NFL 2015 Divisional Playoff Odds and Round Two Load Up Advice

Seahawks are rested and ready to defend their title

Aiming to become the first back-to-back Super Bowl Champions since New England turned the double back in 2004-2005, Seattle is rested and ready after enjoying a first round bye. Our list of reasons for rolling with the Champs over the Panthers is a long one but it begins with the Hawks Legion of Boom defense, then moves to RB Marshawn Lynch and it's capped off by QB Russell Wilson. The game being played at CenturyLink Field helps the Seahawks a ton as well. Another huge underlying factor is Seattle getting Max Unger back in the lineup as the All Pro Center brings a big boost to the Hawks running game and pass protection on offense.

Their win over Arizona was nice but the Cats season ends in the Clink

Talk about empty rewards. A week after they clipped the Cardinals 27-16 in Carolina, the Panthers now have to head out on the road and into the most hostile territory in all of football – to battle the defending Super Bowl Champs no less. Facts are facts and the Panthers 7-8-1 regular season record was not a mirage – this team is mediocre at best. While the Cats have some solid pieces, they are simply not on the same plateau as the Hawks. Carolina received some bad news on the injury front as run stopping DT Star Lotulelei suffered a fractured foot last weekend and will not play on Saturday. Also, QB Cam Newton is far from 100% healthy. Carolina vs Seattle Recent History: The Panthers and Seahawks have played some close games recently as their last three meetings were all won by Seattle, in Carolina, and were decided by five points or less. That said, the vast majority of these Cats have never played in Seattle - including Cam Newton who is easily rattled and prone to making major mistakes when the going gets tough. These clubs last battled at the Link in 2010 with Seattle punishing the Panthers 31-14 behind three Marshawn Lynch rushing touchdowns. Panthers vs Seahawks Betting Advice: While we are 99.8% positive that Seattle wins here, we are always leary of the dreaded back-door cover when it comes to monster spreads. Our confidence in the Hawks not looking past the Panthers is enough for us to place our first load up and prosper wager of 2015. Back the Champs with a 10000 unit wager on the money line price posted at SportsInteraction.
