Sean Koerner’s Projected Saints-Seahawks Odds
- Projected Spread: Seahawks -4.5
- Projected Total: 45.5
The Saints have a very capable backup in Teddy Bridgewater, who should be able to manage games enough that they should be able to rely on their strong running game and defense to keep them in games. But without Drew Brees, they go from Super Bowl contender to a league-average team.
This line opened a bit too high with the Seahawks as 6-point favorites, but the market has since corrected closer to my projected line. I think the public is clearly on the Seahawks while the sharps appear to be on the Saints.
The Seahawks are 2-0 with a point differential of only +3! (They beat the Bengals by one and Steelers by two.) Having that type of “luck” in close games is how teams can quickly be overrated by the public.
I still think this number is pretty good, but if the Seahawks start 3-0, they could be a good team to fade in Week 4 at Arizona. — Sean Koerner
Chris Raybon: Seahawks Moneyline (-215)
The Saints got some some sharp action at +4.5, and maybe they can keep it close, but again, Bridgewater is 8-9 in his career on the road while Wilson is 45-12 at home.
Wilson is also the much more efficient passer of the two quarterbacks, so I would be highly surprised if the Saints pull off the upset — which might explain why there is more money than bets on Seattle moneyline while the opposite is true about the spread (according to our live public betting data as of writing).
