Week three of the NFL is commonly referred to as the dress rehearsal as teams look to play starters into the third period in order for them to get conditioning to play a full four quarters when the regular season begins in two weeks. The Seattle Seahawks have been going hard in the preseason the past two years and the team has won and covered the point spread in six straight games because head coach Pete Carroll wants to set the winning and positive tone early. With that said we have seen opponents of the Seahawks scale back with their starters minutes because they do not want to risk injury going against Seattle who is playing all out to win. That explains why the Seahawks are a two point favorite on the road to Green Bay. Starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers may see limited minutes and will have to release the football very early to risk from getting hit in a preseason game. Seattle has been impressive as they travel to San Diego in week one and pound the Chargers 31-10 and last week at home facing the Denver Broncos the Seahawks blow out Denver by the score of 40-10 as a -5 point betting favorite. Green Bay has not looked impressive on offense in the preseason as this group of veterans aim for the regular season. The Packers have averaged just 9.5 points a game in their first two preseason games in the 2013 season. A benefit in playing Seattle is their quarterback rotation of Russell Wilson, Brady Quinn and Tarvaris Jackson as there is NFL experience taking every snap for Seattle on offense.
With our NFL preseason pick for Friday we will play on the Seattle Seahawks -2 points against the Green Bay Packers at best sports books.
