The Patriots are one of the best teams in the league and as always the public loves to bet on Tom Brady and a high-octane offense. The betting public is swarming around this line as they are the most popular bet in week 6. This is the first sign that the Seahawks will pull off an upset.
The Seahawks are flying under the radar but are putting together a very good season. Pete Carroll has his team playing very good defensively and they have one of the best home field advantages in the NFL.
Marshawn Lynch is the best running back in the NFL and is dragging defenders with him on every run. This allows the Seahawks to control the clock and allow rookie quarterback Russell Wilson manage the game and not be forced into passing situations.
The Patriots are one of the best teams in football but they struggle against very physical defense and Seattle is loaded with defenders that play tough, physical football. The Arizona Cardinals beat the Patriots earlier this year with the same formula.
The Seahawks have a front seven that can pressure the quarterback and their corners can cover one-on-one which will allow Seattle to present multiple looks up front to add to the pressure.
The Seahawks have an angle backing them in this game that has proven to be successful this year. Play on a home underdog that won their last game as a road underdog. The theory is that this team is riding a wave of confidence that will carry over to this home game.
The Patriots are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games after allowing less than 90 yards rushing in their previous game and the Seahawks are 4-1 ATS in the last five home games. The Seahawks have all of the ingredients to beat the Patriots and pull off the huge upset.
