Now, White has dialed in on Packers vs. Seahawks in the divisional round of the NFL Playoffs 2020 and released another confident against-the-spread pick. You can head to SportsLine to see it. Here are the NFL lines and trends for Seahawks vs. Packers:
White knows that Za’Darius Smith has been a pass-rushing demon this season. The 6-foot-4, 272-pound edge rusher led the NFL in total pressures, pressure rate and quarterback knockdowns. In addition, his 13.5 sacks are tied for fifth most in team history and are the most by a Packer since 2010.
White also has taken into account that the Packers are playing arguably their best ball of the season. The team has won five straight games, including a convincing 23-10 win at Minnesota in a key NFC North matchup in Week 16. The average score over the last five games has been 24-14.
How to Watch Packers vs. Seahawks
Opponents have had success running the ball against Green Bay this season. The Packers allowed 120.1 rushing yards per game during the regular season, which was the 10th most in the league. Even the Los Angeles Chargers, who had the fifth-worst rushing offense in the NFL, ran for 159 yards and two touchdowns against Green Bay. That bodes well for a Seattle offense that ranked fourth in the league in rushing, averaging 137.5 yards per game.
In addition, Seahawks defensive back Bradley McDougald is coming off the best game of his career. In the wild card victory over Philadelphia, the 29-year-old safety led the team with 11 tackles, including two for loss and a sack of Carson Wentz. He also was responsible for covering tight end Zach Ertz, who had just two catches for 44 yards, neither of which came against McDougald.
White has analyzed this matchup and while we can tell you he’s leaning under, he has discovered a crucial x-factor that makes one side of the spread a must-back. He’s sharing it only at SportsLine.
