Against the Spread Pick

The biggest game of the Week 17 slate here as the Seattle Seahawks host the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday Night Football. The winner of this one takes home the NFC West title, and if the 49ers win then they clinch the top seed in the NFC. Seattle just re-signed Marshawn Lynch and while that's a nice story, it's not going to matter too much here. The Seahawks are really banged up at the moment, and they're going to be without starting left tackle Duane Brown in addition to all their running backs. I've been saying for a while this Seattle team is massively overrated, and they've proved me right the last few weeks. Three games ago they got smoked by a mediocre Rams team, and just this past week they lost by 14 at home to the Cardinals even with Kyler Murray getting hurt. The 49ers are the more complete team, and the better-coached team, so I'm laying the points all day long.

Over Under Pick

I also like the over in this spot. Both sides have been banged up on defense, and I think we could see somewhat of a shootout develop. With all of their running backs on injured reserve, Seahawks offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer might finally be forced to abandon the run and set Russell Wilson free. Seattle's defense is pretty terrible, and they've given up at least 24 points in six of their last seven games, but oddsmakers still haven't caught up yet. When these teams played each other earlier this season we saw 51 total points scored, and I think we see even more here. San Francisco put up 34 on the Rams last week, and I'm really high on their offense.
