Seahawks vs 49ers Final NFL Betting Analysis

San Francisco upset a hot team on the moneyline in Week 14, but the same shouldn’t happen on Dec. 16. Seattle’s playing too well for the 49ers to keep this one close. Although that’s true, a quick check of the starts reveals that while San Francisco has lost a lot of games this season, the defense has mightily improved.

The 49ers only allow 107.8 rushing yards and 235.2 passing yards per. If Mullens doesn’t turn over the football, San Francisco should play the Seahawks much tougher at home than they did in the road loss. San Francisco’s not a great football team. They can carry the momentum they gained versus the Broncos to keep this one close, though.

NFL Week 15 Pick: 49ers +6.5
