NFL Football Betting Odds: Philadelphia Eagles vs. Seattle Seahawks

The Philadelphia Eagles vs. Seattle Seahawks NFL game was among the most bet on of the week, only the action tended to be extremely lopsided.  Nearly 90 percent of the betting was going Philadelphia's way as a -7 favorite at Sports Interaction.

In their last meeting, Linebacker Lofa Tatupu intercepted A.J. Feeley at the Seahawks 4-yard line with 23 seconds left to seal Seattle's 28-24 win at Philadelphia in Week 13 last season.

Maurice Morris, who has worked his way back into the Seahawks' running-back rotation, had a team-high 11 attempts (for 16 yards) against the 49ers last week.

Injury concerns for the Seahawks have also prompted heavy betting action going Philadelphia's way.  It should be noted that oddsmakers typically factor such injuries into the equation when making NFL football betting odds.

Seahawks quarterback Matt Hasselbeck has a "dead-leg" feeling and hasn't been cleared to play against that Eagles. That means Seneca Wallace could start his third consecutive game. Look for Eagles defensive coordinator Jim Johnson to put the pressure on the inexperienced quarterback. The Eagles rank second in the NFC with 23 sacks.

The away team in this series has won 6 of the last 9 dating back to 1986.  The away team has won the last 5 dating back to 1998.  The away team has won by more than the current spread 4 of the last 5 games against one another.  Seattle did win the last two in this series, both on the road.

The Eagles are 8-1 ATS in their last 9 road games, 6-2 ATS in their last 8 vs. NFC but only 2-6 ATS in their last 8 road games vs. a team with a losing home record.

The Seahawks are 6-1-1 ATS in their last 8 home games vs. a team with a winning road record but only 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games following a S.U. win.
