  • 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.

Seahawks vs. Eagles Sharp Report

While a small majority of bettors are playing the under, sharps have slammed this total down from 49 to 46.5, and even to 46 at some sportsbooks.

Why? Well just like today’s Raiders vs. Jets and Cowboys vs. Patriots games, weather is playing a big hand in this line move.

Sports Insights’ Bet Signals triggered a Steam Move on the under shortly after 9 a.m. ET today, identifying that an influx of smart money from respected bettors has driven this total to the current number.

SI’s weather data is calling for steady 14-15 mph breezes throughout the game, while the National Weather service is forecasting wind gusts up to 33 mph and a 70% chance of rain in Philly this afternoon.

And as we know from our Bet Labs software, windy conditions result in lower-than-expected scoring, as unders have gone 477-374-10 (56.1%) in NFL games played in double-digit breezes.
