At the beginning of the season Green Bay and Seattle were tabbed as playoff teams. However, both clubs are struggling to keep their heads above water. More emphatically a playoff berth for the Packers and Seahawks is no sure thing. A clear difference has been discovered between hype and reality. Much of the NFL betting respect for both teams is based on the past. Not withstanding their success of past years, the current season brings a new harsh reality. The best days of Green Bay and Seattle are clearly behind them. Indeed, there are better NFC contending teams.

Packers vs. Seahawks TV Coverage: FOX
Seattle enters this week with a mark of 4-5 straight up and 5-3-1 vs. the odds. Additionally, the Seahawks have gone under six out of nine games. Last week Seattle got the money in a 36-31 loss at the Rams as 10-point dogs. Of great concern for the Seahawks is a rapidly expanding injury list. In comparison to most teams Seattle is battered and bruised. Overall the Seahawks have NFL rankings of 22nd for total offense and 12th for defense. Quarterback Russell Wilson remains a top asset. To show he has a 110.2 rating with 21 touchdowns and five interceptions.
Green Bay Packers
Green Bay is 4-4-1 straight up but 4-5-1 against the line with five games going over the total. Last Sunday the Packers throttled the Dolphins 31-12 for their second payout in three weeks. Granted, the offseason front office and coaching changes made news. But their actual affect on the Packers has been marginal. Green Bay remains a one-man team led by quarterback Aaron Rodgers. More emphatically Rodgers has a 100.0 rating with 17 touchdowns and just one interception. Next, the defense has improved over last year to rank 10th overall. Green Bay is simply on a playoff tight rope.
Stats to Consider
Green Bay has been a weak NFL betting value as a road dog. For example, the Packers have paid in just one of their last five games as an away pup. Nine of Green Bay’s last 11 as road dogs went over the total. Balanced against that is Seattle’s poor marks as a home chalk recently. The Seahawks have covered only one of their last six in that situation. And three of their last five in that place have gone under the total.
Team vs Team
Green Bay has had recent control of the cashier’s cage against the Seahawks. Three of the last five in this offshore betting series have gone over the total. Contrarily the Seahawks have paid in two of their last three home games with Green Bay. The last two games between these teams at Seattle have gone over the number.
Matchup to Watch
Certainly, Seattle is the NFL betting favorite based on their home field reputation with the betting public. Moreover, this matchup is pretty much even. For this purpose, the host is always the smart place to start.
