The most watched game of the day is also going to be the most bet game of the day. I think it's safe to say everyone is looking forward to this match-up, especially those of us who love great defense. Let's take a closer look at what the betting angles are.
Before Week 15, Vegas had the 49ers as -2 point favorites in this game. Despite a statement win in Foxboro, the Seahawks re-opened as -1 point favorites on Sunday. Not much has changed during the week either, but there has been some late money on Seattle today. You can find Seattle at -1, but some books have them as high as -3, too (odds from SBRforum). That is kind of surprising because the 49ers are sure to be popular teaser choices at anything above +1.5. Normally when I like a short favorite, I tell people to grab them at anything under -3, but given how tight this could be, I suggest to get the best number possible. Laying more than -1 could come into the equation here.
