We are already in the NFL postseason party, and only the best teams in the league are still alive pursuing a single goal: to lift the Vince Lombardi Trophy on February 12, 2023, in Super Bowl LVII, to be played in Arizona.
Everything is already defined, what happened in the regular season is already in the past, and now all the teams know that they are playing for their lives in the Wild Card games this weekend. Except for the Eagles and Chiefs, who are resting because they finished as the top seed of their respective conferences.
The Wild Card Round will start with the great game between the San Francisco 49ers and Seattle Seahawks next Saturday, January 14, 2023.
Being a divisional game, it is a series that has occurred many times in league history. In 49 games, the Seahawks dominate the series with a 30-19 record. However, the two meetings they played in the regular season were wins for the 49ers, 27-7 in August and 21-13 in December.
Saturday, January 14 at 04:30 PM ET at Levi’s Stadium
San Francisco 49ers -574
Seattle Seahawks +400

Why Bet on the 49ers
Despite losing their starting quarterback, Trey Lance, to injury and later his replacement, Jimmy Garoppolo, the San Francisco 49ers kept adding victories with the incredible emergence of rookie Brock Purdy.
Of course, the key to the team’s success lies in its spectacular defense, the perfect machinery designed by Kyle Shanahan, and playmakers of the caliber of Deebo Samuel, Christian McCaffrey, George Kittle, and Brandon Aiyuk.
So good has the 49er’s defense been that they led the regular season in virtually every league statistic. They averaged 16.3 points per game and, along with the Bills, were the only NFL teams to concede fewer than 300 total points.
Although their offense had some problems due to injuries to their quarterbacks, running back Christian McCaffrey managed to shred opposing defenses, and wide receiver George Kittle showed great effectiveness.
The 49ers finished the regular season as champions of the NFC West with an excellent 13-4 record and were only one game behind the Eagles, who were the top seed in the National Conference.
Why Bet on the Seahawks
On the other side are the surprising Seattle Seahawks, who, beyond going from better to worse during the season, nobody imagined they would be in the Playoffs after the summer trade of Russell Wilson.
But far from entering a rebuilding phase, Seattle found a very positive year from Geno Smith to take the last Wild Card spot in the NFC.
The Seahawks punched their ticket to the playoffs on Day 18 of the regular season after beating the Rams in an agonizing game that ended with a Jason Myers field goal in overtime.
The Seahawks are the least likely to lift the championship trophy of all the remaining teams, but anything can happen in the NFL playoffs.
There is no doubt that we have to highlight quarterback Geno Smith, who perfectly replaced Russell Wilson with 69.8% in pass completions and 30 touchdown passes.
Final Betting Analysis: San Francisco 49ers vs. Seattle Seahawks
It will be a good test for the 49ers’ youngster, Purdy, since he has only been in the NFL for six games, and the pressure is extreme in the playoffs.
On the other side, we have a very motivated Seahawks, with Geno Smith, who has replaced Russell Wilson very well, as this season he had more than 4,000 yards through the air.
At MyBookie.ag, we can see that there is a Moneyline that favors the 49ers at -574, while the Seahawks start at +400.
Likewise, we believe the 49ers will continue their dominance over the Seahawks this season and take the win. In addition, we suggest the SPREAD bet on the 49ers at -10.
Look for a straight win on the Moneyline San Francisco 49ers. If you put $100 on the 49ers at -574, you’ll be looking at a $17.42 win with a total payout of $117.42.
