Re: Monday Night Football: Saints vs Seahawks

NFL Week 13

Saints (9-2) @ Seahawks (10-1) —
New Orleans offense isn’t nearly as potent on road (19.2 ppg) as in Superdome (32.7) but Seattle has attrition issues at CB and this is bad time for that. Seahawks won last six pre-bye games, have had 15 days since last game; they’ve got 3-game lead in NFC West, so not as much urgency as Sants, who are battling Carolina in NFC South and still have to play Panthers twice, with first meeting next week. Seahawks are 3-2 as home favorites this year, with home wins by 21-28-7-3-21 points- they were favored by 13/16 points in two non-covers. Saints’ two losses are 30-27 in Foxboro, 26-20 at Jets; they’re 1-1 as underdogs this year, winning SU in Chicago. NO defense allowed only five TDs on 31 drives in last three games, giving up 16.7 ppg. NFC West non-divisional favorites are 14-5-1 vs spread, 8-4-1 at home. NFC South underdogs are 6-7, 4-4 on road. Teams split 12 series meetings; Seattle won last one 41-36 here in 2010 playoffs. Saints don’t want to be coming back here in January. Three of last four Seattle home games went over the total.

Monday Night Football Betting: Saints at Seahawks
By Covers.com

New Orleans Saints at Seattle Seahawks (-4.5, 47.5)

If the Seattle Seahawks can extend their franchise-record home winning streak Monday against the New Orleans Saints, they'll likely assure the road to the Super Bowl goes through Seattle. The Seahawks have a one-game lead over the Saints for home-field advantage in the playoffs, and they can effectively build a three-game cushion with a head-to-head victory. The Saints need a fourth straight win not only to preserve their chances of staying home throughout the playoffs, but also to maintain a one-game lead over Carolina in the NFC South.

The Seahawks have won six straight since their lone defeat - a 34-28 loss at Indianapolis - and are off to the best start in franchise history at 10-1, yet each game seems to hold more importance even as they distance themselves in the NFC West. "Every game that we play is a championship game," Seahawks coach Pete Carroll told reporters. "You never know which one is going to be the one that you look back on and say, 'Boy, if we'd have got that one, we would've had this or that.' So we play every one of them like it's the biggest game in the world." Seattle can clinch a playoff spot with a victory if either Arizona or San Francisco lose Sunday.

LINE: The line opened at -4.5, then jumped to -6, before being bet back to -4.5. The total opened at 45.5 and has been bet up to 47.5.

WEATHER: There is a 54 percent chance of snow, with temperatures in the mid 30s. The will be a 12 mph wind blowing towards the South end zone.

COVERS POWER RANKINGS: New Orleans (-6) - Seattle (-7.5) + home field (-3) = Seattle -4.5

ABOUT THE SAINTS (9-2, 6-5 ATS): New Orleans has won three straight, but it's had to squeak out the last two by a combined seven points. After setting a franchise record with 625 total yards three weeks ago in a 49-17 win over Dallas, the offense has been less-than-stellar the past two weeks, but the Saints still rank third in the NFL in total yards per game and second in passing yards. The defense, often a weakness for New Orleans, has been rejuvenated under coordinator Rob Ryan and has allowed more than 400 total yards only once all season.

ABOUT THE SEAHAWKS (10-1, 7-4 ATS): Seattle's Russell Wilson is the less-notable quarterback in the matchup, but he is 13-0 at home with 26 touchdowns against six interceptions. The Seahawks also boast the league's No. 3 rushing game with Marshawn Lynch (925 yards, 9 TDs) leading the way. The Seahawks have the second-ranked pass defense, but they will be short-handed in the secondary - cornerback Walter Thurmond is suspended for the next four games for violating the league's substance abuse policy and cornerback Brandon Browner is still out with a groin injury - a potential disaster against Drew Brees and the Saints' pass-happy offense.

TRENDS:

* Saints are 5-0 ATS in their last five Monday night games.
* Seahawks are 10-2 ATS in their last 12 games versus a team with a winning record.
* Under is 6-1 in Saints last seven games versus the NFC.
* Over is 4-1 in Seahawks last five games following a ATS win.

EXTRA POINTS:

1. Brees has won nine straight starts on Monday Night Football with a 123.6 passer rating in those games.

2. Seattle is tied for the NFL lead with 16 interceptions and boasts a plus-11 turnover margin.

3. Saints TE Jimmy Graham has six 100-yard games this season, tied for the most by a tight end in NFL history.

Re: Monday Night Football: Saints vs Seahawks

MNF - Saints at Seahawks
By Kevin Rogers
VegasInsider.com

The first heavyweight battle in the NFC takes place to kick off the month of December as the Saints travel cross-country to take on the one-loss Seahawks. Seattle benefits from having an extra week to prepare, but New Orleans received three days of prep after holding off its struggling division rival two Thursdays ago.

The Saints' main competition heading inside the NFC North to start the season was the Falcons, who were one touchdown away from making the Super Bowl last season. However, Atlanta fell into a huge hole thanks to key injuries on both sides of the ball, while not even becoming a factor in the division race. New Orleans made sure it wasn't going to slip up in Week 12, as the Saints held off the Falcons, 17-13, but failed to cash as 7½-point road favorites.

The win was the third straight for Sean Payton's club, as the Saints' defense held the Falcons out of the end zone for the final three quarters. Drew Brees tossed a pair of touchdowns, including a 44-yard strike to tight end Jimmy Graham for the go-ahead score in the second quarter. Even though the Saints grabbed a crucial road victory, New Orleans has cashed just once in five games away from the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

The Seahawks continue to be an absolute machine at home, winning their 13th straight contest at CenturyLink Field two weeks ago over the struggling Vikings. Seattle routed Minnesota, 41-20 to cash as 13-point favorites, as the Seahawks broke away with 21 unanswered points after leading, 17-13. The Seahawks racked up just 323 yards of offense, but Marshawn Lynch scored twice on the ground, while Russell Wilson threw multiple touchdown passes for the fifth straight game.

Seattle owns a one-game advantage over New Orleans for home-field advantage in the NFC playoff race, as both teams will likely be the top two seeds in the conference. Pete Carroll's team last lost at CenturyLink Field in Week 16 of the 2011 season against San Francisco, while covering 10 of 13 times during this hot streak (all three non-covers came as double-digit favorites).

The last time these teams met up, the Saints were knocked out of the Wild Card round by the Seahawks in the 2010 postseason. In spite of owning a better regular season record, New Orleans had to travel to the Pacific Northwest since Seattle won the NFC West and the Saints finished as a Wild Card squad. The Seahawks cashed outright as 9 ½-point home underdogs, 41-36, as Seattle erased an early 10-0 deficit to grab the upset. Lynch ran over the Saints' defense on the game-clinching 67-yard touchdown in the final minutes, while rushing for 131 yards in the win.

From a totals perspective, there has been little consistency in this department for both teams. The Saints are 6-5 to the 'under,' while going 3-2 to the 'under' in five games away from the Big Easy. Seattle has hit the 'over' in six of 11 games, including a 3-2 'over' mark at home. The Seahawks have scored at least 27 points in four of five home contests, while the Saints have surprisingly been limited 20 points or fewer in three of five road outings.

New Orleans is listed as an underdog for just the third time this season, while splitting games at Chicago and New England in this role. The Saints are receiving at least four posting for the first time since Week 8 of last season in a 34-24 defeat at Denver, but that New Orleans team was without Payton and owned a historically horrible defense.

Seattle is laying single-digits at home for only the second time this season, as the Seahawks destroyed the 49ers in Week 2 as three-point favorites, 29-3. Since the start of the 2012 season, Seattle has won and covered all four opportunities as a home favorite of nine points or less, with each winning coming by double-digits.

The Seahawks are listed as 5½-point favorites, while the total is set at 47. The game can be seen on ESPN and kicks off at 8:30 PM EST from CenturyLink Field.

Re: Monday Night Football: Saints vs Seahawks

Saints look for road upset
By Sportsbook.ag

NEW ORLEANS SAINTS (9-2) at SEATTLE SEAHAWKS (10-1)

Sportsbook.ag Line: Seattle -5.5, Total: 47

The Saints carry a three-game winning streak into Seattle on Monday night in an attempt to slow down the Seahawks, who have won six straight themselves.

Although both teams are hot, Seattle was only 3-4 ATS in seven games leading up to last week's bye, while the Saints have also been a losing bet recently, going 1-3 ATS in the past four contests. Since 1997, the Seahawks hold a 4-3 edge (SU and ATS) in this series, including a 3-1 mark (SU and ATS) at home. The last time these teams played was in the playoffs following the 2010 season, which was a wild 41-36 win for Seattle, which was tabbed as a 10-point home underdog.

Over the past two seasons, the Seahawks are 6-0 ATS as a favorite of 3.5 points to 9.5 points. They are, however, 4-18 ATS (18%) off a home blowout win by 21 points or more since 1992.

Although Seattle star WR Percy Harvin (hip) will be able to play a full snap count for this game, the team will be without two star CBs in Brandon Browner (groin) and Walter Thurmond (suspension). New Orleans will not have the services of CB Jabari Greer (knee), while RB Darren Sproles (ankle) and G Jahri Evans (ankle) are both listed as questionable.

The Saints have been playing great football, winning their past three games behind excellent play on both sides of the ball. Over the course of the streak, QB Drew Brees has thrown seven touchdowns and just one interception. Brees will be going against an outstanding Seahawks defense, but they will be without two of their top corners due to suspension and injury.

RB Pierre Thomas has also played stellar football over the past three weeks with 209 rushing yards and a touchdown on the ground, and 17 receptions for 116 yards and a touchdown in the passing game.

The defense has also stepped up, allowing just 50 total points in the three straight victories to lower its scoring defense to 17.8 PPG allowed (5th in NFL). New Orleans' defense has been superb all season, allowing just 198.0 yards per game through the air (3rd in NFL) and 111.9 yards per game on the ground (15th in league). This will be an excellent matchup between an explosive offense, and a defense that is capable of stopping anyone when healthy.

The Seahawks are on a roll right now with six straight victories. QB Russell Wilson has been outstanding for the Seahawks all season, but has really been incredible recently. Over the past five games, Wilson has thrown for 11 touchdowns and just two interceptions. RB Marshawn Lynch has also played well as of late, finding the end zone four times over the past two weeks.

After missing the first 10 games of the season with a hip injury, WR Percy Harvin made his Seahawks debut last game, and had just one reception for 17 yards. But he figures to be a much bigger part of the offense coming out of a bye week.

Seattle’s defense has been dominant all year, allowing just 180.4 yards per game through the air (2nd in NFL). They will, however, be without CBs Walter Thurmond (suspension) and Brandon Browner (groin). Their reserves must now step in and try to slow down an explosive Drew Brees-led Saints offense.
