Seahawks vs Texans Predictions Week 14 | NFL Pick of the Day

The 4-8 Seattle Seahawks finally snapped their three-game losing streak with a big win over the San Francisco 49ers in Week 13. Russell Wilson didn’t make many big plays (6.2 yards per attempt), but he was efficient in completing a season-high 81.1% of his pass attempts.

The Houston Texans, on the other hand, fell to 2-10 after getting shut out for the second time this season, managing just 141 yards of total offense against the Indianapolis Colts. Houston benched quarterback Tyrod Taylor during the 31-0 drubbing, which means Davis Mills is in line to get the start against Seattle.

Can Wilson and the Seahawks build on last week’s victory? Or will they fall back to their underachieving ways in this trap game?

Let’s dive into our Seahawks vs Texans predictions to see why Seattle has the edge in this NFL Week 14 matchup.

Please note that all NFL Week 14 odds and lines are current as of 2 PM ET on Friday, December 10.

Seahawks vs Texans Prediction

The Texans could not get anything going on offense last week, especially through the air. Taylor and Mills combined for a season-low 57 passing yards, resulting in Houston’s sixth game this season with fewer than 10 points. Their offense has been a mess all year and is averaging an NFL-worst 13.7 points per game.

Now they’ll return home to face a Seahawks defense that’s been surprisingly solid this season, yielding the sixth-fewest points per game in the NFL at 20.8. Seattle’s unit has been especially stingy as of late, permitting just 16.7 points per game over their last six.

Look for Houston’s offense to sputter again, especially if Mills starts under center. He’s been one of the worst quarterbacks in the NFL this year with a 7:8 TD/INT ratio and is only averaging 6.3 yards per attempt. Not surprisingly, the Texans have lost all six of his starts this season and have averaged just 10.2 points per game in those contests.

Taylor’s had a couple of decent games but hasn’t been much better, notching just two touchdowns against five interceptions over his last four outings. Neither he nor Mills can hold a candle to Wilson, even if Russ still isn’t 100 percent.

Seattle seemed rejuvenated against San Francisco last week and should have no problem taking care of an inferior opponent here. With their playoff hopes still alive, look for the Seahawks to come out with another strong effort.

Seahawks vs Texans Best Bets

Best Bet: Seahawks -8.5 (-110) at Caesars

Wager: 2 Units

It’s always a bit uncomfortable to lay more than a touchdown with the road team, especially one with a 4-8 record. However, this is a case where the team in question is much better than their record. Remember, Seattle had to deal with three Geno Smith starts and several more where Wilson clearly wasn’t himself.

The Seahawks are a desperate team that is still fighting for a playoff spot. Despite their long odds of accomplishing this, you can bet that Wilson will have a strong finish to the season.

Houston is free-falling and merely playing out the string at this point. Look for Seattle to win by double-digits here in our NFL bet of the day.

Best Bet: Under 40.5 Total Points (-110) at Caesars

Wager: 2 Units

This game has one of the lowest totals on our NFL gameday odds, but I still like the Under because of how abysmal Houston’s passing game is. Seattle’s defense might be among the most underrated in football, so they should be able to shut down the Texans.

Seattle will likely need to score at least 30 points for the Over to hit, which they’ve only done twice in their last 10 games. Past trends for both teams also support the Under, which is 10-2 in Seahawks games and 8-4 in Texans games.

Expect a low-scoring game between Seattle’s strong defense and Houston’s pitiful offense.
