Seahawks can use home advantage to sneak past Packers

Week 11 of the NFL season begins with bang, as two teams whose play-off hopes hang by a thread meet at CenturyLink Field in Seattle.

The Seahawks and the Packers will both feel they can take a wildcard spot this season, but Thursday night’s clash may prove pivotal for both teams.


Seattle Seahawks v Green Bay Packers (Nov 16 – 1:20am)

Seattle head into the Week 11 clash with a 4-5 record, having lost their last two games against Los Angeles duo, the Rams and Chargers.

The Seahawks’ (1.64 Winner Full Time) recent form is clouded slightly by a tough fixture list, which has seen them play the high-flying Rams twice in five weeks.

With some more favourable fixtures to come in the next few weeks, Pete Carroll’s men will see this as a crucial game. The head-to-head stats favour the Seahawks as well, with a 3-0 home record against the Packers since 2012.

The Packers (2.35) are yet to win on the road this term and that will be a major concern for coach Mike McCarthy, with his men currently sat third the NFC North with a 4-4-1 record.

The running game is likely to be the key factor in this match-up, with Rashaad Penny and Aaron Jones going head-to-head. Penny (2.60 Anytime Touchdown Scorer) ran for over 100 yards last week and will get the nod as the starting running-back ahead of Mike Davis, if Chris Carson (hip) is missing once more.

New Orleans Saints v Philadelphia Eagles (Nov 17 – 21:25pm)

Not many would have predicted back in August that the defending champions Philadelphia would be third in the NFC East, going in to Week 11, with a 4-5 record.

But it’s been a case of after the Lord Mayor’s show for Doug Pederson’s team, with the Eagles heading to New Orleans having won just one of their last three games.

In stark contrast, the Saints (1.95 -8 Spread FT) hold the second best record in the NFC (8-1) and racked up 51 points in a thumping off the Cincinnati Bengals last week.

At the age of 39, this may be Drew Brees’ last chance of collecting a second Super Bowl ring (New Orleans 5.00 Outright) and with the Saints scoring 40 or more points in three of their four matches at the Superdome, it could be a long day for the Eagles.


Atlanta Falcons v Dallas Cowboys (Nov 17 – 18:00pm)

Two teams with identical records meet at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium on Sunday, with the value bet looking like a victory for the Cowboys (Winner Full Time – Atlanta 1.57, Dallas 2.55).

Two fourth-quarter touchdowns helped Dallas to gutsy 20-27 win in Philadelphia last week and they will head to Atlanta full of confidence.

Ezekiel Elliott rushed for 151 yards last week and the 2.55 on offer for the Cowboys to beat an Atlanta team that lost to the Browns in Week 10, looks a tempting price.


Detroit Lions v Carolina Panthers (Nov 17 – 18:00pm)

Another team on the road that look a solid bet to claim a victory on Sunday are the Carolina Panthers (1.97 -4 Spread FT).

The Panthers were mauled at Pittsburgh last week, but prior to that they had recorded three straight wins, including a victory on the road in Philadelphia.

The Lions have lost their last three and are struggling on both sides of the ball, the offense scoring just 45 points in that three-match run – culminating in a 34-22 defeat to the Chicago Bears in Week 10.
