I know everyone will be watching this exciting matchup between the Seattle Seahawks and Cleveland Browns so let’s make a pick for this game. The Seahawks will be rested and ready for this game coming off a bye week and will be feeling good about their game after that big win for them over the Giants two weeks ago. People don’t know much about the Seahawks but one of their strong points this sesaon has been their run defence. The Seahawks are allowing just 3.1 yards per carry (1st in the NFL) and 97.8 yards per game on the ground (8th in the NFL). With the Browns RB Peyton Hillis banged up (hamstring) and questionable for this weeks game the Browns are going to have an even more difficult time running the ball. So how is Cleveland’s passing game? Surprisingly the Browns have been throwing the ball a lot this season. The Browns average 43.4 pass attempts per game, second only to the Saints. However, the Browns average only 228.8 passing yards per game which is 18th best in the NFL. As you can see this is not a good combination (so many throws with so little yards). Who is going to come out on top in this matchup of elite teams?
I like the Seahawks in this game. It is just a good matchup for them. They are rested coming off a bye week, they have the momentum coming off a big win over the Giants, and they face a Browns team with a banged up Peyton Hillis who missed practice again on Friday and might not even play (not that it matters if he does). Currently the Browns are a -3 favorite at Bodog Sportsbook. I’ll take the Seahawks and the +3 points (although we shouldn’t need them) in this game. It is not advisable to watch this game, but I do advise betting it – the Seahwaks +3 (1.83).
