The Line: San Francisco 49ers +5.5 -- Over/Under: 41.5
The Seattle Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers meet Thursday night at Levi's Stadium.
The Seattle Seahawks look for their first road victory of the year to snap back-to-back losses. Russell Wilson is completing 68.9 percent of his passes for 1,433 yards, seven touchdowns and three interceptions. Wilson has four touchdown passes in his last four games. Jimmy Graham and Doug Baldwin have combined for 635 receiving yards and four touchdowns while Jermaine Kearse has 18 receptions. The Seattle Seahawks ground game is averaging 137.8 yards per contest, and Thomas Rawls leads the way with 334 yards and one touchdown. Defensively, Seattle is allowing 20.8 points and 319.5 yards per game. K.J. Wright leads the Seahawks with 45 tackles, Bruce Irvin has 3.5 sacks and Earl Thomas has two interceptions. Marcus Burley, Jordan Hill and Bobby Wagner are questionable.
The San Francisco 49ers look to string together back-to-back victories for the first time this season. Colin Kaepernick is completing 62.9 percent of his passes for 1,329 yards, six touchdowns and five interceptions. Kaepernick has four touchdown passes in his last two games. Anquan Boldin and Torrey Smith have combined for 656 receiving yards and four touchdowns while Garrett Celek has 14 receptions. The San Francisco 49ers ground game is averaging 118.3 yards per contest, and Carlos Hyde leads the way with 430 yards and three touchdowns. Defensively, San Fran is allowing 26.7 points and 409 yards per game. NaVorro Bowman leads the 49ers with 59 tackles, Aaron Lynch has three sacks and Tramaine Brock has two sacks. Brandon Thomas and Reggie Bush are questionable.
The Seahawks are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 Thursday games and 1-6-1 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The 49ers are 9-2 ATS in their last 11 games in October and 0-4-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. NFC West. The Seahawks are 6-0-1 ATS in their last 7 meetings.
The 49ers are starting to turn the corner a bit, as they outplayed the Giants on the road a couple of weeks ago and simply dominated the Ravens last week. San Fran is looking like a solid team as of late. Meanwhile, the Sehawks have some major issues on the offensive side of the ball. The Seahawks can't protect at all.
On a short week and the fact Seattle hasn't won a road game yet, I'm taking the 49ers and the points.
