Don't look now, but Seattle is 7-5 and on a three-game winning streak after decimating Minnesota on the road. They'll head to Baltimore to take on the 4-8 Ravens, who will be the NFL pick?

There were no NFL odds for this game earlier in the week due to the Ravens quarterback situation – whether Matt Schaub or Jimmy Clausen will start – but we’ve now see the Seahawks open up about -10. That's not a good sign when you're facing a Seattle defense that is third in points allowed and second in yards allowed. The defense looked excellent in a 38-7 romp in Minnesota, while QB Russell Wilson has thrown 11 touchdowns with no picks during this three-game winning streak. The Ravens fell 15-13 in Miami and Schaub was banged up, which might open the door for Clausen, which still isn't good news for Baltimore. All eight of the Ravens' losses have been by eight points or less, but that is still a testament to head coach Jim Harbaugh because this team just isn't very good. The Ravens will give Schaub every chance to be healthy as Clausen couldn't score any points with Chicago last year when he replaced an injured Jay Cutler in Seattle. Either way, it might get ugly for the Ravens.

Injuries
The Seahawks lost TE Jimmy Graham for the season with a knee injury. Graham has been hit and miss since coming over from New Orleans, but he was still the second-leading receiver on the team and his presence draws attention from defenders.

Schaub looked like he hurt his shoulder and knee against the Dolphins, but Harbaugh said he might play both Schaub and Clausen. TE Crockett Gilmore didn't practice on Wednesday because of his back, and neither did LB Elvis Dumervil for unknown reasons. T Eugene Monroe has been bothered by his shoulder and other injuries all season and should probably shut it down since the Ravens aren't making the playoffs.

 

Trends
The Seahawks are 5-6-1 ATS overall and 2-3-1 ATS on the road, while the Ravens are 3-7-2 ATS overall and 0-4-1 ATS at home. There is no total out yet, but the Ravens have gone over six times, while the Seahawks have gone over seven times.

Seattle is 2-2 SU and 2-1-1 ATS in four meetings with the Ravens since 1997, but they're 0-2 SU and 0-1-1 ATS in two trips to Baltimore.
