    Seattle Seahawks vs San Francisco 49ers

    NFL Betting Lines: The Seattle Seahawks are 11-1 and have the best record in the NFL but they are underdogs on Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers. The Seattle Seahawks can wrap up the NFC West and clinch a first round bye in the playoffs if they can win this game on Sunday. It won’t be easy as they have lost their last four meetings at San Francisco. It is also a huge game for the San Francisco 49ers as they have no margin for error if they want to make the playoffs in the NFC.

    Let’s look at the matchup and NFL predictions.

    Seattle Seahawks 11-1 SU, 8-4 ATS

    The Seattle Seahawks need to just win two of their remaining four games to wrap up the top seed in the NFC and home field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs. “We want to win this division, and that division gets us a chance to play at home, and that's what we're after.” head coach Pete Carroll said, “And then we'll talk about what comes next." The Seattle Seahawks have beaten the San Francisco 49ers in the last two meetings but both of those games were in Seattle. It has been a different story in San Francisco as they have been outscored 109-54 in their last four meetings.

    San Francisco 49ers 8-4 SU, 9-3 ATS

    The San Francisco 49ers have a one game lead for the last Wild Card spot in the NFC so they have no margin for error. The team really has no shot to win the NFC West but they definitely want to win this game on Sunday against their division rival. "You definitely want to come out and play well, at home, and show everybody what we can do against a really good team," fullback Bruce Miller said. "Right now, our goal is to finish out the year and keep winning games and get to the postseason."
