Since Jim Harbaugh took over as the 49ers coach, they’ve never been a double digit underdog. Until now.
The Seattle Seahawks line to defeat the 49ers is in the double digits, a first in the Jim Harbaugh era.
While we can all celebrate the Seahawks win against the NFC East leading Philadelphia Eagles (9-4), we should turn to next week’s game against the San Francisco 49ers. The 49ers travel to Seattle for their final meeting of the season and things couldn’t be going more different for the two organizations.

Two weeks ago both teams were 7-4 and in position to take over the NFC West lead with five games remaining. The Seahawks have won their past two games in convincing fashion, with many experts claiming the Seahawks are back to their Super Bowl form of a year ago. The 49ers on the other hand have lost each of their last two games, one to the previously 1-11 Oakland Raiders.
It’s no wonder then that the Seattle Seahawks opened up as 7.5 point favorites in this upcoming week’s game in Seattle. The odds have now shot up to double digits with the Seahawks projected to win by as many as 11 points this Sunday.
A blowout win by Seattle would be the perfect way to kick the 49ers while they are down and possible put an end to Jim Harbaugh’s time as an NFL coach.
