Eagles vs Seahawks Prediction

On the spread, I’m taking Philadelphia at -3.5. I’m expecting Philadelphia’s rushing attack to take advantage of a Seattle defense that struggled to defend the run in their most recent game. Lock in Philadelphia -3.5.

If you’re looking for a pick on the over/under, the data we have suggests this game finishing below 47.5 points. For this game, my money is on the under.
