SEATTLE SEAHAWKS (1-3) vs NEW YORK GIANTS (3-1)
The Seattle Seahawks have looked decent over the last couple of weeks but now face the prospect of heading out on the road where they have been absolutely brutal the last couple of seasons.

*ATS Matchup Report*
To make matters worse, they play in the Eastern Time zone this week where they have lost nine straight games against a New York Giants team that sits atop the NFC East and is looking as confident as they have in a very long time.
Jackson, Sidney Rice, Doug Baldwin and Mike Williams (assuming he plays) could have some success. But the league’s second worst running game (67.5 yards per game) that will likely be stuck in the mud once again.
It is going to be up to Tavaris and a defense that has allowed 33 points per game to get it done in New York.
I don’t like the prospect!
The New York Giants have won three straight games. They are playing good, uncharacteristically mistake free football and lead the uber-tough NFC East with a 3-1 record. Eli Manning has been lights out as of late passing to Hakeem Nicks, Victor Cruz and an underwhelming Mario Manningham.
The much maligned Giants running game also appears to be rounding into form. Ahmad Bradshaw and Brandon Jacobs are an elite duo and will be a handful for Seattle’s middle-of-the-pack defense.
Perhaps the biggest storyline ahead of Sunday’s game is the return of Osi Umenyiora and Justin Tuck to full strength.
What was New York’s weakness this season (the run defense) is about to get a whole lot better with the return of both.
Prediction: Seattle has had more than their share of issues on the road the last couple of seasons. They are 0-9 in their last nine trips back East and they have been blown out in both games this season on the road. I can’t see that changing against a Giants team that looks as confident as they have for quite some time.
Too many weapons in New York will make for a long afternoon for Hawks fans!
Giants win on Sunday and cover the 10 point spread with a final score of 30-10.
