NFL Champs on opening week are 8-2 SU, 6-3-1 or 6-2-2 ATS depending on the time of the line for the last 10 seasons.
the last two champions have lost, might be the new trend who knows..
but if I have to choose at this moment, I will have to take Seattle at -5.5 even though I hate that team very much. I can see them winning this game by a touchdown but I can also see this being close with Seattle winning and GB cover the spread
Can't deny homefield advantage will be big factor. Much of Seattle's defense is still intact and still an elite unit. their offense has never been about passing, always run first. they have a capable backfield of RB's if Marshawn Lynch starts slipping stat-wise and Percy Harvin will be a big factor as well.
Green Bay has the weapons and defense to give Seattle problems. They can run the ball with Eddie Lacy and the WR corp is still solid. The Packers are one of the few teams that are capable of beating Seattle at home. Like I say if Eddie can't run on Seattle, it's game over.
I'll see how these two teams play in preseason game 3, then wait untill game time to make a pick.
