Moneyline: Seahawks +194, Lions -245 

Total: O 47.5, U 47.5 (-110) 


The Seahawks Disappointed in Week 1

Starting on a shaky note, the Seattle Seahawks find themselves with a 0-1 record, owing much to their recent 30-13 setback against the LA Rams. Quarterback Matthew Stafford, though boasting an impressive 334 passing yards from 24 completions out of 38 attempts, failed to ink his name on the touchdown list. The silver lining for the Seahawks was Kyren Williams, who galloped to 52 rushing yards, notching up 2 touchdowns. In the aerial duel, Puka Nacua emerged as a shining beacon, amassing 119 receiving yards across 10 receptions. On the defensive front, Ernest Jones spearheaded the charge with 9 total tackles. Sack leaders for the game, notably Byron Young, Aaron Donald, Michael Hoecht, and Kobie Turner, each chipped in with half a sack. Yet, the lack of interceptions raised eyebrows about the secondary’s prowess.

Contrastingly, the Detroit Lions entered the fray with renewed vigor. Sporting a 1-0 record, they celebrated a nail-biting victory against the Chiefs, clinching the game 21-20. Quarterback Jared Goff exhibited flair and finesse, completing 22 of his 35 attempts, covering 253 yards, and securing a touchdown. On the ground, David Montgomery was a force to reckon with, as he bulldozed his way to 74 yards, crowned with a touchdown. Through the air, Josh Reynolds stood tall with 80 yards over 4 receptions. Defensively, Alex Anzalone was omnipresent, making 6 total tackles. Brian Branch’s interception was a crucial turning point, reflecting the Lions’ rejuvenated defensive tenacity.



As the teams gear up, BUSR NFL Odds tip the scales in favor of the Lions, listing them as 6-point favorites. Their commendable performance against the Chiefs, combined with a strategic evolution under Dan Campbell, underscores their meteoric rise. Conversely, the Seahawks seem caught in turbulent waters. Their encounter against the Rams highlighted evident chinks in their armor, both offensively and defensively. With the Lions playing their home opener, anticipation is rife about them harnessing the home advantage to its fullest. For those looking to place bets, the Lions covering the spread appears to be the haven, but I can see a scenario where we see the Seahawks of last year with a Lions regression and a potential upset. If I’m feeling risky, I’m betting on the Seahawks with their +194 moneyline.

Injury Report 

The Seahawks’ camp echoes with concerns. Key figures like A. Lucas and C. Cross are grappling with knee and toe injuries respectively, marking them as day-to-day. The defense, especially the secondary, appears vulnerable with D. Witherspoon and J. Adams also listed day-to-day. The long-term absence of K. McIntosh, D. Young, B. Mone, and A. Faoliu adds to the worries, while D. Eskridge awaits his return in Week 8 post-suspension.

The Lions, too, have their fair share of injury woes. Immediate concerns revolve around I. Buggs and E. Moseley, are both marked as day-to-day. The indefinite sidelining of J. Okwara, C. Gardner-Johnson, S. Zylstra, and H. Hooker means the team’s depth will be rigorously tested. J. Williams is slated for a Week 7 return post-suspension.

As the whistle blows, two teams with contrasting fortunes and aspirations take center stage. Will the Seahawks rediscover their lost rhythm or will the Lions stamp their authority further? A contest of strategy, skill, and spirit awaits.
