1-Star Best Bet – *SEATTLE (-3 Even) over San Francisco

San Francisco closed as an underdog of 3 points last week in New England and now we’re seeing the same number in Seattle. That is way too much of an overreaction, especially with All-Pro safety Jamal Adams potentially back in the lineup for Seattle. The Seahawks are a bare minimum 3 points better than the Patriots and we think the gap is much higher.

Tyler Lockett had 200 receiving yards and three touchdowns last week and he will have a chance to build on that this week. San Francisco nickelback Jamar Taylor’s two interceptions masked his poor performance last Sunday. The Patriots targeted Taylor on 12 passes and he allowed 8 receptions for 129 yards. Taylor is conceding 1.90 yards per slot cover snap filling in for the injured K’Waun Williams – although there is a chance Williams returns this week. I expect Russell Wilson to bounce-back after throwing three interceptions last Monday night in Arizona.

Kyle Shanahan has done a masterful job designing play to help out his quarterback since the week 5 debacle against Miami. Jimmy Garoppolo used play action on 61.5% of his dropbacks last Sunday, the second-highest rate in a game over the last 5 seasons. No quarterback has had a higher percentage of their passing yards come after the catch than Garoppolo (68%) this season and I do not think it is sustainable. Garoppolo is averaging 9.1 yards per attempt on passes thrown behind the line of scrimmage, which is by far the highest mark over the past three years and is something that is likely to regress downwards. The Seahawks have the 2nd-best rush defense by our numbers so Shanahan will have to continue scheming up easy throws for Garoppolo for the 49ers to be successful in this game but that is unlikely against a divisional opponent that is more familiar with the Niners’ offensive schemes.

Our model favors the Seahawks by 5.5 points with Adams playing and by 4.4 points if Adams is out again (predicted total of 55.2 points). There is value on Seattle and the situation strongly favors the Seahawks. Seattle applies to a 93-35-4 ATS bounce-back situation based on last week’s upset loss and the Niners apply to a 39-101-3 ATS road letdown situation based on last week’s easy win. Seattle is a 1-Star Best Bet at -3 at -110 odds or better.
