Seahawks vs 49ers game
It is expected that the San Francisco 49ers will have their quarterback of choice Brock Purdy under center for their second game against the Seattle Seahawks in primetime. He was listed as doubtful ahead of the “Thursday night football” game following a limited during the week by oblique and an injury to the ribs sustained in week 14’s clash against their rivals, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Head Coach Kyle Shanahan stated earlier in the week that no definitive decisions would be made about Purdy’s status until the game, which is in less than four days Purdy will be back in the game. 49ers QB1 is expected to get back in the game.
Purdy will take his first step out on the road in Lumen Field, which has been repeatedly praised in the past week by Shanahan and veterans to be one of the most challenging arenas of the NFL.
“This is most likely the most hostile place you can experience,” Purdy said. “Either there or Arrowhead, which is why I’m so excited to be a part of the opportunity to play in it. The guys have played here many times. So, just listening to them, what’s great and what’s not of operation and communication. We’ll be ready to go.”
Purdy is following an impressive week 14 when Purdy, a rookie in the NFL, completed 16 of 21 passing for 185 yards and two touchdowns, and a scoring rushing score of his own in the game with Tampa Bay. Purdy became the first quarterback in the game this past weekend to make his first career appearance with Tom Brady and come away with a victory.
In addition, defense linebacker Kerry Hyder Jr. and cornerback Ambry Thomas are both listed as being questionable on the team’s most recent injury report for this week. They will be in the lineup for Thursday’s game.
The team also had six other players also ruled out Wednesday, including quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo (foot), defensive back Tarvarius Moore (knee) as well as Wide receiver Deebo Samuel (knee ankle), Kevin Givens (knee), and cornerback Samuel Womack III (concussion).
On Thursday afternoon, lineman defensive Hassan Ridgeway (pectoral) was placed on the Reserve Injured list. Also, the team promoted offensive lineman Akeem Spence to the active roster. They also activated cornerback Janoris Jenkins and wide receiver Willie Snead IV.
Here’s an overview of Thursday’s inactive for the game between the Seahawks and 49ers:
The 15th week of the NFL season kicks off on Thursday, with the NFC West matchup between the San Francisco 49ers (-3.5, 43.5) and Seattle Seahawks. Despite the numerous changes at quarterback, the 49ers (9-4) are winning six consecutive games and are in a position to secure the division by winning. They are 7-6. Seahawks (7-6) are losing three of their last four games. However, they remain in the playoff race.
What are we expecting from a bets perspective for Thursday’s game?
Analysts in betting Doug Kezirian, Tyler Fulghum, Joe Fortenbaugh, Anita Marks, and Erin Dolan; fantasy and sports betting experts Eric Moody and Andre Snellings as well as ESPN Stats and Info’s Seth Walder, ESPN analyst Jason Fitz, and Football Outsiders’ Aaron Schatz offer their top picks for the game.
Brock Purdy and the San Francisco 49ers (-3.5, 43.5) travel to Lumen Field on Thursday night to play Geno Smith, Geno Smith, and the Seattle Seahawks. What do you think of the spread and the total, and who do you expect to win?
Kezirian For The last few weeks, I’ve played as a Seattle back almost every week during the season. However, I’m currently with the team of Niners. Purdy was awe-inspiring, and evidently, certain plays were lucky. However, this post is more about the Seattle defense that is slow to finish the season. It ranks 22nd overall for defensive efficiency, but in the last five weeks, it has ranked fifth-lowest in the expected number of points added, despite playing the defensively challenged Bucs, Rams, and Panthers, as well as the Raiders.
Furthermore, there’s the fact that the Seahawks were coming off an exhausting game against Carolina, who forced them to catch up nearly all the way through, as San Francisco was essentially able to rest its starters during the final quarter in an utterly dominant victory. The Niners are fresher after this short week in the season and possess more defense, so I’ll bet on them to score points.
Schatz, If it were my choice to wager on this match, I’d take that Seahawks +3.5, but I’m not interested in that line shifts to -3, and I’m not keen on betting the total. Vegas is spot-on with this bet. The 49ers are fantastic and are currently the best group in Football Outsiders’ weighted DVOA; however, you have to put them down slightly due to both Purdy as a quarterback and the injury suffered by Deebo Samuel.
The Seahawks are, however, likely to be underrated. They’re still ranked as No. 11 on the adjusted DVOA and have a Top 10 offensive despite their poor overall performance during Week 14. Therefore, I’d go with the Seahawks if I score the half-point and stay away if I do not.
Marks, I’ll give you Seattle as well as scores. Yes, the Seahawks were beaten in three last four games, but they’ve won five of their previous six games. The 49ers are in a stalemate, and Purdy is suffering from an oblique strain in a short week of work — and is making his first appearance on the road. In actuality, the 49ers have enjoyed playing host to four of their last five matches (although one was in Mexico). The Seahawks average 24 points per match and have the offensive power to keep this game close. They should be able to defend using the hook.
Christian McCaffrey rushed for 119 yards and scored two touchdowns in the last game. San Francisco averaged nearly 6 yards per run and is now facing a Seahawks defense that is one of the worst at stopping the running. McCaffrey’s rushing prop is reported as 80.5 yards, while his reception yard props are 39.5. Would you like to see him surpass these numbers on Thursday night?
McCaffrey has 124.5 total yards rushing or receiving. McCaffrey is a highly dual threat, and it can be challenging to determine which direction the yards come from. He ran for 119 yards, with “only” 34 yards of receiving last week. However, McCaffrey had 80 receiving yards and just one rushing yard the week prior. He’s surpassed 124.5 totes in each game since Elijah Mitchell went down. My only concern regarding this particular week’s game is that McCaffrey has an injury-related designation. However, if he’s fit, then he’s likely to surpass.
Schatz will choose McCaffrey with a score of fewer than 80.5 yards rushing despite his 119-yard effort. McCaffrey was a little less than 80 yards earlier in four games. In actuality, he had less than 40 yards for three games. The games. Mitchell indeed played in fun, but Kyle Shanahan is not afraid to throw in Jordan Mason, who has recorded 50 yards in the last two games. The 49ers won’t have a chance to win this one, and they won’t have to spend the entire second period just slogging away the timer.
Dolan, The focus of my attention is McCaffrey in the vicinity of 17.5 rushes. Please look at this line because it is available less expensive in other publications. McCaffrey has surpassed the mark only in one of seven games played in his 49ers uniform. However, I’m betting he’ll reach this mark when he has hurt Samuel and the Seahawk’s defense, ranked 31st defensively against the run (allowing 160.5 yards of rushing every game).
The Seahawk’s defense has continued to fall behind throughout the entire season. Purdy impressed at the first start of his career. However, he threw the ball 21 times to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last Sunday. What is the reason for changing the game’s strategy? The ball is thrown. McCaffrey runs over his attempts to rumble.
Marks: I am awestruck by C-Mac’s over-on receiving yards. Samuel will likely miss time, so McCaffrey’s 30% percentage will automatically rise. Seattle uses two high safeties on defense and prefers to keep everything under. “Captain Purdy Checkdown” should be on the lookout for McCaffrey frequently.
Running back rookie Kenneth Walker III has rushed for nine touchdowns, and 649 yards on 138 runs this season. Walker is currently listed as +300 and is expected to win the Offensive Rookie of the Award of the Year. Would you like to see him replace Christian Watson (+300) and Garrett Wilson (+150) for the award this year? Will it be a massive game on Thursday night?
Qatar Bracket Challenge
Snellings Walker will have a tough time keeping up with Wilson and Watson because his schedule is down. This stretch can be brutal, beginning on Thursday evening. The 49ers have the most formidable defensive rushing unit in the NFL and have the lowest running yards and second-lowest scores of touchdowns at players at the point (five over 13 contests).
The 49ers are going over for all of Walker’s rushing prowess on Thursday. And for the remainder season, the four teams he’ll be playing will be among 13 teams with the smallest amount of rushing yards given to running backs who oppose him.
Do you have any other games you’re playing?
Schatz Ich will take Geno Smith in 1.5 touchdowns (+112). Yes, the 49ers’ defense is fantastic. Should they score touchdowns, the Seahawks can score touchdowns, and they’re likely to achieve them via the air. Keep in mind that the weak point of the 49ers’ defense is their deep passes. And the Seahawks are extremely strong with wide keys toward Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf.
Furthermore, Smith has thrown for numerous touchdowns in seven consecutive games! Our projections suggest Smith is over this mark 56 percent of the time, which isn’t a lot, but it is excellent considering the favorable odds.
Moody: George Kittle has over 38.5 receiving yards. The Seahawks’ defense has proven to be an obstacle. In the last three games, the reason of Seattle has given opponents the fifth-highest total yards. Kittle’s statistics have fluctuated and down throughout the year.
However, he’s facing a Seahawks defense that has been smashed through tight ends. Because of the injury to Samuel, 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan might have to create additional games for Kittle. Kittle is a veteran tight end who had an average of 62.4 receiving yards in a game against the Seahawks throughout his career.
Marks: I love Moody’s Kittle over the last two years, and I’ll add Marquise Goodwin to the list of 23.5 receiving yards. He’s become the go-to player in the case of Geno Smith. He caught five times in six attempts last week to gain 95 yards. He also has four TDs in the previous six games. Goodwin plays most of his snaps in the slot, where the 49ers’ defense is the most vulnerable. Goodwin has exceeded 23 yards of receiving in seven contests this season.
