Saints-Seahawks Total Offers Value
LAS VEGAS, NV (The Spread) - The New Orleans Saints and the Seattle Seahwks total offers the best value on the line during this weekends divisional NFL playoff matchups.
The weather this weekend in Seattle is forecast to feature heavy rain and winds. That alone should factor into problems for both teams to move the ball via the pass and for FG attempts to be problematic.
Defensively, speaking the Seahawks rank in the top 10 against the run and pass. So the Saints Drew Brees and company will not only battle the weather ,but a very physical Seattle defense that can make life difficult for the very best of offensive teams.
Meanwhile , the Saints rebuilt defense , has been solid for most of the season, and despite of their secondary being ravaged with injuries of late are blessed to have to play this game in windy/rainy conditions, which will make it hard for the Seahawks to move the ball through the air.
With that said I'm looking for a contest that mostly features both sides rushing attacks on offense and a overall clock burning- slow grinding defensive battle that will keep this contest on the low side of the number.
Below are some key trends:
Under is 5-0 in Saints last 5 road games.
Under is 5-0 in Saints last 5 vs. a team with a winning record.
Under is 7-1 in Saints last 8 games overall.
Under is 5-0 in Seahawks last 5 games overall.
Under is 5-0 in Seahawks last 5 vs. NFC.
