Line movement after Seattle opened as 9.5-point underdogs for Sunday's matchup with rival 49ers

The Seattle Seahawks are road underdogs this weekend – just days after stunning the NFL with a shocking upset victory over the Denver Broncos to cap off the opening week to the season.

Despite entering Monday’s game as a six-point underdog against their former franchise quarterback Russell Wilson and his new team, the Seahawks prevailed with a one-point victory over the heavily favoured visitors, who had victory in sight only to have it taken away thanks to costly mistakes and questionable decisions.

The Seahawks may have entered the season with a win total of just 5.5, but they closed the book on Week One as surprise leaders of the NFC West, while basking in the glory of sending their old QB back to Denver with a loss in his highly anticipated return to Seattle following that blockbuster trade in March. 

The Seahawks now face the San Francisco 49ers in Week Two.

The Seahawks opened the week as 9.5-point road underdogs, which might have been a surprising line for some given what Seattle accomplished just days before as a home underdog against a Denver team that has significantly higher expectations around it this season.

As of Friday, that line had moved to Seattle +8.5.

Will the Seahawks be able to answer once again as sizable underdogs? Is there the possibility of an emotional letdown following the hype around Monday’s game? Was Seattle’s victory in Week One more a by-product of a favourite simply gifting the game to an inferior team by making critical mistakes at the wrong times?

Twice on Monday, the Broncos were knocking on the door at Seattle’s goal line, only to fumble and lose possession. And, of course, there was the missed 64-yard field goal at the end of the fourth quarter that would have given Denver the win had it been successful. It was not, and the second guessing of first-year head coach Nathaniel Hackett has been non-stop since then.

Geno Smith was solid as Seattle’s starting quarterback, particularly in the first half. He finished the night with 23 completions on 28 attempts for 195 yards and two touchdowns. Seattle was able to show some promising signs running the ball, with Rashaad Penny rushing 12 times and averaging five yards a carry.

With a pass game that has more perceived limitations on it than before, there is likely to be more focus on the run game. The expectation heading into the weekend was that rookie running back Kenneth Walker III would be available Sunday.

The 49ers run defence allowed four yards per carry last season and just 2.7 yards per carry in Week One – albeit a smaller and more unusual sample size.  

The 49ers started on a sour note last week. In brutally wet conditions at Chicago, the 49ers gave up 19 unanswered points to the Bears in the second half, losing 19-10 despite being favoured by 6.5 points.

It was an ugly game, a given with the conditions that completely drenched the field by the end, and Trey Lance, the third overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, struggled with 13 completions on 28 attempts for 164 yards and one interception.

Lance will look to bounce back this week, although weather forecasts out of San Francisco show high probability of rain and high winds on Sunday.

The Total opened at 43.5 but had moved all the way to 40.0 as of Friday.

Injuries at the running back position have already started for San Francisco, with Elijah Mitchell out for this week. Jeff Wilson Jr., slides into the starting running back role.

Both teams could be in for a run-heavy game plan, given the weather forecast. The 49ers probably will not mind. Seattle gave up 5.2 yards per carry to Denver in Week One.
