Seattle went 11-5 last season and the Seahawks were also 11-5 against the spread while splitting the over/under for 16 games. Carolina was 7-9 last season while going 7-9 against the spread and hitting the over in 8 of 16 lined games.

Trends show that the Panthers have failed to cover the spread in their last four season openers while Seattle has covered in its last 4 home games and 6 of its last 7 games against conference opponents.

According to oddsmakers from Bovada.lv, Seattle is the road favorite in this game, as the Seahawks have odds of -3.5 points against Carolina. The over/under total for this game has been set at 44.5 points (View Matchup). The opening odds for this game had Seattle favored by 3.5 points as well. The spread hit a low of 2.5 before getting back to 3.5. The over/under total for this game opened at 45 points and hit a peak of 45.5 before falling back to 44.5.

Seattle had such a strong season a year ago mostly due to its defense, which led the NFL in scoring, allowing just 15.3 points per game. That defense is largely intact and be a force this season. The Seattle offense should be improved, as second-year quarterback Russell Wilson takes a step forward. Wilson had 3,118 yards passing with 26 touchdowns last season. He has running back Marshawn Lynch back this year as well. Lynch rushed for 1,590 yards and 11 touchdowns. The team added Percy Harvin in the offseason, but he will be out indefinitely with an injury.

Carolina was a hot-and-cold team this season as the Panthers got inconsistent play from quarterback Cam Newton last year. Newton had 3,869 passing yards and 741 rushing yards a season ago. Newton holds the cards for Carolina this year and he has receiver Steve Smith back. Smith caught 73 passes for 1,174 yards a year ago. Defensively, Carolina.
