The Seahawks were offered as 1.5-point favorites on look-ahead lines last week. They reopened -2.5 in Las Vegas on Sunday night and have been bet up to -3 on most oddsboards, with Caesars adding -120 juice on the chalk side.

The weather forecast as of Thursday calls for about a 64-68% chance of rain during the game.

Longshots in the Mix

The Seahawks and Giants are two of the biggest surprises in the league this year, both entering the season as 150-to-1 longshots to win the Super Bowl and now solidly in the playoff hunt.

The Giants at 6-1 (4-3 against the spread), on a four-game winning streak and with the second-best record in the NFL, already are one victory shy of matching their season win total. Seattle (4-3 SU/ATS), which is in first in the NFC West, had a number of 5.5 in win total wagering ahead of the season. Only Houston had a smaller total.

Seahawks Offense is Firing

The Seahawks have had great success on the ground and through the air in 2022, despite the shakeup at quarterback and the loss of their top rusher.

QB Geno Smith leads the league in completion percentage at 73.8 and is the third-ranked passer since taking over for departed Russell Wilson, who was sent to Denver in a blockbuster offseason deal.

As for the rushing game, the Seahawks average 5.5 yards a carry, best in the league, despite losing top rusher Rashaad Penny to an ankle/fibula injury in New Orleans three weeks ago. Rookie Kenneth Walker III, a second-round pick out of Michigan State, has done even better, with 168 yards and two TDs in last week’s 37-23 rout of the Chargers in LA.

For the first time in two years, the Seahawks showed off some big-time ball control last week with a 17-play, 77-yard march to a FG. It was the first time since 2020 Seattle had a drive of 15 or more plays.

On the downside, though, is that receiver DK Metcalf is dealing with a knee injury.

Barkley Leads the Way, Danny Dropping Dimes

As for the Giants, the last time they had a four-game win streak was two seasons ago, capped by a 17-12 win at Seattle as an 11-point underdog. That was their biggest upset victory the past five seasons.

New York RB Saquon Barkley, the league’s second-leading rusher at 726 yards, has been the offense’s headliner for a unit that’s had injuries issues at receiver and ranks 30th in passing yards a game.

Still, QB Daniel Jones is coming off a game in Jacksonville, a 23-17 victory, in which he earned NFC Offensive Player of the Week honors. He passed for 202 yards and a score and rushed for 107 yards and another TD, which was the first time a NYG quarterback reached both yardage plateaus in the same game. Along with Barkley’s 110 rushing yards, it marked the second time in the league this year teammates hit the century mark in the same game.

Giants vs. Seahawks Analysis and Prediction

Seattle’s speed on offense, which includes leading receiver Tyler Lockett, plus the 12th Man in the stands could cause headaches for a Giants team that prevailed after rallying from a hole of 10 points or more in its past three games. No other squad has that many such comebacks.

Something else that jumps out is that Seattle averages a league-best 5.5 yards a rush. The Giants’ defense yields 5.7 a carry, worst in the NFL. That’s not conducive to another NYG comeback, since last week Seattle showed it can grind out a long drive to eat the clock.

Then there’s the issue the Giants have along the offensive line. Right tackle Evan Neal, a first-round choice from Alabama, is “week to week” with a knee injury he suffered last week. Ditto for LG Ben Bredeson.

Forecast: Seahawks 30, Giants 17
