Moneyline: Saints -220, Seahawks +180
Our picks for Saints vs. Seahawks
Pick against the spread: Saints -4
The Seahawks fought admirably against the Steelers last week and have homefield advantage here. However, the Saints have a far better quarterback that will stretch the field. New Orleans’ defense is solid as well. The road team is the pick here.
The Seahawks went over this line in the last game due to overtime. Don’t expect that to happen again. New Orleans should control the ball more and more importantly, limit Geno Smith and Seattle’s offense. This could be a rough one to watch for fans.
Preferred player prop: Tyler Lockett under 46.5 receiving yards (-115)
Lockett has been impacted the most by Wilson’s injury. The speedy receiver gets most of his production on deep throws and Smith is simply not as effective as Wilson in that area. The Seahawks should start taking more shots downfield as Smith gets more reps, but don’t expect Lockett to be able to beat this New Orleans defense for a big play.
