NFL Picks: Lions vs Seahawks Odds and Prediction at SportsInteraction

The Detroit Lions lost their final three games of the regular season and now have the daunting task of ending that slide by going into Seattle and beating the Seahawks in a playoff game. Seattle wasn't exactly the dominant force this season that NFL bettors have come to expect from them in recent years, but they are still a phenomenal home team and are out for another championship run. As 8-point favorites can Seattle eliminate the Lions by winning straight-up and against the spread?

My Team's Next MatchSeattle Seahawks

Seattle finished the regular season in a bit of a slump as well, going 3-3 SU and 2-4 ATS. Winning the NFC West division was never in doubt for this team though, and Seahawks fans are hoping the team can "flip the switch" now that the playoffs are here and make another run to the Super Bowl. They'll have to go through a very one-dimensional Lions team that really struggles to run the ball, and in the NFL, one-dimensional teams typically don't get very far this time of year.

Laying a lot of chalk in the playoffs can be a bit risky given it's do-or-die on both sides, but the Lions are in a horrible spot this week to even keep this game close. Detroit's major weapon offensively is with their passing attack and Seattle's strength on defense is in their pass rush and secondary. The Seahawks rank 9th in the NFL against the pass and when they shut down and frustrate QB Matthew Stafford early on, this game will turn into a route in a hurry. The Lions are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 on the road vs. a team with a winning record at home, while Seattle is on a 4-1 ATS run at home and 5-1 ATS after failing to cover the spread in their last outing. 

Dealing with Seattle's defense, the 12th man crowd noise, and a Seahawks offense that has started to hit its stride will be too much for the Lions to overcome this week. Detroit doesn't have a defense that can strike fear and take advantage of Seattle's offensive line issues, and with Seattle's unit being able to tee off on Stafford and the passing game, the Lions are going to have to wait at least another year before they win their first road playoff game since 1957.
