Football betting on Sunday includes an NFC West rivalry game as the Seattle Seahawks host the San Francisco 49ers.
It is a key game for San Francisco as they try and get closer to Arizona in the division. This game is expected to be close as the NFL betting odds are a pick with a total of 41.5.
Football betting has the 49ers at 5-6 but still with a chance in the division. If the 49ers get a win this week against Seattle and Arizona loses against the Vikings then San Francisco would be right back in the hunt. Sunday’s game between the 49ers and Seahawks will be the 22nd meeting between the two teams, with the Seahawks holding an 11-10 advantage in the series. Earlier this season, Frank Gore rushed for 207 yards and two touchdowns against Seattle as the 49ers won 23-10 in football betting. In the past seven games against Seattle, Gore has averaged 160 yards from scrimmage and has scored four TDs. San Francisco has won six of the eleven all-time meetings at Seattle against the Seahawks.
Last week in NFL betting the 49ers rolled over Jacksonville 20-3 as the 49ers defense forced two turnovers and posted six sacks. The offense was solid with quarterback Alex Smith going 27 of 41 for 232 yards and two touchdowns in the football betting victory. The Seahawks have had a poor season even with a healthy Matt Hasselbeck and those that have bet on Seattle have continually been disappointed.
San Francisco is unbeaten against the football betting odds in their last five road games as they are 3-0-2. San Francisco has been very good in divisional games in NFL betting. The 49ers are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 vs. the NFC West.
Seattle has been solid at home in football betting. The Seahawks are 5-2-1 ATS in their last 8 home games. Overall though, Seattle is 3-7 ATS in their last 10 football betting games. They are also only 2-6 in football betting in their last 8 vs. the NFC.
The last four San Francisco divisional games have gone under in football betting. Four of the last five Seattle games overall have gone over in NFL betting. Seven of the last eleven Seattle home games have gone under the football betting odds. In this football betting series, five of the last seven have gone under.
