Carolina Panthers vs Seattle Seahawks Odds & Betting Prediction – NFL Week 14 Lines

Written by on December 9, 2022

The Carolina Panthers travel across the nation to face the Seattle Seahawks in an NFC matchup. Despite trading away several key players and letting their head coach go early in the season, the Carolina Panthers have surprised many by being competitive in their games. Similar to the Seattle Seahawks, who are now competing for the NFC West title and are in the postseason picture, they have surpassed expectations.

Who will win this NFC matchup, and why? The best Seahawks vs. Panthers predictions and NFL Odds will be provided once we examine this encounter.

Carolina Panthers Betting Preview: Steve Wilks has Carolina Playing Competitive Football

This season, the Panthers have finished several chapters. Numerous coaches left with Matt Rhule, the previous head coach, and now Mayfield is moving on to new opportunities. Despite this, Panthers Interim Head Coach Steve Wilks and the rest of the team have continued to play competitive football.

Over their last six games, the Panthers have covered the spread in five of those last six. It will be interesting to see how things shake up on the offensive end as Sam Darnold has taken over at quarterback coming back from injury. The former first-rounder impressed in his debut last week, throwing a touchdown and finishing with a passer rating of 103.8 against the Broncos.

While their offense has been an enigma this year, the Panthers’ defense has played some solid football. In addition to holding the Broncos to just ten points in week 12, they also forced two fumbles. Carolina has defended the pass well, but their rushing defense needs to improve as they surrender over 135 yards to opposing rushers.

Seattle Seahawks Betting Preview: Seahawks Fighting for a Playoff Spot

After trading their top quarterback Russell Wilson to the Denver Broncos, few people expected Seattle to accomplish anything in 2022. However, quarterback Geno Smith is among the front-runners for the NFL Comeback Player of the Year, thanks to head coach Pete Carroll’s masterful management of unexpected competitiveness from both the offense and the defense.

The Seattle Seahawks are playing strong football on the gridiron. They are not just 7-5 in the NFL standings but also, shockingly, contenders for the NFC West title. Geno Smith has thrown multiple touchdown passes in six straight games, while Kenneth Walker III should also be in for a huge day, considering Carolina has given up more than 135 rushing yards per game.

The Seahawks are currently in the seventh spot in the NFL playoff picture, and they will need more from their defense if they want to win this game. Seattle has allowed an average of 33.5 points over their last two games, and that won’t get it done if they want to be a playoff contender.

One of the league’s loudest stadiums is Lumen Field, and the Panthers will try to collect their first road victory against the Seahawks. The Panthers have a lot of confidence, and despite recent difficulties, they continue to play competitive football covering the spread in five of their last six games.

Unfortunately for the Panthers, the Seahawks have way more to play for. Not only are they competing for a playoff spot, but they are also competing for the NFC title. Carolina hasn’t won a game on the road this year, and the Seahawks will win this one with strong quarterback play from Geno Smith and their home-field advantage.

MyBookie Free Pick: Seattle Seahawks -4.5 (-110)
