Eagles vs. Seahawks Pick
Will Sunday's matchup in Seattle between the Eagles and Seahawks turn into a defensive struggle at 4:25PM ET?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Seahawks are 6.5-point home favorites versus the Eagles while the over/under currently sits at 43 points. Both the side and the total moved drastically, with Seattle going from -4.5 to -6.5, and the total opening at 46 before dropping three full points to 43.
EAGLES KEY TRENDS: The Eagles are just 1-4 against the spread in their last five games in November and have failed to win at the betting window in all four of their last four road games. They've been an excellent home buy this season, covering the number in all four of their games at Lincoln Financial Field, but the Eagles haven't covered on the road since Week 2 against the Bears.
SEAHAWKS KEY TRENDS: The Seahawks are a perfect 4-0 against the spread in their last four games in November, which is a good indication of how strong Seattle has been in the second half over the past few years. The Seahawks are also 5-2 against the spread in their last seven games overall and are 6-1 at the betting window in their last seven games after scoring more than 30 points in their previous game.
OUR PREDICTION: One would think that this would be a low-scoring game with two of the better defenses in the NFL squaring off, but the over is 9-0 in the Eagles' last nine road games and 11-2 in their last 13 matchups versus NFC opponents. The over is also 5-2 in the Seahawks' last seven games overall and 8-2 in their last 10 games versus opponents with a winning record. Seattle looks like a different offense with Russell Wilson getting healthier by the week and rookie C.J. Prosise revitalized the running game last week in Foxboro. With the total sitting at only 43, this is a good opportunity to snatch the over with the Seahawks' offense starting to hum again.
