San Francisco has already beaten Seattle twice this season, but the Geno Smith led Seahawks scratched and clawed their way into the postseason and another meeting with the 49ers.

Brock Purdy vs. Geno Smith is not a playoff matchup we thought we’d be getting at the beginning of the season, but here we are.

The Niners are 9.5 point favorites, but for now we aren’t worried about betting a side, we’re looking for anytime touchdown scorer bets.

We’re hunting some juicy plus signs with this, so here are my three favorites for the first game of Super Wild Card weekend.

Best anytime TD scorer picks for Seahawks vs. 49ers

  • George Kittle +155
  • Tyler Lockett +330
  • Ray-Ray McCloud +800

George Kittle +155

This is an obvious bet to place and it feels like stealing, getting Kittle at plus odds right now. He’s been on an absolute heater the past month.

He had seven touchdowns in the 49ers final four regular season games. That includes a two touchdown game against these Seahawks. Brock Purdy loves going to him in the red zone and when things get tighter in the playoffs he’ll turn to his reliable tight end even more.

Tyler Lockett +330

Two weeks ago, the 49ers No. 1 ranked defense had serious trouble with Davante Adams. That game was a bit of an aberration, but I think Lockett should have success this week.

DK Metcalf gets the most attention, but Lockett is the better receiver and has better odds. In two games against San Fran this year he had 16 catches on 20 targets for 176 yards, but no touchdowns.

Another 10 targets and he’ll have to find the end zone.

Ray-Ray McCloud +800

I really like San Francisco against the spread this week, I think it should win this game handily and that means Kyle Shanahan might get a little creative.

Last week, Tutu Atwell, the gadget receiver for the LA Rams scored a 15-yard rushing touchdown on a reverse. Seattle is susceptible to that type of misdirection because Jordyn Brooks is out for the year and he was the team’s sideline-to-sideline middle linebacker.

This is a longshot, but it’s worth a look for a big payout. McCloud has two touchdowns on the year including a 71-yard touchdown run against Washington in Week 16.
