Predictions For 49ers Seahawks Betting – Seahawks Look To Keep NFC West Hopes Alive Versus 49ers On Sunday Night Football

Posted by Tony Bryant on 12/19/2012 5:41:39 PM

The Seattle Seahawks have battled all season to remain in the NFC West division hunt. After outscoring their opponents by a combined 108-17 in back-to-back wins, the Seahawks will now look to keep their division hopes alive when they host the 49ers this Sunday. San Francisco is coming off an emotional win over the New England Patriots and is traveling for the second-straight week, two factors that football fans in Seattle are hoping will work in their favor this sports betting weekend. The Seahawks are one-and-a-half games back of the 49ers for first place, with each of their final two regular season games at home.

San Francisco will wrap up its regular season schedule at home against the Arizona Cardinals the following week, but for now the goal remains taking care of business. The 49ers also lead the Green Bay Packers by one-half game in the battle for the second conference seed, which will mean a first-round bye and home field advantage.

That package is lucrative enough that even with a nearly guaranteed win over the Cardinals in the season finale, San Francisco will still look to take care of business this week. Colin Kaepernick has looked excellent as the starter including four touchdown passes in last week’s win over the Patriots, and his ability to run the ball has only enhanced a rushing attack that ranks second in the NFL in yards. Running back Frank Gore continues to carry the load with 1,118 yards and seven scores, and Kaepernick already has five rushing touchdowns to go with his seven passing scores. The 49ers’ defense struggled late in last week’s win, and Harbaugh will be looking for a more complete effort this time around.

The Seahawks have been solid on defense, but the real story heading in to this week is an offense that has lit it up over the last couple of weeks. Seattle has topped the 50-point mark in back-to-back wins, with rookie quarterback Russell Wilson scoring four times in last week’s win over the Buffalo Bills. Wilson has looked dominant at times this season, but will need a big game over an elite defense to prove his merit. The rookie passer certainly has some help in running back Marshawn Lynch, who is averaging over five yards per carry this season for 1,379 rushing yards and 10 touchdowns.

NFL Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

As tired as the 49ers may be following last week’s emotional win, this is a crucial game in terms of both the division and the conference and Harbaugh and his players understand that a win this week could mean a rest in the first round of the playoffs. The Seahawks have beaten up on some pretty poor defenses in each of the past two online betting weeks, and are bound to get a wakeup call with San Francisco in town.
