Green Bay Packers vs Seattle Seahawks Monday Night Football Odds

Filed under: NFL Betting Odds |

The Green Bay Packers and the Seattle Seahawks match up in Week 3 in the NFL on Monday Night Football, with the Packers traveling out west to take on a Seahawks team that appears to be on the right path towards contending for a division title.

And with the San Francisco 49ers losing to the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, Seattle can tie them atop the NFC West with a victory.

For Green Bay, they bounced back nicely in Week 2 after a home loss in Week 1. The Packers dominated the Chicago Bears defensively, repeatedly getting after quarterback Jay Cutler. So you can bet the Green Bay defense, which has been highly criticized, will come in confident going against rookie quarterback Russell Wilson.

So which team is getting the edge from oddsmakers in this one?

Despite being at home, Seattle will be in the role of the underdog. Seahawks vs Packers Monday Night Football betting odds available at Bovada Sportsbook have set Green Bay as 3.5-point favorites over Seattle on the road. To cover this line, the Packers will need to win by at least four points. A win by a field goal or less, and the victory against the spread goes to Seattle.

On the moneyline, Green Bay is paying out -190 on the amount wagered, while a wager on Seattle gets +165.

The over/under point total for the game has been set at 44 points.

It’s difficult to say that the key matchup in this game will be Wilson against the Packers defense, because stopping Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers and the Packers offense is so difficult. But the blueprint has been drawn.

See 49ers vs Packers Week 1.

You can bet Pete Carroll and his coaching staff have thoroughly gone through the tape of that game, to see the schemes designed to get stops.

Still though, Wilson will be the key to the Seahawks in this one. He has shown the ability to make every throw, and appears to have a grasp on the offense already. But the Packers will try to get after him. Wilson hasn’t completed a high percentage of his passes when he faces pressure of five rushers or more, which is under 40 percent. When he has some sort of a pocket, he is completing nearly 80 percent of his passes.

This one kicks off at 8:30pm ET on Monday night, with coverage on ESPN.
