Free NFL Week 13 Expert Picks: Eagles vs Seahawks Prediction
Philadelphia Eagles -5.5 at Seattle Seahawks +5.5 Total: 47
For me, this is going to be the Week 13 game that I am most interested in betting and watching. The Eagles and their 10-1 record will face Seattle at CenturyLink Field in one of their most stringent tests of the season. Philly as favorites in this spot is something I never that was possible at the beginning of the year. All odds from this article are from SportsBetting.ag.
The Eagles – Fly Eagles Fly
At this point, Philadelphia doesn’t need to prove anything. They’re easily the favorite in the NFC to make it to the Super Bowl, and they have the best record in all of the NFL at 10-1. Double-digit victories are commonplace for the Eagles. The franchise has won by double digits in all of their last five games, including last week’s defeat of the visiting Bears by a score of 31-3.
Philadelphia is mostly healthy coming into this game. Alshon Jeffery was limited this week in practice with a foot injury, but he is no longer on the injury report and will play this week.
The Seahawks – Legion of Boom No More?
Seattle won a Super Bowl with their defense a few years back, but it’s the offense, more specifically, Russell Wilson, who has gotten things done for them this season. The Seahawks took care of business at San Francisco last week, winning 24-13, and improving their record to 7-4. Still, they’re a game behind the Rams in the division but have a healthy playoff outlook.
Already missing several key defensive stars, like Richard Sherman and Kam Chancellor, Earl Thomas is also questionable this week. However, Seattle will return linebacker, Bobby Wagner. He’s a key run stopper for Seattle.
Betting Action – Odds On The Eagles
The Eagles opened at -3, but that quickly shot up to -5 and is now at -5.5 at most sportsbooks. The public is loving them so far, with over 60 percent of tickets coming on Philadelphia. The total has seen a drop since opening at 48 points to 47.
Philadelphia Eagles vs Seattle Seahawks Prediction
It’s been very difficult betting against the Eagles this season. Every team you expect to come back down to earth, at some point, especially one that has a rookie quarterback and a defense that was poor last year. Yet, Philly doesn’t stop winning games.
In this spot, I must plant my flag with Seattle. Yes, their defense is banged up, and the Eagles have been unstoppable, but they are still a 7-4 team getting 5.5 points in a fantastic home field environment. They also scheme pass heavy since they have no running game. That’s the one area where the Eagles are vulnerable.
I’m betting on Russell Wilson at home.
