The Seattle Seahawks and Carolina Panthers meet Sunday in week 15 NFL action at Bank of America Stadium.
The Seattle Seahawks look to stay hot after winning eight of their last 10 games. The Seattle Seahawks have won five of their last six road games. Russell Wilson is completing 66.8 percent of his passes for 3,422 yards, 26 touchdowns and five interceptions. Wilson has two or more touchdown passes in 19 of his last 25 games. Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf have combined for 1,657 receiving yards and 11 touchdowns while Will Dissly has 23 receptions. The Seattle Seahawks ground game is averaging 140.8 yards per contest, and Chris Carson leads the way with 1,057 yards and five touchdowns. Defensively, Seattle is allowing 24.7 points and 375.5 yards per game. Bobby Wagner leads the Seattle Seahawks with 129 tackles, Mychal Kendricks has three sacks and Tre Flowers has three interceptions.
The Carolina Panthers need a win to snap a five-game losing streak. The Carolina Panthers have split their last four home games. Kyle Allen is completing 62.2 percent of his passes for 2,750 yards, 16 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. Allen enters this game with 407 career pass attempts under his belt. DJ Moore and Christian McCaffrey have combined for 1,787 receiving yards and eight touchdowns while Curtis Samuel has 45 receptions. The Carolina Panthers ground game is averaging 118.9 yards per contest, and McCaffrey leads the way with 1,220 yards and 12 touchdowns. Defensively, Carolina is allowing 27.7 points and 373.9 yards per game. Luke Kuechly leads the Carolina Panthers with 114 tackles, Mario Addison has 9.5 sacks and James Bradberry has three interceptions.
The Seahawks are 10-3 ATS in their last 13 road games, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. NFC and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Panthers are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 home games, 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games in December and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The over is 15-7 in Seahawks last 22 games overall. The over is 7-2 in Panthers last 9 games overall. The under is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings in Carolina. The over is 5-0 in the last 5 meetings.
The Seattle Seahawks have been money SU and ATS on the road dating back to last season and a loss to a desperate LA Rams squad doesn't knock me off the bandwagon. The Carolina Panthers have lost six of their last seven games and three of those losses came by double digits. The Panthers have little to rely on offensively outside of McCaffrey and the defense is starting to slip as well during this losing stretch. I'll back the Seahawks here with the line under a full touchdown.
