NFL: Betting Predictions Seattle Seahawks at San Francisco 49ers
This Sunday at 1:15 PM Eastern, the Seattle Seahawks take on the San Francisco 49ers who will be playing at home Candlestick Park. BetDSI.eu Candlestick Park. BetDSI.eu http://betdsi.com/live-lines/football currently have the San Francisco 49ers a heavy favorite at -250 over the Seattle Seahawks at +210.
The San Francisco 49ers offense have been among the worst in the league in their preseason this year tallying per game averages of an anemic 11 points (30th), 256 total yards (31st), a 108 passing yards (WTF 108?!?! they rush for more a game) , and 147 rushing yards good for (3rd) in the NFL. Looks like 49ers will be running alot this year as their QB play has been nothing short of horrendous. QB Alex Smith is the starter and did not manage to throw a single TD pass in the preseason on 20 completions out of 36 attempts totaling only 198 yards good for a whopping 5.5 yards per an attempt and 2 interceptions. There are running backs in the NFL with that kind of yardage per an attempt, for instance 49ers RB Kendal Hunter ran amuck this preseason to the tune of 231 yards on 35 attempts good for an insane 6.6 yards per carry.
The 49ers defense has not been much better than their offense with the exception of getting to the QB 15 times this preseason, but when they don’t their secondary is bound to give up the big play. The 49ers have been out gained by their opponents in the passing yardage by a count of 435 to their opponents 730. LB Aldon Smith played like a beast this preseason tallying 19 tackles 3.5 sacks and a forced fumble. Other than that there really is not much to write home about, 49ers fans look to get beat in the passing game all year with this shaky secondary.
The Seattle Seahawks offense has been pedestrian this preseason earning per game averages of 17 points (21st), 301 total yards (19th), 188 passing yards (21st), and 112 rushing yards (18th). Seahawks starting QB Tavaris Jackson this preseason has thrown 32 completions on 55 attempts for 269 yards 1 TD and 2 INT for a terrible QB rating of 61.9. Seahawks backup QB Charlie Whitehurst has put much more respectable numbers however against 2nd team or worst defenses, and has looked very shaky in game almost nervous looking.
The Seahawks defense sacked the QB 11 times this preseason but their impressive stat is an insane 7 forced fumbles in the four game period. Last week against the Oakland Raiders the Seattle Seahawks defense held them to only 3 points never allowing them to get any offensive rhythm at all. DE Lazarius Levingston was probably their most disruptive player getting 7 tackles and 2.5 sacks.
My Prediction: To give any team (Seahawks) +5 1/2 points, or even any amount of points (this line may move) against one of the worst offenses in the league (49ers) just sounds like Vince Vaughn in the movie Swingers ” Your Money Baby, your so money you dont even know it ”. Also at +210 you can afford to give the Seahawks a shot in this one, a game they can most definitly win.
