Public Betting Trends
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetNow.eu, the Seahawks are 3.5-point favorites to beat the 49ers. The total, meanwhile, sits at 44 points. As of this writing, 73% of the public betting tickets are on the Seahawks to cover the point spread.
Russell Wilson completed just 10-of-20 passes for 72 scoreless yards and an interception in the Seahawks' 21-7, Week 14 win over the Vikings. Wilson at least made up for it a bit with 61 rushing yards, but he was one of the worst fantasy quarterbacks of the week. His big gaffe was just a flat-out stupid decision with six seconds left in the first half; Wilson was chased from the pocket, did a 360 turn, then blindly flung an interception right to LB Eric Kendricks with the Seahawks up 3-0 and near the goal line. Wilson never recovered and was bad all night. Seattle still won with ease on the back of Chris Carson and the run game along with the defense. Wilson should rebound next week at the Niners.
San Francisco 49ers
Nick Mullens completed 20-of-33 passes for 332 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in the 49ers' 20-14, Week 14 win over the Broncos. Mullens now has 746 yards over his past two starts. Today, he took advantage of elite scheming/awful defense on No. 1 weapon George Kittle, who exploded for 7/210/1 in the first half, including an 85-yard touchdown. Amazingly, Mullens did not find Kittle once after the break, though the 49ers' offense didn't do much of anything the final two quarters. The Broncos dominated time of possession as they mounted an ultimately futile comeback attempt. Willing to pull the trigger in a creatively-called offense, Mullens is always going to pair huge upside with through-the-floor downside. The Seahawks' foundering defense is on tap for Week 15.
