San Francisco 49ers shine on the primetime stage

Dec 22, 2012 |
The San Francisco 49ers thrive in the limelight of NFL primetime and look to remain perfect on the big stage against the Seattle Seahawks Sunday night.

The 49ers take a 5-0 SU record in primetime games into Week 16’s Sunday Night Football matchup in Seattle. Oddsmakers have the game set as a pick’em. The Niners have been a solid bet during these high-profile contests, posting a 4-1 mark against the spread.

San Francisco defeated the Detroit Lions on Sunday night in Week 2, edged the Seahawks on Thursday Night Football in Week 7, thumped the Arizona Cardinals on Monday Night Football in Week 8, rolled the Chicago Bears on Monday in Week 11 and recently upended the New England Patriots on the road last Sunday night.

The 13-6 home win over Seattle was the only blown cover of those contests, with the 49ers unable to cover as 7.5-point favorites. On the year, San Francisco is 9-5 ATS (5-2 ATS on the road) and has covered in four of its last five games heading into Week 16.

San Francisco has beaten Seattle in four straight meetings and is 3-1 ATS in that span.
