It’s imply the best matchup of week 2, as the 49ers and Seahawks battle it out at the Emerald City on Sunday Night NFL predictions. Who will have to shave their eyebrow when this one’s over?

CenturyLink Field in Seattle, Wash., will be the site for tonight’s NFC West showdown between the (1-0) San Francisco 49ers and the (1-0) Seattle Seahawks. Opening kickoff is slated for 8:30 p.m. ET live on NBC Sports.

NFL week 2 odds makers list the hosting team as the betting favorites this evening. According to the experts, -3 points favor the Seahawks over the Niners (+3) this evening and the O/U totals 45 points.

For San Francisco, this team comes in fresh off a very impressive performance in the season opener against the Green Bay Packers. Quarterback Colin Kaepernick appeared to be in mid-season form, completing 27 of his 39 pass attempts for 412 yards, 3 touchdowns and no picks for a quarterback rating of 129.4.

For the Seahawks, while their season debut could have gone better, a win is a win nonetheless, especially on the road. Seattle went into Carolina and spoiled the Panthers home opener with a 12-7 win.

Signal-caller Russell Wilson was solid enough to get the “W” in week 1, connecting on 25 of his 33 pass attempts for 320 one score and no INTS for a QBR of 115.7. In the end, however, it was the Seahawks defense that got the job done, limiting the Panthers to 253 total yards.

Other than the crowd, tonight’s game should feel like a home game both the Niners. After a short flight up north, Kaepernick and his team will be ready to play in what will be a hard-hitting, very evenly competitive matchup.

In the end, I believe that this game will come down to a field goal, which is right along with what NFL oddsmakers are thinking. While I believe that the Niners are still the better team, there’s just something about this place that makes the Seahawks feel like they’re invincible.

I like the Niners chances with a three-point cushion tonight. In the end, I believe it’s more probable that the Seahawks will win the game, but I don’t see them doing I by more than three points.

On the other hand, I don’t believe it’s farfetched for a free NFL predictions to claim that that San Fran can go into CenturyLink and come away victorious.
