Seahawks vs. Bucs Pick
Will Sunday's game between the Seahawks and Bucs go over the betting total or fall under for bettors at 4:05PM ET?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Bucs are 6-point home underdogs versus the Seahawks while the over/under currently sits at 45 points. While the total hasn't moved off the original number of 45, the point spread went from 5.5 up to 6.
The Seahawks won their third consecutive game last Sunday and also covered for the third straight time while beating the Eagles 26-15 as a 6.5-point home favorite. That win improved Seattle's record to 7-2-1 on the year and its ATS record to 6-4. The Seahawks are 3-2 against the spread at home this season and have covered in back-to-back games in Seattle.
The Bucs remain in the NFC South hunt thanks to back-to-back wins over the Bears an Chiefs. Tampa Bay has been competitive since starting the season 1-3, as the team has gone 4-2 over its last six games and is 4-2 against the spread over that span as well. The first-place Falcons have a tough matchup against the Cardinals on Sunday so if the Bucs can pull off an upset over the Seahawks, the two teams would share first place in the NFC South.
OUR PREDICTION: The under is 4-1 in the last five meetings between these two teams in Tampa Bay and has covered in seven of the last nine games between these two teams overall, but the over looks like a better play. Seattle is banged-up defensively, with Earl Thomas and Michael Bennett both nursing injuries. Thomas still has a chance to play but if he's out or limited, quarterback Jameis Winston might be able to find crack's in Seattle's secondary. The over is 5-1 in the Bucs' last six home games and has cashed in four of their last five overall. The over is also 5-1 in the Seahawks' last six games in November and their offense is firing on all cylinders right now.
