Carolina Panthers vs Seattle Seahawks  

 

Point Spread Value

The Panthers and Seahawks rivalry has been a good one in recent seasons. Will it live up to the billing in week 13 of the 2016 campaign remains to be seen? It’s no secret the Panthers are struggling behind a 4-7-0 SU and 3-7-1 ATS record underscored by a -0.5 losing margin and -4.1 differential versus the spread. The Seahawks are enjoying contrasting fortunes, up in their division with a 7-3-1 SU and 6-5-0 ATS record that includes a 3.4 winning margin and -0.5 differential versus the spread. At home, the Seahawks may be a perfect 5-0-0 SU but they are only 3-2-0 ATS with an 8.0 winning margin and 0.0 differential versus the spread. All things being considered, it does seem a lot of points to lay with the Seahawks in their current form for week 13 NFL picks.

The Survivor

The Panthers certainly love sticking it to the Seahawks whenever the opportunity presents itself. However, in this woeful 2016 campaign, one wonders whether there is any incentive to do so save, perhaps, playing the role of party-pooper. As it is, the Panthers look down and out and any postseason hopes are a pipedream, The Seahawks just suffered a bit of a humiliating loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, a setback that sees them slip to 7-3-1 SU overall. If there’s one bright spot, it’s the fact that the rest of the NFC West is struggling and looking unlikely to challenge the Seahawks for the divisional title. As far as this matchup is concerned, the Seahawks are 5-0-0 SU at CenturyLink. If there ever was a sign the Seahawks were ripe to bounce back in week 13 NFL betting, that record alone should instill confidence in NFL bettors.

Game Total

The Panthers are 6-5-0 in O/U betting this season with a +4.1 differential versus the total. The Seahawks are 5-6-0 in O/U betting with a -6.6 differential versus the total. It’s a total and complete tossup which way this game is going to go, particularly as the Seahawks offense can’t seem to find any consistency at all. Past trends between these two teams though veer towards a low-scoring affair.
