Seahawks vs Lions
My lean is here on Seattle Seahawks from several reasons. They clearly finished the regular season in better shape than Detroit Lions. Furthermore, the home field advantage could be crucial since Lions never won playoff game on the road. But, the last season playoff does not speak in favor of home advantage cause in all four games of this stage, the road teams have won back then. My biggest concern about betting on Seahawks is this pretty big spread. -8 pts to cover in playoff game, it is not easy task at all no matter Lions have been more or less easily outplayed in three final regular season games, in all three from playoff teams. So, Seahawks -8 will remain only the lean while I have much stronger opinion when it comes to totals for this game. It's Over in question. Though, the initial line moved a little bit up, so now we need to go with 43.5 but for me this is still favorably if you are considering betting on over the totals.
What I like the most about Over bet is fact the Lions are ranked among the league worst if we are talking about defense. On the other side their Quarterback Matthew Stafford can create the good plays so I hope to see lot of points on both sides. Stafford is dealing with small problem (finger) but it is not something new so I think it wont affect his game today.
