Why bet on the Seattle Seahawks
It was a tense Sunday night for the Seahawks last weekend, as they needed the Green Bay Packers to lose to the Detroit Lions in the final week of the regular season. That is what happened, with the Seahawks now in as the #7 seed. It was a spot that few people expected them to be in, as most though that starting the year with Geno Smith under center was going to make for a long season. Smith delivered the goods, though, and is a huge part of why Seattle is playing beyond the end of the regular season. On a positive note, the Seahawks are 15-4 SU in their last 19 meetings with the 49ers, but that is where the good stuff ends. They are 1-7 ATS in their last 8 games overall, and also 0-5 ATS in their last 5 conference matchups. The Seahawks have seen 5 of their last 7 road games go OVER the point total.
Why bet on the San Francisco 49ers
This has been a strange kind of season for the 49ers. They started the season with Trey Lance as their starting QB, but they were forced to switch to Jimmy G after Lance went out for the season, Garoppolo was quick to follow with a season-ending injury, leaving Brock Purdy as the starter. Chosen last in the draft, Purdy was something of a forgotten man, but he has been brilliant since taking over, and the 49ers are now coming into the playoffs on a truly impressive 10-game win streak. Not only are the 49ers winning, but they are also proving to be a great bet for bettors choosing them to cover, as they have gone 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games. They have also covered in each of their last 7 conference games. They have seen the OVER hit in 5 of their last 6 games.
Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction
There is always the chance of an upset once you get to this stage of the season, but I really don’t see it happening here. I like the 49ers to continue rolling and I think they come away with the comfortable win. I am taking the 49ers ATS, plus I also like the OVER.
