NFL odds and lines, Seahawks vs. 49ers 2013: San Francisco slight favorites at home

The Seahawks are looking to clinch the NFC West on Sunday, but Vegas has the 49ers as early favorites at home.

The San Francisco 49ers host the Seattle Seahawks in the most anticipated game of Week 14, and Vegas is expecting a close matchup. According to OddsShark, the 49ers are favored by 2.5 points at home.

The 49ers are riding a two-game winning streak and remain in good position for a wild card spot. They routed the St. Louis Rams last week, 23-13, easily covering the -7.5-point spread. San Francisco is 8-4 in the standings and 8-3-1 against the spread. Michael Crabtree came back last week, but the 49ers will be without star tackle Joe Staley.

The Seahawks punched their playoff ticket after demolishing the New Orleans Saints on Monday night. They were 6.5-point favorites and had no problem covering with a 34-7 win. Seattle can clinch the NFC West by beating San Francisco and has a two-game lead for the No. 1 seed in the NFC. The Seahawks are 11-1 on the season and 8-4 against the spread. One of the few concerns remaining is the loss of Percy Harvin. He had treatment on his hip last week and Seattle could shut him down until the playoffs.
