Seattle is favored as it prepares to face Buffalo in Toronto.
As seen on OddsShark, the Seahawks are five-point favorites on a couple of sports books, while 5Dimes currently has Seattle as a seven-point favorite. The Seahawks are 4-1 in their last five games and have played themselves into playoff contention. At 8-5, Seattle currently holds a one-game advantage in the Wild Card race.
The Seahawks were favored by three points when the line opened, indicating that bettors have put money on Seattle as the game approaches. That wouldn't be a terrible bet, as the Seahawks did cover the spread in each of those most recent four wins, most recently a 58-point victory over the Arizona Cardinals when favored by 11.5 points.
In addition, Marshawn Lynch leads the Seahawks run game to 152 yards per game, fourth-best in the NFL. Meanwhile, Lynch's old team, Buffalo, sports the league's fifth-worst run defense, and also allows the fifth-most points per game at 27.1.
