Washington at Seattle

Sunday 11/23 04:15 PM Eastern

3 units on Seattle +3.5 (-115) (risk 3 to return 3)  RESULT: WIN

What has happened to the Skins? They opened the season looking great, winning four of their first five with the only loss coming to the Giants. Since then they have gone just 2-3 however with wins coming over Cleveland and Detroit. In their last five games they have averaged just 14.4 points per game. Last week, despite Clinton Portis playing, they managed just 10 points against a weak Dallas defense. I was on Seattle last week, assuming with Hasselbeck, Branch and Engram back, the Seattle offense would again be clicking. That prediction was at least a week too early but this could be the week for the Seahawks. I do expect the offense to perform better here. The Skins are just 2-10 ATS the past three seasons vs. losing teams. In their last 15 games as a road favorite of a field goal or more, they are just 3-12 ATS. I just don't think a team that is struggling offensively as much as Washington should be favored on the road and I'll back the home dog here.
