Free Picks: Hot Seahawks go against dynamic Cowboys

Riding high after a thrilling victory over the Patriots in Week 2, the Seahawks will try to stay hot against the volatile Dallas Cowboys. The Seahawks have scored a combined 73 points through the first two games of the season, while the Cowboys have scored 57, including a 40 point comeback victory last week against the Atlanta Falcons. This is one of the best games scheduled for Week 3 as both teams are high-octane and dynamic.

Best QB in the NFL

It’s not uncommon to bet on the teams with the better quarterbacks when betting on NFL games. This seems like as good a time as any to just admit it: Russell Wilson is the best quarterback in the league. Period. Over the first two games of the season, Wilson is completing a remarkable 82.5% of his passes, and has thrown for 9 touchdowns and just one interception. These are MVP type numbers.

Both teams feature elite players and the Cowboys’ Dak Prescott is no slouch at quarterback either, in last week’s game against Atlanta, he threw for 450 yards while completing 34/47 pass attempts. He did rush in three touchdowns, but with this throwing stat line, it’s remarkable that neither Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup, or rookie CeeDee Lamb, had a touchdown.

The Seahawks have also been lucky to not have faced a premier rusher through the first two games of the season, but will have to endure one this weekend when they face Ezekiel Elliott, who will have his way with a subpar defensive line that has allowed 238 rushing yards and 4.8 yards per rush.

888sport has Seattle favoured by -4.5, which may be a little too rich for some people’s liking, as the probability for this game to be a shootout is sky high and the final score may come down to a field goal from Greg “The Leg” Zuerlein or Jason Myers. On the other hand, Seattle has covered the spread in 3 of their last 3 meetings against Dallas.
