San Francisco outgained Minnesota by a 423-323 margin and won the turnover battle by a 2-1 margin in the victory.

The Seattle Seahawks lost their 3rd straight game and dropped to 3-8 on the season after being defeated by the Washington Football Team, 17-15, this past Sunday. Seattle had a chance to force OT after 32-yard TD reception by Freddie Swain with just :15 seconds left made it a 15-13 game, however, the Seahawks came up short after not being able to convert the two-point conversion. Seattle was outgained by Washington by a 371-267 margin and committed 1 turnover in the loss.

The 49ers are 4-1 ATS in tier last 5 games overall & 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games as a road favorite. The Seahawks are 2-5-1 ATS in their last 8 December games & 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games vs. NFC West opponents.
These are two teams that are going in different directions as the 49ers have looked like one of the better teams in the NFL over the past month while Seattle has lost 6 of their last 7 games with their only victory coming against Jacksonville. San Francisco has been outstanding on the offensive end as the 49ers have put up 30+ points in 4 of their last 5 games and as the Seattle offense has just not been able to get anything going, averaging just 9.3 ppg over their last three games, I think San Francisco will be able to do enough on the road to cover this spread. Good Luck!
