Selection by betting analyst Sam Panayotovich:
Is this the Monday night game?!
Russell Wilson returns to Seattle, And that’s literally the only thing that excites me about this game. That said, I’m interested to see how Pete Carroll defends Wilson because no organization knows his tendencies better.
Denver opened -3.5 several months ago, and that line is getting closer to Broncos -7. The Seahawks are starting with two rookies at offensive tackle, which could spell disaster against a stingy Broncos defense. One thing is for sure, all the sportsbooks will be betting on a Seahawks cover by the time the game starts.
If you are looking for fireworks, you are in the wrong place.
