Odds from 

San Francisco is coming to the game here heavily favored and have only a lone loss on their home field. The Seahawks for their part have struggled on the road and in their last game barely squeaked by the Rams and had to rely on the Lions to make the playoffs. Look for the 49ers to get the win in this game and cover the spread, but the total will go on the under here as the 49ers get the win, but the total stays under as the 49ers are unable to put the total over on their own and the Seahawks cannot really move the ball against the 49ers defense.
