Before we get into the specifics of this matchup and how to approach it for the DraftKings showdown slate, I want to point people back to a few pieces of evergreen content that I think are extremely valuable if you’re serious about winning showdown all season. I’d recommend reading/listening to this content before proceeding, especially if you’re new to showdown.

Spread: SF -3.0
Team Totals: 49ers (23.3), Seahawks (20.3)
The 9-4 Niners travel to Seattle for an NFC West showdown with the 7-6 Seahawks with major playoff implications on the line. San Francisco can clinch the divisional crown with a victory, while Seattle needs the win to improve their chances of playing post-season football.
These clubs met back in Week 2 when the Niners handled the Seahawks somewhat easily, 27-7. However, that was the game when Trey Lance was lost for the season, Christian McCaffrey wasn’t on the roster, and Geno Smith wasn’t really ‘Geno Smith‘ quite yet. Because of that and the fact that Deebo Samuel is out, using that matchup info may not be all that helpful in predicting how Niners/Seahawks part deux might go.
