Seattle at St. Louis

2 units on Seattle +3 (-110) (risk 2 to return 3.82) RESULT: WIN
St. Louis is 1-3 yet for some reason people still don't get it. They are favorites despite the obvious fact that they are not very good. They've played one good team this season in the New York Giants. How do you lose to San Francisco and Arizona and barely beat Tennessee and remain a favorite here? Mike Martz is having health issues and has been missing practice. That can't be good. What a struggling team needs is strength and stability at the top. Not a coach who is in-and-out. He wasn't even able to watch game film with his players this week. St. Louis, as always, has a good offense (at least a good passing offense). But their defense is again bad. They are ranked 25th in the league in yards given up and they have allowed 27+ points in three of the four games so far! Seattle should take advantage of that given their offensive success so far (2nd in the league in offense). The Hawks are 2-2 but would be 3-1 if their game winning field goal last week didn't hit the upright. They went on to lose to Washington but they are better than a .500 club. Visiting underdogs fare very well ATS vs. opponents who have allowed 25+ points two weeks in a row. Take the better team plus the points for two stars.
