49ers game today vs. Seahawks: Injury report, spread, over/under, schedule, live stream, TV channel
By Peter Panacy
The 49ers look to make it four wins in a row, but they’ll have to knock off the struggling Seahawks in Week 13 to make that happen.
The San Francisco 49ers would love nothing more than to continue the Seattle Seahawks‘ misery in 2021, especially after years of the Hawks essentially doing just that to the Niners.
At 3-8 and in the No. 15 spot in the NFC playoff picture, Seattle’s chances of making the postseason are all but done, and even a miraculous push to get back into the dance would take a lot of things falling into place with elements well out of its own control.
Still, despite losing three games in a row, the Seahawks would take pleasure in putting a dent into San Francisco’s own playoff aspirations, and doing so in front of a home crowd at Lumen Field presents that opportunity.
That said, the 49ers have been dominating the time-of-possession battle as of late, nearing 40 minutes’ possession time during their three-game win streak, while the Hawks rank dead last in the league in this category with an average non-overtime possession mark of just 24:09.
If the Niners want to continue both trends, it’ll have to be done without one of their top offensive weapons, wide receiver Deebo Samuel.
49ers injury report vs. Seahawks Week 13
Samuel’s injury, a groin strain suffered in Week 12’s win over the Minnesota Vikings, isn’t expected to be serious. But that’s not the only concern ahead of this NFC West bout stemming from San Francisco’s injury report:
- LB Dre Greenlaw (groin): OUT
- WR Deebo Samuel (groin): OUT
- RB Trey Sermon (ankle): OUT
- LB Fred Warner (hamstring): Doubtful
- DL Maurice Hurst (calf): OUT
- LB Marcell Harris (concussion): Questionable
The Niners are likely going to be awfully thin at linebacker with both Greenlaw and Warner nursing injuries suffered last week, too, putting more pressure on third-year pro Azeez Al-Shaair to continue his notable play this season.
The depth behind him, though, is questionable at best.
49ers vs. Seahawks odds, spread, over/under & betting pick Week 13
Despite the concerns with Samuel, Warner and Greenlaw, Seattle’s struggles with extending offensive drives still play right into the hands of what San Francisco will want to do.
So, it shouldn’t be too big a surprise the oddsmakers over at WynnBET list the Niners as three-point road favorites in this contest, somewhat of a shocker considering they’ve won only once in Seattle since 2011, but this Week 13 showdown features an entirely different context than the one seen in many of those previous matchups.
San Francisco’s moneyline for the game is -165, while the Seahawks are at +145. The over/under for the game is 45.0.
Given the trajectories and recent trends for both teams, let’s call out the Niners both winning outright and covering the spread, a 27-20 victory for the road favorites.
