The bolts open on the road in a monsoon where rivers couldnt hear himself think and lose - they then beat the Jags by 20+ at home.
The Jags are much better than hawks - and the bolts are much better than broncos - so why then just because the seahawks play at home people think they can cover +5.5.
The Bolts roll and roll big time - if Kyle Orton can put up 30+ against the hawks D I like rivers putting up 30+ without a running game
Bolts to the bank IMO
While I don't think the Seahawks are that good, I also don't think they're that bad. You mention that the Seahawks had short fields against the 49ers but they also gave away at least two scores against Denver with two Hasselback INTs inside the Denver 10 last week. He doesn't turn the ball over and the game is a lot closer.
And how do you know it won't be a monsoon in Seattle on Sunday and it's going to be as loud if not louder than KC. Seattle is better than KC and Jacksonville.
SD is the better team but getting 5.5 points at home for the Hawks is quite a bit in an early season matchup against the early struggles of SD in the past.
I'm taking Hawks on this because this looks extremely similar to the opening week game against KC. Same crowd noise, could be similar weather, and home dog against frustrated Rivers and company.
