Seahawks-Bears Line Settles in at -10 Across the Board

Seahawks-Bears Line

The Seahawks-Bears line appears to be staying at -10 in favor of Chicago after opening at -9 earlier in the week.  Amazingly, around 60 percent of the spread action was going the way of Seattle. 

Despite having beaten the reigning Super Bowl champion New Orleans Saints in the Wildcard Playoffs last week, Seattle’s record remains at 8-9 (under .500).  On a bright note, the team has won its last two games and may be coming into its own at just the right time (remember the Arizona Cardinals just a few years ago). 

Money line action was split between the two teams, an indication that half the gambling public believes the Seahawks can win this one outright.  Betting the money line would pay $35 for every $10 bet should Seattle beat Chicago early Sunday

There is an interesting trend statisticians gotta love:  Chicago has followed a Loss, Loss, Win pattern of late that suggests they are due to lose at home.

These teams had a similar makeup when the Bears beat Seattle in their last home game of the 2006 Divisional Round. 

We would note that the Seahawks have been abysmal on the road this season, including Against The Spread.  They are 2-8 ATS in their last 10 games as a road underdog of 3.5-10.0, 3-12 ATS in their last 15 road games vs. a team with a winning home record., and here’s a telling stat – the Seahawks are 2-10 ATS in their last 12 games on grass.

Following Notre Dame's big win over Wisconsin, we will see the Badgers team rating take a nose dive.  Michigan beat Rutgers by a touchdown and this should boost their rating further.  Remarkably, had Wisconsin not have lost so badly to the Fighting Irish Saturday, Michigan would only be a -1 favorite coming into the Week 5 game.  We are anticipating the Badgers to fall to around 30th for a rating of 77 while Michigan rises a bit to overtake Clemson's 87.51 prior to their loss to NC State.
