This Thursday night’s featured matchup on NFL Network is an NFC clash between the Green Bay Packers and the Seattle Seahawks out on the West Coast. Game time from Century Link Field is slated for 8:20 p.m.
Green Bay at Seattle Game Overview
The Packers hammered out a much-needed 31-12 home victory against Miami on Sunday as 12.5-point favorites. They improved to an even 4-4-1 straight-up with a 4-5 record against the spread. They head on the road this Thursday night at 0-4 SU and 1-3 ATS in their first four road games this season. The total stayed UNDER 48.5 points in Sunday's win against the Dolphins, and it has stayed UNDER in Green Bay's last three games.
Aaron Rodgers completed an efficient 19-of-28 passing attempts for 199 yards and two scores on Sunday afternoon. Davante Adams caught both touchdowns as part of his team-high 57 receiving yards on the day. The big story in this game was Aaron Jones running the ball. He gained a total of 145 yards rushing with a pair of touchdowns on 15 carries. This added dimension was a welcomed site on an offense that is averaging 115.6 rushing yards per game.
Seattle was able to keep things closer than the 9.5-point spread as a road underdog against the NFC West rival Los Angeles Rams. In the end, the Seahawks still came up short in a 36-31 loss that pretty much handed the division title to the one-loss Rams. With the loss, Seattle dropped to 4-5 SU. With the cover, it is 5-3-1 ATS overall. The total went OVER 51 points in Sunday’s game after staying UNDER in six of the Seahawks’ previous seven games.
With 273 rushing yards on 34 carries, Seattle turned in one of its best performances of the season in the losing cause to the Rams. Rashaad Penny gained 108 yards on 12 rushing attempts, and Russell Wilson added 92 more yards running the ball to his 176 yards passing. He threw for three touchdowns against zero interceptions on Sunday while getting taken to the turf four times for a loss of 35 yards. The Seahawks' defense is still ranked ninth in the league in points allowed (21.3) despite giving up a combined 61 points in the last two games.

Green Bay at Seattle Prediction 11/15/2018
Each of these teams desperately needs a win on Thursday night to keep any outside hope of a postseason berth alive. I would give the overall advantage to Seattle playing this game at home, but it could be a three-point game either way.
Given how the Seahawks were able to move the ball against the Rams along with some softer play from their defense than expected, my ‘best bet’ pick for Thursday’s matchup is the OVER on the current total line.
