Seahawks vs. Jaguars predictions: Some confidence in Seattle at last

More unusual football ahead for the Seattle Seahawks (-3.5), it seems.

Seattle currently has a slew of unsold tickets available ahead of its game against the Jacksonville Jaguars (+3.5) on in Week 8. Russell Wilson, Chris Carson, and a different offensive lineman nearly each week, it’s hard to guess how many points this team will be able to put up each week, even as the defense looks to be improved lately.

According to DraftKings Sportsbook, the Seahawks are 3.5-point favorites against the hilariously dysfunctional Urban Meyer-coached Jaguars.

National media still has more faith in the powers of proven stars like Bobby Wagner and DK Metcalf over the growing pains in Jacksonville. Nine of the ten NFL.com folks have picked Seattle, with only Daniel Jeremiah giving the Jags a one-point win. All ten of the ESPN experts have also gone with Pete Carroll’s team.

However, most predictions are falling within the 3.5 point margin given by DraftKings, with some clear attention to the offensive...showing of last week. 17-16 has been a popular pick, and apart from one of the Seahawks wide receivers doing what they can do, 17 feels like a good goal for (hopefully) one more week without Russell Wilson.

Here’s what the Field Gulls staff is picking:
