THE STORY: The Seattle Seahawks have sparked quite a debate just by being in the playoffs - qualifying by virtue of winning the NFC West despite a 7-9 record - and they would love nothing more than to create an even greater buzz Saturday by knocking off the defending Super Bowl champion New Orleans Saints in their NFC wild card matchup. Despite being the first NFL team to win its division with a losing record, the Seahawks have their share of playoff seasoning - this is their sixth postseason appearance in the past eight years.  But they've also had their share of problems against the pass, ranking 27th in the league, which doesn't bode well against Drew Brees and the NFL's third-best passing offense.


OPENING LINE: Saints -10.5, O/U 45.5 - The line has move down to -10 and 44 on the total.

WEATHER: The game-time temperature is expected to be in the low-40s with a 40 percent chance of rain.

The Saints placed running backs Christopher Ivory and Pierre Thomas on the IR this week!  That leaves Reggie Bush and Julius Jones with the bulk of the rushing duties.

Being a die hard Saints fan this game scares be a lot, if Brees doesn't get better protection, more time to find his recievers downfield the Saints will have a hard time covering this spread, maybe even winning the game!

My early lean - Seattle +10 / Under 44

I think you'd be right to take those points. Could be a close game.

I think the Saints will show up. They know what they're playing for and how easy it is to get knocked out.

GUYS, a small play on the ML here looks great. Seattle is getting +450 at some books, $450 for every $100 you bet !! Small play, say $50 would win you $250 if Seattle were to win !! Worth a shot if you have a big set of BALLS !! LOL
