Seattle over CHICAGO by 3
By Pete Carroll’s standards, last week’s loss at Denver was catastrophic. Not only did his defense yield more than 450 yards for only the second time in the last 42 games but they have now dropped 8 of their last nine games overall (including the preseason). It’s time to sound the alert and with it no better quarterback in the league than Russell Wilson to respond as he is 6-1 SU in his career on Mondays, as well as 11-4 SU against the NFC North, including 2-0 SUATS versus the Bears. A lofty 168-2 ATS mark for Wilson as a dog doesn’t hurt, either. Bring Carroll’s chippy 33-13 SU mark in games with the Seahawks when coming off a loss into the fray and you’ve got a hungry team with strong tendencies to satisfy a ravenous appetite. Chicago’s hard-luck loss to Green Bay on Sunday night was likely a precursor to this result given the fact that home favorites coming off a Sunday night division loss in which they beat the spread are just 2-6 ATS since 1997. Chicago’s sh--ty
record as favorites against NFC West foes arriving off a loss seals it. You know what to do.
