Saints visit Seahawks in battle of top NFC teams

The Seattle Seahawks are 13-0 SU and 10-3 ATS in their last 13 games at home, and could take a big step towards securing home field throughout the postseason with a win Monday night hosting the New Orleans Saints. Seattle is currently going off as a 5.5-point home favorite at BetOnline.

Like Seattle, the New Orleans Saints are one of the premier home teams in the NFL. But on the road, the Saints aren’t nearly as effective, owning a 4-4 SU and 2-6 ATS record in their last eight games. If the Saints win this game, they will move into a tie for first place atop the NFC standings with Seattle and own the head-to-head tie-breaker; so this is a huge game for both teams.

Long before Monday night’s big game, six teams will be in action on Thanksgiving Day. In what is always an intriguing matchup between two NFC North rivals, the Pittsburgh Steelers visit the Baltimore Ravens as 2.5-point road underdogs at 5Dimes.

This series is split 5-5 SU over the last 10 meetings, with Pittsburgh holding the slight ATS edge of 5-3-2 over that span. With both teams sharing an identical 5-6 SU record and fighting for the final playoff spot in the AFC, this should be another great chapter of the rivalry.

On Sunday, the stage is set for another division rivalry game between two 5-6 SU teams battling for the AFC Wild Card as the Miami Dolphins visit the New York Jets. This series has also been extremely evenly matched in recent years, split 4-4 both SU and ATS over the last four meetings between these AFC East rivals. The Jets are a 1-point home favorite at Bovada.

The Arizona Cardinals are 4-0 SU and 3-1 ATS over their last four games and the Philadelphia Eagles are 3-0 SU and ATS over their last three, setting up a good game as Arizona visits Philadelphia as a 3.5-point underdog at BetOnline this Sunday. Other big games this week (with lines provided by BetOnline) include Green Bay +6 at Detroit on Thursday, and Denver -3.5 at Kansas City on Sunday.
