Detroit Lions vs. Seattle Seahawks Preview

Oddsmakers currently have the Seahawks listed as 8-point favorites versus the Lions, while the game’s total is sitting at 43.

Seattle won its last outing, a 25-23 result against the 49ers on January 01. The Seahawks failed to cover in that game as a -11.5-point favorite, while the 48 combined points took the game OVER the total.

Detroit was a 31-24 loser in its last match at home against the Packers. They failed to cover the +3.5-point spread as underdogs, while the total score of 55 sent OVER bettors to the payout window.

Detroit: (9-7 SU,8-8 ATS)

Detroit hasn’t won a playoff game since 1991. The Lions’ last postseason road win was in 1957. Offensively, Detroit’s running game is almost non-existent. It doesn’t help that your quarterback has hurt his finger and just isn’t the same. The Lions offense has struggled at times this year and they will be going against a defense that can dominate at home.

Defensively, the Lions are quite vulnerable through the air, partially because they struggle to generate adequate pressure. Since Russel Wilson is now healthy he will be able to take advantage of the Lions secondary and look for a couple of deep passes that can break the game open.

Seattle: (10-5-1 SU,7-8-1 ATS)

The Seahawks enjoy what is currently the best home-field advantage in the NFL. The Seahawks have won their last nine home playoff games and have never lost a postseason game in Seattle under Pete Carroll and Russell Wilson.

The Seahawks defense can dominate at home. However, thye aren’t the same without All-Pro safety Earl Thomas. They’ve given up 32 points per game the last three weeks to Green Bay, Arizona and San Francisco. In this game they will get help by going against a one dimensional Lions offense with an injured quarterback.

Detroit Lions vs Seattle Seahawks
Wild Card Game Prediction: Seattle -8

The Lions are going to have trouble scoring points in this game. Matthew Stafford has clearly been affected by his finger injury, and now he has to go on the road and playing outdoors in cold and rainy weather. The Seahawks have averaged 28.4 points in home games and they face the 32nd-ranked DVOA Lions defense. This game could get ugly and you might find some value in a prop bet on Seattle at -13.5 points.

Score Prediction:
Seattle 31 – Detroit 13
