New Orleans Saints (-4, 42) at Seattle Seahawks
Market report from Chris Andrews: Very good two-way action at my opening line of New Orleans -4.5. We have a fairly even ticket count. The money’s pretty even, too. The line could move between now and kickoff, but I have no idea which way. There probably won’t be a bandwagon effect for Geno Smith at QB for the Seahawks. New Orleans lost outright as favorites to the Giants and Carolina. People are always going to bet MNF no matter the matchup. Allegiances may stay split at 4.5 all the way until kickoff. I opened the total at 44.5. Strong Under support drove it straight to 43.5. They kept betting Under, so I dropped to 43. Not much action since the move to 43. Under money stopped, but no buy back yet on the Over.
Youmans: Seahawks coach Pete Carroll has made it clear his offensive plan for this game is to pound the rock. Seattle needs to run the ball and sustain drives to keep its weak defense off the field.
