Lynch is expected to play today for the Seahawks (11-6, 8-8-1 ATS) after suffering a sports hernia during the season. He was also expected to play last week but elected not to travel with the team to Minnesota. He appeared in just seven games during the regular season, rushing for just 417 yards with three touchdowns and a 3.8 yards per-carry average. His last outing was on Nov. 15 in a 39-32 loss to the Cardinals at home when he rushed for 42 yards on 8 carries, but had a TD.

Today the Seahawks and Lynch face the top-seeded Panthers (15-1, 11-5 ATS). Carolina has the fourth-ranked run defense in the NFL this season, allowing just 88.4 yards per game. They also allowed just eight rushing touchdowns this season to running backs. Oddsmakers have listed Lynch with odds of -110 to score in this game, while his odds to score the first TD are set at +850. When Lynch met up with the Panthers on Oct. 18, he rushed for just 54 yards on 17 carries, but did find the end zone. Lynch has scored a TD in seven of his last eight postseason games.
