Base on both team’s average stats I am going to compare them and see what the numbers tell us. Seattle total yards per game is less than what the Raiders defense allow per game. This tells me that the Seahawks should be able to get every yard they normally get in the game and maybe more. Also, the Seahawks average 23 points a game while the Raiders defense allow 29 points per game meaning Seattle will have room to get more points without to much struggle.
The battle of this game comes in with Seattle’s defense and Oakland’s offense. The Seahawks defense doesn’t allow as many yards per game as the Raiders are use to getting per game. Given this stats, the game will decided base on this matchup since the Seahawks offense won’t have much troubles.
If you’re betting on these stats then your moneyline and against the spread bet will be on the Seattle Seahawks. As for the over/under bet, the stats doesn’t give a for sure answer so I wouldn’t bet on this base on these stats.
