Patriots vs Seahawks pick against the spread and predictions
Quarterback Cam Newton excelled in his debut for the Patriots, claiming victory over the Dolphins. It is clear that the coaching staff has implemented an offense that is fitting for a mobile signal-caller. The Seahawks dominated in Atlanta and returns home to continue their winning ways. When making the NFL week 2 picks against the spread, this is a game that is high on the list. This game will attract plenty of eyes and betting attention as the stand-alone game on Sunday night football.

Public supporting Seattle
After the dominating win against Atlanta, the public believes in this team. Seattle finally decided to let Russell Wilson do his thing and the results were awesome to watch. (unless you bet on the Falcons) The sports betting public believes that will carry over to this week as 62 percent of the wagers are on the home team. This caused a point-spread move from Seattle (-3) to (-4) according to the top sports betting sites. This may be a bit of overreaction to the home field. The Seahawks fan base will not provide the usual support and Seattle is 2-7 against the spread (ATS) in the last nine home games.
Both the Seahawks and the Patriots have excellent coaching staffs. However, it is very hard for Pete Carroll to get any respect, especially after what happened when the teams met in the Super Bowl.
The Seahawks were scorched for the play call to pass in that situation and not run the ball. You can bet that they will not do that again. No really, you can actually bet on it.
Patriots vs Seahawks Special bet
Will the Seahawks throw a pass from the 1-yard line against the Patriots?
This is a fun bet to make on a nationally televised game, but it’s time for the breakdown of what can easily be the best game of the day.
No passing zone
The Patriots are a different team with Cam Newton under center. It was very clear in the first week that Josh McDaniel is catering the offense to a rushing quarterback. Newton led an offense that is currently the tops in the league in running the rock. The Patriots have the most rushing attempts, yards, and touchdowns. This includes five players that had four or more rushing attempts. New England is running and running well. Seattle will have to adjust to this new style of football.
Patriots vs Seahawks pick against the spread
What is the best way to beat Seattle? The best way is to stop Russell Wilson, but that’s impossible. So the next best way is to keep him off the field and that is exactly what this Patriots offense does. The Seattle defense is beatable and they allowed the Falcons to put up over 500 yards a week ago. This number would have been more of a problem if Seattle lost. The Patriots are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 road games and 34-15-3 ATS in their last 52 games as an underdog. Bill Belichick will have the right scheme to keep Wilson off the field and win this game.
