I assume Vegas doesn't think too much of the Seahawks win over the Rams.
It's only a point and a half but I'll take it.
Not trying to be a dick. But just as a counter point to what you said, I read a thread earlier today on another site from a guy that lives in vegas and loves the game line stuff. He was saying that the normal point spread for a game has the visiting team at +3 to start and then it adjusts from there. So the hawks being at +1.5 was actually a good thing for them. I don't gamble at all so the logic in that kind of thing is above my head. But thats what I read earlier today.
It means that if we were playing the Hawks at home you would be favored by 2.5. Alls I'm saying is that the betting public is slightly favoring the 49ers in this one, but at this stage in the week Vegas considers our two teams pretty much equal. Given Vegas' unfavorable recent history against the Niners (and rightly so) I'll take being the favorite at home.
Now all we have to do is live up to it, which I personally don't see it as being a problem. Not trying to be a dick, but the Hawks are going to run into a buzzsaw on Sunday IMO.
