The Seahawks are 10-3-1 ATS in their last 14 road games, 2-5 ATS in their last 7 playoff games and 0-3-1 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Eagles are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 playoff games, 6-0 ATS in their last 6 games in January and 5-12 ATS in their last 17 games as a home underdog. The over is 13-6-1 in Seahawks last 20 vs. NFC. The under is 16-5 in Eagles last 21 home games. The Seahawks are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 meetings in Philadelphia and 5-0 ATS in their last 5 meetings. The road team is 7-3 ATS in their last 10 meetings. The favorite is 7-3 ATS in their last 10 meetings. The under is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings.

The Seattle Seahawks should probably be the favorites because they're simply the healthier team. The Philadelphia Eagles are banged up on the offensive side of the ball and you hav to go back to their week 8 win over the Buffalo Bills the last time they beat a playoff team. With that said, the Seahawks have looked shaky the last couple of weeks, have no running game and the defense has looked slow to react at times as well. Home field matters in playoff games and we should remember what the Philadelphia Eagles did the last time they were doubted in the postseason. The Eagles have the defense to grind out a victory. I want the home team.
