NFL odds Week 12: Seahawks vs. Dolphins

The Seattle Seahawks are 2.5-point favorites on the road vs. the Dolphins.

Timothy T. Ludwig-US PRESSWIRE

It's not often that the Seattle Seahawks find themselves as favorites on the road, but this Sunday against the Miami Dolphins that is the case. The Seahawks are favored by 2.5 points as they come off their bye week and take their talents to South Beach.

Both teams feature rookie QBs, with the Seahawks being led by third-round pick Russell Wilson and the Dolphins featuring first rounder Ryan Tannehill under center.

The over/under has been set at 37.5 for the showdown between the rookie QBs. Another reason it figures to be a low-scoring affair is the mismatch between the Seahawks defense and the Dolphins offense. Seattle has the second-ranked defense in the NFL (16.1 ppg), while Miami has the league's 26th-ranked offense (18.7 ppg).

In four of Seattle's last five road games the total has gone under.

The Seahawks are 1-5 in their last six home games and just 2-4 against the spread in those same games.
