Football Betting – Saints Heavily Favored at Home vs. Seahawks

The biggest line in football betting this week is on the game between the Seattle Seahawks and New Orleans Saints.

The Saints are laying 12 points at home to the Seahawks in NFL football betting at the Sbg global sportsbook.

Seattle 5-4 SU & ATS
The Seahawks looked dead before their win last week against Arizona.  It was thought that Seattle was the worst 4-4 team in NFL history.  Seattle turned things around last week though and routed Arizona by a score of 36-18. The Seahawks now lead the NFC West. Quarterback Matt Hasselbeck suffered a cracked bone in his left wrist in that game but he is expected to play in this game on Sunday. Seattle still is struggling on offense overall but last week against Arizona they did break out with Hasselbeck throwing for 333 yards. Wide receiver Mike Williams had a career-high 11 catches for 145 yards. Seattle’s defense played well last week but that has not normally been the case. They are 27th in the league in yards allowed.

New Orleans 6-3 SU, 4-5 ATS
The Saints have turned things around after a slow start winning two straight. Things could get even better as New Orleans is expected to get running back Reggie Bush back this week.  He adds the explosiveness that the Saints have been missing since he has been out of the lineup.  The Saints are only 15th in points scored this season but the return of Bush should help. New Orleans has played well on defense as they are 4th in the league in fewest points allowed. The Saints had a bye last week and should be very focused against a Seattle team that looks in way over their head in this game. 

Seattle-New Orleans Trends
The Seahawks are 3-11 in football betting in their last 14 road games. The Saints are 5-13 ATS in their last 18 vs. the NFC. The Saints are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games as a favorite of 10.5 or more. Trends for the total indicate that the Over is 6-1 in the Seahawks last 7 games in November. The Over is 5-1 in the Saints last 6 games following a bye week. In this series, the Under is 4-1 in NFL football betting in the last 5 meetings.
