Seattle Seahawks vs New England Patriots
Tonight will be a rematch of Super Bowl XLIX from two seasons ago! The Seattle Seahawks will travel back to Gillette Stadium with a 5-2-1 record as they seeking to get their revenge. They are coming off an impressive win against the Buffalo Bills last week! The Seahawks hold a 48-28-1 record in primetime games, a 19-13-1 record on Sunday night.
New England has now looked like the best team in the League since the return of their starting quarterback behind center. The Patriots have now beaten the Bills, Steelers, Bengals, and Browns since the return of Tom Brady. Not only has the offensive improved but the Patriot's defense has really stepped up this season only allowing 16.5 points per game.
Given that Bill Belichick and Brady had an extra week to prepare for this game it seems as though the Patriots would easily have the advantage in this game right? I personally had the Patriots handicapped as a 4 to 5.5 point favorite against the Seahawks. New England is listed as a hefty 7.5 point favorite and I feel there is tremendous value backing the underdog in this matchup. Look for the Seahawks to get their revenge tonight with a straight up win or keep the game close enough to cover the spread.
* Seattle is 4-1 SU and ATS in its last five games against New England.
Pick: Seattle Seahawks +7.5 (-110)
Best of luck!
