2011 Season NFL Football Past Picks

Atlanta at Seattle

Sunday 10/02 04:05 PM Eastern

3 units on Game Total OVER PICK (risk 3 to return 3)  RESULT: WIN

Seattle's defense looked very good last week, but looking inside the game shows some reasons to expect otherwise this week. The Cardinals' lone weapon is Larry Fitzgerald because Chris Wells was on the sidelines, leaving the Arizona offense with only one playmaker and a suspect running game. That allowed extra attention given to Fitzgerald without a lot of risk of paying the price. Things will be different this week as Sesattle must contend with a trio of playmakers in Roddy White, Julio Jones and Tony Gonzalez, as well as a QB that can deliver. Atlanta came here last year and posted 34 points. A suspect Falcons defense allowed 18 to Seattle. If these teams put up 46 points in this meeting last year, why are 8 less expected this year? The Falcons have been an OVER team at 10-3-2 to the OVER in their last 15. Seattle has also been an OVER team vs. NFC foes, where they are 10-2 to the OVER in their last 12. Seattle is 30-15 OVER in their last 45 games following an upset win. That includes a 15-4 OVER mark if the upset win came at home, as it did last week. Over the past two seasons, Seattle is 13-4 OVER in the underdog role. Take the OVER here.
