NFL Odds: Seahawks Underdogs Vs. Packers

The Seattle Seahawks are currently 3.5-point underdogs to the Green Bay Packers in their Monday Night Football matchup, according to OddsShark.

The line opened with the Packers 6.5-point favorites, but with a Packers defense that has struggled against the run, and Seahawks rushing attack that has averaged 148.5 yards per game, that line has shifted.

Two weeks of an NFL season is too small a sample size to make an accurate judgement on this year's squads, but the Packers' offensive history would suggest that they're playing below their ability in 2012. Being without running back James Starks has left the Packers running game sputtering, as they have averaged just 75.5 yards per game. Without primary target Greg Jennings, quarterback Aaron Rodgers threw for just 219 yards in the Packers' Week 2 win against the Bears.

The over/under for Monday's game is set at 47.5.

Kickoff is slated for 5:30 p.m. PT, and will be televised on ESPN.
