We are at the stage of the season where we are going to start to see more and more teams officially eliminated from playoff contention with each passing week. The reason that we haven’t seen so many teams out of it by now is because of the stunning level of parity that we are seeing in the NFL this season. You have to say that no clear Super Bowl favorite has emerged just yet, although we are seeing a few teams begin to put their foot on the gas. The Houston Texans have had a disastrous season to this point, which is not really surprising, while it also looks as though the Seahawks might be on the outside looking in once the playoffs begin. Seattle will be looking to stay alive this week as an 8 ½ point road favorite. The point total for this one is set at 41. That being said, check out our NFL Betting analysis for the upcoming match between the Seattle Seahawks and the Houston Texans.

Why bet on the Seattle Seahawks
If Seattle does end up missing out on the postseason, you do have to wonder if we will be looking at the end of an era. The talk now is that Russell Wilson might be ready to go on the move, with a few potential destinations already being discussed. At 4-8, they really need to be perfect the rest of the way to give themselves a shot at getting above the playoff line, with this matchup perhaps being the best one they could ask for when a win is required. They are coming off a massive win over the 49ers last time out, so they should be in the right frame of mind for this one. Still, Seattle is just 2-6 SU in their last 8 overall, but they have a solid history in the month of December, winning 4 of their last 5. They have covered the spread in 4 of their last 5 versus the AFC. The UNDER has hit in 5 of their last 6 road games.
Why bet on the Houston Texans
Given what happened in the offseason in Houston, there was always the feeling that the Texans were going to be looking at a long, unpleasant season. That is exactly how things have played out, as they come into this game with a 2-10 record. They have just 1 win in their last 10, a stunning upset victory over Tennessee, and have seen their offense held in the single digits in 6 of those 10 games. As you can see, there is a reason why the point total for this game is set at such a low number. Besides not being a great straight up pick, the Texans have also not been very good against the spread, going 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games played in the month of December. The UNDER has hit in 6 of their last 7 games.
Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction
Given how poor the Texans have been on the offensive side of the football this season, the UNDER looks to be the bet to go with in this game. This should be a comfortable win for the Seattle Seahawks.
Pick: Seattle Seahawks 27 Houston Texans 10
