Oddsfanatic’s Pick: Take the Giants +3
If the NFL week 7 Monday night matchup between the New Orleans Saints and Seattle Seahawks is even half as exciting as last week’s game between Buffalo and Tennessee, we will be ecstatic fans. Last Monday, we had one of the better games of the year, and we completely support the decision to go for it on fourth-and-inches rather than kicking a field goal to tie the game. You’re out to win the game, not to lose. If you run the same play another nine times, Allen will get that half yard every time. In terms of the contest this week, while there may be no drama or narrative leading up to it, we expect one team will emerge and dominate for 60 minutes.
The Saints are 4.5-point favorites with the total set at 42.5 as of this writing, according to bookmakers‘ latest lines. The Saints were -3.5 going into this game, but have been bet up in a hurry. The line movement is due to the fact that we have a rested Saints squad heading to Seattle to face off against a Seahawks team that suffered an overtime loss in their Week 6 defeat at Pittsburgh. Remember, the Seahawks will be starting Geno Smith for the second time this season without Russell Wilson.
The Saints enter this game with a full week off and should be in good shape to play a complete 60 minutes of excellent football. New Orleans ran into their bye week with a crucial victory over the Washington Football team to improve their record to 3-2. They are facing another favorable matchup as they travel to Seattle to face a Seahawks squad that is starting their alternate quarterback. Consider how vital this game is before looking ahead to next week’s meeting with the Buccaneers if you believe the Saints are looking forward to it.
The Saints realize that going into the game at 4-2 is a lot more desirable than 3-3 or a potential 3-4 when they lose to the Buccaneers. We believe in the New Orleans Saints’ defensive performance thus far this season, and we expect their defense to be the driving force behind their victory here tonight. The attack, which is ninth in rushing yards and ninth in points, is 30th in passing yards and 31st in total yards. The Seahawks defense isn’t intimidating at all, so oddsfanatic anticipates the passing game to get going and for the Saints to have a big night on offense while considering NFL picks week 7.
The experts advised the Seahawks to free Wilson and allow him to operate the show, much like Aaron Rodgers does for the Packers’ offense. Unfortunately, it doesn’t happen as much as everyone would like because Pete Carroll is in charge, and because the Seahawks offensive line is so bad. The kitchen, after all, is now officially closed, as Russ is away for an extended amount of time.
Geno Smith isn’t good enough to keep the Seahawks competitive until Wilson returns. With their current NFL season’s schedule, I can see one more possible triumph (over Jacksonville) before their meeting with the Texans in Week 14. By then, the Seahawks will be out of the playoff picture, and once again, discussions about Wilson’s future with the team will start.
