The San Francisco 49ers are in a position to move to 10-3 on the season this weekend, and
doing so against the Seattle Seahawks, of all teams, could potentially mark the end of Seattle’s push for the NFC West crown. A loss would drop the Seahawks to 6-7 on the season and allow the Los Angeles Rams, who have already navigated their way back to .500, a chance to potentially jump Seattle in the standings.
While traveling to San Francisco is a tall task, this game is incredibly important for the Seahawks, especially considering they’ve dropped three straight games and four of the last five as well.
49ers Rolling During Winning Streak
NFL fans witnessed a three-week stretch where the 49ers almost looked like they were coming back down to earth. The team lost three consecutive games against the Cleveland Browns, Minnesota Vikings and Cincinnati Bengals, but bounced back in a big way with four straight victories, including a 31-13 road win against this same Seattle team two weeks ago.
The 49ers have looked dominant during that stretch, scoring north of 27 points in every game and 31-plus in three of four. Now, the Seahawks need to figure out how to fix its own issues and get to do so against one of the hottest teams in the NFL — a less-than-ideal outlook.
Seahawks vs 49ers Best Bet
The betting line on this game makes for an interesting debate when evaluating Las Vegas NFL picks for the weekend of action. While the 49ers are clearly the better team right now, the Seahawks desperately need to pull out a win here, and they’re getting 11 points. The spread is about right based on the recent results and it wouldn’t be at all surprising to see the 49ers win by two scores.
That said, this may very well end up being a game that saves Seattle’s season or puts the team in a completely miserable spot going forward. I still don’t think the Seahawks win, but I think they will keep it within double digits here.
Predicted Score: San Francisco 49ers 34 Seattle Seahawks 27
NFL Pick: Seattle Seahawks +11 (-110)
Over Looks Like a Solid Target Here
The 49ers’ offense has been humming right along, and we’ve seen the Seahawks step up in a big way on that side of the ball in key spots, with a primetime matchup against the Dallas Cowboys as a prime example. I think there’ll be no shortage of points in this matchup, and even though the 49ers pull out the win, it should clear the projected total of 47 points.
NFL Pick: Over 47 points (-110)

Questions Of The Day
What are the best player props to bet on for this game?
Deebo Samuel to go over 50½ receiving yards. The Seahawks struggle against opposing wide receivers and Samuel has topped this mark in three consecutive games, including putting up 79 yards in the last meeting against the Seahawks two weeks ago.
Which team has the highest probability to make more field goals?
Seahawks kicker Jason Myers ranks No. 4 in the NFL with 25 made field goals and has attempted 32 this season. The 49ers attempt fewer field goals on average, with kicker Jake Moody converting 17-of-20, and considering the likelihood of the 49ers defense keep Seattle out of the end zone, I’ll take Myers and the Seahawks to make more.
