Experts Predict the Outcome of 49ers-Seahawks Rematch

Coming off an upset victory over the Atlanta Falcons, the San Francisco 49ers hope to maintain their momentum out of the bye week when they travel to Seattle on Sunday to face the rival Seahawks.

Seattle has lost two games in a row at CenturyLink Field, but San Francisco has not won in the hostile environment since 2011.

The Seahawks defeated the 49ers in Week 7 in Santa Clara, 20-3.

Here are the experts' picks from around the web for the Week 11 clash. Give us your predictions in the comment section below...

Elliot Harrison of Seahawks 30, 49ers 10

"Is Blaine Gabbert the answer for the Niners? Before you snicker, remember that this guy did go 10th overall in the same draft that featured Colin Kaepernick and Andy Dalton as second-round picks. Gabbert will endeavor to get the ball out on time, as he did versus the Falcons two weeks ago, although he'll find this Seattle pass rush to be a different animal entirely than Atlanta's."

Pete Prisco of CBS Sports: Seahawks 28, 49ers 7

The 49ers and Seahawks have a long history, going back to 1976. Here are photos from their 38 meetings.

"The Seahawks are in desperate need of a victory, and this might be one of those games where they take it out on a rival. Blaine Gabbert will face a fierce defense here. The Seahawks will also get the offense going. Seattle takes it."

Don Banks of Sports Illlustrated: Seahawks 25, 49ers 13

"The Seahawks gave up 39 points at home last week and have now lost two in a row at CenturyLink Field, and they're just a blown ref's call on K.J. Wright's illegal bat away from a three-game slide in front of the 12's. Still think that whole Super Bowl hangover thing is just a media creation? The Seahawks don't have to worry about the 49ers hanging 39 on them, but as I've said before, nothing is going to come easily in Seattle this year."

Pete Schrager of Fox Sports: Seahawks 30, 49ers 17

"It's been a long and strange 2015 season for the 49ers and their fans. The road trips have been the worst part. San Francisco is 0-4 on the road, with blowout losses at Pittsburgh, Arizona and St. Louis. Jim Tomsula reportedly spent a portion of the bye week with his coaches trying to figure out why the team hasn't played well in away games and coming up with ways to change their fate. I don't see playing in Seattle as the ideal testing ground for those new tactics."
