When the 2022-2023 season started, NFL betting sites didn’t give the New York Giants or the Seattle Seahawks much of a chance of success.
Both teams should end up in the basement of the NFC, and no one outside of their respective fanbases disagreed with that assessment.
Fast forward to Week 8 and suddenly this matchup has serious playoff implications for both franchises.
The Seahawks are 4-3 and currently lead the NFC West Division. The New York Giants are off to a hot start, winning six of their first seven games and trailing the NFC East leaders Philadelphia Eagles, arguably the most dominant team in the NFL right now.
This Sunday at 4:25 p.m., the Giants will head to Seattle hoping to keep up in their division, but the +3.0 NFL point spread makes them a field-goal underdog on the road.
New York Giants vs. Seattle Seahawks Betting Line
- Giants Point Spread: +3.0
- Giant’s Moneyline: +130
- Seahawks Spread: -3.0
- Seahawk’s money line: -150
- Over/Under: 44.5
While the New York Giants have rallied behind a 100% healthy Saquon Barkley, the Seahawks under head coach Pete Carroll have come together and are winning as a team.
Journeyman quarterback Geno Smith can no longer be considered a referee because his stats put him among the top passers in the league.
Geno Smith’s stats for 2022-2023 to 7 games
- 1,712 passing yards
- 215 attempts
- 158 completions
- 73.5 completion percentage
- 11 landings
- 3 breaks
- 107.7 QB rating
- 132 yards, 1 touchdown rush
Smith, who entered the league in 2013 as the New York Jets’ second-round draft pick, was not considered an elite passer. As of Week 8, Smith has a 73.5% completion rate, putting him at the top of the NFL in that category.
Despite the fact that the Seahawks are the current division leaders and hold the point distribution lead over a quality team like the New York Giants this weekend, the futures odds published by the NFL Playoffs online sportsbook do not predict that they will win the NFC West will win.
NFC West Odds
- San Francisco 49ers +125
- Los Angeles Rams +170
- Seattle Seahawks +500
- Arizona Cardinals +750
The +500 NFL moneyline offered to the Seattle Seahawks to win the NFC East in 2022-2023 is giving players 5-to-1 returns if bets are placed now.
We suggest you hurry when betting on the Seattle Seahawks because if they beat the Giants as is predicted, their future odds in the division will certainly level out.
NFC East odds
- Philly Eagles -400
- Dallas Cowboys +500
- New York Giants +750
- Washington Football Team +15000
The NFL odds makers don’t give the Giants much respect when it comes to their futures odds either. They are currently listed as the third most likely team to win the division.
1150 points separate New York on the moneyline odds from the Eagles, a team just ahead of them in the current standings. While Philadelphia is the most likely NFC East champion, it’s also clear that professional football bookies don’t believe the New York Giants’ success will last the rest of the season.
