Week 8 Seahawks vs. 49ers NFL Predictions

NFL Football Betting – Seattle Seahawks at San Francisco 49ers

The Seattle Seahawks (1-5 SU, 2-4 ATS) are looking for a break that will give them some badly-needed momentum. On Sunday they will try to get it against the San Francisco 49ers (2-5 SU & ATS) in an NFL contest that is set to take place at 4:15 PM ET at Candlestick Park (natural turf) in San Francisco.

Sunday, October 26
BetUS NFL Betting Odds: SAN FRANCISCO -5, Total 41

NOTABLE STAT: Seattle has converted just 29% of third down situations
KEY NFL FOOTBALL BETTING TREND: Niners are 4-9-1 ATS in their last 14 at home

In the BetUS NFL football betting odds, the 49ers are listed as a five-point favorite, with a posted total of 41 points.

Here are some NFL football betting trends as they relate to this matchup:

* SEA has covered two of its last seven games
* SEA has lost six of its last seven games SU
* SEA has played seven of its last nine games OVER the total
* SEA has covered one of its last six road games
* SEA has lost its last five road games SU
* SEA has played four of its last five road games OVER the total
* SF has covered one of its last five games
* SF has lost four of its last five games SU
* SF has covered four of its last 14 home games
* SF has lost eight of its last 11 home games SU
* SF has played eight of its last 12 home games UNDER the total


* SEA has won eight of the last 11 meetings SU
* SEA has covered four of the last six meetings as the road team
* SEA has won four of the five meetings SU as the road team

Seattle has problems on offense. This time, it’s not so much a matter of the receivers being thin. But Matt Hasselbeck is sitting out with a bulging disk in his back, and the two guys holding down the fort – Seneca Wallace and Charlie Frye – can hardly be described as polished or productive NFL quarterbacks. Wallace threw for just 73 yards in last week’s 20-10 loss to Tampa Bay, and is averaging a paltry 3.2 yards an attempt on his throws. Frye started the week before against Green Bay and passed for 83 yards, and is averaging 3.6 yards an attempt. There is only one receiver (rookie tight end John Carlson) with more than 10 catches. And Julius Jones has gained 147 yards over the last three games, when this team really needs him the most.

San Francisco has enough concerns to keep itself busy, thank you. The Niners, in the wake of four straight losses, in which the team gave up 31, 30, 40 and 29 points, elevated defensive coach Mike Singletary to head coach, getting rid of Mike Nolan. There are many people around the NFL who feel Singletary is going to be a fine head coach, although I think we’ve heard that about others, including Cam Cameron (remember him?). Singletary says he has full faith in Mike Martz, the offensive coordinator. We do too, and recognize that Martz will need more time to get a genuine offense going in San Francisco. Right now, he has the guy most familiar with the offense running it (J.T. O’Sullivan), and he’s had his ups and downs, throwing 10 interceptions and getting sacked 29 times.

Seattle has 14 sacks, but still, I see more upside, for purposes of this game, with the Niners, who will play a more spirited game on the defensive side with Singletary at the helm. We’ll lay the points with the Niners, the five-point favorite in the NFL football betting odds.
