Numerous Nevada sports books have made the 49ers 2.5-point favorites over the visiting Seahawks on Sunday in San Francisco, according to multiple line-monitoring websites.

If you did a double-take seeing 11-1 Seattle as an underdog, you couldn’t be blamed.

According to “The Linemakers” of Sporting News, only the Seahawks and Broncos had been favored in each of their first 12 games.

The Broncos are currently big favorites against the Titans on Sunday, so their favoritism streak looks safe.

The Seahawks were last underdogs in the 2012 divisional round at Atlanta. They fell 30-28 to the Falcons, who were three-point favorites.
