With the 49ers hosting the Seahawks in a Week 4 NFC West showdown, Niner Noise explores some fun prop bets from the folks over at WynnBET.
The San Francisco 49ers look to rebound from a tough Week 3 Sunday Night Football loss against the Green Bay Packers. To do so, the Niners will have to upend their NFC West division rivals, the 1-2 Seattle Seahawks, in what is projected to be a decisive matchup between these two teams in the NFL’s toughest division.
The oddsmakers over at WynnBET currently list San Francisco as a 2.5-point favorite, a spread awfully close considering quarterback Russell Wilson, whose Seahawks have lost two straight, has never lost three games in a row despite facing that challenge 10 times in his career.
Considering the 49ers’ own concerns about their secondary, namely at quarterback, it’s possible Sunday’s contest turns into a high-flying affair. Especially with Seattle having surrendered more yards (1,321) than any other team in the league through three weeks.
49ers vs. Seahawks odds favor a touchdown as first score of the game
If you’re looking to place bets on how the first points from this Week 4 matchup are scored, the favorite is by the way of a touchdown.
Currently, WynnBET has a touchdown favored to be the first score of the game with -220 odds, trailed by a field goal at +160.
If you want to be bold, you could go for a safety as being the first score of the game. But those odds are long at +4,500.
49ers over/under point totals for Week 4
WynnBET has the over/under for the game at 52.0, and it might be a safe bet to go with the over, considering both the Seahawks’ defensive struggles and the fact the Niners have given up 30-plus points in two of their three games already this season.
If you’re looking to score on San Francisco’s point totals for the game only, though, take a look at the 49ers-only over/under betting line, which is set at 27.5.
- Over 27.5: -110
- Under 27.5: -120
The Niners do have the league’s ninth-best scoring offense this season, so targeting the over could be the smart play based on those results and Seattle’s permeable defense.
San Francisco and Seattle kick off on Sunday, Oct. 3 at 4:05 p.m. ET from Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California.
