Will Seahawks cover spread vs. Pack?
SEATTLE, WA (Lock Labs) - The Seahawks are favorite by more than a touchdown over the Packers in the NFC title game today at 3:05PM ET. Will Seattle cover?
The Seahawks are a near-perfect 5-1 against the spread in their last six playoff games and are 4-1 ATS in their last five playoff home games. The Packers, meanwhile, are 0-4 against the number in their last four games on fieldturf and 3-7 ATS in their last 10 road games versus a team with a winning home record.
Aaron Rodgers (calf) and Eddie Lacy (knee) are both banged up, which isn't a good sign for the Packers as they prepare for Seattle's stingy defense. On the other side, Green Bay's run defense is going to have a hell of a time containing Marshawn Lynch and Russell Wilson. Clay Matthews can only do so much defensively for the Packers.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Seahawks are 7.5-point home favorites over the Packers while the over/under total is currently sitting at 46.5 points. We like the Seahawks to cover the spread but we'd bet them now because the line continues to climb.
