Bodoglife.com Spread: 49ers -1; Over/Under 39.5; Money Line: No money line b/c of how close the matchup is - The oddsmakers definitely recognize how close this matchup is. When setting the line, a home team automatically gets 3 points. So, if not for home field, the oddsmakers would be slightly favoring the Seahawks. Naturally I'll take the 49ers and the under (if slightly).

49ers Stat of the Day: Today the 49ers can get to 2-0 within their division for the first time since 2002.
The 49ers started off strong with a big road victory over the defending NFC Champs, the Arizona Cardinals. This week, the 49ers have an equally huge matchup with another NFC West rival, the Seattle Seahawks. A win puts the 49ers in first place and gets some them serious buzz. A loss doesn't kill things, but definitely is a setback. So we all know what we want this afternoon!
