In a sense, the Seattle Seahawks and Detroit Lions share much in common. Both are in last place in their division. Each is 2-5 at home and 2-8 against conference foes. They’re a combined 0-3 against the Chicago Bears.

Seattle is enduring its worst season in 10 years. Detroit is enduring its worst season since last season. That, as much as anything, explains why betting sites have the Seahawks as 7.5-point home favorites in this week’s NFL picks.

Check out the latest Lions vs Seahawks odds, betting lines, injury report and more.

Lions vs Seahawks Key Matchups

Seahawks With Nothing To Play For: Sunday’s 25-24 loss to the Bears means that for just the second time since 2012, 5-10 Seattle won’t make the playoffs. In 2017, the other year they missed, the Seahawks went into the final game of the season still in postseason contention. Meaningless games are new ground for them but old hat for the Lions.

Avoiding Self-Inflicted Wounds: Both teams are displaying expertise at beating themselves this season. The Lions lost to Atlanta when backup QB Tim Boyle threw an interception in a goal-to-go situation. Facing a similar scenario, Seahawks QB Russell Wilson surrendered a 13-yard loss on a sack and Jason Myers missed the ensuing 39-yard field goal, opening the door for a Chicago rally.

Russell’s Swan Song? Will this be Wilson’s final home game as Seahawks QB? Trade rumors have surrounded him all season long. If this is indeed to be his Seattle farewell, Wilson will be fired up to go out a winner.

5 Key Lions vs Seahawks Stats

3: Rushing TDs by Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny in his last three games. He had three rushing TDs in the previous two seasons combined.

17: Points or fewer scored by the Lions in 11 games this season. That’s the most of any NFL team.

10: Losses by the Seahawks, the most ever in a season under head coach Pete Carroll.

70+: Receiving yards by Lions rookie WR Amon-Ra St. Brown in each of his last four games. He’s the first Detroit WR to do this since Golden Tate in 2017.

60: Receiving yards or fewer by Seahawks WR DK Metcalf in each of his past eight games, a career high.

Lions vs Seahawks Weather Forecast

Chicago was afforded Windy City weather last week in Seattle when snow covered Lumen Field. This week, it’s back to Seattle weather. There’s rain in the forecast, a temperature of 35 degrees and 5 mph wind conditions. That doesn’t bode well for the Lions, who are used to the climate-controlled Ford Field dome.

Lions vs Seahawks Moneyline

Seattle is a dreadful 1-3 straight up as a home favorite this season. The Seahawks are 3-8 SU in their last 11 games and 2-5 SU in their past five home games. However, add the Lions to the equation those digits flip-flop. Detroit is 1-6 SU in the last seven meetings with the Seahawks and 1-7 SU in the last seven games the team has played at Seattle.

The Seahawks have won three in a row over the Lions. Detroit’s last win anywhere against the Seahawks was in 2012. The Lions haven’t won at Seattle since 1999. At odds of -305, betting the Seahawks at sportsbooks simply won’t be worth it.

Lions vs Seahawks Point Spread

The line on this game at betting apps opened at Seahawks -9 but quickly shortened to Seattle -7.5. That’s not surprising. If the NFL counted against the spread records, the 2-11-1 Lions would be a playoff team. Among NFL teams, only the Cowboys (12-3) and the Packers (11-4) have won more games ATS than the 10-5 Lions.

Detroit’s 5-3 ATS road record also puts the club among the top 10 in the league. As an underdog of a touchdown or more this season, the Lions are an impressive 8-2 ATS. The Seahawks are 0-5 ATS in their last five games against NFC North teams. Take the points and the Lions in the NFL spreads this week.

Lions vs Seahawks Totals

In NFL betting this season, Seattle is 4-10-1 on the total and 3-4 as a home team. Detroit is 5-10 overall on the total and 2-6 as a road team. The total has gone under in 10 of Detroit’s last 13 games. In six of the Lions’ last eight games facing an NFC West team, the under has proven to be the winning play.

The under was also the play to make in six of Seattle’s last nine games, as well as in nine of the past 13 Seahawks' contests. The under was also the correct wager in four of the past six Seahawks-Lions games. Even with a total of just 42 points, the under is a strong play here.
