Seahawks at Washington Football Team Betting Preview: Seahawks (-5.5/-110), Washington Football Team (+5.5/-110)
The Seahawks (9-4) can clinch a playoff berth with a victory. They’re coming off a 40-3 drubbing of the winless New York Jets in which Russell Wilson threw four touchdown passes and the defense allowed just 185 total yards.
Defensive end Carlos Dunlap (foot) and cornerback Quinton Dunbar (knee) are expected to return from injuries and running back Rashaad Penny might make his season debut after suffering an ACL tear in November of 2019. The biggest question mark is starting right tackle Brandon Shell, who aggravated a sprained ankle last week. A healthy Shell would be welcome against Washington’s stout defensive line.
Washington Football Team
Washington (6-7) has won four games in a row to move atop the NFC East.
Those wins have been led by veteran QB Alex Smith, who missed the second half of last weekend’s 23-15 victory at San Francisco with a strained right calf. If Smith can’t go, Washington would turn to former first-round draft pick Dwayne Haskins, who began the season as the starter but was benched after four games.
Seahawks at Washington Football Team Betting Pick for Week 15
The Seahawks’ offense got back on track last weekend and the defense continues to get healthy and improve.
Washington’s defense ranks fourth in the league and Smith is 4-1 as a starter. The defense will likely keep Washington in the game, so it might come down to Smith’s health. The Seahawks are 7-6 against the spread this season, while Washington is 7-4-2.
