This line had the Seahawks as 6.5-point favorites but they now sit at -7.5 with the total down half a point since the open at 46.5.
It looks as though 7.5 points will be enough to keep Green Bay supporters interested. About 61 percent of Sports Interaction’s bets are coming in on the Packers, but when it comes to the moneyline it’s a completely different story. About 67 percent of outright bettors like the Seahawks to win the game.
Sure, the Seahawks looked great last weekend, but let’s mistake Carolina’s quality to that of Green Bay’s. The Packers are a much better team even if Aaron Rodgers is still limping around with that wonky leg. While Green Bay may have been handed a gift from the officiating crew (or rulebook) last week, this team deserves to be here. If nothing else, the Packers keep this one close. If Rogers were completely healthy, this would be a moneyline play on the underdog.
Pick: Seattle Seahawks 27, Green Bay Packers 24.
The Patriots opened as 7-point favorites and currently sit at -6.5. The total is holding at 54.
You have to wonder what it’s going to take for the Colts to get some serious respect. Bettors are basically split on this matchup with 51 percent of bets coming in on Indianapolis. Isn’t this the same Colts team that just spanked the Broncos in Denver?
This line looks at least a couple of points high. Brady and the Pats slipped by the Ravens last week but they won’t have a prayer against the Colts if they run the ball for just 13 yards again. If you’re just tuning into the NFL now, Andrew Luck is the real deal, folks. He’ll give the Pats everything they can handle and Dan “Boom” Herron is keeping defenses honest with his work on the ground. With a couple of turnovers and good clock management, the Colts can steal this game.
Pick: Indianapolis Colts 31, New England Patriots 27.
