The Seattle Seahawks and Atlanta Falcons meet Sunday in NFL action at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
The Seattle Seahawks look for a victory after winning three of their last five games. The Seattle Seahawks have won six of their last eight road games. Russell Wilson is completing 68.3 percent of his passes for 1,945 yards, 15 touchdowns and one interception. Wilson has two or more touchdown passes in 16 of his last 19 games. Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf have combined for 904 receiving yards and six touchdowns while Will Dissly has 23 receptions. The Seattle Seahawks ground game is averaging 127 yards per contest, and Chris Carson leads the way with 569 yards and two touchdowns. Defensively, Seattle is allowing 25.1 points and 357 yards per game. Bobby Wagner leads the Seattle Seahawks with 69 tackles, Quinton Jefferson has two sacks and Tedric Thompson has two interceptions.
The Atlanta Falcons could use a victory here to snap a five-game losing streak. The Atlanta Falcons have split their last eight home games. Matt Ryan is completing 70.9 percent of his passes for 2,170 yards, 15 touchdowns and eight interceptions. Ryan has two or more touchdown passes in 11 of his last 16 games. Julio Jones and Austin Hooper have combined for 1,086 receiving yards and eight touchdowns while Calvin Ridley has 29 receptions. The Atlanta Falcons ground game is averaging 68.4 yards per contest, and Devonta Freeman leads the way with 294 yards on 84 carries. Defensively, Atlanta is allowing 31.9 points and 387.7 yards per game. De’Vondre Campbell leads the Atlanta Falcons with 63 tackles, Grady Jarrett has two sacks and Desmond Trufant has two interceptions.
The Seahawks are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 road games, 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games in October and 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games on grass. The Falcons are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 home games, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 vs. NFC and 8-20 ATS in their last 28 games overall. The road team is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings. The under is 6-1 in Falcons last 7 home games. The over is 12-4 in Seahawks last 16 games overall.
The Seattle Seahawks are 3-3-1 ATS in there last seven games as a road favorite. The Atlanta Falcons have covered eight of their last 10 games as a home underdog. The Atlanta Falcons have shown zero signs of life during this losing streak and the offense seems to be getting worse and more frustrated as things play out. The Seattle Seahawks suffered a hiccup last week, but they've played some of their best football on the road and haven't lost back-to-back games since November of last year. The Atlanta Falcons have zero betting value in their current form, and this line feels rather low given their struggles. I'll lay the points with the Seahawks.
