Bet on the NFLNFL betting lines handicappers have seen the Jacksonville Jaguars emerge as a surprise NFL betting team after a poor start whiles the Seattle Seahawks cannot win without Matt Hasselbeck. NFL betting lines players have seen the Jaguars beat the NFL betting board in 3 out of 4 games with 2 consecutive straight up wins heading into Seattle
The Seattle Seahawks scored an impressive 28-0 opening day win against the NFL betting lines versus St. Louis but have not won since as Hasselbeck was injured in week 2 and has not played since then. He is listed as questionable for this NFL betting matchup.
The Jacksonville Jaguars have climbed to rank 11th overall in NFL football betting for points scored. The strength of the Jacksonville attack against the NFL betting lines is their ground attack which is ranked 9th best in the league. Maurice Jones-Drew is the leading rusher for the Jaguars with 296 yards and a 4.7 yards per carry average with 5 touchdowns.
Jacksonville QB David Garrard has continued improved play at quarterback against the NFL betting lines with a quarterback rating of 89.1 and a 5/1 touchdown to interception ratio.
Last week was Jacksonville’s best performance yet against the NFL betting lines as they annihilated the Tennessee Titans 37-17 as 3-point home dogs. Gerrard threw for 323 yards and 3 touchdowns in the payoff against the NFL betting lines.
The Seattle Seahawks were clobbered against the NFL betting lines last week at Indianapolis 17-34 as 10-point dogs. The defense was near helpless against Colts quarterback Peyton Manning who threw for 353 yards and 2 touchdowns against the NFL betting lines. Seattle’s defense has been weak and ranks 19th in total yards allowed. The offense has been impotent without Hasselbeck and ranks just 24th in scoring.
Jacksonville has gone under the total in 4 out of their last 5 road games. Seattle has gone under the total in 6 out of their last 8 games at home. The two teams have combined to go over the total, however, in 4 out of their last 5 head to head meetings.
