Week 9 Eagles vs. Seahawks NFL Predictions

NFL Football Sports Betting – Philadelphia Eagles at Seattle Seahawks

The Seattle Seahawks (2-5 SU, 3-4 ATS), who have won four straight division titles, got a win last night that they hope will point them in the right direction. On Sunday they will try to keep that going at home against the Philadelphia Eagles (4-3 SU, 5-2 ATS) in NFL football sports betting action that will begin at 4:15 PM ET at Qwest Field (artificial turf) in Seattle.

Sunday, November 2
BetUS NFL Betting Odds: PHILADELPHIA -6.5, Total 43

NOTABLE STAT: Seahawks have averaged just five yards per passing attempt

KEY NFL BETTING TREND: Eagles are 8-1 ATS in their last nine on road

In the BetUS NFL football betting odds, the Eagles are listed as a 6.5-point favorite, with a posted total of 43 points.

Here are some NFL football sports betting trends as they relate to this matchup:

* PHIL has covered five of its last seven games
* PHIL has won seven of its last ten games SU
* PHIL has covered eight of its last nine road games
* PHIL has won six of its last nine road games SU
* PHIL has played seven of its last eight road games OVER the total
* SEA has lost six of its last eight games SU
* SEA has played eight of its last ten games OVER the total
* SEA has won and covered seven of its last nine home games
* SEA has played five of its last seven home games OVER the total

Also…

* SEA has covered five of the last seven meetings
* SEA has won four of the last six meetings SU
* PHIL has won four of the last six meetings SU as the road team

When you look at this game, it kind of depends on whether you consider Seattle’s 34-13 win over San Francisco last week as a “buy” signal. I’m not sure I do. Remember, this was a Niner team that was experiencing some meltdown in Mike Singletary’s debut, which prompted the inflammatory comments every NFL follower has already seen. And San Francisco was changing signal-callers in the middle of the contest, going from mistake-prone J.T. O’Sullivan to Shawn Hill. Sure, Seneca Wallace threw for 22 yards and two TD’s, but he was under 50% accurate going into that game. And Seattle’s running game disappeared. Running back Leonard Weaver was the receiving star, catching four passes for 116 yards. Can he do that again? We certainly don’t know.

What we know about the Eagles is that they bring a big edge at the quarterback position into this one with Donovan McNabb at the controls (even though we consider him a tad overrated). We also know that Bryan Westbrook is back in form, having exploded for 167 rushing yards and two TD’s last week. We also know that under Andy Reed, the Eagles have always seemingly played better on the road than they have at home, and indeed have covered eight of their last nine games away from the City of Brotherly Love.

Seattle has often managed to extract a home field advantage; they are 7-2 ATS in their last nine at Qwest Field. And the number is tempting, for sure. But I can see Wallace, who has thrown just 72 passes between this year and last, as one quarterback who could be confused and rattled by Philadelphia’s complex complex scheme of blitzes, engineered by defensive coordinator Jim Johnson. And Julius Jones looks like he’s going back to being a non-factor, with 44, 42 and nine rushing yards in the last three games.

This is not a big recommendation, but we like both fundamentals and technical numbers in this one, as we take the Eagles and lay 6.5 points in the BetUS NFL football sports betting odds.

Our PLAY: PHILADELPHIA -6.5 *
