Packers are in Tough to Run the Table

The Seattle Seahawks have historically been a reliable late-season team, and it’s happening once again in 2016. The Seahawks, who have covered the spread in four of their last five affairs, will do battle with the Green Bay Packers in Week 14. Sportsbooks opened the Pack as 2.5-point underdogs with an OVER/UNDER of 46.5.

Shark Bites
  • The Seahawks are 17-6 SU in their last 23 games after losing the previous game in a matchup.
  • The total has gone UNDER in seven of the Packers' last 10 games against teams with winning records.
  • The Seahawks are 2-5 ATS in their last seven games against the Packers.

The Seahawks have been awful when making the trip to Lambeau Field in recent seasons. Seattle is a paltry 0-6 SU in its past six on the frozen tundra. Green Bay is coming off a 21-13 home triumph over the Houston Texans, while covering the spread as 6.5-point chalk.

Just how good are the Seahawks in December? Over the last few years, Russell Wilson and company are 9-1 SU and ATS in December games. That includes a 40-7 thumping of the Carolina Panthers in the Week 13 edition of Sunday Night Football.

Up until their struggles this year, the Packers weren’t often underdogs. But when labeled as pups, Green Bay is 4-1 ATS in their last five with the designation.

A few weeks ago, Aaron Rodgers said he believe the green and gold could run the table and win every game remaining in the season. This is undoubtedly their toughest test, but it won't be easy.
