Jaguars vs Seahawks Odds - Hapless Seahawks to falter against streaking Jaguars

football linesThe story of the Jaguars vs Seahawks odds will be whether Seahawks quarterback Matt Hasselbeck is healthy enough to play or not. Online betting fans know that the Seahawks don’t have much of a chance to win without Hasselbeck - even at home - and if he doesn’t play, the Jaguars are the better bet in this contest.



Jaguars vs Seahawks odds: NO LINE

  • WHAT: NFL betting
  • WHEN: Sunday, October 11th – 4:15 PM ET

  • KEY STAT: 0-3 ATS in last three as a home underdog of three points or less
  • PICK: Jaguars



Jaguars vs Seahawks odds maker breakdown: The Storyline
The Jaguars have righted the ship after starting the year 0-2. With division wins in back-to-back weeks, they now head on the road to Seattle, which is normally a tough place to play. With a third straight win, NFL betting fans will have to take coach Jack Del Rio off the hot seat. And with the Jags passing game working well, they will likely get the win. Their next four games are against teams that are a combined 1-15.

For the Seahawks, all the positives from their opening 28-0 win over St. Louis have since dissipated. Since the Seahawks lost quarterback Matt Hasselbeck, the team has been horrible in the last few weeks. They don’t play with the same amount of confidence when he’s out.

Betting Edge: Even


Jaguars vs Seahawks odds maker breakdown: Offense
The Jaguars offense has found its rhythm in recent weeks as wideout Mike Sims-Walker has emerged as a good target for David Garrard. With Torry Holt on the other side and Maurice Jones-Drew in the backfield, the Jaguars have been functioning as a competent offense.

Seattle’s offense has soured without Hasselbeck and there’s no reason it will turn it around this week if he’s out. Seneca Wallace has been effective moving the chains, but he has struggled in downfield passes and making critical throws. The running game is nonexistent and there isn’t much balance for this team right now. The tune changes if Hasselbeck plays.

Betting Edge: Jacksonville


Jaguars vs Seahawks odds maker breakdown: Defense
The Jaguars defense has picked up the pace in the last two weeks, particularly last week when they stifled the Tennessee Titans. On the year, they have allowed 21.5 points per game, but given their upcoming stretch, their defense should be able to dominate the weaker opponents they’ll be facing.

For Seattle, their solid defense is getting lost in the shuffle. Because of poor offensive play, they are being thrown onto the field in bad situations and are forced to play much more than they would like. Until the offense lends some support, there is no reason to trust this unit.

Betting Edge: Jaguars


Jaguars vs Seahawks odds maker breakdown: Notable Injuries
The Jaguars are completely healthy while the Seahawks have key injuries all over the place. Obviously, sportsbook odds makers have left the game off the board because of the questionable status of Hasselbeck. Beyond that, end Patrick Kerney (groin) is not likely to play and overall, the team will be missing about six starters for Sunday (Walter Jones, Sean Locklear, Rob Sims, Leroy Hill, Marcus Trufant and the aforementioned Kerney).

Betting Edge: Jacksonville


Jaguars vs Seahawks odds for total: NO LINE
Without a gauge on Hasselbeck’s status, stay away from this total.

Pick: None


Jaguars vs Seahawks betting breakdown: Outlook and Pick
The Jaguars have to be the play here - maybe even if Hasselbeck is starting. The Jags are hot right now, but more importantly, they are healthy. Look for them to take advantage of a beat-up Seahawks squad and get the outright win.
