This Saturday night features a preseason match up between the Seattle Seahawks and the Minnesota Vikings. The game is 8:00 PM EST and will be played at the Metrodome. Our Seahawks vs Vikings Predictions, Spread and Betting Odds can be found below!
The Seahawks come into this game 1-1, coming off a close loss, 27-24, to Green Bay at home. At home, they failed to win against the -2.5 spread and both teams put up well above the game total of 40.5. QB Matt Hasselbeck had a decent night going 11-15 with 127 yards and a TD, while backup QB Charlie Whitehurst threw 2 interceptions and was below average in the second half.
The Vikings come in to this game 1-1, also coming off a loss to the 49ers on the road, 15-10. They failed to cover the spread of +1 and bettors taking the under were pleased that the game total fail well below 35. Brett Favre took just 4 snaps in this game. The rest were taken by a combination of Tarvaris Jackson, Jason Webb and Sage Rosenfels. They combined for 16-32 and 101 yards. Needless to say, not the best performance.

Seahawks vs Vikings Predictions for Preseason Game:
Spread Prediction (Top Play) – The line has the Vikings as 5.5 point favorites at home. This is there first game at home, so expect them to be psyched up for this one. I think that the Vikings will be able to exploit the Seahawks 28th ranked rush defense as there new rookie Toby Gerhart gets more touches. Percy Harvin may seem some playing time in this game which will provide the QB’s with another option. PREDICTION – VIKINGS -5.5
Game Total prediction – Both of these teams can put up some points. The Vikings defense has been quite good this preseason and I expect that to continue but I think that the Vikings are going to explode on offense and put up big numbers on a poor Seahawks defense. PREDICTION – OVER 38 POINTS
