Packers vs Seahawks NFL Week 11 Odds & Prediction

Posted by Derrick Harper on November 15, 2018 in

The Packers have been reeling until they got a victory against the Phins last week. The Seahawks looked to be on the downward trend, but as of late, they are one of the hottest teams in the sport winning four of six going into yesterday’s matchup with the L.A. Rams. The only two losses in that stretch came in one possession contests against both teams from L.A. The real story here is that the Packers needed a boost, they got the Dolphins at home last week. The Seahawks are now coming off of yet another close, but no cigar loss, now 0-3 against teams from L.A., losing each by a touchdown or less. They are NFL Betting favorites for Packers vs Seahawks on Thursday Night.

Packers vs Seahawks NFL Week 11 Odds & Prediction

Seattle Favorites at Home

The Seahawks are favorites by just under a field goal. Their stadium has proven to be one of the biggest home-field advantages in the league. On top of all of that, they have been steadily looking better, while the Packers have been looking worse and worse leading up to this meeting.

Each of the past three meetings has ended with the Packers on top. The Packers have accounted for wins in 2017 by a score of 17 – 9, a win in December of 2016 with a score of 38 – 10, and a win in 2015 by a tally of 27 – 17.

Rodgers Against Seattle Defense

The Packers have the sixth-best passing attack in the league thanks to Aaron Rodgers. The offense is a bit one-sided, however, as their rushing attack measures up as the 20th best. Total offensive production still finds itself in the sixth overall position though. The Packers have a slightly above average defense with a 15th place ranking.

The Seahawks are nearly the opposite in every given category. They are 3rd in overall rushing yardage, but a woeful 27th in passing. Despite their efforts to gain yards on the ground, their total offense is a meager 26th ranking. Their defense is a stout one, coming in as the seventh-best unit in the sport.

Packers vs Seahawks is going to be a great Thursday Night game.

The Seahawks will have a tough time defending Rodgers and the potent air attack of the Packers with their defensive back end at less than full strength with the injury to Bradley McDougald. Delano Hill, a rookie from Michigan will enter the games in his place. The other news of note is that the Seahawks owner passed away and the team will inevitably be sold. It is only a matter of time for that transaction to transpire.

The Packers have seemingly given up on several once promising young players, including Ha Ha Clinton-Dix and Ty Montgomery. They were once the favorites on the NFC North division and now find themselves in the basement of the league.

Expert Pick for Packers vs Seahawks

You cannot keep a guy like Rodgers down for long. I expect him to continue his magic against Seattle. I’m a firm believer that if your quarterback is good enough, you can be a .500 team on that alone. Well, I think A-Rod is good enough. The Packers don’t have much else to offer, but they do still have Jimy Graham, Randall Cobb, and DaVante Adams, so they will undoubtedly score points. I’ll take them to win outright and obviously cover.
