Who will WIN this matchup?

Seattle Seahawks (1-0)

@ San Francisco 49ers (0-1)


Current odds:

Seattle Seahawks: (+328)

San Francisco 49ers: (-430)


The spread for the game is San Francisco by 9 points.

After engineering the Seahawks’ 17-16 victory against Denver in Russell Wilson’s return to Seattle on Monday night, Smith was asked by a sideline reporter about his doubters after making his first opening-week start since 2014. “They wrote me off, I ain’t write back though,” Smith said. Smith, who served as Wilson’s backup with the Seahawks the previous two seasons, was generally mistake-free in the opener, completing 23 of 28 passes for 195 yards and two touchdowns.

Seattle’s defense made two goal-line stands in the second half and limited Denver to a pair of field goals on four trips to the red zone. Linebacker Uchenna Nwosu made seven tackles, had one sack, forced a goal-line fumble and was named NFC Defensive Player of the Week.

The 49ers lost their opener 19-10 Sunday at Chicago despite scoring the game’s first 10 points. Trey Lance, in his first game since being named the starter, was 13 of 28 for 164 yards on a sloppy day at Soldier Field and threw a costly interception.

The 49ers lost top running back Elijah Mitchell to a knee injury that’s expected to sideline him for at least a month and tight end George Kittle didn’t play because of a groin injury. Kittle has continued to miss practice this week. Jeff Wilson Jr. is expected to get most of the carries in Mitchell’s absence.
