Seattle Seahawks DFS Spin

The Detroit Lions defense is giving up 5 yards per carry, which is the 5th-worst figure in the NFL. The Lions have also allowed the most rushing touchdowns of any team (7) so far this season. Because of this, both of Seattle’s top two running backs, Rashaad Penny and Kenneth Walker III might have some value. 

Seahawks wide receiver DK Metcalf will likely have Lions corner Jeff Okudah following him around the field on Sunday. That, combined with the fact that wide receiver Marquise Goodwin is questionable makes Tyler Lockett the best play when it comes to Seattle pass catchers. Lockett is leading the team in targets and he could make a few big plays on Sunday.

Detroit Lions DFS Spin

The Detroit Lions will be missing their starting running back (D’Andre Swift) and number one wide receiver (Amon-Ran St. Brown) on Sunday. Another wideout, Josh Reynolds is questionable to play on Sunday. I think there’s value in Lions’ quarterback Jared Goff, who’s 8th in the NFL in QBR (63.3 out of 100) through 3 games. He’s also facing a Seattle pass defense that is allowing 8.4 yards per pass attempt, the worst figure in the league. Wide receiver DJ Chark might also be worth a look as he was just upgraded to probable on Friday and may be the only starting Lions receiver that will be healthy for the game on Sunday.

The Seahawks are also permitting 4.9 yards per carry on the ground, so Detroit running back Jamal Williams, who will have an expanded role with D’Andre Swift out, might be a good cost-effective option at running back.

Seattle is 20-16 straight up in the regular season since the beginning of 2020.

Detroit is 9-26-1 straight up in the regular season since the beginning of 2020.

Detroit is 14-6 ATS dating back to the beginning of last season.

The home team is 6-2 ATS in the last 8 meetings between Seattle and Detroit.

The over is 4-0 in Detroit’s last 4 games following an outright loss.

The over is 5-1 in Seattle’s last 6 games after gaining over 350 total yards in their previous game.

The over is 5-0 in Detroit’s last 5 games overall.

Seahawks vs. Lions Prediction:

The Detroit Lions are one of only two teams that are 3-0 against the spread this season. Last year they were good against the number as well, going 11-6 against the spread, the 4th best mark in the league. The Lions play hard for their coach Dan Campbell and have shown they can put up points at home, scoring 35 in week 1 and 36 in week 2.

I also think Seattle is one of the worst teams in the league, and that their sole win at home against Denver on opening night was a bit fluky, as the Broncos’ first-year head coach Nathaniel Hackett made several game management mistakes. I don’t trust Seattle quarterback Geno Smith, especially on the road in a dome against a team that competes as hard as the Lions do. I’ll lay the points with Detroit.
