How To Bet On Patriots Seahawks – Patriots Come Out On Top On The Road

New England Patriots @ Seattle Seahawks – October 14, 2012 4:05PM EST

The New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks have similar records but are in very different positions within their respective divisions. The NFL betting experts have the New England Patriots on top of the AFC East with a 3-2 record overall and a 3-1 record within the conference. When the Patriots travel to Seattle, it will be only the second time this season that New England has played an NFC team. The last time that New England played an NFC team was a 20-18 loss to the Arizona Cardinals at the Patriots’ home owner. Arizona and Seattle play similar styles, but the results in this game may be different.

The Seattle Seahawks has been living off of its defense as it waits for rookie quarterback Russell Wilson to develop into an NFL starter. In the meantime, the Seahawks’ 3-2 record puts the team at the bottom of the NFC West but not very far from the division lead. The betting sites have noticed that the NFC West has quickly gone from being the worst division in football to the best. In a competitive division, Seattle is holding its own. The development of Wilson is deliberate and slow, and that may cost Seattle a few games before the season ends.

Why the Patriots Will Win

The New England Patriots have the best offense in the NFL and the Seattle Seahawks have the best defense in the NFL. Under normal circumstances, you would give the online sports book edge to the defense. But New England plays a possession style of offense that will keep the Seattle defense backed up and the Seattle offense off the field. With that kind of combination at work, and the New England offense adding points in each quarter, it is going to be difficult for the Seahawks to keep pace in this game.

Why the Seahawks Will Win

If the Seahawks have one secret weapon it is running back Marshawn Lynch. The New England defense has not shown any ability to stop the run this season and Lynch can be a tough running back to bring down. If the Seahawks can get Lynch going early, then that can open up the long passing game to Wilson and his receivers. Seattle does not have a great long passing game, but it could be enough to keep the Patriots off balance.

The Bottom Line

Seattle will put up a good fight in this game, but the Patriots can beat teams with such a precise attack that it can sometimes be difficult to stop. The game will be close, but it should be New England that walks away with the win despite the Seattle defense and the deafening noise from the Seattle crowd.

Pick: New England Patriots
