Monday Night Football Betting Preview: Seahawks Favored By One Over Washington

Monday Night Football betting NFL odds Seattle Washington 2021

The Week 12 NFL schedule delivered several closely contested matchups with results that will have lasting implications on the playoff picture, and now Monday Night Football audiences are presented with a dud that has many already looking toward next Sunday.

While neither team is counted out from postseason contention at the moment, the fact remains that literally any other game occurring during Week 12 would have been a more intriguing contest to present in front of an exclusive national audience.

Despite this potentially awful pairing of less-than-mediocre teams, there are still some interesting NFL betting aspects in play as both franchises are still seeking to establish playoff relevance.  The following NFL game line for MNF Week 12 reveals what could be a close one tonight.

Seattle Seahawks @ Washington Football Team

  • Seahawks Point Spread: -1.0
  • Seahawks Moneyline: -120
  • Washington Point Spread: +1.0
  • Washington Moneyline: +100
  • Over/Under: 46.0
  • Final Score Projection: Seattle 24, Washington 22

If Washington Beats Seattle

If the Football Team can score a victory tonight against the Seahawks, they will climb to 5-6 and remain even in the NFC East with the Philadelphia Eagles and a game ahead of the New York Giants. A win will also place them within 2 games of the division-leading Dallas Cowboys, keeping Washinton alive in the race for the NFC East title as well as a potential wild card spot.

A win will place Washington no worse than 10th overall in the National Football Conference, three back of a wild card spot. The odds posted at NFL Playoff betting sites do not grant Washington much of a chance of winning the NFC East, and their placement as tenth overall in the NFC Championship futures matches their current standings.

A reason for optimism in D.C. is the fact that their Football Team has not dropped a game to a sub-standard opponent all season. Unless the Seattle Seahawks of yesteryear make a surprise appearance tonight, Washington has a great chance of covering and outright winning the game.

If Seattle Wins Monday Night Football

The Seahawks need the win against Washington just to remain relevant in 2021-22. The NFC West was predicted in the preseason NFL futures odds to be the most competitive, and so far, that projection is playing out as three of the four franchises are in the top 7 in the NFC as of this writing.

At 3-7, Seattle is already in a position where they cannot afford another loss. Memories of Russell Wilson’s wild on-field antics resulting in miraculous touchdowns are already starting to fade as this year’s incarnation of the Seahawks just can’t seem to get right.

That is evidenced by the above Monday Night Football betting line that grants Seattle an NFL point spread advantage of 1.0 at Lumen Field over Washington, a designation normally reserved for the best-of-the-best in the National Football League.

Tonight’s NFL moneyline odds on the Seahawks are near even suggesting that the game is pretty much a pick’em, but the futures odds for the NFC place Seattle a couple of slots ahead of Washington overall.
