Eagles vs Seahawks Betting Prediction

The Eagles are coming off of two blowout losses against Dallas and San Francisco, and they will be on the road in a tough environment for this game. Seattle has lost four games in a row, but their last three were against San Francisco (twice) and Dallas. The Seahawks have scored 16 points or fewer in three of their last four games, but will play a Philadelphia defense that has not been great this season. I think this game could be a shootout, but I am going to side with the Eagles in this contest. Philadelphia is the much better team and they have played decently well on the road this season. Take the Eagles here.
