The cold streak is real. And we need some sort of rebound tonight. Follow this advice at your own risk, because we haven't hit on a bet for like a week and a half.
Marshawn Lynch has been ruled out. Tonight is going to be a Week Four Fantasy Sleeper Thomas Rawls kind of night, with a dash of Still In The League Fred Jackson too. In limited minutes this year, Rawls has run 18 times for 109 yards. He played sparingly at Michigan for three years, and then transferred to Central Michigan and ran for 1100 yards and 10 touchdowns his senior year.
That's about as good a backstory as you could expect for Lynch's replacement, and it seems like people are high on Rawls. He was listed in just about every "Fantasy Sleeper" post this week, and the line hasn't really moved since Lynch's announcement.
Seattle lost on the road to St. Louis (34-31) and Green Bay (27-17), then beat Chicago at home (26-0). Detroit has lost twice on the road (33-28 to San Diego and 26-17 to Minnesota) and once at home (24-12 to Denver).
Factor in that the game is being played in front of Seattle's overrated home crowd, and the line of Seahawks -10 makes sense. I'm going to stay away from betting the spread because it's such a toss up, but there are quite a few player props floating around.
I've had this open as a Draft since about 9:00 this morning. It is now almost 1:00 in the afternoon and Bovada does not have any props posted.
Just in case your dick wasn't already kicked in enough from this weekend.
