Betting market: Seattle has been hot as of late, but sharps are fading the Seahawks hard. The Niners are commanding just one-third of the spread bets, but three-quarters of the cash as of writing (see live odds here).

There has also been a reverse line move triggered on San Fran, which is a great indicator of sharp action.

Since opening, the Seahawks have fallen from -6.5 to -3.5 thanks to this pros vs. Joes split. Mark Gallant

Weather report: The forecast is currently calling for overcast conditions with 60 degree temps, which is pretty solid compared to the rest of the league. The average wind speed of 11 mph is a cause for concern, though … for over bettors.

Games have gone under more than 55% of the time with double-digit wind speeds, according to our Bet Labs data. Gallant

Trends to know: Seattle is 8-3-2 against the spread this season while San Francisco is 4-9 ATS.

In November or later, it’s been profitable to bet bad ATS teams that have covered 30% or less of games against good ATS teams that have covered 60% or more of games: 78-45-3 (63%) ATS. John Ewing
