Line Says: Baltimore Ravens by 7.5
Take what I said about the Miami Dolphins—their lack of home field advantage—and flip it for the Seattle Seahawks.
Seattle's a bad team that gets appreciably better at home. Including their playoff win against New Orleans, the Seahawks went 6-3 at home in 2010. So far this year they're 1-2, but one of those losses came to Atlanta by just two points.
Seattle's defense hovers right around the league average in yards allowed and has enough muscle to keep Baltimore close through most the game. Remember last time the Ravens came off an emotional win against the Pittsburgh Steelers? They stunk up the joint in a blowout loss to Tennessee.
This time they'll have to fly cross-country to play in a tough road stadium. Even with Baltimore's distinct talent advantage, I expect this game to be decided by one touchdown or less.
Baltimore still wins, but it stays close.
