The Seahawks have slipped out of the playoff hunt in what should have been a wide-open NFC Wild Card picture for them with three straight losses since Russell Wilson came back from his injury. Seattle is averaging under 10 points per game since Wilson went back into the lineup, and it’s difficult to trust their offense at the moment. The 49ers, meanwhile, lost both Deebo Samuel and Fred Warner, arguably their two best players, last week. This divisional matchup still has high stakes for both teams, and it will be an intriguing game to bet on.

San Francisco 49ers Vs. Seattle Seahawks Player Prop Search Tool
Russell Wilson Under 224.5 Passing Yards
The 49ers’ secondary has recovered very nicely from an early-season injury to top cornerback Jason Verrett, and they have allowed just 207.3 passing yards per game, the sixth-fewest in the NFL. Wilson barely surpassed this line last week, but he faced a Washington defense allowing the third-most passing yards per game. He had averaged just 167.3 passing yards per game in his four previous games. His finger injury still hampers Wilson, and it’s hard to imagine him fully getting back on track against this defense, particularly with how Nick Bosa and Arik Armstead should dominate a mediocre Seattle offensive line.
Elijah Mitchell Over 18.5 Rushing Attempts
Elijah Mitchell has totaled 27 rushing attempts in each of his past two games as he has been the driving force behind the 49ers’ ascendant offense. That has been with Deebo Samuel averaging 7.5 carries over those two games. Now, Mitchell gets to face a Seattle defense that has allowed the tenth-most rushing yards per game with Samuel sidelined with a groin injury. Mitchell is dominating backfield touches in the 49ers’ offense and benefits from a phenomenal offensive line and excellent blocking scheme. You can look at Mitchell’s yardage props for rushing and receiving, but this is a smash play for my money, and I love Mitchell’s upside in this matchup.
DK Metcalf Over 55.5 Receiving Yards
This prop contradicts my Russell Wilson under passing yardage prop, and I certainly would not parlay the two together. However, I can’t ignore the “squeaky wheel gets the grease” narrative in this case, as Seahawks’ offensive coordinator Shane Waldron said this week that “we’ve got to get the guy the ball.” Metcalf had a five-week stretch earlier this season where he surpassed this yardage total in every game, and I believe the Seahawks are going to make a point of getting him the ball early and often this week. Metcalf’s touchdown prop is at +150, which seems like a great value given his red-zone presence, and I’d contemplate betting him over 4.5 receptions as well.
Brandon Aiyuk Over 60.5 Receiving Yards
With Deebo Samuel out this week, Brandon Aiyuk becomes the top wideout for the 49ers in a juicy matchup with a Seattle defense that has allowed 274.1 passing yards per game, the second-most in the NFL. Aiyuk had already been breaking out lately as he had surpassed this yardage mark in three of his last four games and has averaged 72.8 receiving yards per game over that span. The second-year wideout is a former first-round talent who seems to have put his early-season struggles behind him, and he will be an integral part of the offense for as long as Samuel is sidelined.
