Seahawks vs. Saints Spread

Due to the past trends indicating Seattle is a very poor road team, the Seahawks vs. Saints spread was actually in double digits.  The line seems a bit “off” considering the Saints have hardly looked like the reigning Super Bowl champions, even with their 6-3 record, while the Seahawks come into this one a game above .500., like most online sportsbooks, offered a line of New Orleans -11.5.

Just how bad are the Seahawks on the road? Seattle is 3-11 Against The Spread in their last 14 road games.  That said, while New Orleans is 5-0 ATS in their last 5 home games vs. a team with a winning road record, they are also 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games as a favorite of 10.5 or greater.

The Seahawks were getting slightly more action (60/40) on the spread while most of the money line action was coming in on New Orleans (75 percent).  Nearly 95 percent of the total action was on the OVER 44. 

There are a few trends that go against New Orleans in this game.  The Saints are 5-13 ATS in their last 18 vs. NFC, 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games on fieldturf and they are 2-8 ATS in their last 10 games following a Straight Up win.

The Seahawks have performed poorly following a Straight Up win where they are 3-21-2 ATS in their last 26 games following a SU win of more than 14 points.
