49ers open up as 11.5-point favorites over the Seahawks for Week 14

Playing a team twice in three weeks could be tricky

The 49ers have been the cover kings since their bye week. Four straight wins and four straight covers, all by convincing margin. Most of us, outside of one writer who shall go unnamed, predicted the Niners to beat the Eagles by double-digits.

Well, this week, oddsmakers believe the 49ers will beat the Seattle Seahawks in a similar fashion as they did on Thanksgiving. San Francisco has been installed as an 11.5-point favorite of Seattle for Week 14 with the total on the game set at 46 on DraftKings Sportsbook.

The Niners were favored by seven with the total of 42 just two weeks ago. But two convincing victories in a row where Brock Purdy and the offense scored often and with ease have driven the point spread as well as the total up.

This is not the 49ers of yesteryear. This offense has little trouble putting points on the scoreboard. But, in the same way last week was for the Eagles, this could be a bit of a letdown spot for the Niners. Well, maybe that’s next week since this is a rivalry game and Seattle is still in the playoff picture.

Either way, this has to be the largest spread between these two teams in a long, long time. And based on everything we’ve seen from each team, it’s tough to argue.
