Seat­tle over CHICAGO by 3

Playbook Football (Midweek Alert) - - Page 14 1.800.playbook -

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.
