This Monday night the Green Bay Packers travel out West to take on the Seattle Seahawks. Most football gambling fans will say that the Packers are going to have no problem disposing of the Seahawks. However, football gambling fans should not dismiss the fact that CenturyLink Field is one of the toughest venues in the league to play in for opposing teams.
The Seahawks have 17-8 record on Monday Night Football, which surprisingly is the best winning percentage of any team in the NFL. In addition the Seahawks are 4-0-1 against the spread in their last 5 Monday night games. They are also 8-3 in their last 11 home games, so the trends are clearly pointing in the Seahawks favor. Whereas, the Packers are 1-5 against the spread in their last 6 games following an against the spread win.
The current line on the game has the Packers as the favorite at -3. This small spread is causing a lot of football gambling fans to jump all over the Packers, because most of the time the Packers are usually at least a -7 point favorite. Also the Seahawks are not a high profile team around the NFL, so most football gambling fans wager against them. I would suggest to football gambling fans to stray away from the herd, and wager on the Seahawks getting +3 points for the game. For those football gambling fans who are a looking for a little more risk versus reward, I would suggest picking the Hawks on the money line at +160.
The other option for football gambling fans is to wager on the over of 44 1/2 in the game. In the last 4 games between these two teams the over is 3-0-1, so it would be wise to follow the trend on this wager.
