The final NFL game of the week could be a low-scoring affair, with 'unders' an appealing bet.
Buffalo Bills at Seattle Seahawks – Tuesday 00:30, Sky Sports 1
Monday night football in the NFL goes to Seattle this week as the Seahawks welcome the Buffalo Bills to the state of Washington. Last week the Seahawks lost in New Orleans, scoring a miserly 13 points against what is one of the worst defences in the NFL. The Bills were perhaps a victim of their own success as they got destroyed by the New England Patriots 41-25 last Sunday just four weeks after they had shut out the Pats in New England when they won 16-0.
The big news for the Bills this week was wide receiver Percy Harvin coming out of retirement to re-sign with the team he only played five games for last year before injury, but everyone involved must think he can give a boost to Buffalo.
The Seahawks offensive game is struggling; quarterback Russell Wilson hasn’t thrown a touchdown in three weeks, while an ankle injury is preventing him from his usual elusive running of the ball. These problems mean that Seattle’s usually stellar defence is out on the field much more than they would prefer and it remains to be seen if they can keep games close in this situation. This game certainly has a low-scoring feel about it, making the 43.5 total points line look too high.
