Seattle: 8-3-1 SU,6-5-1 ATS

Seattle has failed to score a touchdown in three of its road losses this season, including a 14-5 defeat at Tampa Bay in Week 12, but at home they had a season high point total in a 40-7 beating of Carolina last week. Running back Thomas Rawls, in his third game back since missing two months with a broken leg, put a jolt in the ground game by rushing for 106 yards and a pair of touchdowns on only 15 carries. However, this week Rawls will go against a sturdy Green Bay defense that allows just 92.9 rushing yards per game this season. Another second-year player, wide receiver Tyler Lockett, broke off a 75-yard scoring run last week while adding five catches on 63 yards to provide a deep threat. Safety Earl Thomas suffered a broken leg last week, but the Seahawks are permitting a league-low 16.2 yards per game.

On defense, containing Aaron Rodgers is the top priority for the Seahawks. The Seahawks were outstanding in silencing Carolina’s offense. They limited Cam Newton and company to a pathetic total of 182 passing yards. A bit of concern, however, for Seattle’s stop unit is the injury to Earl Thomas, whose season is over with a leg injury. When he was out against the Saints they were able to take advantage of his absence.

Green Bay: 6-6 SU,5-6-1 ATS

Despite the lack of a rushing attack, Rodgers has raised his level of play by throwing for seven touchdowns and zero interceptions over the past three games while registering a passer rating of at least 108.9 in all three. No. 1 wideout Jordy Nelson, who missed the 2015 season with a torn ACL, hauled in his 10th touchdown reception in last week’s win over Houston.

Aaron Rodgers put up a clinic against the Texans, completing 20 of 30 passes for 209 yards and two touchdowns and no interceptions. Rodgers has definitely put the team on his back of late, as evidenced by his QB rating of 100.1 in November, the first time since 2015 that he reached that mark within a month.

Green Bay has one of the league’s top run defenses at 92.9 yards per game, but it is vulnerable through the air (254.3) yards and is surrendering nine more points per game than Seattle at 25.2.

Green Bay vs Seattle

Free Pick: Packers +3

The Packers have won their last two home games while allowing just 23 total points and 496 total yards. The Seahawks have extreme home-road splits, and the majority of their performances away from Seattle have been ugly. They have lost to three teams with losing records, while their road win over New England stands out because it was a prime time game that the public gambler should remember. The Seahawks loss of Earl Thomas is critical in a matchup against a heavy pass attack like the Packers.

Seattle will have to play the Rams in a division game on Thursday, so this is a good time to fade them, especially as road favorites against a quality opponent.
