Seattle Seahawks vs Minnesota Vikings: Monday Night Football Week 14 Schedule, Odds And Picks.Seattle have the luxury of staying at home another week and will welcome Minnesota at 8:15 p.m. ET on Monday. Seattle will be strutting in after a victory while Minnesota will be stumbling in from a loss.
The 6-5-1 Minnesota Vikings and 7-5 Seattle Seahawks are set to go head-to-head on Monday Night Football to close out Week 14 of the 2018 NFL season. This exciting showdown is rife with potential playoff implications, as both contenders are currently occupying the NFC’s two Wild Card spots. Neither has much of a chance to catch their respective division leader either, with the Vikings well behind the 9-4 Bears in the NFC North and the Seahawks already out of contention in the NFC West after the Rams clinched the divisional crown last week. That leaves them both desperate to hold on to these coveted Wild Card positions, especially since there are a handful of six-win teams—the Panthers, Eagles and Redskins—lurking right behind.
Oddsmakers like Seattle’s chances to secure victory on Monday Night Football, installing the home squad as a three-point favorite. The Seahawks have traditionally been tough to beat at home, but their aura of invincibility has faded a bit in 2018. The team has compiled a pedestrian 3-2 record in games played at CenturyLink Field, with a 3-1-1 against the spread mark. Minnesota hasn’t been very consistent on the road, however, going just 2-3-1 straight-up and 3-3 ATS this season. Seattle is the hotter team right now, having compiled three straight wins heading into Week 14. The franchise has also matched up well with the Vikings in recent years, going 4-0 straight-up and 3-1 against the spread over the last four meetings. Minnesota has struggled mightily against quality opponents during the current campaign, failing to beat or cover against a single team with a record above .500 in four tries, while going 6-1-1 SU and 5-2-1 ATS against sub-.500 foes.
Will the Vikings find a way to buck these trends and get back on track in arguably their most important game of the 2018 NFL season? Or will the Seahawks keep it rolling with a fourth straight victory to move one step closer to locking up a Wild Card berth in the upcoming playoffs?
