Seahawks at Eagles Betting Preview: Seahawks (-4.5/-114), Eagles (+4.5/-106)
The Seahawks (7-3) snapped a two-game losing streak with a 28-21 victory against visiting Arizona last week in the Thursday night game. Carlos Hyde came back after missing three games with a hamstring injury, and he ran for a season-high 79 yards and a touchdown. The defense also came up with its biggest performance of the season, limiting the Cardinals to 100 fewer yards than their league-leading average.
Defensive end Carlos Dunlap, acquired from Cincinnati at the trade deadline, has 3.5 sacks in three games to revitalize the Seahawks’ pass rush. He had two sacks against Arizona, including one on the Cardinals’ final offensive play.
The Seahawks expect to get running back Chris Carson (mid-foot sprain), cornerback Shaquill Griffin (hamstring) and center Ethan Pocic (concussion) back this week after all sat out multiple games. Tight end Greg Olson (torn plantar fascia in left foot) is expected to miss the rest of the regular season, while right tackle Brandon Shell (sprained ankle) is questionable.
How far has Carson Wentz fallen? Coach Doug Pederson hesitated during a news conference this week before saying Wentz was his starter amid an outcry in Philadelphia to give second-round pick Jalen Hurts a shot.
The return of tight end Zach Ertz, who has missed the past four games with an ankle injury, should give Wentz a boost. However, the Eagles might be without right tackle Lane Johnson (shoulder), who is questionable after leaving last weekend’s 22-17 loss at Cleveland.
The Eagles ran for 96 yards in the first half last week, including 63 yards from Miles Sanders on 11 attempts, before inexplicably abandoning the ground game after the intermission, when they attempted only six rushes. They’ll need to maintain a semblance of a running attack to keep Wilson and Co. off the field.
Seahawks at Eagles Betting Pick for Week 12
The Seahawks are entering the softest part of their schedule. After facing Philadelphia, they’ll have back-to-back home games against the New York Giants (currently 3-7) and New York Jets (0-10), followed by a trip to Washington (4-7).
The Seahawks are 6-4 against the spread this season while the Eagles are 3-7. The Eagles are 3-0 in prime-time this season but are 0-5 all-time against Wilson, including a playoff defeat last season.

Seahawks at Eagles Best Bet for Week 12
Look for the Seahawks to try to re-establish their running game, which has been hampered by injuries. The teams combined for just 52 points in two meetings in Philadelphia last season, and the Eagles have allowed only 79 points over their past four games.
