The rejuvenated San Francisco 49ers look thrilled to have moved on from Jimmy Garoppolo, as they've won both of their preseason games and haven't even played Trey Lance much yet.

Josh Yourish thinks we're in for a shootout this week, and it's hard to ignore the Houston Texans' preseason success as well.

Have the odds moved much this week? And is Josh right that bettors should expect a high-scoring game?

Let's take a peak at the updated odds from WynnBET Sportsbook and jump into a preview:

It pays to read Josh Yourish early in the week! The total moved in Josh's favor, increasing from 39 to 40.5, while the 49ers rose from -3.5 to -4 as favorites.

49ers vs Texans Best Bet and Prediction

There's certainly reason to like both offenses here. We already know Kyle Shanahan is an offensive mastermind as head coach of the 49ers, and we should see Trey Lance in action for an extended period.

With an actual, real-life NFL QB for the first time in years, the 49ers are one of my favorite futures wagers over at WynnBET. Don't sleep on what Shanahan can accomplish with Lance, George Kittle, Deebo Samuel, Brandon Aiyuk, and a factory stable of quality running backs to toy with.

Secretly, I'm optimistic for the Houston Texans' offense as well. Dameon Pierce looks like a monster, and Stanford man Davis Mills should improve on a solid rookie campaign. I expect lackadaisical defense overall and strong offensive play. Thus, Josh is on the money.

We're late to the party, but the over is still the play. Just next time, let's set reminders to our phones so Josh doesn't go and move the line with his pick before we can lock in a better number.

Pick: Over 40.5 (-110)
