On Sunday, the Seattle Seahawks (10-6 in 2007) fly east to battle the Buffalo Bills (7-9 in 2007) from Orchard Park. Kickoff is slated for 1:00 PM, and football bettors can view the game regionally on Fox. It was business as usual for HC Mike Holmgren and the Seattle Seahawks in the downtrodden NFC West.
They won their fourth straight NFC West crown, and advanced past the Washington Redskins in the Wild Card round in the playoffs before losing to Green Bay 42-20 in the Divisional round. NFL betting fans who plan on backing the Seahawks early in the season hope that their most recent run of beating the football betting line is set to continue as they’re 7-3 ATS in their L/10 games.
Many football betting followers have tabbed the Bills as a team to watch in 2008. Pre-season NFL betting odds have put Buffalo’s season win total over/under at eight. Bills bettors will hope that they open up their ’08 campaign the same way they did last season, covering the spread in five of their first seven games.
It was a dismal close to last season for Buffalo, as they lost their final three games by a combined score of 53-30. QB Trent Edwards will take over the reigns from former first round draft pick JP Losman. Edwards may have some problems with his pass protection, as Pro Bowl LT Jason Peters is still in the midst of a holdout. Buffalo is 10-3 ATS its L/13 games at home.
NFL betting odds makers have installed the Bills as slender one-point home favorites in this intra-conference match-up, with the ‘total’ standing pat at 39.5. Consider putting the ‘under’ on your football betting card this weekend, as Seattle is 11-4-1 towards the ‘under’ in their L/16 September games, while Buffalo has played 11 out of their L/14 September games under the ‘total’.
