Series HistoryIncluding the postseason, it will be the seventh time the two teams have played since 2012. It will be the fifth consecutive season the two teams have played during the regular season. Green Bay has won three straight over Seattle, including a, 17-9, victory in Week 1 last season.In the game to open last year, Green Bay defensive lineman Mike Daniels’ strip sack of Russell Wilson deep in Seattle territory in the third quarter set up Ty Montgomery’s 6-yard touchdown run on the next play to spark the Packers’ win. Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was 28 of 42 for 311 yards and added a 32-yard touchdown pass to Jordy Nelson to make it an eight-point game late in the third quarter. Wilson was held to 14 of 27 for 158 yards. The Packers held decisive edges in total yardage (370-225) and first downs (26-12). Green Bay held the ball for 39 minutes.
Why Bet on Green Bay?The Packers have yet to win on the road but are unbeaten at home following Sunday’s 31-12 win over Miami. Aaron Jones handled 15 carries for a career-high 145 yards and two touchdowns, tacking on three catches for 27 yards. Jones was averaging a league-high 6.0 YPC heading into Sunday, and yet somehow increased that mark to 6.76 YPC at the end of the day.Aaron Rodgers completed 19-of-28 passes for 199 yards and two touchdowns. Both touchdown tosses went to Davante Adams, who’s now tallied nine scores on the year. The Packers’ passing attack admittedly appeared shaky at times, but it wasn’t needed on this day. Rodgers is now on pace for 4,872 yards and a 30:1 TD/INT ratio.For years, Rodgers has said his goal is to go 8-0 at home and at least split on the road to go 12-4. Instead, the Packers are 4-0-1 at Lambeau and 0-4 away from it. And their next two games are Thursday at Seattle, where they’re 1-4 since CenturyLink Field opened in 2002; and at Minnesota, where they’re 0-2 since U.S. Bank Stadium debuted in 2016.Too early in the week for Mike McCarthy to offer any injury updates on defensive back Kentrell Brice (ankle) or linebacker Nick Perry (knee) even with the quick turnaround to Thursday’s game at Seattle. “The injuries are individual specific, but we would give them up until Thursday to have an opportunity to play in the game,” McCarthy said. The expectation is that kick returner Trevor Davis will debut Thursday at Seattle after coming off IR (hamstring).
Why Bet on Seattle?The Seahawks played the Rams tough for the second time this year but lost close again 36-31 on Sunday. Brandin Cooks rushed for a 9-yard touchdown with 5:49 to play on the first snap after Dante Fowler forced and recovered a fumble by Russell Wilson.Wilson completed 17-of-26 passes for 176 yards and three touchdowns, adding nine carries for 92 additional yards. The 92 rushing yards were Wilson’s most since Nov. 2014. With the Rams declining to spy, Wilson was tucking and running often in the second half. It nearly propelled the Seahawks to a road upset, but Wilson could not convert a potential game-winning drive.Rashaad Penny rushed for 108 yards and a touchdown in the injury absence of Chris Carson for the Seahawks., who had 273 yards rushing at the Coliseum after racking up 190 yards on the ground in their 33-31 loss to the Rams last month in Seattle. Mike Davis rushed 11 times for 58 yards, adding four receptions for 22 additional yards and a touchdown.“Today he busted out,” Pete Carroll said of Penny, the team’s 2018 first-round pick. “I thought today he needed it so badly. He knows he’s a great player. He just hasn’t been able to demonstrate it.”Since Carroll took over as coach in 2010, the Seahawks have played 16 home primetime games and they’ve gone 14-2 straight-up and 13-3 against the spread. In addition, no team flying two or more time zones west for a Thursday game has ever won or covered since the current version of Thursday Night Football came into existence in 2006. Over the past 12 years, this has happened 11 times and the team flying west has gone 0-11 both SU and ATS.
