Seahawks vs 49ers Week 2 Game Info
2022 NFL Regular Season Game
Seattle Seahawks (1-0, 0-0 Away) vs. San Francisco 49ers (0-1, 0-0 Home)
Date: Sunday, Sept. 18, 2022
Time: 4:05 p.m. ET
Venue: Levi's Stadium— Santa Clara, CA
Week 2 of the 2022 NFL season includes an NFC West showdown between the Seattle Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers. The Seahawks are riding high after ruining Russell Wilson's homecoming party and defeating the Denver Broncos, 17-16, on Monday. Quarterback Geno Smith completed 23-of-28 passes (82.1%) for 195 yards and a pair of touchdowns.
Meanwhile, the 49ers are feeling the complete opposite after a disappointing 19-10 opening-week loss to the Chicago Bears. Rain and poor field conditions were a factor in the loss, leaving time to tell if San Francisco can bounce back or if Kyle Shanahan's team is as bad as they looked last week.

Seahawks vs 49ers Prediction & Pick
Even though the 49ers are the odds-on favorites, they haven't had much success against the Seahawks lately. Seattle has won 17 of its last 20 meetings against its NFC West rival and has only lost one of its last 11 trips to San Francisco. Needless to say, a 49ers victory might not be as clear-cut as the odds imply.
Throw in Trey Lance's struggles under center and that starting running back Elijah Mitchell is sidelined, and there's reason to be concerned about San Francisco this week. While I think that the 49ers have the better overall roster, the Seahawks have a lot of heart and if the defense plays as well as it did in Week 1, this game could be closer than expected.
Final Score Prediction: 49ers: 20 | Seahawks: 16

- Seattle is 15-5 against the spread (ATS) in its last 20 games against San Francisco.

Seahawks vs 49ers Best Bet
On top of consistently beating the 49ers up, the Seahawks also do well against the spread when their rivals are involved. An 8.5-point spread is too much for my liking after San Francisco's unimpressive Week 1 performance. Considering that the Seahawks are 15-5 ATS in their last 20 games against the 49ers, give me Seattle covering the spread.
Bet: Seahawks +8.5 (-112)
