Broncos vs Seahawks odds, picks: points spread, total, player props, directions, Week 1 ‘MNF’ live stream

This is the perfect way to wrap up the first week of the 2022 NFL season. Monday night, new Denver Broncos Quarterback Russell Wilson will return to Seattle to face his former team in Seahawks. The Broncos are currently undergoing the second longest active dry spell in the NFL playoffs, but they expect that to change with a midfield promotion.

Denver leads the all-time series against Seattle 35-21, including the playoffs. The Broncos have also made it 8-2 in the last 10 seasons, while the Seahawks are looking to win their first week in a row game. The last time the Seahawks lost their season opener at home was in 1999. On paper, the Broncos look like the better team, but in an emotional match like this, you never know what could happen.

Below, we’ll break down this match from a gambling perspective and examine line movement and player/plus/underscores to consider. First, here’s how to watch Monday’s game.

injury report

Bronco may not have been before Cowboys Gregory pass was active in his first game as a Bronco, as he is doubtful to play with shoulder and knee issues. However, he was a limited participant in practice throughout the week, which can be considered a positive. Humler and Turner were also limited participants throughout the week. Turner is listed as a novice up front, so he’s definitely someone to watch.

The Seahawks have two important players listed as suspect on Monday night, as rookie Walker tries to come back from his hernia operation, and Lewis is still working on his comeback from the dreaded leg injury he sustained in pre-season. Seattle’s offensive line is a question mark, and Gino Smith would be more comfortable with Lewis in the lineup.

line movement

Latest possibilities:

Denver Broncos -6

The Broncos opened as a 3.5-point candidate on May 12. On July 6, the line went up to DEN -5. On August 21, we saw another big rally up to DEN -6. On Monday, September 5, the streak rose by half a point to DEN -6.5.

Picking: Bronco -6.5. This game is already included in my country Top 5 picks of the week. This is the logic:

“For years I thought the Broncos roster was worth the competition. They haven’t had a good play from the most important position in football since the days of Peyton Manning. With the arrival of Russell Wilson, Denver could be a legitimate team.

“I don’t think the Broncos go out and win by 30 points on Monday night. Wilson and first-year coach Nathaniel Hackett may need a little more time to get to know each other before this attack looks like a consistently well-equipped machine, but I think that streak is way too low. I appreciate Pete Carroll does an excited look for his roster, but I don’t think anyone else is.”

over / under 44

The total opened at 41.5 on May 12. On August 28, it rose to 42. On September 4, it rose again to 43. Last Tuesday, it received another rise to 44.

Choice: Under 44 years old. You can’t exactly rely on the stats from last year since we have different players working on different offenses. I expect Wilson and Broncos to be contenders, but that doesn’t mean they’ll go out and drop over 40 to Seattle. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers Cowboys vs. game was gross. Can we see something like this? This isn’t my best bet, but the lean is to Under.

Landing passes: 1.5 (above -133, below -103)
Traffic yards: 253.5 (above -117, below -117)
Pass attempts: 33.5 (above -123, below -111)
Completion of success: 22.5 (above -115, below -119)
Longest pass completion period: 36.5 (above -157, below +114)
Objections: 0.5 (above +123, below -169)

I like to go forward and hit that Over on touchdown passes. Like I said, I don’t expect to be shot, but I would most likely dare to land twice. I’d stay away from pass attempts and completion props in this case for two reasons: The Broncos are expected to win, and we don’t know exactly what that offense will look like. I’m sure Nathaniel Hackett would want to run through the middle, but at the same time Denver has two talented backs that could be tapped into if things get out of hand early. Wilson’s objection to the extra money is tempting, but I wouldn’t play it. He threw six interceptions in 14 games last year.

Landing passes: 1.5 (above +165, below -234)
Traffic yards: 209.5 (above -115, below -119)
Pass attempts: 30.5 (above -113, below -121)
Completion of success: 18.5 (over -113, under -121)
Longest pass completion period: 36.5 (above -111, below -123)
Objections: 0.5 (above -179, below +129)

I won’t touch Smith’s landing prop. As for his passing count of yards, it’s as if Vegas just took it from his best game last year, throwing for 209 yards against Pittsburgh Steelers. I don’t expect Smith to exceed that number, but if you really want some action in Seattle or if you’re a fan of the Seahawks, start throwing some money at that Over.

Quarterback props – especially with “new” quarterbacks in the new systems – look a bit silly to gamble on in the first week. However, I will say that I like Team Under on Smith’s longest finish at 36.5.

player props

Noah Vant Total Receptions: Over 2.5 (-123). This isn’t just a revenge game for Wilson, it’s a Fant game too. The former Broncos tight end didn’t like his time in Denver very much. He had issues with the offense and how the team used it. He’s kind of a threat on the field, but the Broncos’ previous quarterback problems have taken their toll on his roof. Fant doesn’t exactly have a QB dream scenario in Seattle, but I’d love for him to get three passes on Monday night.

Total Rashad Penny Rush + Reception Yards: Under 80.5 (-110). This number seems a little bloated to me. I love Benny, though I doubt his stamina, but all his big games came late in the year. It’s a weird trend that I try not to put too much stock in, but if you think the Broncos are winning this game, I think that’s a good bet.

Melvin Gordon’s streaming yards: Over 37.5 (-131). I kind of like this number. Everyone is excited about Jafonte Williams – and for good reason – but Gordon hasn’t minced the liver. He topped that number in 12 out of 16 games last year, and if you think the Broncos are winning, that’s all the more reason to bet on this one.
