Betting on the Seattle Seahawks (7-5 SU, 5-6-1 ATS)
Seattle rolled all over Minnesota en route to a commanding 38-7 win as a 2.5-point road favorite. Quarterback Russell Wilson has a fantastic game by completing 21 of 27 passes for 274 yards and three touchdowns while running back Thomas Rawls rushed 19 times for 101 yards and one score. “Just a really complete victory,” Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said. “A lot of guys did good stuff. Playing this well from start to finish, it was a nice accomplishment against a good club.” Wide receiver Doug Baldwin caught five passes for 94 yards and two scores and the Seahawks forced Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater into a horrible performance while limiting Adrian Peterson to just 18 yards on eight carries. “I just think the defense, the way we are playing the way we play, and the offense, the way they are playing right now, that there’s really not a team that can beat us,” Seahawks middle linebacker Bobby Wagner said. Wilson has thrown 11 touchdown passes and zero interceptions over his last three games while tossing five TD passes to Baldwin alone during the stretch. “I think we’ve been resilient all year and I think it’s starting to show up right now,” Wilson said. “We’ve stayed the course and we have guys who can make so many different plays, that’s the fun part for me playing quarterback; who gets the ball right now? We have so many different guys who can get the ball in the end zone and make things happen.”
Betting on the Baltimore Ravens (4-8 SU, 3-7-2 ATS)
The Ravens are coming off a narrow 15-13 loss against mediocre Miami last week, but managed to cover the spread as a 3.5-point road dog. Veteran quarterback Matt Schaub completed 32 of 46 passes for 308 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions. With Schaub banged-up from last week’s outing and missing practice for the majority of the week, Baltimore could turn to veteran backup Jimmy Clausen against the Seahawks. Ironically, all of Baltimore’s games this season have been decided by eight points or fewer, marking a first in league history. “It was a tough game,” Ravens receiver Kamar Aiken said. “We didn’t do enough to get the W.”
Seahawks vs Ravens Game Analysis
Let me get right to the point by saying that I like the Seattle Seahawks to roll all over the Baltimore Ravens in this contest to easily cover the spread. Seattle has won three straight and five of six overall and are currently playing their best football of the season at just the right time. The Ravens are coming off a listless loss against the lowly Dolphins last week, so I’m not expecting Baltimore to find its way into the end zone very often in this contest, if at all. The Seahawks are 6-2 ATS in their last eight games against a team with a losing record and 15-5-1 ATS in their last 21 games in the month of December. The Ravens are 3-7-2 ATS in their last dozen games, 1-6-2 ATS in their last nine games following an SU loss and a pitiful 0-7-1 ATS in their last eight home games. Keep it simple and back the streaking Seattle Seahawks to win and cash in!
