Eagles vs. Seahawks Prediction
Will the red-hot Philadelphia Eagles survive a cross-country trip this week when they visit the Seattle Seahawks at 8:30 p.m. ET? Will the Eagles cover in this Sunday night matchup?
Who Oddsmakers Like: Philadelphia. According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Eagles are 5-point road favorites to beat the Seahawks, who opened as 6-point home underdogs. As for the total, the number currently sits at 48 points after hitting the board at 47.
Who the Public Likes: Philadelphia. As of Sunday morning, the Eagles are receiving just under 60% of the betting tickets.
Who the Trends Like: The favorite and the road team…but not the Eagles. The favorite is 7-2 against the spread in the last nine meetings between these two teams and the road squad has covered in seven of the last nine meetings. That said, the Eagles are just 1-5 against the spread in their last six games versus the Seahawks.
Who We Like: Philadelphia. The Eagles are a perfect 8-0 against the spread in their last eight games coming off a win and are 12-2 against the number in their last 14 games overall. They're also 5-1 against the spread in their last six road games and are 7-0 against the number in their last seven games coming off an ATS win.
It's tempting to take the Seahawks with the points at home but they just lost two weeks ago on Monday night as a home dog to the Falcons. Russell Wilson is incredible, so much so that he deserves to be in the MVP discussion. But he's going to be running for his life again tonight as that ferocious Philly pass-rush gets after him. The Eagles will be relentless on defense and I just don't see how Wilson beats the top team by himself.
