10* Seattle / Carolina – Under 44January 16, 2016 at 10:21 am #26059
Playoff Game of the Year!
Getting this under a field goal is a great line. If not for Blair Walsh missing a 27 yard shank FG last week, Seattle would not be here. Carolina well rested, at home where they are 8-0 SU and 6-2 ATS and score 30 ppg on offense and allow 17 ppg on defense. This is a 1 loss team that has the NFL’s MVP starting at QB (he will win it) and between Newton and Wilson, I will take Newton who already has beat Seattle on the road this year and Carolina is avenging a bad playoff loss to Seattle last year. All the makings of a good game here, but a home team with a rock start QB, better running game and just as good of defense with Newton at the helm is a take. Play 3 Units on Carolina.January 16, 2016 at 11:16 am #26081

I’m taking the points with the Seahawks on Sunday. This is a much different Seattle team that the one Carolina beat 27-23 in October. And we should note that in that game, Seattle actually led by nine points (23-14) with less than five minutes to go in the game. Seattle left the door open and Cam Newton did a fine job of taking advantage, leading to a game winning TD pass to Greg Olsen with 32-seconds left in the fourth quarter. Back then, Jimmy Graham was still healthy and Seattle was trying too hard to make him an integral part of the offense. He led the team in receiving that day, and current top target WR Doug Baldwin was an afterthought, finishing with just three receptions for 23 yards. Baldwin has become Russell Wilson’s favorite target since the Graham injury and the Seattle offense began calling plays that suit them best. They’ll face a Carolina secondary that’s a little different than the one Seattle saw in October. We are also likely to see Marshawn Lynch on Sunday, which makes this offense that much more dangerous. Seattle enters on a 6-1-1 ATS run on the road against teams with a winning home record, and under Pete Carroll, the Seahawks are 19-6 ATS when playing with revenge, outscoring the 25 opponents by an average of 25-17.
I’m taking the points with the Seahawks, my Sunday Beatdown.

over Seattle (1:05pm est):
The Carolina Panthers haven’t got any respect this entire season despite coming close to going undefeated with a 15-1 overall record. Going back to last year’s regular season the Panthers won 19 straight games overall before losing to the Falcons. They come into this one having won 11 straight games at home with the last 10 victories being large enough to cover this point spread in this game. The Panthers have had a week to rest which is huge as it gave them a chance to not only rest everyone up but also prepare an extra week for this contest. Carolina has been playing with a chip on their shoulder most of the year but that chip should be even bigger in this one as the players know the point spread and this line being this low means their supposedly not any better than Seattle, a team they’ve already beaten earlier this season and did it in Seattle as well.
The icing on the cake though for added motivation here for Carolina is the fact their opponent in this one is the same team who knocked them out of the playoffs last year. This should be Carolina’s home run game this season. The Seahawks have to be a tired football team as this will be their 4th straight hard fought battle. In their last 4 games Seattle has played (and lost) to a very physical St. Louis team, went into Arizona to play the 13-2 Cardinals at the time, played on the road again last week in Minnesota in a hard hitting game that they somehow caught a huge break in and won 10-9.
This is their 4th straight tough game and 3rd straight on the road. That has to take a toll on a team especially when their foe is well rested like the Panthers are in this one. The Seahawks have had a heck of a run these last 3 years but during that time they’d never had to play a road playoff game until last week where they dodged a major bullet to advance. It’s a whole different ball game playing on the road in the NFL playoffs than it is at their awesome home field and they will be walking into a hornet’s nest in this one.
Take Carolina minus the points here.January 16, 2016 at 2:00 pm #26155

***Divisional Round Game of Year***
How the pressure continues to mount for the Carolina Panthers. Pete Carroll must be enjoying this moment knowing he’s already been there. The Panthers were one game shy of perfection. They have six pro bowlers on their team. They dominated on both sides of the ball all year long. They clearly have the NFL’s MVP in quarterback Cam Newton. They have had a week to rest and open their playoff hopes at home. And they are barely favored by Vegas oddsmakers. Losing here will put Panther “respect” behind a full generation. That’s the definition of pressure. Now they have to get by the best team of the past few years playing great and lucky football against the Conference Champions zooming with confidence. It seems like just last year Carolina lost to Seattle 31-17 in the divisional round. The Seahawks say to hold that thought and add this; The Panthers 27-23 two touchdown comeback win in week 6 means nothing. This post season contest has been elevated to a “means everything game”. That’s pressure. Cam Newton has thrown four interceptions in his last two games against the Seattle secondary. That has to be on his mind. On the Seahawks mind is Super Bowl redemption from last year’s loss from the one yard line by not giving Lynch a chance to run four times to win. That loss gnaws at them. Twenty four hours a day. For the entire year. A return to the Championship game is their mission. Of which they know how to accomplish. The Seahawks have experience and pedigree. Seattle’s overall defense is awesome and Russell Wilson is playing as well as any quarterback. His 4th in the NFL QB ratings, coupled with post season experience and the points, are the play with Seattle moving on to another game next week.January 16, 2016 at 4:58 pm #26227
