Seahawks Vs. Giants Odds: Opening Line Features Seattle As 10-Point Underdogs In New York

The Seattle Seahawks are projected as underdogs by a touchdown and a field goal for Sunday's game against the New York Giants. Is that reasonable?

The Seattle Seahawks are 1-3 after four weeks of NFL action, though the team could easily be 2-2 if a couple plays in Sunday's 30-28 loss to the Atlanta Falcons had gone differently. The team has played decently in its last two games, but the Seahawks find themselves as 10-point underdogs for this week's game against the New York Giants.

A big reason for that is location: the Seahawks will take to the road again after back-to-back contests at home, and Seattle has not done well in other teams' arenas this year. The team was outscored by a combined 40 points in Weeks 1 and 2 by the San Francisco 49ers and Pittsburgh Steelers, and things don't figure to be much easier against the 3-1 Giants this week.

Granted, the Seahawks played better after those early road woes and the team could build off of their success this week in New York. However, at least a portion of Seattle's strong two-game showing has to be attributed to its NFL-renowned home field advantage.

The Giants are playing well right now and will enjoy being home after a two-game road trip of their own. Expect the Giants to come out and go up early on the Seahawks. If they do, the Seahawks will have a tough time scoring points (reminiscent of Weeks 1 and 2) and Seattle will struggle mightily to cover the spread.
