Best Bet No. 1: Geno Smith OVER 1.5 Passing Touchdowns (+140)

The Seahawks’ main touchdown threat, Kenneth Walker III, is not expected to play this week. Zach Charbonnet is a fine replacement, but he lacks Walker’s physicality around the goal line. As a result, we should see the Seahawks look for ways to score via the passing attack. San Francisco has a strong defense, but Smith benefits from the Seahawks’ strong wide receiver corps and anticipated negative game script. Furthermore, the veteran quarterback has hit the “over” on this prop in three of his last five games, as well as each of his last three home games. Lock this one in, especially at plus money.

Best Bet No. 2: George Kittle OVER 52.5 Receiving Yards (-115)

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, don’t forget to thank Vegas for this line. Kittle has totaled more than 52.5 receiving yards in each of his last four games, as well as five of his last six. The Seahawks’ defense isn’t particularly stingy, either, allowing the 11th-most yards per game to opposing tight ends. San Francisco does have many mouths to feed, but this Thursday night game has the potential to be a high-scoring affair. Kittle could be Brock Purdy‘s No. 1 target as he looks for a physical, reliable pass-catcher to move the Niners down the field. Taking the “over” is a no-brainer.

Best Bet No. 3: Zach Charbonnet UNDER 54.5 Rushing Yards (-115)

The 49ers have been relentless against opposing backfields this season, holding running backs to the fewest rushing attempts and second-fewest rushing yards per game. That would be a tough task for any ball-carrier, let alone a rookie making his first career start. With the Seahawks expected to play from behind, Charbonnet could find himself getting involved as a receiver. However, he’s not a reliable threat in the rushing attack. Seattle is going to struggle to get its ground game going without Walker, making the “under” on Charbonnet’s rushing yards a great choice.
