Seahawks 49ers Betting – Seattle Faces Urgent Task In San Francisco

The Seattle Seahawks face the most important game of their 2010 season this Sunday afternoon in San Francisco as they take on the San Francisco 49ers.

Online Betting Odds: 49ers -4.5

Why To Bet On The Seahawks

The biggest reason to bet on Seattle this weekend is that its opponent will not have its best offensive player. Sure, Vernon Davis is a pretty solid pass catcher, but everyone in the NFL knows that running back Frank Gore – knocked out for the remainder of the season in a Monday night game against the Arizona Cardinals on Nov. 29 – is the straw that stirs the drink for coach Mike Singletary’s club. Gore is a punishing running back who would have feasted against Seattle’s suspect rush defense, which got chewed up by the Kansas City Chiefs and Jamaal Charles on Nov. 28.

With Gore healthy, San Francisco would have been a clear favorite and an extremely attractive choice. As it is, the 49ers – who have struggled on offense throughout 2010 – will be limited in terms of what they can do. Seattle has a defense that’s ripe for the plucking, particularly against the run – but the 49ers probably won’t be able to do too much damage.

It would be surprising if San Francisco managed to score more than 21 points in this game. As long as the Seahawks can avoid giving up the big play and can make a few red-zone stops, they should be able to hold the 49ers to something in the area of 13 to 16 points. They’d have to like their chances. What’s more is that the 49ers are facing a likely sea of front-office changes; their motivation level might not be as great as it needs to be. Seattle will take all the advantages it can get.

Why To Bet On The 49ers

The reasons to pick the 49ers deal with Seattle more than anything else. The Seahawks have won only two road games this year, one of them against a terrible Arizona team. Coach Pete Carroll’s club has a defense that can be overpowered at times, and his offense is extremely shaky. Seattle has not had a really strong offensive line since its Super Bowl season in 2005.

The Seahawks were still good enough to reach the second round of the playoffs in the 2007 season, but their line play didn’t overwhelm opposing defensive fronts. Quarterback Matt Hasselbeck has taken a beating in recent years, detracting from his sharpness and overall quality. If the 49ers play with passion and commit themselves to finishing the season on a positive note, they can certainly win the battle at the line of scrimmage, especially on the defensive side of the ball. The 49ers can definitely limit Seattle to a low score and grind out a 13-10 kind of win.

How The Game Will Play Out

This will be a low-scoring defensive game in which red-zone trips and big plays will be at a premium. Field goals and punts should be plentiful, and neither team should run away with the proceedings. The sense is that Frank Gore’s absence will mean a lot. It’s hard to see how or why the 49ers are giving so many points in this contest. Perhaps it’s because Seattle got drilled on a road trip to Oakland earlier this year. Well, on this occasion, Seattle should fare a lot better in the San Francisco Bay Area. Take Seattle against the spread, if not straight-up.
