San Fran +3.5 @ Seattle
Third time is a charm between these two hated rivals in the NFC West because the winner of this one goes to the Super Bowl A split on the season, one a blowout in here with Seattle winning hands down, and then a hard fought battle in San Fran where the Niners managed a 2 point win. A Battle of Titans here for lack a better term, but there are some clear cut keys here that have me thinking the wrong team is favored.
Look no further than the box score from last weeks New Orleans game for Seattle. The Saints had over 400 yards total, eclipsing the Seahawks 277 yards. Amazing the Hawks has just 13 first downs in that game, and the Saints had 25. Seattle's offense has sputtered their last 4 games, and they rely on trick plays in many spots to make big plays, and their downfield passing game is average at best.
The value in the line is the hook, over 3 points here in what should be a great game. San Fran built to win championships, good QB, good coach, stout defense with good LB's and a pass rush, a great running game, awesome tight end playmaker and 2 WR's who could start for anyone. All the elements make them the better team. San Fran also has experience in this spot, and Kaepernick is 4-1 as a starter in the post season.
I am very aware of Seattle's home field advantage, the biggest in the NFL, but the 12th man does not play the game and I see value in this line on the dog. I would almost sprinkle a little on the moneyline here with San Fran as well.
Pro Pick - San Fran
