Seahawks vs. Vikings weather forecast calls for a gametime temperature in the very low single digits and perhaps at zero degrees. There is now chance of snow however and wind speeds are also going to be in the single-digits, though upper.

The offshore Las Vegas Strip scores and odds are Seattle -4, with in some shops as low as -4 flat, yet as high as -4 and -113 elsewhere. Bob Warner of the linemakers website stresses how important it is to shop around even just for the juice as the 13 cents difference is a big deal over long-term. The total has dropped to 39.5, though strangely we see two major sportsbooks at 40 and yet juicing to the over at -113.
The game opened at Seattle -5 and 42.5 but both weather and the downgrade in Marshawn Lynch’s status to out had an effect on both numbers. Still 72 percent of bets are on the Seahawks with 58 percent also supporting the road favorites on the money line and 67 percent on the over.
Here is an evaluation and comparison on some key numbers used to the picks of the pros. To contrast yards per rush on offense, the advantage of betting metrics goes to Minnesota by .2. Passing yards per completion is another index exhausted by sports investors. The lead is in the column of Seattle by 1.4 yards per catch.
Perhaps the most made use of performance indicator by Vegas whales is yards per point. From the offensive examination the better statistics are is in the column of Minnesota by .2.
Insofar as the key records on the defensive side of the ball. The yards per rush guide says the more outstanding run defense is Seahawks by .7. The better-quality passing yards per completion data on defense gives the statistical edge to the same squad from the Pacific Northwest by .1. In terms of yards per point, the best defense in the contest is the Nordic Explorers by 1.3. Turnover ratio favors Seattle by a slim two cumulative for the season.
Yards per point is determined by dividing total yards by number of points. Offensively a lower number is considered more efficient. On defense, a higher number is better.
