The Seattle Seahawks are coming off of a convincing victory against the Detroit Lions in the Wild Card round of the NFL playoffs. The next task will be to defeat the Falcons in their home stadium. Russell Wilson has been inconsistent this year. In some games, he looks like the NFL MVP.
In other games, Wilson hasn’t looked in sync with all of this receivers. Compare this to the Falcons and Matt Ryan, who have been consistent all season long. In Week 5 of the 2016-2017 NFL Season, the Falcons traveled to Seattle and subsequently lost by a final score of Seahawks 26, Falcons 24.
This will be an interesting game for the Seahawks. Although the Falcons are being given 5 points, its still entirely possible that the Seahawks could lock down their defense and put Matt Ryan into compromising spots.
All throughout the week, the betting odds have been going in favor of the Falcons. Websites like Bovada and MyBookie have the Falcons listed as a 4-5 point favorite. Another interesting aspect of this game is the over/under line. Last time these two teams played, these teams were able to hit the over. Expect a similar outcome in this game as the point total line is 51 ½.
