Eagles vs. Seahawks Prediction
Will the Eagles keep things close versus the Seahawks this afternoon at 4:25PM ET or will Seattle roll?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Seahawks are 6.5-point home favorites versus the Eagles after opening as a 4.5-point favorite. The total, meanwhile, is sitting at 42.5 points after it opened at 46.
The Eagles snapped a two-game losing skid with an impressive 24-15 win over the Falcons as a 2-point home favorite last Sunday. The Eagles have been great at home this season, winning and covering in all four games this season at Lincoln Financial. That said, they haven't won a road game since Week 2 when they beat the Bears 29-14 as a 3-point underdog on Monday Night Football.
The Seahawks have now won two straight games to get to 6-2-1 on the season. They covered as a 5.5-point home favorite on Monday Night Football when they beat the Bills 31-25, then covered as a 7.5-point underdog last Sunday night in Foxboro when they beat the Patriots, 31-24. The Seahawks are 5-2 against the spread in their last seven games overall and have covered in all four of their last four games in November.
OUR PREDICTION: The Seahawks are starting to pick up steam, just like they've done over the last few years under Pete Carroll. They're an excellent second-half team and now that Russell Wilson is getting healthier by the week, their offense is starting to resemble the unit that they have been over the past couple of seasons. Rookie C.J. Prosise has also given their running game a boost and Thomas Rawls is expected to return from injury this week as well. The Eagles are just 1-4 against the spread in their last five games versus the Seahawks and the favorite has cashed in six of the last eight meetings between these two teams.
