Seattle Seahawks at Green Bay Packers (-4): O/U 46 points (-110/-110)
The depleted Seattle Seahawks went into to Philly, to face an even more depleted Eagles team, and came away with a 17-9 win. Philadelphia lost QB Carson Wentz early in the game, thanks to a cheap shot from Jadeveon Clowney, but the Seattle offense could not get enough going to allow this to be a comfortable game. The Seahawks are now 8-1 on the road this season with their only loss being at the Rams and notable wins over Philadelphia, twice, and at San Francisco. Seattle is 8-8-1 against the spread and the both the over and under has hit in eight of their games this season.
Green Bay earned a first round bye thanks to a Week 17 win over the Detroit Lions and a little help from the San Francisco 49ers. The Packers slept walk through the Detroit game and trailed 17-3 at the half to the lowly Lions. Green Bay fought back and ended up winning 23-20 thanks to a Mason Crosby walk-off 33 yard field goal. The Packers went 7-1 at home in the regular season with a notable win over Minnesota and their only loss coming to the Philadelphia Eagles. The Green Bay Packers are 10-6 against the spread and the under has hit in 10 of their 16 games this season.
Series History: Seattle won the most recent meeting, but Green Bay leads the all-time series 13-9.
ATS Pick: I was not impressed with Seattle last week, so I am backing Green Bay -4 in this one.
