As expected, Seahawks are double-digit home underdogs

Apparently, Sunday night’s 16-6 win over the St. Louis Rams wasn’t enough to keep the Vegas bookmakers from listing the Seattle Seahawks as a huge underdog for their upcoming playoff game against the New Orleans Saints.

The wild card weekend Las Vegas point spreads have been released and it came as no surprise to learn that the 7-9 Seahawks would enter the first round as the biggest underdog on the board. The defending champions are currently a 10.5-point favorite for Saturday’s game at Seattle, per ScoresandOdds.com.

However, the Seahawks aren’t the only home team receiving a lack of love from the bookmakers. The Kansas City Chiefs opened as 2.5-point underdogs for Sunday’s game vs. Baltimore.
