The Seattle Seahawks opened as a -3 favorite against the Green Bay Packers earlier in the week. Heading into game time, the odds were either even or Seattle was at -1.

betED.com was offering a line of +1 ½ for Green Bay late Saturday evening.

The Packers have won 5 of the last 7 in this series since 2003. The home team, however, has won 6 of the last 7.

Both teams seem to be unraveling of late.

Aaron Rodgers had three touchdown passes last week, but the host Packers fell to the Falcons, 27-24. The Seahawks welcomed back receivers Deion Branch and Bobby Engram, but Seattle lost to the host Giants, 44-6.

The Packers have lost three consecutive games for the first time since 2006. ... Green Bay is allowing 25.6 points per game this season (it allowed 18.2 PPG last season). ... The Seahawks are allowing 31 points per game this season. ... The Seahawks were 8-1 at home in 2007 (including the playoffs). They are 1-1 at home this year.


Rodgers, who sprained his shoulder in Week 4's 30-21 loss at Tampa Bay, pleaded with coach Mike McCarthy to let him play last Sunday against Atlanta. He got his wish.

"He was in a lot of pain," McCarthy said. "For him to go out and throw the ball like he did and to play the way he did, I think, is a tribute to him. He definitely played big in the game."

Green Bay's defense allowed 370 yards of total offense last week. The Packers, who were tied with Seattle for sixth in scoring defense last season (18.2 points per game), now rank 23rd in the league in that same category (25.6 ppg) and 26th in total defense (374.0 yards per game).

"We're making common mistakes, things we're stressing in practice, and we need to clean them up," said McCarthy, whose team hasn't dropped four straight games since opening the 2005 season 0-4. "Our house is messy right now. Nobody's happy about it and we'll continue to work. But we're 2-3 and we'll get it cleaned up as we head into Seattle."

All in all, this is a tough game to call considering the amount of injuries and relying on two teams that have not been living up to their potential of late.

Pass on this one, Gambling911.com advises.
