The NFC West champion Seattle Seahawks look to halt a two-game road losing streak when they visit the San Francisco 49ers in their regular season finale at Levi's Stadium. The 49ers improved to 2-13 last week with their second win of the campaign over the Los Angeles Rams, a 22-21 victory as 5.5-point road underdogs, but are winless in six at home.
The 9-5-1 Seahawks have struggled on the road this season, going 2-4-1 straight up and 3-4 against the spread, including a stunning 38-10 loss in Green Bay as 3-point chalk three weeks ago. Points have been scarce for Seattle in road games this season, with the Seahawks producing 10 or fewer points on four occasions this season.
San Francisco's win over the Rams halts a 13-game SU slide, and also marks just their third ATS win of the campaign. The 49ers are winless SU and ATS in six straight at home, surrendering 30 or more points on four occasions, and losing by an average margin of 12.5 points over that stretch.
Seattle has dominated the Niners in recent years, posting SU wins in eight of nine meetings, including decisive wins in its past two in San Francisco. The Seahawks have also covered in 11 straight against San Francisco, holding the 49ers to just 11.6 ppg during that run.
