Pick | Seahawks @ 49ers
Seahawks can still obtain the No. 1 seed in the NFC playoffs. Job number one is
securing a win over NFC West rival San Francisco. The Seahawks would then need
Green Bay and New Orleans to both lose in Week 17.
Seattle is going to the playoffs. Bettors should take note of the Seahawks
recent scoring trends and the fact that Seattle has covered the spread in just
two of the team’s last five games.

scoring in Seattle had something to do with a change in offensive philosophy.
The Seahawks were throwing the ball on first and second down 59.1 percent of
the time. If you know anything about Pete Carroll’s Seattle Seahawks, you know
that he’s a big believer in running the football.

welcomed back a healthy Jamal Adams to the secondary.
has been a complete reversal of the first month of the season. Since Week 10,
Seattle is 5-1 SU winning by an average score of 22.7 to 15. For all the
mathematicians in the house, that equals a total of 37.7 points per game.
Week 17 opponent is no offensive juggernaut either. The 49ers average a
mediocre 23.5 points per game, but the offense this week will be a shell of its
former self. Third-string quarterback C.J. Beathard will start again.

handicappers alike know that wide receiver Deebo Samuel
remains out of the lineup and Brandon Aiyuk will miss Sunday’s game as well.
Trent Williams, arguably the best LT in the NFL, is also out with an elbow
injury. The lone bright spot for San Francisco is that TE George Kittle will
play, but he likely will be limited. He only played 60 percent of the Niners
snaps last week.
For all the
math people again, this is really simple. Seattle’s defense - which is allowing
13.7 points per game since Week 11 plus a depleted San Francisco offense equals
bet the Under. The Total has gone Under in the last seven straight Seahawks
games and four the 49ers last six.
Pick: UNDER 46.5
