Seattle Seahawks vs Minnesota Vikings NFL Odds, NFL Predictions & NFL Picks: The Seattle Seahawks and the Minnesota Vikings will square off this afternoon at the Metrodome in Minneapolis. The Seahawks are fighting to stay in the NFC West race while the Vikings are looking to build on their big lead in the NFC North. Kickoff is set for 1:00pm ET on FOX. NFL Odds at Sportsbook.com have the Vikings listed as a -10.5 against the spread favorite.
Seahawks Breakdown: Seattle fell to 3-6 last weekend, losing 20-31 to the Cardinals in Arizona. The defeat, which was the third in the Seahawks last four games, was especially disheartening because a win would have left Jim Mora's squad just a game back of the first place Cards and put them a tie for second place with the Forty Niners. Despite the failure, though, Mora believes his team can build on the solid effort and make a push down the stretch.
"From the reaction I got in the locker room (Sunday), I do," Mora said. "There's hope. Disappointment, but (we are) somewhat encouraged."
Vikings Breakdown: Minnesota improved to 8-1 last Sunday, pounding the Lions 27-10 at the Metrodome. The win, which gave the Vikes a three game lead over the Packers in the NFC North, featured a too close for comfort first half. Brad Childress squad went into the break with just 10-3 lead after a couple of first half miscues. Wide reciever Percy Harvin indicated that his team must stop that if they want to be considered the best in the NFC.
"To be a great team, we have to come out from the jump and play all four quarters," Harvin said. "We're doing some great things but we haven't reached our peak yet."
NFL Odds Betting Trend: Minnesota is 6-3-1 against the spread and 10-0 straight up in its last 10 games as a home favorite with a total between 44.5 and 47.
Seattle Seahawks +10.5 (-110), Over 46.5 (-110), +425 (Moneyline)
Minnesota Vikings -10.5 (-110), Under 46.5 (-110), -550 (Moneyline)
