Monday Night Football is known for marquee matchups. This Monday is no different.
The Seattle Seahawks will fly across the country for a primetime matchup with the Philadelphia Eagles. This game has playoff implications for both teams in their respective NFC divisions. Read our Seahawks vs. Eagles prediction week 12.
Seattle is strong against the run and weak against the pass. The Eagles run the ball much better than they throw it. Their game plan may need to change on Monday night.
Philadelphia is 3-7 ATS, and I don't think they have it within them to stay within five points of the Seahawks right now. They may lead the NFC East, but they're not good.
The three teams that they've beaten have a combined record of 10-20. Seattle has to compete week in and week out against legitimate competition. This is why the Seahawks by five looks good on Monday night, in my opinion.
Parlay Pick #2: Seattle Team Total Over 27.5 (-120)
Seattle has a stronger offense than the Eagles defense. The Eagles defense will need to shine to keep its team in the game.
Despite this, Wilson has been on a tear this year. When you combine this with DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett as his receivers, the Eagles will have their hands full all night.
Seattle has the eighth-ranked drive success rate in the league. The Seahawks are known for scoring late, but they have the ability to pile it on all night.
If the Seahawks go into the half with well under 28 points, don't be scared. They lead the league in third-quarter scoring and are seventh in fourth-quarter scoring. If Seattle takes time to get going, it makes up for it in the second half.
Despite this, they still have the ability to score early. They have scored seven or more points right away in two of their past three. This offense couldn't be more confident.
They need to make a statement to stay ahead in the NFC West. There isn't a better time than on Monday night for the Seahawks to make a massive statement.
