Are the Seahawks About to Go on Another Late-Season Covering Spree?

The Seattle Seahawks (7-2-1) are historically slow starters who have a penchant for turning on the jets in the second half of the season, and that’s exactly where Pete Carroll’s club is at right now ahead of a road clash with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (5-5) in Week 12.

Shark Bites
  • The Seahawks are 19-8 ATS in their last 27 games with a closing total of 44.5 or more.
  • The Buccaneers are 5-12 ATS in their last 17 games after an ATS win.
  • The total has gone UNDER in eight of the Buccaneers' last 10 games as an underdog of 5.0 or more.

Oddsmakers initially set the Bucs as 5.5-point underdogs with a total of 45.

When the Seahawks and Buccaneers collide, low-scoring games are the story. The UNDER has paid out in seven of the last nine matchups between the squads.

Seattle has enjoyed traveling to the Sunshine State lately, evidenced by Russell Wilson and company covering the spread in four of their past five games in Tampa.

The month of November has been especially kind to Seattle. The Seahawks are 13-2 SU in their last 15 November tilts.

After starting the season 3-4 ATS, the Seahawks have covered in three straight against Philadelphia, New England and Buffalo. Wilson appears to be healthy again after the signal-caller was forced to deal with a litany of injuries, and he’s thrown for six touchdowns and no interceptions in his last three appearances.
