The Seahawks were on the wrong end of Week 12’s biggest upset in a 14-5 loss to the Buccaneers as five-point favorites, but bettors shouldn’t expect another lackluster effort in Week 13. The Seahawks will return home to take on the disappointing Carolina Panthers on Sunday night and haven’t dropped consecutive games against the spread since Weeks 1 and 2, while they haven’t been an outright loser at home since last season.
- Russell Wilson has a career 14-3-1 SU record in night games.
- The total has gone OVER in nine of the Panthers’ last 10 games as road underdogs.
- The Seahawks are 7-0 SU and ATS in their last seven games in Week 13.
A lot is made of Seattle’s home-field advantage at CenturyLink Field and rightfully so as they’re averaging 11 more points in home games. That advantage extends to the betting window as well, especially late in the season, as Seattle has posted a 15-5 ATS record in their last 20 home games in December.
It’s been a rough ride for the Panthers outside of Carolina this season as they’re 1-4 SU and 1-3-1 ATS. They’re allowing 10 more points per game on the road and are allowing a league-high 338 passing yards in road games.
The total for the game is hovering around the 44.5 point mark and bettors will be interested to know that Seattle home OVER/UNDER record combined with Carolina’s road O/U record is 7-3. The teams have topped 44.5 points in three straight games against each other.
