The Seattle Seahawks have the best record in the NFL right now, but are they the best team in the league? Maybe not, following the recent suspensions of two of their cornerbacks. The New Orleans Saints hope to take advantage when they visit CenturyLink Field for Monday Night Football. The NFL lines have New Orleans getting six points (–115) with a total of 47 for the primetime showdown.
The Seahawks (10-1 SU, 7-4 ATS, over 6-5) announced on Tuesday that CB Walter Thurmond was given a four-game suspension for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy. In addition, CB Brandon Browner is reportedly facing a one-year suspension for violating said policy. Browner is expected to appeal, but is already uncertain to return this season due to a groin injury suffered in Week 10.
Seattle has the top-ranked defense in the league in terms of efficiency, but the Saints (9-2 SU, 6-5 ATS, under 6-5) hope their No. 3-ranked offense can take advantage of the weakened Seahawks secondary. A win on Monday night (8:30 PM ET, ESPN) would put New Orleans in position to take down the top playoff seed in the NFC, and home-field advantage all the way up to Super Bowl XLVIII.
Turkey Day Specials:
Lions -6 1/2 Packers…..This game will be closer as packers have more fighting chance with Flynn named starting QB would chose Packers out right if Rodgers was available but still lingering from clavicle injry so take the Packers and take the points but lions should win at hom by probably by a FG.
Cowboys -9 1/2 Raiders…..Just have feeling that Oakland willl show up seeing that its a national game and dont wanna be embarassed and through Romo usually plays good on Turkey Day 2 things vs him dallas cant stop run or thrown as evidence as record day by Brown last week and Oakland should hold their own defensively.
Ravens -3 1/2 Steelers….Not a huge fan of falco knew last season was a fluke where they won the super bowl but in his credit he had much better weaspon and Rice is horrible lately and Big Ben been playing lot better an pittsburgh will elimanate ravens from playoffs hunt.
