Pittsburgh at Seattle
Sunday 11/29 04:25 PM Eastern
1.5 units on Seattle -3.5 (-105) (risk 1.5 to return 2.93) RESULT: WIN
The Seattle Seahawks don't appear to be as good as the last two years when they reached the Super Bowl, winning it once, and just missing last year. I think we heard some of those same rumblings around this time last year when Seattle started the season at 3-3, and stood at 6-4 through 10 games, just a game better than where they are right now. All that team did was win eight straight games, and just missed repeating in the Super Bowl. The Seahawks covered seven straight games after starting 6-4. They are still generating positive numbers all the way around, winning both sides from the line of scrimmage, and out-gaining their opponent by 64 yards per game. Pittsburgh has been good offensively, but has not been very "Steelers-like" on defense, and that is where the edge is to be had in this one. The Seahawks play extremely well at home, and have the defensive tools to shut down the Steelers offense. Seattle owns a 35-17-2 ATS mark on field turf, and as you know, most of that has been done at home.Lay the points on Seattle.
