The NFC’s No. 1 seed comes down to this matchup.
A 49ers win would lock it in. A Seahawks win would open it up for another team.
With the stakes in mind, our experts reveal how they’re betting Sunday Night Football, featuring Sean Koerner’s and Matthew Freedman’s spread picks as well as Koerner’s prop of the game.
Sean Koerner: Seahawks +3.5
The Seahawks come into this high-stakes game incredibly thin at running back. They recently lost Rashaad Penny to IR then Chris Carson (and even C.J. Prosise) just last week, forcing them to bring back Marshawn Lynch and Robert Turbin.
The loss of Carson hurts, but it would be unwise for the market to make this cluster injury worth more than one point. It’s all going to fall on Russell Wilson’s shoulders, and as the likely MVP runner-up, he should be up to the task.
