The Seahawks and the 49ers are both going to be in the thick of the fight this year for the Super Bowl, as they are two of the three favorites to win it all. The two teams are going to be involved in what should be a great game in Week 3, especially knowing that Seattle hasn’t been beaten at home since Christmas Eve 2011 (against these 49ers, no less). We can go over all of the ATS stats that you want at this point. The Seahawks have covered 10 of their last 11 against teams with winning records. They’ve covered over two thirds of their home games over the course of the last seven and change seasons. San Francisco is winless ATS in its last four games against NFC West foes.
In the end though, this is a game that is going to be won by San Francisco. We really don’t like the fact that the Seahawks just couldn’t run the football at all against the Carolina Panthers last week, and we also love the fact that QB Colin Kaepernick showed that he can put the ball in the air for over 400 yards and three TDs in a game if he really needs to. On top of that, there’s still no DE Bruce Irvin for the Seahawks, as he is suspended for this game, and DB Brandon Browner has yet to suit up this year either. Even if Browner goes, is he really going to be able to match up with WR Anquan Boldin, who had 200 receiving yards in his debut with San Fran? In the end, we’re buying the 49ers more than we are buying the Seahawks at this point, and we think that there is an upset in the cards on Sunday Night Football.
