- Sharp bettors are taking advantage of an ugly forecast at Lincoln Financial Field to find value in today's Seahawks vs. Eagles matchup (1 p.m. ET, FOX).
- Learn how the pros are playing this game.
In what was originally scheduled to be the Week 12 Sunday Night Football matchup, today’s Seahawks vs. Eagles game — now a 1 p.m. ET kickoff — was flexed out in place of Packers vs. 49ers.
However, just because this game was moved out of primetime doesn’t mean it’s still not a great matchup, and the betting ticket counts prove that.
Seahawks vs. Eagles is easily the most heavily-bet matchup of the 1 p.m. ET slate, and at the time of writing trails only Cowboys vs. Patriots in betting handle.
Bettors are overwhelmingly backing the Seahawks on the spread, as 75% of all wagers are taking the points.
And while betting on the over/under seems balanced — 52% have hit the under — sharps are making a late move on the total, and for good reason.
Let’s look at how the Seahawks vs. Eagles over/under is moving and why sharps are all over this side of the total.
