KEY FACTS: Russell Wilson makes his Broncos debut – against the team that traded him for four primo draft picks and three players. He is 10-3 on Monday Night Football but just 2-8 ATS in his last 10 primetime matchups. Seattle’s Geno Smith will start his first Week 1 game since 2014.
TRENDING: The line has surged 2.5 points even though Seattle has crushed it (16-7 ATS) as a ‘dog of late. No team hit more Unders last season than the Broncos (12 of 17).
INSIGHTS: The Broncos are wildly popular. See above.
Jay Croucher nailed his Sunday selections – Baker Mayfield to get picked and Bucs-‘Boys to stay under 51 points. Who will be sharper tonight: Jay or Ryan Leaf?
Seahawks +6.5 (-107)
“The low total indicates this will be an ugly game. Geno Smith was quietly competent filling in last year, and Denver’s new coaching staff will experience enough growing pains to keep the final margin close.”
Broncos Team Total Under 26.5 (-115)
“Seattle's defense is nothing special, but the secondary is talented. Both teams will run the ball – and the clock.”
THE BIG NAME
Broncos -6.5 (-107)
“Seattle is a shell of itself, more concerned with getting the crowd to boo Russell than to beat Russell.”
Javonte Williams Over 55.5 Rushing Yards (-115)
“Seattle’s ‘D’ is good on the back end but not necessarily up front. And it looks like Williams will get the majority of carries over Melvin Gordon.”
