The Seahawks are 4-0 at home this season and opened as a 5½-point favorite over the Jets, who will come to Seattle on Sunday.
Seattle opened as a 5.5-point favorite, although they've moved as high as a 7-point favorite in some places, according to OddsShark.com. Seattle is 6-3 against the spread this season, including 4-0 at home. Performing well against the spread at home is nothing new for Seattle as the Seahawks are 12-2 against the spread in their last 14 home games, including a current seven game winning streak.
The Jets lost four of their last five games, but have been solid against the spread, going 3-2 over that span. New York is 3-2 against the spread on the road this season, but just 4-8 in its last 12 road games. The Jets are 5-3 against the spread this season, but just 3-5 straight up.
The total for Sunday's game opened at 38.5, and recent history suggests the over may be the smart bet. The total went over in eight of Seattle's last 11 home games and 18 of the Jets last 23 road games. The teams haven't faced off much recently, but New York is 5-1 against Seattle dating back to 1995.
