Monday Night Football Betting Preview: Seahawks Aim for 12th Straight MNF Win

The Atlanta Falcons and Seattle Seahawks take center stage in the Week 11 edition of Monday Night Football in what could end up being one of the best prime-time matchups we’ve seen so far in the 2017 campaign.



MyBookie opened the Falcons as 3-point road underdogs with a total of 45.

Shark Bites
  • The Falcons are 5-2 SU in their last seven games against the Seahawks.
  • The Falcons are 5-2 ATS in their last seven games on the road against the Seahawks.
  • The Seahawks are 4-1 ATS in their last five games when hosting an East Coast team.

After enduring a five-game ATS losing streak, the Falcons got back on track in Week 10 by hammering the Dallas Cowboys 27-7. Matt Ryan threw for 215 yards and two scores, while Tevin Coleman rushed 20 times for 83 yards and a touchdown in the wake of an injury to starting running back Devonta Freeman. Defensive end Adrian Clayborn recorded a team-record six sacks in the big win, but the absence of Ezekiel Elliott was noticeable for the Cowboys.

Seattle triumphed over Arizona in the Week 10 showcase of Thursday Night Football but it was a costly win. The Seahawks lost star cornerback Richard Sherman for the remainder of the year with a ruptured Achilles tendon. Seattle is very deep on defense, but it’s a massive loss for the club.

Russell Wilson is simply flat-out dominant in Monday Night Football. In six career Monday games, Wilson is 6-0 SU with 12 touchdowns and no interceptions while going 3-2-1 ATS in that span. As a team, the Seahawks are a perfect 11-0 SU in their last 11 Monday tilts.

OVER bettors will be paying close attention to this one, and for good reason. In the last seven meetings between the Seahawks and Falcons, the OVER is 6-1.
