Seattle Seahawks vs. Detroit Lions NFL Football Betting Picks
With only 6-games under their belt in the 2018 NFL football betting season, it’s pretty clear that the Seattle Seahawks are a shade of their former selves. After they threw away the opportunity to win back-to-back Super Bowls, Seattle has never really recovered. Furthermore, their Legion of Boom defense quickly fell apart piece by piece. As of right now, Seattle is sitting at .500 and is trying to see if there’s any way they can sneak into the playoffs. Naturally, a win in this Sunday’s Seattle Seahawks vs. Detroit Lions would go a long way for Seattle. So what kind of sportsbook betting odds are they facing on the road this upcoming Sunday?

The Seahawks fly into this weekend’s matchup sporting a 3-3 record that ranks them as the 2nd best team in the NFC West. Since the division is led by the 7-0 Los Angeles Rams, it’s pretty clear that Seattle will not be winning the division this season. Nevertheless, there’s still hope for a Wild Card berth this season. But to get into the playoffs, the Seahawks will need to play more consistent football. All in all Seattle kicked the season off with back-to-back losses but bounced back by winning back-to-back games afterwards. Later on they missed an opportunity to upset the Rams and are now 1-1 in their last two matchups. While their record doesn’t suggest it, Seattle has been playing some pretty good football as of late. The only question now is whether or not they can maintain that pace this on the road this upcoming Sunday.
Players to Watch: Russell Wilson (1,308 passing yards, 13 TD, 4 INT), Chris Carson (352 rushing yards, 1 TD, 1 F), and Tyler Lockett (360 receiving yards, 5 TD, 23 REC).
The Lions pounce into this Week 8 contest flashing a 3-3 record that pegs them as the 3rd best team in the NFC North. Right now the division is led by the 4-2-1 Minnesota Vikings, so Detroit is very much alive in the divisional race. As for this weekend’s matchup, it’s clear that neither side has too big of an advantage. On offense the Lions are looking a little better since they’re scoring 26.2 to Seattle’s 23.8. Defensively however, Seattle is superior. Right now the Seahawks are giving up 19.5 per game, which blows the 26.3 that Detroit allots out of the water. The Lions may bring a 2-game winning streak into this Sunday’s contest but that doesn’t guarantee they’ll have a good outing against Russell Wilson & Co.
Players to Watch: Matthew Stafford (1,602 passing yards, 12 TD, 5 INT), Kerryon Johnson (444 rushing yards, 1 TD, 0 F), and Golden Tate (467 receiving yards, 3 TD, 37 REC).
