The Philadelphia Eagles enter the playoffs with the lowest winning record in the 2019 NFL Regular Season from the NFC.
Doug Peterson’s side were able to win the NFC East with a 9-7 record but had to put in a big performance to beat the New York Giants on Sunday. It was another game in which injuries were picked up and virtual unknowns were thrown into action. Running back Boston Scott made a name for himself.
Meanwhile, the Seattle Seahawks missed the opportunity to get home field advantage in the Wildcard round when they lost at home to the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday. Down 26-21 in the final minute they got to the opponents’ 1-yard line but failed to turn it into a touchdown.
Pete Carroll’s side have had their fair share of injuries, most notably at running back. Marshawn Lynch came out of retirement to play on Sunday.
I am not surprised the 11-5 visitors are favourites to win this Sunday, but I was expecting their odds to be shorter. The Seahawks represent the best value of all the Wildcard games this weekend. They are 10/13 and only -2 on the spread.
Pick: Seattle Seahawks -2
