NFL Playoff odds: Seahawks vs. Falcons

Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks enter Sunday's Divisional round contest against the Atlanta Falcons as slight underdogs.


Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks are once again underdogs this weekend, as they head to Atlanta to take on Matt Ryan and the top-seeded Atlanta Falcons.

According to OddsShark, Atlanta enters Sunday's Divisional round contest as anywhere between one and three-point favorites, depending on the book. The over/under for the game is set either at 45.5 or 46, again, depending on the book.

Ryan will try to notch his first-ever playoff victory. Since taking over as the Falcons starting quarterback in 2008, Ryan is 0-3 in playoff games -- with two of the losses coming at home.

Still, the trending odds are slightly against Seattle. The Seahawks are just 7-14 in their last 21 road games, while the Falcons are 11-1 in their last 12 home contests.

Seattle will be slightly shorthanded on Sunday, as Chris Clemons was placed on injured reserve. Clemons tore his ACL and meniscus during Seattle's Wild Card round win over the Washington Redskins.

Kickoff between the Falcons and Seahawks is scheduled for 10 a.m. PT. Televised coverage can be found on FOX.
