Giants vs. Seahawks


SBG Global was among the few online sportsbooks still offering the Giants vs. Seahawks spread at -7.  Considering that most of those betting the game spread here were on New York (85 percent of the volume), this was a good number.  The majority of books had moved up to -7.5 during Sunday morning.

Nearly 70 percent of those betting the money line were backing the Giants even with the line at -330 (New York must win outright).  Seattle would pay $27 with an outright win.  The 40.5 total was getting even action.

Gambling911.com notes that there are some very solid trends involving this game, so please read on.

Charlie Whitehurst will make his first start as quarterback for the Seahawks due to a Matt Hasselbeck concussion.

The circumstances are good," said Whitehurst, who has played three career games and never thrown a pass. "We're playing a good team. Playing at home. It's all you can really ask for. I plan on going out there and executing and helping this team win."

The Seahawks also lose Red Bryant, who had been anchoring the team's improved play against the run.

The good news for Seattle is that they will be playing at home.  The Seahawks are 4-0 Against The Spread in their last 4 home games and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games as a home underdog.

Seattle has also been good at coming back from previous losses.   They are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games following a S.U. loss.  The Giants, meanwhile, are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games following an ATS win.  This gives Seattle a bit of a betting edgeGambling911.com should caution, however, that New York is 21-9 ATS in their last 30 games following a S.U. win.

Also, the Seahawks have shown they can play well against teams with winning records.  They are 8-2-2 ATS in their last 12 home games vs. a team with a winning road record.

The Giants, meanwhile, come into this game with a 5-2 record and have won 4 straight. 

Prior to their bye week, the Giants defeated Dallas 41-35 by limiting the Cowboys to 254 yards.  They also left Cowboys starting quarterback Tony Romo out with a broken collarbone.  Romo is likely to be out the remainder of this season.

New York’s record following a bye week is not very impressive.  They are 6-15 following the bye.  During the last three seasons they have lost two of their three games ATS following a bye week, which does tend to give Seattle a bit of a betting edge.

The Giants are 12-4 ATS in their last 16 games as a road favorite.

There are some significant trends involving the UNDER 40.5.

As a road favorite of 3.5 to 7 points, the OVER is 0-11 for the Giants.  Likewise, for the Seahawks, in a home game where the total is between 38.5 and 42 points, the OVER is just 1-6.

Don Best has advised us that, the betting public is correct when moving the total in SEATTLE games 68.8% of the time over the past 3 seasons. (22-10), which gives the UNDER a tremendous edge.
