: "This line is going to move in the 49ers direction at some point this week, so get your bets in now on them. They’re the better overall team with the Broncos struggling to get anything going for a second week in a row. With Jimmy Garoppolo in the saddle, this game will at least be close, and the 49ers defense should be enough to put them over the top."

Fan Duel: Take the Broncos in game vs. 49ers

Adam Taylor McKillop writes: "Even while playing at home, Russell Wilson and the Denver Broncos are not considered big favorites in this matchup. It should be a good defensive battle, and bettors will want to take advantage of the favorable +120 odds on Denver's 2.5-point spread. Wilson and his team should perform well at home."
