The Minnesota Vikings 8-3 (9-2 ATS) have been a bettors best friend this season. They lead the NFC North and come into this week 13 match-up against the Seattle Seahawks 6-5 (4-6-1 ATS) as a small favorite.

Seahawks at Vikings money line, over/under and point spread

Betting lines are all from the Bovada Sportsbook.

Early action has been leaning towards Seattle, as they’re seeing about 75% of the money line wagers. Bettors are split on the over/under at this point, with slightly more bets (58%) coming in on the over.

Stats and injuries

So, how about the injuries?

Marshawn Lynch is banged up, so Thomas Rawls will continue to dominate the carries. Paul Richardson is also injured again. He can’t seem to stay healthy. Minnesota have a number of players listed on the injury report this week, including Adrian Peterson and Teddy Bridgewater, but neither are at a risk of missing this game.

On paper, the Seahawks are still one of the most threatening teams in the NFL. They rank inside of the top ten in the three major defensive statistical categories. Seattle also rank inside of the top ten in points and rushing on offense, but they’re fighting for the wild card. The great numbers posted by Seattle haven’t translated to wins.

Bet on the Seahawks money line against the Vikings

Seattle have been getting on the right track for over a month now. They started a bit slot, but the Seahawks are now on a 4-1 run in their last five games. I was really impressed with Seattle last week. They were without Lynch, but still scored 39 points against the Steelers in a 39-30 victory. Seattle have averaged 33.3 PPG since their bye.

I also like the fact Seattle have owned Minnesota in lately. These teams don’t play head-to-head often, but the Seahawks are 2-0 since 2012, with a 30-20 win and 41-20 win, both of which were at home. This road game will be tougher, though, as the Vikings are 4-1 at home and Seattle are 2-3 on the road this season.

Russell Wilson and Doug Baldwin have developed good chemistry the past few weeks. He capped off a great month of November with 6 receptions for 145 yards and 3 TDs against Pittsburgh. Minnesota are tough to pass on, though, so I actually expect Rawls to play a bigger role. Rawls has shown he has big game potential.

Peterson has been having an incredible season in Minnesota. He has already rushed for 1164 yards and 8 TDs, so who knows where he’ll end up by week 17. However, the Seahawks will make it their mission to shutdown AP in this match-up. They know the likes of Stefon Diggs and Mike Wallace won’t beat them through the air.

The player to watch on the Vikings offense is Kyle Rudolph at TE. For whatever reason, the Seahawks can’t stop TEs from beating them in the pass game. Bridgewater will be tasked with managing the game and giving his team a chance to win in the 4th quarter, so he’ll likely look to dump it off to Rudolph regularly.

I’m not betting on the over/under, but I’d lean under. Bridgewater hasn’t been explosive and I expect Seattle to take the run game away by stacking the box. With that being said, Minnesota won’t score much. On the other hand – the Seahawks have been on a tear offensively, which is why I’m not betting on the under.
