49ers vs Seahawks NFC Championship Game Betting Preview

Published on January 18th, 2014 4:23 pm EST
The San Francisco 49ers will travel to Seattle to take on the Seahawks in the NFC Championship game this Sunday.

For many people, San Francisco vs Seattle is the battle between the two best teams left in the playoffs. The Seattle Seahawks have one of the most balanced teams in the league and are extremely hard to beat at home, while the 49ers are arguably the hottest team in the NFL at the moment. Add in the fact that both teams legitimately dislike each other and you have the potential for a classic battle.

One of the biggest X factors in this game is Colin Kaepernick's ability to deal with the crowd noise in Seattle. In San Francisco's last two trips to Seattle, Kaepernick has been flustered by the noise and has succumbed to frustration. As a matter of fact, the entire 49ers team has been unable to cope with the noise or the pressure, as they have been blown out in Seattle twice in a row.


Let's take a look at the odds for Sunday's game:

San Francisco 49ers, +3.5, -110
Seattle Seahawks, -3.5, -110

Over/Under Line

Over 40 points, -110
Under 40 points, -110

Money Line

San Francisco 49ers, +165
Seattle Seahawks, -185

According to these odds, Seattle is the slight favorite to win.


This should be a tight, hard hitting game between two teams that legitimately don't like each other. I can't wait.
