The Russell Wilson-less Seahawks have dropped three straight games to fall to the bottom of the NFC West standings, and are only modest home favourites against a Jaguars team coming off a bye week following its first win of the season in Week 6 vs. Miami.

The Seahawks are 3-point favourites to win on the NFL odds, with a total of 43.5.

NFL Point Spread and Betting Analysis

Seattle being favoured by only three points against the Jaguars tells you everything you need to know about the current state of the Seahawks – but the betting public hasn’t lost faith. Nearly three-quarters of Sports Interaction respondents are taking the home team in what could be a great value play if the Seahawks can get their act together. The Jaguars have lost 20 of their past 21 games overall, and are just 3-7 ATS in their last 10.

The total of 43.5 has generated a near-split in betting handle, with 51 per cent shading toward the Under. Both teams are trending heavily in that direction, with the Jaguars at 2-4 O/U for the season and Seattle at 1-5-1 O/U on the year. The Jags are also 3-8-1 to the Under in their last 12 games as a road underdog of five or fewer points, while the Seahawks are 2-4 O/U in their past six as a home fave of 3+ points (though they’ve gone Over in their last two).

It took a return trip to London for the Jaguars to end an eye-popping 20-game losing skid – and Urban Meyer is in for a major challenge this week against what many believe is the loudest stadium in football. Meyer told reporters that former Seattle assistants Darrell Bevell and Brian Schottenheimer filled him in on what to expect: “They said it’s the loudest outdoor stadium we’ll play in. They said the thing is built (for crowd noise) and plus the fans are outstanding.”

Seattle Seahawks

All the crowd noise in the world isn’t going to help the Seahawks if they can’t first figure out how to help themselves. And despite calls for a change at quarterback, head coach Pete Carroll says he’s sticking with Geno Smith in place of the injured Wilson. “He’s managing the game well,” Carroll told reporters, though he did admit in the same breath that he would like to see Smith be more willing to throw the ball away when he’s under duress.
