New Orleans Saints at Seattle Seahawks

The Seattle Seahawks have never been bad the past 10 seasons. Starting in 2012, they've never posted a losing season.

They also had Russell Wilson that whole time.

Seattle is in survival mode until Wilson can come back from finger surgery. They lost Geno Smith's first start, and on Monday night they're 4-point underdogs at BetMGM against the New Orleans Saints.

The problem the Seahawks have now is that for years they did suboptimal things, but Wilson's greatness would bail them out and they'd believe their overall process was good. Now Wilson isn't there to make a handful of plays that can flip a game. Smith can't make those plays. If you're betting the Seahawks, you're hoping that they do enough around Smith to win or at least keep it close.

The flip side to analyzing this game is figuring out the Saints, who have been inconsistent. Their best is very good. They also don't have a dynamic offense and they can't afford if Jameis Winston is going to turn it over. That makes it tough to take them as favorites.

This seems like a game the 2-4 Seahawks must win. Home-field advantage doesn't mean much anymore, but if there is one left it might be in Seattle. The line has moved this week, from Saints -5 to -4.5 and then down to -4. That seems justified. If you can stomach taking Smith and his inevitable struggles, it's not the worst spot for the Seahawks. They need to win. Maybe that urgency will be enough to at least cover the spread.
