Seattle Seahawks DFS Spin
Russell Wilson completed 27-of-37 attempts for 267 yards and four touchdowns in the Seahawks' Week 8 win over the 49ers. Wilson now has 26 passing touchdowns in seven games, something only Tom Brady (2007) has done in NFL history. He's the favorite for MVP through half of the season and could flirt with NFL records with Seattle featuring league-high neutral pass rates. Wilson's accuracy and athleticism are too much for defenses now that he has elite talent at receiver. The 7-1 Seahawks will head to Buffalo in Week 9 to face a struggling and injured Bills defense. He's a matchup-proof top three option.
Buffalo Bills DFS Spin
Josh Allen completed 11-of-18 passes for 154 yards and an interception in the Bills' Week 8 win over the Patriots, adding 10 carries for 23 yards and a touchdown. Allen wasn't able to get much going versus the New England defense but he did average 8.6 yards per attempt and find the end zone on the ground. The Bills' rushing attack was unstoppable on Sunday leading to throw a season-low number of pass attempts. The Bills never played from behind in the game making it even easier for them to lean on the run. Outside of his interception, Allen was modestly efficient and showed off his rushing upside. He may not sustain his production from early in the season but Allen still projects as a QB1 for the rest of the season.
Seahawks vs. Bills Betting Prediction
The Seahawks are 7-3-1 against the spread in their last 11 games as a favorite, are 5-2 against the number in their last seven games overall and are 13-5-1 at the betting window in their last 19 road games. They’re also 6-0-1 against the spread in their last seven games played in November and have covered in seven of their last eight road games versus a team with a winning home record. On the other side, the Bills are 0-4 against the spread in their last four games overall and are just 3-8 against the number in their last 11 games as a home underdog.
