Vikings Seahawks Betting Predictions – Vikings, Seahawks Look To Separate Themselves As Contenders

Posted by Tony Bryant on 10/31/2012 5:58:39 PM

The Minnesota Vikings and Seattle Seahawks have yet to separate themselves as contenders in the NFC playoff race through the midway mark of the NFL regular season. A win for either team this week will certainly help them on their way. The Vikings land in Seattle this Sunday for a battle of teams that have exceeded early expectations to keep track with the leaders in their respective divisions as well as in what will be the NFC Wild Card race. These head-to-head contests will be what makes the online sportsbook difference in the standings at the end of the season, something that both teams understand heading in to this game.

The Vikings have followed up a 4-1 start by losing two of their last three, and will look to get back on track with two key games against the Seahawks and Detroit Lions before their bye week. Seattle meanwhile is also at a key point in its schedule, with back-to-back home games against Minnesota and the New York Jets before its bye.

Many predicted that the Vikings would beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Thursday Night Football last week, but a 36-17 loss ended up exposing many of their key weaknesses instead. Minnesota gave up 159 total rushing yards in the loss to Tampa Bay, and its inability to stop the run prevented the offense from getting on the field and doing what it needed to do. It certainly didn’t help that the offense turned the ball over three times in a span of just over 22 minutes of possession, and now the Vikings have to find a way to bounce back in one of the toughest stadiums for opponents to play.

The Seahawks’ defense certainly won’t make it any easier on Christian Ponder and company, especially with the forecast showing rain. Seattle has been one of the toughest home teams in the NFL in recent seasons, especially when running back Marshawn Lynch gets going. Considering what Tampa Bay running back Doug Martin did to the Vikings last week, Lynch has to be excited for his shot at their defense. The Seahawks have won all three of their home games this season, including victories over the Dallas Cowboys, Green Bay Packers, and New England Patriots.

NFL Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

Seattle’s home record alone is enough that Minnesota sports betting fans should be scared of what will happen in this game, never mind that the Vikings were blown away at home by a team with a similar philosophy a week ago. The Seahawks are much more prepared to contend in the NFC this season, and they will get back on track with a big win at home this week to keep in contention.
