The Seattle Seahawks and Philadelphia Eagles meet Sunday in week 12 NFL action at Lincoln Financial Field.
The Seattle Seahawks look to stay hot after winning six of their last seven games. The Seattle Seahawks have won all five road games this season. Russell Wilson is completing 68.5 percent of his passes for 2,737 yards, 23 touchdowns and two interceptiosn. Wilson has two or more touchdown passes in 18 of his last 22 games. Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf have combined for 1,398 receiving yards and 11 touchdowns while Will Dissly has 23 receptions. The Seattle Seahawks ground game is averaging 133.2 yards per contest, and Chris Carson leads the way with 853 yards and four touchdowns. Defensively, Seattle is allowing 25.4 points and 372.9 yards per game. Bobby Wagner leads the Seattle Seahawks with 97 tackles, Mychal Kendricks has three sacks and Tedric Thompson has two interceptions.
The Philadelphia Eagles need a big win here to get a game above a .500 record. The Philadelphia Eagles have won three of their last five home games. Carson Wentz is completing 61.2 percent of his passes for 2,274 yards, 16 touchdowns and four interceptions. Wentz has two or more touchdown passes in 12 of his last 20 games. Zach Ertz and Alshon Jeffery have combined for 974 receiving yards and five touchdowns while Nelson Agholor has 36 receptions. The Philadelphia Eagles ground game is averaging 122.7 yards per contest, and Josh Howard leads the way with 525 yards and six touchdowns. Defensively, Philadelphia is allowing 23 points and 323.5 yards per game. Rodney McLeod leads the Philadelphia Eagles with 52 tackles, Brandon Graham has six sacks and Nathan Gerry has two interceptions.
The Seahawks are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 road games, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games in Week 12 and 4-0-1 ATS in their last 5 games in November. The Eagles are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games in November, 2-5 ATS in their last 7 vs. NFC and 6-2 ATS vs. a team with a winning record. The Seahawks are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 meetings in Philadelphia and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 meetings. The under is 13-5 in Eagles last 18 home games. The over is 14-5 in Seahawks last 19 games overall.
The Seattle Seahawks are 7-0 ATS in their last seven games as a road underdog. The Philadelphia Eagles are 3-8-1 ATS in their last 12 games as a home favorite. Let's just cut to the chase right now and say I'm not sure why in the hell the Seattle Seahawks are underdogs in this spot. The Seahawks are one of the hotter teams in the league, are 5-0 SU on the road and have had an extra week to prepare for this game. The Philadelphia Eagles just looked lot offensively last week against New England and that will continue with a banged up Alshon Jeffery, Jordan Howard and no Desean Jackson. Oddsmakers keep giving the Seahawks these weird lines and I'll continue to not ask questions.
