Following a huge upset win last weekend, the Seahawks look to take down another NFC West rival when they visit the 49ers in Santa Clara. Seattle throttled the Arizona Cardinals 19-3 to hand them just their second loss of the season. San Francisco has won three straight games and is in the thick of the division race with Seattle. Both clubs are 7-4 and just two games behind Arizona for the top spot. We are going to put our money down on the visiting Seahawks tonight.
Seahawks need to improve on the road to contend
If Seattle wants to defend its Super Bowl title, it will need to become a better road team beginning with tonight’s contest with the 49ers at Levi’s Stadium. Seattle has just two road wins this year in five games and this is only their third division game in 2014. Despite winning a huge game last week against Arizona, the Seahawks have to put that win behind them and focus on today’s opponent in order to be successful.
49ers facing Seattle for first time since NFC title game
Thursday night will be the first time that the 49ers and the Seahawks face each other since the NFC title game that saw the Seahawks win last year en route to the Super Bowl title. Colin Kaepernick claims that his interception with 30 seconds left in that game is well in the past, but one can’t help but think it is in the back of his mind heading into this game. Kaepernick is 1-2 in his career against the Seahawks.
On Thursday night, the 49ers and the Seahawks will collide for what should be another thrilling NFC West battle. We are going to drop 15 percent of our bankroll on Seattle and the OVER 40 total points scored at SportsBetting.ag as they move to 8-4 and put a ton of pressure on the Cardinals at the top of the standings.
