NFC Divisional Playoff Picks and Predictions
New Orleans Saints at Seattle Seahawks
The Saints look for double payback when they visit the top-seeded Seahawks on Saturday. Not only did New Orleans lose its only playoff trip to Seattle, 41-36 three seasons ago, but it was clobbered 34-7 at CenturyLink Field on Dec. 2. Seahawks QB Russell Wilson threw 3 TD passes and totaled 357 yards in that win, which was nearly double the 188 total yards the Saints gained that night. New Orleans gained 434 yards, including 185 on the ground, in last week’s road win at Philadelphia, but Seattle allows just 254 total YPG (4.4 per play) at home this season, where it is 7-1 SU (5-3 ATS) and outscores visitors 29.1 to 13.7 PPG.
