NFL Betting Predictions: Green Bay Packers vs Seattle Seahawks
Interesting Monday Night Football game tonight as the Green Bay Packers travel to take on the Seattle Seahawks who are a tough team to beat at home. BetDSI Sportsbook current live betting lines display the Packers as -3 point favorites over the Seahawks.
Last week the Green Bay Packers pretty much dominated the Chicago Bears 23 – 10 last week behind a defense that tally’d 7 sacks and 4 interceptions. Linebacker Clay Matthews was in the opposing backfield all night with 4 tackles and 3.5 sacks. The secondary was great with defensive back Tramon Williams grabbed two interceptions, and Charles Woodson who has been moved to strong safety this season had a pick as well.
The Packers offense wasn’t exactly electric but got the job done with QB Aaron Rodgers going 22 for 32 for 219 yards a touchdown, and an interception. They finally picked up a work-horse type running back in Cedric Benson who ran 20 times for 81 yards controlling the clock in what is usually a pass happy offense.
The Seattle Seahawks had equal success in a 27-7 domination over the visiting Dallas Cowboys. Rookie QB Russell Wilson showed lots of poise with 15 completions on 20 attempts for 151 yards and a touchdowns. Marshawn Lynch went beast mode all over the Dallas defense with 26 carries for 122 yards and a score.
Seattle’s defense was very impressive holding the Cowboys to just seven points with only one interception and a single sack. Holding Dallas runningback DeMarco Murray to just 44 yards the Seahawks shut down the run throughout the game allowing just 49 yards total rushing.
This is one of those games that everyone writes off the Seattle Seahawks before the season starts as a win for the Green Bay Packers when looking through the schedule. When in reality the Packers could be 1-2 after tonight’s game as the Seahawks are a heck of a tough team to beat at home.
With that being said the Packers defense put on a clinic last week and if they bring that same defense to Seattle they could cause all sorts of problems for rookie QB Russel Wilson. The price just isn’t right for a Green Bay moneyline play here and if you were to take them you should go up against the -3 point spread. If you are going to play Seattle take the +155 moneyline all day, they certainly have a live chance in this one.
