The Seattle Seahawks are 4-point underdogs in their Week 6 showdown with the New England Patriots.
The Seattle Seahawks are 4-point underdogs for Sunday's contest against the AFC East-leading New England Patriots, according to Oddsshark.
The Seahawks (3-2) are coming off a 16-12 win over the Carolina Panthers in Week 5, and while their passing game has struggled mightily in 2012 (ranked 31st in passing yards), the Patriots' pass defense is one of the worst in the NFL. If there were a week to get Russell Wilson on track, this might be the one.
New England downed the Denver Broncos, 31-21, last Sunday in a game that was more lopsided than the final score would indicate. The Patriots led 31-7 with five minutes left in the third quarter and almost fell victim to yet another Peyton Manning comeback, but held off the Broncos down the stretch.
The over/under for Sunday's game is currently set at 44.5 or 45 at various sportsbooks after opening at 44.
Kickoff for Sunday's game is scheduled for 1:05 p.m. PT at CenturyLink Field. The game will be televised on CBS.
