Seahawks VS Packers Divisional Playoffs Free Betting Pick
The Seattle Seahawks and the Green Bay Packers renew their playoff rivalry in the last game of the Divisional round. Russell Wilson and the Seahawks took advantage of a banged-up Philadelphia Eagles team in the Wild Card game and moved on with a sloppy 17-9 win. The Green Bay Packers won 13 games in the regular season and clinched the #2 seed and a first-round bye in week 17.
The line on this matchup opened at Green Bay favored by 3.5 and was quickly bet up to -4.5. The total opened at 46 and has been bet up to 47. For this free betting pick, we’re making a play on the spread. Seattle has been road warriors this season going 8-1 straight up on the road and a bankroll building 7-1 against the spread. The reason for their road success has been their offense. Seattle has scored 27 points or more on the road in 6 of their 9 road games. To have a chance to win this game or even cover the 4.5 they have to be able to score more than they have lately. They’ve scored 17 or under in 3 of their last 4 road games.
On the other side, Green Bay is well-rested and comes into the game winners of 5 straight. The problem is no one knows how good this Packers team really is because outside of the Vikings and Chiefs they haven’t played anyone good this entire season. With the Packers not afraid of Seattle’s offense, I expect Green Bay to play conservative and rely heavily on the run and play-action passing in this one against a tough Seattle defense in cold weather. With Seattle’s offense struggling to score down the stretch that will play right into Seattle’s hands. Look for a low scoring battle in this one with the game decided on the last possession. The smart play here is to take the points. Our Free Pick: Take Seattle
