NFL Football Betting Odds:
The Seahawks fly into this Week 15 matchup sporting an 8-5 record that ranks them 2nd in the NFC West. Since the 11-2 Rams have already locked up the division, Seattle has to settle for a Wild Card berth this season. Fortunately they’re currently the frontrunners to claim a Wild Card berth. On top of that, Seattle should be able to take care of San Francisco this weekend. After all, they whomped on the Niners 43-16 just two weeks ago. Entering his Sunday’s contest riding a 4-game winning streak, it’s pretty clear that the Seahawks should have no problems taking care of San Fran.
Players to Watch: Russell Wilson (2,788 passing yards, 29 TD, 6 INT), Chris Carson (794 rushing yards, 5 TD, 3 F), and Tyler Lockett (755 receiving yards, 9 TD, 49 REC).
San Francisco 49ers
The Niners step into this weekend’s matchup sporting a meager 3-10 record that pegs them dead last in the NFC West. Nevertheless, San Francisco still managed to upset the Denver Broncos 20-14 this past weekend. Now the 49ers look to upset an even more relevant target in this Week 15 matchup. Looking over the numbers however, it’s evident that the 49ers will have a much harder time taking care of Seattle. Right now the Seahawks are averaging 26.2 per game while the 49ers are scoring 21.2. Ultimately they were able to outscore Denver because the Broncos don’t have much of an offense. The Seahawks on the other hand, don’t fit that bill.
Players to Watch: Nick Mullens (1,479 passing yards, 9 TD, 6 INT), Matt Breida (744 rushing yards, 3 TD, 1 F), and George Kittle (1,103 receiving yards, 4 TD, 69 REC).
