San Francisco 49ers Analysis

The 49ers’ offense has been an exciting blend of efficiency and dynamism this season thanks to quarterback Brock Purdy. Boasting an outstanding 70.2% completion rate with 18 touchdowns against 5 interceptions, Purdy has been an instrumental piece of their success in passing game. His connection with wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk who boasts 831 receiving yards and four touchdowns has proven particularly potency; on the ground, Christian McCaffrey has proven himself as an equally versatile threat both rushing and passing.

On defense, San Francisco still needs work – particularly on the road where they have struggled so far this season. Their pass defense must take note of Seahawks aerial threats while their front seven must step up and contain Seattle’s rushing attack. San Francisco must apply pressure early and disrupt Seattle’s offensive rhythm – something they have had limited success at doing in past matchups.

Seattle Seahawks Analysis

Offensively, the Seahawks have found an effective leader in Geno Smith. His 65.3% completion rate and 11 touchdowns are admirable; his 7 interceptions show where 49ers may exploit him. Kenneth Walker III leads their rushing attack with 595 yards and six touchdowns while offering a balanced threat compared to opponents like 49ers. In terms of receivers, DK Metcalf stands out among them but others must contribute in order to diversify their attack plan.

Defense has been the cornerstone of Seattle’s success at home and they must maintain it to maintain their winning streak at Lumen Field. Their ability to limit opponents’ scoring opportunities and perform in clutch situations has been crucial in their success; however, against San Francisco’s multidimensional offense they will face a challenging test that requires them to limit big plays while forcing turnovers in order to gain an edge.

San Francisco 49ers vs. Seattle Seahawks Against the Spread

The 49ers have struggled against the spread (ATS) in recent games, going 1-4 in their last 5 matchups. However, their overall record of 16-4 SU in the last 20 games shows their ability to win. Against Seattle, they have a mixed bag, with a 4-2 ATS record in the last 6 encounters but a concerning 5-15 SU record in their last 20 games against the Seahawks. Particularly concerning is their 2-10 SU record in their last 12 games at Lumen Field.

On the other hand, Seattle’s recent home form has been impressive, with a 6-1 SU record in their last 7 home games. They have also been strong ATS, especially against NFC opponents, going 5-1 in their last 6 games in this context. The total going UNDER in 5 of Seattle’s last 7 games, and 5 of their last 6 against NFC West opponents, indicates a trend towards lower-scoring games, which could be crucial in this matchup.
