Football gambling disappointment is huge in San Francisco as the 49ers have failed to live up to preseason expectations with the football betting odds.
The revenge seeking San Francisco 49ers will host the Seattle Seahawks in a NFC West Division matchup that will be telecast on FOX with a start time of 4:10 PM ET. Sports Gambling opened with San Francisco as a 4.5 point favorite and with a total of 41.
Seattle beat San Francisco 31-6 on opening day as 3 point home dogs and the 49ers never recovered from that setback.
Seattle has a NFL gambling record of 6-6 both straight up and with the spread while going under the total in just 3 of their 12 games. Seattle is tied for first place in the NFC West Division with the St. Louis Rams and is coming off a 31-14 home payout over the Carolina Panthers for just their 2nd straight up win in their last 6 games.
Seattle has gone over the total 5 consecutive games. Seattle ranks 28th in the NFL for total offense and an even worse 30th for total defense in a classic case of winning with mirrors. New coach Pete Carroll did bring enthusiasm and a new attitude that has proven to be the difference.
San Francisco has a betting on NFL football record of 4-8 straight up and against the spread with just 5 of their games going under the total. The 49ers lost at Green Bay last week 34-16. San Francisco ranks 30th in the NFL for points scored on offense but a respectable 11th for defense.
The season has been a disaster for San Francisco as they were the favorite to win the NFC West but have proven to be a pretender. It is especially frustrating for the organization and their fans in such a down year for the weak NFC West Division.
Although San Francisco is out of the post season football gambling race they would love to do damage to the Seahawks team that did so much damage to their season on opening day. Seattle struggles for everything that they get so anything less than a top effort and full focus could cost them in this one.
