Commanders vs Seahawks Predictions & Best Bets

Last Updated: Nov 8, 2023

The NFC playoff picture is slowly taking form, and this matchup between the Washington Commanders and Seattle Seahawks could have massive implications come January.

The Commanders are 7-1 against the Seahawks in Seattle during the regular season, with the only loss coming in 1998.

See where the two sides are currently ranked on the latest NFL Power Rankings heading into Week 10.

Let’s dive into the odds and best bets for this NFC showdown.

Commanders vs Seahawks Odds

NFL odds used for this Washington vs Seattle preview were found at Caesars Sportsbook and are current as of Nov. 7 at 2 p.m.ET.

  • Moneyline: Seahawks (-267) • Commanders (+215)
  • Spread: Seahawks -6 (-115) • Commanders +6 (-105)
  • Total Points: Over 46 (-110) • Under 46 (-110)
  • Implied Score: Seahawks 26, Commanders 20

Commanders vs Seahawks Predictions

Score Pick: Seahawks 27, Commanders 24

This will be a close game and might come down to the last possession of the game. The Commanders defense has been poor all season, as they’ve given up the third most points per game (27.2) in the league.

After a shocking 30-13 loss at home in Week 1, the Seahawks have bounced back and won their last four home contests. Seattle has always been a tough place for road teams to play, but the Commanders, as mentioned above, have had success.

The biggest issue the Commanders have had this season is protecting second-year QB Sam Howell. Washington gives up the second-most sacks per game on the season at 4.9.

Despite the lack of protection, Howell has thrown for 2,471 yards on the season, which is second most in the NFL.

The Seahawks average 3.4 sacks per game on defense, tied for fourth-best in the league this season. If their pass rush can get to Howell, I expect the Seahawks to win this game comfortably.

The Commanders defense also allows 252.7 passing yards per game, which is the perfect opportunity for a Geno Smith bounce-back game.

Commanders vs Seahawks Best Bets & Props

Over 46 (-110)

Caesars Sportsbook • WAGER: 1 unit

The under has hit in 55.6% of Commanders’ games and 62.5% of Seahawks’ games this season, but these are two dynamic passing attacks.

Howell can put up big numbers for the Commanders, and the Seahawks passing attack can take advantage of this poor Commander’s defense. Washington just traded away two of their best pass rushers in Chase Young and Montez Sweat as well, so Geno will have time to dissect this secondary.

This is my NFL bet of the day.

Commanders +6 (-105)

Caesars Sportsbook • WAGER: 1 unit

Washington is 4-4-1 against the spread this season but are 4-1 against the spread on the road. The Commanders have two outright victories on the road as underdogs and played a close contest against the Eagles in Philadelphia.

Much of the Commanders success on the road has been because of Howell, and I expect him to keep this a close game for Washington.

Seahawks Over 26.5 (-105)

Caesars Sportsbook • WAGER: 0.5 units

The Commanders secondary is one of the worst in the NFL, and the Seahawks have a plethora of dangerous pass catchers. DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett should have a field day in this contest, and Geno Smith should find the form he had for most of last season.

Kenneth Walker will also benefit from a working passing game, as it will open up lanes in the middle of the field for him to attack.

Commanders vs Seahawks Same Game Parlay

Commanders vs Seahawks SGP (+178)

Caesars Sportsbook • WAGER: 0.75 units

  • Commanders +10 (-205)
  • Alt Total Over 41.5 (-189)
  • Total Touchdowns Over 5 (-125)

I think the Commanders keep this a close game, so I started the same game parlay with an alternate spread for the visitors.

With how poor the Commanders defense has been and the ability for their passing attack to put up big numbers, I believe this will be a high-scoring game. The last two legs of the same game parlay go hand in hand.

I expect a high-scoring game, which means plenty of touchdowns, and that is why I added the over five touchdowns to the same game parlay.
