Public Betting Trends
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetNow.eu, the Seahawks are 3-point favorites to beat the Vikings. The total, meanwhile, sits at 46 points. As of this writing, 68% of the public betting tickets are on the Seahawks to cover the point spread.
Stefon Diggs (knee) will play in Week 14 against the Seahawks. This is a tremendous sign for Diggs, as he was taken off the team's injury report Saturday morning. He was only able to muster one limited session before playing a reduced role in Week 13, but should be a full go following his early clearance for Monday night. As always when he's healthy, Diggs is a strong WR2 on an offense that scrapped the run weeks ago.
A source told ESPN's Adam Schefter they "wouldn't think" Doug Baldwin (hip, game-time decision) will play Monday night, but they are "sure he will try." Baldwin has seemingly been on the wrong side of a game-time decision all week, but the Seahawks are going to give him all the way up to warmups to prove he can play. Fantasy players who took the risk on Baldwin need to find an emergency option. David Moore and Jaron Brown are widely available.
