Atlanta Falcons at Seattle Seahawks Betting Tips Explained

Monday Night Football has proven to be profitable for the team with the first 10 weeks of the season producing no less than 12 winners, and here are the two bets we expect to be winners when the Seattle Seahawks play host the Atlanta Falcons in a massive matchup for both teams in Week 11…

Seattle’s pursuit of the Los Angeles Rams suffered a setback a couple of weeks ago as they crashed to a surprise home defeat at the hands of Washington, but Pete Carroll’s team bounced back in Week 10 with an important Thursday night win over Arizona and that means they go into Week 11 just one game behind the Rams, who are facing a tricky test in the trip to face Minnesota. Can the Seahawks capitalise if Los Angeles slip-up at US Bank Stadium?

The visitors to CenturyLink Field are an Atlanta team in serious danger of missing out on the playoffs just one season after they appeared in the Super Bowl. The Falcons made a flying start to their 2017 campaign as they reeled off three straight wins, but their play in those victories was far from convincing and it felt like it was only a matter of time before they tripped up, and they did just that when they lost at home to Buffalo in Week 4.

Atlanta went on to lose three of their next four games after that to allow streaking New Orleans to get ahead of them in NFC South, but they registered a big home win over Dallas a week ago to ensure they did not fall further behind the Saints and the pressure is firmly on the Falcons to follow that up with a victory here, making it the first time they have won back-to-back games since Week 3.

The Falcons offense lit teams up in 2016, but they have toiled under new co-ordinator Steve Sarkisan this time around, with the passing game currently ranked just outside the top 10 in yards per game and total yards, while ranking a lowly 18th in points scored. Star receiver Julio Jones is on course for possibly his worst season since 2013 in terms of yards and touchdowns – he has just 715 yards through nine games so far, having passed the 100-mark in only two games this season, while he has found the endzone just once.

So usually now would not be a great time to visit Seattle – but this is not a usual time. The Seahawks have been rocked by Richard Sherman’s season-ending injury and there are concerns Kam Chancellor could sit this one out due to the stinger he suffered against Arizona. Earl Thomas is expected to return here, but the absence of Sherman and Chancellor is a major setback for Seattle and something Matt Ryan can capitalise on if the Falcons can get their aerial game going.

If they can, they have a really good chance of springing an upset here. Russell Wilson is a one-man band on the Seattle offense and he is operating behind an offensive line that does not instil much confidence. This Atlanta pass rush – led by Adrian Clayborn – is coming off a dominant performance where it beat up on Dallas quarterback Dak Prescott a week ago, and if it can repeat that display here they are going to make life difficult for Wilson on Monday night.

So I find myself doing something that has been almost unthinkable in recent seasons – backing Seattle to lose at home. The Falcons have struggled to match last season’s heights, but Seattle have been weakened and they are there for the taking in what is likely to be a low-scoring encounter.
