Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks will be looking to bounce back from their humbling week 14 loss when they take on a Carolina Panthers team that has been in complete disarray for several weeks heading into Week 15. Seattle will look to give their hopes of potentially winning the top seed in the NFC a big boost by taking down the struggling Panthers while Carolina is looking to close out the 2019 campaign on a positive note as they look toward the future after firing former longtime head coach Ron Rivera two weeks ago. Now, let’s find out which team is offering the best value against their NFL odds in this matchup.

Why Bet On Seattle?
Seattle might be coming off a humbling 28-12 road loss against the L.A. Rams last weekend, but there are a ton of good reasons to back the Seahawks in this contest. First, Seattle is statistically better on both sides of the ball. Then, there’s the fact that the Seahawks have the huge edge at quarterback where Russell Wilson is an MVP candidate and Carolina’s Kyle Allen is nowhere close to that level. Then, there’s the fact that Seattle had their five-game winning streak snapped against the Rams and will almost assuredly be locked-in and focused for this matchup.

Why Bet On Carolina?
No matter how you look at it, there are only two reasons to back Carolina in this matchup and both of those reasons aren’t all that impressive. First, the Panthers are playing at home, but when you consider that Seattle has gone 6-1 on the road, that isn’t very encouraging for the Panthers. Then, there’s the fact that the Panthers are getting six points as home dogs and they’ve gone 4-0 ATS in their last 4 home games against a team with a winning road record. The bad news is that Carolina has dropped five straight including their 40-20 loss at Atlanta last weekend.

Seahawks vs Panthers Expert Analysis and Prediction
I know Seattle got humbled last weekend, but I think that was a timely loss that will serve Russell Wilson and company well down the stretch run of the regular season, Carolina is a complete mess right now, having fired head coach Ron Rivera two weeks ago and clearly getting ready to move on from longtime franchise quarterback Cam newton. Carolina is struggling to score, topping the 21 point plateau just once during their losing streak. Seattle has gone a bankroll-boosting 10-3 ATS in their last 13 road games while Carolina has gone 2-5 ATS in their last 7 home games and 1-4 ATS in their last five games overall. Lay your NFL betting bucks on Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks and you won’t go wrong!
