San Francisco is 2-6 ATS in their last 8 division games and 9-19-1 ATS in their last 29 games against a team with a winning record while the over is 6-2 in their last 8 week 10 matchups. Seattle is 11-3-1 ATS in the last 15 meetings between these two teams and 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings between these two teams in San Francisco.
I get San Francisco being favored at home, but I’m not sure how the 49ers will handle this game. Yes, the Niners are undefeated, but outside of that blowout win over Carolina, the 49ers haven’t had a tough schedule up to this point. Seattle has had this game circled for some time now as it’s their chance to make up ground in the NFC West and while Seattle has had a lot of close calls this season, the fact is that the Seahawks keep finding a way to get the job done with a solid defense and a dynamic offense that just got better adding Josh Gordon to the team to stretch the field as long as he behaves. I just think the Seahawks have more experience in these big spotlight kind of games and this is where we will find out of the Niners are going to be legit down the stretch as the road doesn’t get any easier for the most part. I’ll take my free points with Seattle in a game I personally think that the Seahawks win outright.
