Sunday's historic Seahawks vs. Buccaneers game is the first regular season game to take place in Germany. It's also the fourth game in Europe this season, this being the first away from London, and taking place at Bayern Munich's Allianz Stadium.

This is the hottest ticket in town on Sunday, with over three million people looking for tickets to see the Seahawks, popular in Europe, against the GOAT.

When this game was announced before the season, it was expected to be one-sided, but this Seahawks team has exceeded expectations all season long, while Tom Brady's Buccaneers have failed to meet them.

It won't be Brady starring on Sunday, but somebody else, as our best bet will explain.

The Seahawks have been better than anybody expected this year — far, far better. Key to that has been Geno Smith, with the man drafted by the Jets in 2013 finally delivering on his potential.

Smith has thrown for 2,199 yards, sixth in the NFL, 15 touchdowns, tied for fifth in the league and with a QPR of 68.1, the fourth best in the league.

While many expected down seasons for DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett, they've been impressive despite not having outrageous seasons statistically, scoring four touchdowns each and both exceeding 500 yards.

Seahawks +2.5 | Buccaneers -2.5

The ground game has been a key part of Seattle's identity, as it always is for Pete Carroll, with the team averaging 133.8 rushing yards per game.

With the Bucs at 4-5, it's fair to say that nothing has really gone right this year. Brady has had a mixed season; he's second in the NFL for yardage thrown at 2,547 and has the fewest interceptions with just one, but he's only passed for 10 touchdowns and his QBR of 51.5 puts him in the middle of the pack for starting quarterbacks.

Are time and problems in his private life catching up with TB12? Maybe, but his supporting cast haven't helped.

Mike Evans has racked up 617 yards but just three touchdowns, while Chris Godwin, who has battled through injury all year, is yet to find the end zone.

The biggest issue on the offense, in addition to the play-calling, is Leonard Fournette, who has really struggled this year. The offensive line isn't really helping, but he's averaged just 3.3 yards per carry and frankly looks less dynamic than his backup, Rachaad White.

Betting Picks

When the Seahawks drafted Kenneth Walker III in the second round of this year's draft, they knew they were getting their next great RB. He popped on film for Michigan State and looked like a great fit for a Pete Carroll team. It took an injury to Rashaad Penny to get him the bell cow role, but he hasn't looked back since then.

Walker has now had five straight games with a rushing TD, tied for a Seahawks record. He has huge big-play ability, already having a league-high five rushing TDs of over 10 yards this season. Even more impressive has been how dominant he's been as games have progressed, not getting tired and, if anything, growing stronger. He leads the league in fourth-quarter touchdowns with six, despite starting the season as a backup.

bet365 has the best number on Walker to find the end zone at +120, which I would jump on if you have access to that book. The next-best number is -120 at FanDuel.

Pick: Kenneth Walker Anytime TD Scorer
