The Seattle Seahawks will look to get one more win before diving into the playoffs. And they could get that at the expense of NFC West rivals, San Francisco 49ers. But will the Niners break that easy? Or will San Francisco avenge their loss earlier this season to the Seahawks.
Betting Preview for the Seattle Seahawks vs San Francisco 49ers Regular Season Week 17 Game on January 3, 2021
Where: Levi’s Stadium, Santa Clara
When: Sunday, January 3, 2021, 4:25 PM ET
TV Broadcast: FOX
Betting on the Seattle Seahawks (-6.5)
Regular Season Record: 11-4
The knock on the Seahawks for most of the season is that they could not defend. Things have changed of late, though, for Seattle, which has seemingly improved on that side of the ball. Over their last three games, the Seahawks have allowed just nine points — the fewest in the NFL during that stretch. Seattle has also surrendered 290.7 total yards on average in those games which is fourth overall in that span. In their 20-9 win at home win over the Los Angeles Rams last Sunday, the Seahawks saw LA go just 9 of 21 on third and fourth downs, while sacking Jared Goff three times. Clearly, the Seahawks have sent a loud message to San Francisco ahead of these two teams’ rematch on Sunday. The Seahawks overwhelmed San Francisco with their offense in their 37-27 home win in Week 8, with Russell Wilson tossing four touchdowns and zero interceptions, but Sunday’s game could see Seattle bringing the pain on both sides of the field.
The under is 7-3 in the Seahawks’ last 10 games overall.
Betting on the San Francisco 49ers (+6.5)
Regular Season Record: 6-9
The 49ers have been playing with a banged-up roster on an almost weekly basis this season. That’s the same story for the team in Week 16, but it didn’t stop San Francisco from hurting the Arizona Cardinals’ playoff hopes with a 20-12 win in Glendale. Without Nick Bosa, Dee Ford, Richard Sherman, Jimmie Ward, Jaquiski Tartt, and Javon Kinlaw, the 49ers managed to silence Kyler Murray and the Cards’ attack. At this point, it’s hard to underestimate the ability of defensive coordinator Robert Saleh, who should one day be an NFL head coach. The 49ers are fifth in the NFL this season with 316.7 total yards surrendered per contest and. The 49ers are sixth against the run and fourth against the pass. On offense, the Niners will rely on the arm of quarterback CJ Beathard, who looked good in the Arizona game, passing for 183 yards and three touchdowns without an interception on 13-of-22 completions.
The over is 3-1 in the Niners’ last four games as the home team.
The Seahawks win, 27-19.
