The Seahawks are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 meetings in San Francisco and 13-4-1 ATS in their last 18 meetings.
The Seattle Seahawks are playing some of their best football at the moment and have allowed 17 or less points in each of their last five games. The San Francisco 49ers are coming off a surprise win over the Cardinals, but they've been dreadful at home this season and have failed to cover six of their last eight games overall. The Seattle Seahawks are still playing for a top-two seed and have won eight of the last 10 meetings against the 49ers. Assuming the Seahawks play their starters for the best possible seed, I'll take them by a touchdown here.
