The Seattle Seahawks (7-5) play the Carolina Panthers (4-8) on Sunday, 11 at 21:25 at Lumen Field. Having won seven of their 12 games, the Seattle Seahawks are in second place in the NFC West and have collected three more wins than the Carolina Panthers, who are third in the NFC South ahead of this matchup. The Seattle Seahawks are a clear playoff contender as we enter the second half of the season and will look to strengthen their position against the Carolina Panthers.
Seattle Seahawks Form
The Seattle Seahawks improved their regular season record to 7-5 last week by beating the Los Angeles Rams 23-27. They’ve gone 6-4 in their past ten matches and 3-2 in the last five at home.
There has been no letup from the ever-impressive home offense, having put up 27.0 points on average across the last five matches. This leaves the Seattle Seahawks with a regular season average of 26.5 points. The art of defending isn’t something the Seattle Seahawks excel in though. By allowing 25.3 points per game, their defense has been below average compared to the rest of the league this year.
2021 was a year of doom and gloom for the Seattle Seahawks. A 7-10 record left the home team fourth in the NFC West and out of the playoffs. However, they entered this season billed as an early postseason threat, and judging by their 7-5 start this time around, they’re on target to do just that.
Carolina Panthers Form
The Carolina Panthers went 4-8 for the season last week by defeating the Denver Broncos 23-10. In their past ten matches, they’ve gone 4-6 and are also 0-5 in their last five on the road.
The Carolina Panthers bring an offense that has struggled to click into gear this season, putting up just 19.2 points per game. On the other side of the ball, the defense has been relatively average in the league recently. The visitors have given up 23.4 points in the previous five outings, which is more or less on par with the 22.2 points they’ve allowed per game over the course of the regular season.
In 2021, the Carolina Panthers came home in fourth place in the NFC South standings after going 5-12 across all games. The visitors naturally hope to go even better this season. However, like every other team in the NFL, sealing a spot in the playoffs during this regular season is the first and foremost priority for now.

Against the Spread

For this showdown, the oddsmakers have the spread set at 5.5.
Backing the Seattle Seahawks to cover the spread looks like a red flag here, even on home soil. They’ve failed to cover the spread in their last three outings ahead of Sunday’s matchup. In their previous ten games, the hosts went 5-5 ATS overall and 3-3 ATS in the last six games at home.
Even away from home, the Carolina Panthers look too good to pass up on the spread. Backing the visitors has paid off in each of their last three games, and we’re tempted to go down this route. In their past 10 matches, the Carolina Panthers went 6-4 ATS and also ended up 2-5 ATS from their seven most recent road trips.
