Point total: 46.5
Moneyline: 49ers -170, Seahawks +150
Our picks for 49ers vs. Seahawks
Pick against the spread: 49ers, -3.5
Seattle is just 1-4 at home this season (2-3 against the spread) while San Francisco is 4-0 on the road. There’s no doubt that the absence of Deebo Samuel will affect the Niners, but the Seahawks’ offense looks broken from stem to stern right now, Jimmy Garoppolo has played safe and sound football recently, committing just two turnovers in his past five games. He should keep that up against a defense that has only three takeaways in its previous five games.
Over/under: Over 46.5
And yet, even with the offensive concerns on both sides, the over feels like the better bet here because of history. These teams have exceded this total in each of their previous seven meetings. Six of the 49ers’ past eight games this season have surpassed 46.5 total points.
Preferred player prop: D.K. Metcalf anytime scorer (+150)
The 49ers have allowed only two receiving touchdowns to wideouts in their past five games (both by Adam Thielen in Week 12), but Metcalf is going to have his chances to score this week. Quarterback Russell Wilson stressed after Monday’s loss to Washington that Metcalf needs to get the ball more often. One of the game’s best red-zone and big-play threats out wide, except Metcalf to be peppered with targets, especially whenever Seattle gets close to the end zone. When these teams met in Week 4, one of Metcalf’s four catches was a 12-yard TD.
