Every season RDM obsesses on the NFL team win total over/unders. It’s one of the more fun bets in all of sports. A single well-placed bet turns an otherwise random team into a must see weekly event. Today we look at the 2012 Seattle Seahawks.
The number: 6.5
At present, you get -320 odds if you bet the over. Conversely, the odds are set at +240 if you bet the under. In general, I’ve tried to take that out of my decision making process. But, this is one of the larger swings — -320 is a massive amount to lay. It shows that a ton of action is coming in on Seattle to get over 6.5 wins.
There’s a lot of love headed Seattle’s way. I’m not sure why. Matt Flynn has looked bad. Really bad.
On Saturday Flynn went 6-of-13 passing for 31 yards. Where is all this Seattle money coming from? Well, for the first time, I’m actually starting to believe n this 12th man thing.
Every yahoo Seahawks season ticket owner must have placed a cool grand on Seattle’s win total over. That’s the only thing that can explain the -320 odds.
As for my take, I’m going the other way. And I hope Russell Wilson wins the QB battle, too.
The pick: under 6.5 wins
