Seattle at Baltimore NFL Betting Game Predictions and Preview

Posted by Aaron . on December 11, 2015 in

The Seattle Seahawks look to be peaking at the right time, as they have won three games in a row, both straight up and against the spread. They head to Baltimore looking for their fourth straight NFL betting win, and they are favored to win by five points.

Reasons to pick Seattle to cover:

Last week, the Seahawks completely dominated a Minnesota Vikings team that has played well this year, winning 38-7 in Minneapolis. Seattle was up 21-0 at halftime and 35-0 before the Vikings returned a kickoff for their only touchdown. They outgained the Vikings 433-125 and won the time of possession battle by a whopping 10 minutes. They are looking a lot more like realistic Super Bowl contenders than they did just a week ago.

Should you consider picking the Ravens here?

The Ravens did cover the spread last week in a 15-13 loss to the Dolphins last week, as they mounted a comeback from being down 15-0, but they missed a 55-yard field goal that would have given them the lead. They did outgain Miami 375-219 and had the ball for more than 38 minutes. However, the Seahawks are a lot better than the Dolphins, so I expect the Seahawks to run roughshod over Baltimore this week.

Seahawks @ Ravens NFL Betting Prediction

If you look at the trends, home underdogs in the NFL went 0-7 straight up and 1-6 against the spread last week. Seattle is 8-0 against the spread in their last eight December road games as they have a trend of finishing seasons well. Look for them to do the same in Baltimore on Sunday.
