Seattle comes into this game fighting for a playoff spot, but they have lost three games in a row. New York has lost four games in a row and they looked terrible in their last game. I would expect Seattle to come out and win this game, but it is surprising to see them as an underdog here. I will take Seattle, as they have looked like the better team.
