Seattle Seahawks (3-2 SU, 2-3 ATS, 2-3 O/U) vs. New York Giants (1-5 SU, 3-3 ATS, 3-3 O/U)

NFL: Sunday, October 22, 2017 at 4:25 p.m. EST

The Line: Seattle Seahawks -5.5. Total: 38.5.

The Seattle Seahawks will be looking to win their third game in a row when they visit the New York Giants at MetLife Stadium on Sunday afternoon. Seattle defeated Indianapolis and the Rams prior to its Week 6 bye. The Giants had been 0-5 until they upset Denver this past weekend.

No Joeckel

Seattle left guard Luke Joeckel underwent an arthroscopic procedure on his knee and is likely to miss this week’s game against New York. The Seahawks are coming off a bye week, but it probably did not do enough to heal Joeckel in time to avoid missing any action. The veteran signed a one-year deal this past offseason and he did not miss a single snap in Seattle’s first five games during this 2017 campaign. But he has been dealing with lingering effects of an ACL, MCL, and meniscus injury suffered last October–which cut short his final season with the Jaguars, who drafted him No. 2 overall in 2013. Mark Glowinski, a fourth-round selection in the 2015 NFL Draft, is a likely candidate to fill in for Joeckel. Glowinski started all 16 games at left guard last season for the Seahawks.

“I think that’s going to be hard to count on that,” head coach Pete Carroll said of Joeckel possibly suiting up for Week 7. That’s probably too much to count on…. We brought him back very carefully, and there was something that was kind of hanging in there that was irritating him for some time. And we tried to wait it out and see what it was, and we have waited as long as we can wait and he’s been a stud about it. Now it’s time to get it cleaned up, and hopefully it’ll be really smooth for him and the docs will get in there and get him cleaned out, and away we go.”

Rodgers-Cromartie reinstated

Giants’ cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie has been reinstated after being suspended last week for a violation of team rules. That is according to Rodgers-Cromartie, himself. The veteran threw his helmet and walked off the field during an Oct. 8 loss to the Chargers and he also stormed out of a team meeting last Wednesday. Thus he was suspended indefinitely, but “indefinitely” appears to have turned out to be just one game.

And Rodgers-Cromartie’s absence did not hut, as New York pulled off a surprising 23-10 upset of Denver last Sunday night. Even without DRC, the Giants’ defense dominated en route to a big road win–the Giants’ first win of any kind this season, in fact. Jason Pierre-Paul had three f of his team’s four sacks and the visitors also had two interceptions in addition to a crucial goal-line stand.

NFL Trends:

The Seattle Seahawks are:

  • 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games on fieldturf
  • 7-1-1 ATS in their last nine Week 7 games
  • 5-2 ATS in their last seven October games

The New York Giants are:

  • 1-4 ATS in their last five games following a win
  • 1-4 ATS in their last five games after allowing more than 250 passing yards in their previous game
  • 1-3-1 ATS in their last five home games against Seattle

New York won last week despite compiling a grand total of 266 yards of offense. The home team will have to generate more this time around, because the Seahawks’ offense has impressive of late and will likely to continue to put up plenty of points. The ‘Hawks combined for 73 points in recent contests against the Colts and Titans. Seattle is 7-3 ATS in its last 10 on fieldturf, 7-1-1 ATS in their last nine Week 7 contests, and 5-2 ATS in their last seven in October. The Giants are 1-4 ATS in their last five following a win, 1-4 ATS in their last five after allowing more than 250 passing yards in their previous outing, and 1-3-1 ATS in their last five at home against the Seahawks. Count on those trends continuing.

Pick: Seattle Seahawks -5.5

Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson threw three interceptions in the first two games of the year. He has not been victimized since. In the last four contests, Wilson also has five touchdown passes. He passed for 373 yards against Tennessee and has rushed for at least 34 yards in three different games this season. The over is 13-5 in the Seahawks’ last 18 following a bye, 5-0 in their last five after allowing less than 15 points in their previous outing, and 5-1 in their last six after rushing for less than 90 yards in their previous outing. It is also 4-1 in the Giants’ last five at home against opponents with winning road records and 6-2 in their last eight after allowing less than 15 points in their previous outing. Additionally, the over is 5-1 in the last six meetings between the two teams. Look for this one to go over the total.

Pick: Over 38.5
