NFL betting may favor the Seattle Seahawks this week as they host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers but taking the Seahawks has not been something most gamblers have done this season.
Seattle has been a huge disappointment in pro football betting and they are only favored in this game because Tampa Bay is even worse.
NFL betting has Seattle as a 6.5 point favorite with a total of 39. Seattle is coming off another horrible performance last week as they were routed 34-7 at Houston. Head coach Jim Mora Jr. was very upset about the pro football betting loss. "I’m very discouraged right now. I’m as discouraged now as I’ve been in any game of my career," Mora said. The offensive line for Seattle has been a real problem as quarterback Matt Hasselbeck rarely gets time to throw. "I’m going to consider changing all five spots," Mora said. "We are discussing the possibilities. It’s too early for me to say specifically what those may be. We have to be prepared to shake it up."
Things are bad for Seattle in pro football betting but the Bucs are worse. Tampa has lost 16 of their last 17 games. They were routed last week in NFL betting 26-3 by the New York Jets. The offense has simply been abysmal. They had only 15 yards of total offense in the first half last week and only 124 for the NFL betting game. "It’s all on me," rookie quarterback Josh Freeman said. "I’m the quarterback. I’ve got to find a way." The defense hasn’t been any better for the Bucs in NFL betting as they are allowing 27.4 points per game.
Seattle is 4-2 at home this season while the Bucs have lost eight straight on the road. The Bucs are 2-7 all-time vs. Seattle. Tampa Bay has not been very good in any NFL betting situation this season. The Buccaneers are 4-9 ATS in their last 13 games as an NFL betting underdog. They are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 NFL betting games in December.
The Seahawks are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games as an NFL betting favorite. The Seahawks are 6-2-1 vs. the NFL betting line in their last 9 home games. The Seahawks are 9-4 in pro football betting in their last 13 games in December.
The last four Tampa Bay games have gone under in NFL betting. Eight of the last eleven Seattle home games have gone under the total. The last six meetings in this series have all gone under in NFL betting.
