Two top tier defenses will be at work Sunday in what is already a crucial game in the NFC West.

The Seattle Seahawks have done what nobody could have predicted before the season – they knocked off the Cowboys, the Packers and the Patriots – all three games coming at home. On the road they are a bit of a different story – losses versus the Rams and the Cardinals have both come on the road.

Seattle brings an emerging offense into Sunday’s game. We all know what Marshawn Lynch is capable of.

He and the Seahawks own the 7th best rushing offense in the NFL but Lynch is coming off an uncharacteristically poor performance last week in which he ran for just 41 yards. Lynch is averaging 4.3 yards per carry with two touchdowns and Robert Turbin is averaging 4.5 yards per carry.

Surprisingly it was Seattle’s passing game that got it done last week. Rookie QB Russell Wilson threw for 292 yards and three touchdowns in their win against New England for his best game as a pro. Sidney Rice is the leading Seahawk receiver with 20 catches and two touchdowns, Zach Miller has looked OK with 14 catches, and Golden Tate has big the big-play guy with 13 catches with three touchdowns. With a passing game that is suddenly formidable, the Hawks look pretty good going into Sunday on offense.

Seattle`s defense has been incredible so far this season. The Seahawks’ allow 15.5 points per game (2nd in the league), 70 rushing yards per game (second fewest in the NFL), and 224.7 passing yards (13th in the league) with five interceptions and 17 sacks. They have been a handful for every team thus far and against a 49ers team that took a step backward last week, they should be solid again this week.

The 49ers simply got beaten down in every aspect of the game last week. You can bet that they are hungry to get back on the field to avenge that loss. Their offensive game plan revolves around the run – the 49ers are tops in the NFL averaging 176.83 yards on the ground. Frank Gore leads the Niners’ rushing attack averaging 5.4 yards per carry with four touchdowns and Kendall Hunter is averaging 5.5 yards per carry with a touchdown. They absolutely have to be able to run the ball to be effective – Alex Smith doesn’t react well to having to shoulder the load!

Speaking of Mr. Smith. He and the 49ers passing game is a disappointing 26th in the NFL averaging 210 yards per game. Smith has completed 67.7 percent of his passes with eight touchdowns and four interceptions and he has been sacked 16 times and the 49ers have also increased the role of Colin Kaepernick who has completed five of nine passes and who has rushed for 112 yards and two touchdowns. Michael Crabtree, Vernon Davis, Mario Manningham and Randy Moss are huge weapons – Smith just has to find a way to utilize them. [soliloquy id=”82219″]

San Fran’s defense has been as advertised – spectacular except for last week. They allow just 15.67 points per game (3rd in the league), they are second against the pass allowing just 183 yards per game and they are ninth against the run allowing 92.67 yards per game.

Betting Prediction: A few trends to consider:
• The total has gone UNDER in 5 of Seattle’s last 6 games
• Seattle is 4-1 SU in its last 5 games
• The total has gone UNDER in 6 of Seattle’s last 8 games on the road
• Seattle is 2-4 SU in its last 6 games when playing San Francisco
• San Francisco is 9-2 SU in its last 11 games at home
• San Francisco is 17-5 SU in its last 22 games
• San Francisco is 4-2 SU in its last 6 games when playing Seattle
• San Francisco is 4-2 SU in its last 6 games when playing at home against Seattle

The 49ers had a certain swagger before last week’s game and although they are still considered among the elite of the NFL, some luster has worn off – they were exposed by the Giants! 7 1/2 points is lot to give – I can’t see the 49ers blowing the Hawks away.

In a low scoring, defensive battle, take the Hawks to cover the rather large spread.

The oddsmakers certainly aren’t giving the Hawks a lot of love are they?

Pick: Seattle Seahawks +7 1/2 and take a look at the Under – 37 1/2 points
