Since Pete Carroll took over in Seattle, the Seahawks are 28-5-1 SU in prime time. Since 2016, Hawks are 11-2-2 ATS in prime time. Kirk Cousins in primetime? He stinks. The Seahawks are also 29-14-1 ATS in Week 11 or later since 2013. Adam Thielen was also ruled out yesterday.

But you should be cautious betting this game before opening your account and locking in a bet on Seattle because the flu was spreading around the Seahawks’ locker room this week.


Pete Carroll update yesterday: “We’ve had some guys that have had the illness that’s going around. So, we’ve kept some guys out. Everybody we think of those guys are going to play. There’s no reason that they won’t, other than they feel lousy.”


Betting on Russell Wilson in primetime and fading Kirk Cousins is almost automatic but unfortunately nobody in the betting world is in the business of predicting performances post flu-like symptoms, so it looks like it’s best to sit this one out.
