Betting market: The Seahawks are getting the majority of bets at the time of writing (see live data here), but the line has actually moved against them pretty significantly.

Chicago opened as 3-point favorites, moved to 3.5 pretty quickly and held firm there throughout the week until a Sunday afternoon Steam Move boosted this number up to 4.5/5 across the market.

If the bigger-money wagers continue to back the Bears, don’t be surprised if the spread stays on the move, as it’s currently lingering in a dead zone between key numbers. Scott T. Miller

Trend to know: The Seahawks are on the second leg of back-to-back games as road underdogs. Teams in this spot that lost the first game are 190-135-5 (58.5%) against the spread the following week since 2003. — Danny Donahue

Prime time birds: The combination of Pete Carroll and Russell Wilson should make any opponent sweat, especially when you have to play this duo at night in prime time (including playoffs and Super Bowl).

Wilson has made 29 career prime time starts and he is 23-5-1 straight-up and 21-6-2 ATS (+14 units), making him the most profitable quarterback in those games since he was drafted in 2012 by a wide margin.

When Wilson is on the road during the regular season in prime time he is 8-2-1 ATS.

Carroll also seems to love the limelight. With Seattle, Carroll is 24-6-2 ATS (+17.1 units), making him the most profitable coach in prime time since joining Seattle. — Evan Abrams

Did you know? Entering the 2018 season, 13 consecutive teams failed to cover on the road in Week 2 after playing on the road in Week 1. The Chiefs ended that streak on Sunday, but the Texans fell victim to it again.

Seattle finds itself in this spot on Monday night. — Stuckey
