According to our NFL Public Betting Chart page, the Seahawks are drawing 69% of the betting tickets ahead of tonight’s game.
Seattle Seahawks Fantasy Spin
Seahawks coach Pete Carroll believes Tyler Lockett (leg) won't miss games. Carroll is always optimistic about recovering from injuries and Lockett is still in a Bay Area hospital for swelling, but this is more good news all things considered. The Seahawks luckily have a bye this weekend and then the pressure will be on Lockett to get healthy for a matchup with the Eagles in Week 12. If Lockett can't overcome last night's "pretty severe situation", then DK Metcalf, Josh Gordon, and TE Jacob Hollister will have more on their plates.
Philadelphia Eagles Fantasy Spin
Eagles coach Doug Pederson said Alshon Jeffery (ankle) is "trending in the right direction" for Week 12 against the Seahawks. He said the same of Nelson Agholor (knee), who is tentatively expected to resume practicing Friday. Jeffery is on track to return from a one-week absence. Seattle's secondary hasn't shown us much—only three teams have allowed more passing yards per game this season—though the injury-prone Jeffery hasn't either. The shrug emoji of NFL receivers, consider Alshon a bland WR3.
The over is 5-0 in the Seahawks’ last five games played in the month of November, is 7-2 in their last nine road games and is 14-5 in their last 19 games overall.
The under is 13-5 in the Eagles’ last 18 home games but the over is 36-17 in their last 53 games following a loss.
NFL Week 12 Prediction
The Eagles were without Jeffrey, Desean Jackson and Jordan Howard last week and then during their 17-10 loss to the Patriots, also lost Lane Johnson. It’s no wonder their offense struggled. Johnson did not practice Wednesday or Thursday. But Howard returned to limit practice and so did Jeffrey. With those pieces back, I like Carson Wentz to rebound in what could be an underrated shootout in Philly this Sunday.
