(285) San Francisco vs. Seattle (286)
PICK: pinnacle @ -12 SEA (-107)
DATE: September 17, 2017 - 4:25 PM
STAR RATING: 10.0
EXPERT: Ben Burns
EVALUATION: Loss (-1070) - Final Score SF 9 at SEA 12
I'm playing on SEATTLE. The 49ers are in the wrong place, at the wrong time. The Hawks are much stronger on both sides of the ball, more experienced and (arguably) better coached. This is their home opener, their stadium arguably representing the most "hostile environment" (for visiting teams) in the league. The 49ers were outclassed 23-3 in their opener and that was at home. While the 49ers are 1-4 ATS (0-5 SU) the last five times that they were listed as road underdogs in the 10.5 to 14 range, the Hawks are 11-7 ATS (17-1 SU) the last 18 times that they were listed as home favorites in the -10.5 to -14 range. Hawks won 37-18 here last season and 29-13 the previous year. This one could easily be an even bigger rout.
