This is one of the few times this season that NBC does not have a marquee NFL betting matchup on Sunday night. The Bucs will be a solid home favorite in Week 7 NFL odds considering they are 4-2 while the Seahawks are 1-4.
Football betting history shows that these teams have been six times since 1994 with the Seahawks winning five of the six games. Seattle is also 4-2 versus the NFL betting number in those games. The teams met last year in Seattle and the Seahawks won 20-6 according to football betting numbers. The tables could be turned this season as the Seahawks are looking like a team that will miss the playoffs while the Bucs are definite contenders in the NFC. Everything has gone wrong for Seattle this season from injuries to a porous defense. The last year for head coach Mike Holmgren was expected to be a good one in Seattle but it has turned into a nightmare. What also hurts Seattle in this matchup is that they do not do well as road underdogs in football betting. Even when the Seahawks were good they struggled on the road in football betting. They have lost almost 70% of the time as road dogs the past three seasons according to NFL betting stats. On the other hand, the Bucs have been solid home favorites the past three seasons, hitting over 60% of the time according to football betting stats.
If you are looking at the football betting total in this matchup you should know that five of the six meetings between the two teams since 1994 have gone under the total including the last five in a row. In fact, the teams have not cleared 30 points in any of the last five meetings according to NFL betting stats. There is one warning note about playing the game under though in football betting. The Seahawks have been a fabulous over team on the road in recent seasons according to football betting stats. They have gone over the total more than 70% of the time in their road games the past three seasons according to football betting stats. The Bucs are just 50-50 in terms of over/unders at home according to football betting stats.
