Monday Night Football Point Spread and Betting Analysis

Both Seattle and Washington were division champions last season, albeit the WFT with a 7-9 record in the terrible NFC East, but it’s not likely that either makes the playoffs this year.

The Seahawks have never finished with a losing record (missed the playoffs just once) since drafting Russell Wilson in 2012 but they are going to this year and probably finish last in the NFC West. I’d expect plenty of change in the Pacific Northwest in the off-season, including a trade of Wilson as he’ll force his way out and perhaps Coach Pete Carroll retiring. The WFT might have a shot at a wild-card spot if it wins this game. Don’t rule out it being the team that acquires Wilson this winter.

Including playoffs, Washington is 12-9 all-time vs. Seattle. The past six meetings all have been decided by 10 or fewer points. They played last year in Maryland and the Seahawks won 20-15. Dwayne Haskins was the WFT quarterback then and was picked off twice. Wilson had a TD pass and an interception.

The road team is 4-1-1 against the spread in the past six meetings.

Seattle Seahawks

Seattle is 0-2 since Russell Wilson returned from a finger injury and has been mostly inept offensively as Wilson hasn’t looked right. The Seahawks were 23-13 home losers Sunday to Arizona, which was without QB and MVP candidate Kyler Murray and All-Pro receiver DeAndre Hopkins. Wilson has totaled 368 yards passing in his two games since the return with zero TDs and two picks. He was 0-for-6 on third and fourth downs Sunday and had previously never finished worse than 0-for-4 on third or fourth down. Perhaps Wilson rushed back? It’s the first time since 2011 and only the second time in Pete Carroll’s tenure that the Hawks have been four games under .500. To make matters worse, rookie starting cornerback Tre Brown suffered a likely season-ending injury Sunday. Seattle is 3-8 ATS in its past 11 road games.

Washington Football Team

Washington has a flicker of playoff hopes thanks to back-to-back upset wins. In the two victories, Washington has averaged 37 minutes, 30 seconds in time of possession. It prevailed 27-21 at Carolina on Sunday as Taylor Heinicke Seahawks vs. Washington Point Spread: NFL Week 12 Odds, Prediction threw three TD passes and didn’t turn the ball over despite being without his No. 2 wideout (Curtis Samuel) and both top tight ends. Washington also rushed for 190 yards and the defence played pretty well in its first game since losing 2020 Defensive Rookie of the Year Chase Young to a season-ending injury. The defence has held the past two opponents to a combined 31.6 per cent success rate on third down. The WFT is 6-2 ATS in its past eight after a win.
