The Seahawks are the choice of many NFL betting experts to win the NFC West yet again although the 49ers do look improved this season.
Football betting stats show that not much went right for San Francisco last season. The team was last in the league in total offense according to NFL betting stats and 25th in total defense according to football betting numbers. The team brought in Mike Martz as their new offensive coordinator and J.T. O’Sullivan takes over at quarterback. The key will be getting O’Sullivan to make the key plays to take pressure off of Frank Gore. The defense should be better as there is still a lot of talent on that side of the ball. This is a key game for the 49ers to test how far they have come. If they get routed, as expected by the Seahawks, then the heat on head coach Mike Nolan is going to go up.
Seattle is expected to win this game easily according to football betting experts but the Seahawks still have injuries in the receiving corps and the offense has not been as potent as in year’s past. Last year they were 9th overall in the league according to NFL betting stats and even though Matt Hasselbeck still looks good, overall the offense looks weaker.
Football betting stats show that San Francisco has held their own at Seattle in recent seasons. They are 4-5 both straight up and against the NFL betting pointspread in their last nine trips to Seattle. Six of those nine games have gone over the football betting total. The 49ers have been pretty solid on the road within the division according to football betting information. They are 6-3 versus the football betting number in their last nine games. 15 of the last 24 road games for the 49ers have gone over the football betting total. The Seahawks are 7-2 versus the football betting number in their last nine divisional home games. 16 of the last 28 Seattle home games have gone under the total according to football betting stats.
