49ers back on a slide
The 49ers are back on a losing streak, losing their last two to the Giants and Bucs. San Francisco is now 2-9 overall, 3-8 against the spread and 6-5 with the over. They have hit the under in four of their last five games.
For being a 2-win team, the 49ers don’t have the worst stats. They rank near the middle of the pack in a lot of key offensive and defensive categories. While they give up 26.6 points per game, they are allowing just 350.4 yards per game on defense. Their rush defense actually ranks 10th in the NFL (102.7 ypg). Offensively, San Fran averages 21.7 points and 355.2 yards per contest. They have the fifth-best rushing attack in the NFL at 134.9 yards per game. Matt Breida is the leading rusher with 738 yards and three touchdowns. Nick Mullens has came on as the QB over recent weeks. He has thrown for 733 yards and five touchdowns with four interceptions. George Kittle is the leading receiver with 56 catches for 823 yards and three scores.
Seahawks back in playoff mix
The Seattle Seahawks have picked up back-to-back wins over the Packers and Panthers to get right back in the NFC playoff mix. Seattle is now 6-5 overall, 6-3-2 against the spread and 6-5 with the under. Seattle has hit the over in three straight.
Seattle has the league’s top rushing attack, as the Seahawks average 147.1 yards per game. It has led them to 25.1 points and 355.3 yards per contest. Chris Carson leads the way with 635 yards and four scores while two others have over 300 yards. Russell Wilson has rushed for 231 yards while throwing for 2,531 yards and 25 touchdowns with just five interceptions. Tyler Lockett has emerged as the leading receiver with 43 catches for 661 yards and eight scores. On defense, Seattle is giving up just 22.1 points and 359.7 yards per game. Frank Clark has amassed 10 sacks to lead the unit.
NFL Betting Trends
The 49ers have hit the under in five of their last seven division games and in four straight following a loss.
The Seahawks have hit the over in four of their last five conference games and four of their last five division games.
These two have hit the under in their last two meetings and I think the under will come again on Sunday. Seattle’s defense is playing pretty well and they will be motivated at home against a lackluster San Francisco offense. The 49ers have struggled to score on the road, posting just 26 total points over their last two road games. Seattle isn’t an offense that is likely to overwhelm anyone. The Seahawks are content to run the ball and control the clock.
NFL Prediction: 49ers/Seahawks Under 46
