According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, Tennessee is now a 2.5-point home favorite to knock of Seattle after hitting the board as a 2.5-point underdog. The total, meanwhile, currently sits at 41 points after opening as high as 44.
SEATTLE SEAHAWKS BETTING TRENDS
The Seahawksa re just 1-5 against the spread in their last six games overall, are 0-5 against the number in their last five road games, and are 2-8 at the betting window in their last 10 games after allowing less than 15 points in their previous game. That said, they are 6-2 at the betting window in their last eight games following a failed cover in their previous contest.
TENNESSEE TITANS BETTING TRENDS
The Titans have covered the spread just seven times in their last 31 home games (with two pushes). They're also just 15-37-3 against the number in their last 55 games overall and are 9-25-1 at the betting window in their last 35 games after scoring more than 30 points in their previous game.
OUR PREDICTION: Honestly, this is one of the toughest games to cap on the Week 3 slate. The Seahawks' offensive line has held the entire offense hostage, but Seattle's defense has been outstanding through two weeks of play. It used to be that if the Seahawks were at home, you followed them no matter the line. Once they hit the road, fading them was often profitable for bettors. But there's something to taking the Seahawks in an underdog role. In fact, if you would have simply backed Pete Carroll's teams in an underdog role, you would have gone 24-16 against the spread since 2010. Granted, the Seahawks are already 0-1 against the number in that situation this season (a 17-9 loss on the road to the Packers in Week 1), but Seattle was a perfect 3-0 at the betting window in the regular season last year as a dog.
