I’m backing the under here. Normally this season, unders in primetime have been really profitable, and while Seattle’s had success lately, we might see a banged up Geno Smith or Drew Lock under center and that’s not good news for a Seattle team that scored just 14.3 PPG last season against the 49ers in 3 games. San Fran may have a solid game as well, but I’m just not expecting a ton of points here. Give me the under.
