The Best Sports Handicapper believes the Seattle Seahawks have “LADY LUCK” on their side after last Sunday’s wildcard miracle win at Minnesota. The Carolina Panthers have the best record in the NFL. Carolina beat Seattle on the road in the regular season. The Playoffs are a different season. The opening betting line has Carolina as a two-point Home Favorite Against The Spread. The Betting Odds Total is 44-points for Sundays game.

The Seattle Seahawks advanced on a missed chip shot field goal by Minnesota kicker Blair Walsh in the wildcard round. Seattle won seven of their last eight to get to the second round of the 2016 NFC playoffs. The organization expects running back Marshawn Lynch to be ready for Carolina. “BEAST MODE” is being his self this week and has limited his interviews with the media. Head Coach Pete Carroll just wants the dynamic Lynch to bolster the running game. Can Seattle survive another plane ride East? Starting quarterback, Russell Wilson is back in the are where he played his first three years of College Football. Wilson was the signal caller at North Carolina State before transferring to Wisconsin. Rookie return specialist Tyler Lockette could be the X-factor Sunday. The Seattle front seven is a stout and pesky bunch. The “LEGION OF DOOM” the Seahawks secondary will have their work cut out, but they are in familiar territory. Cornerback Richard Sherman and the crew will be ready. The key to a Seattle victory is to avoid costly turnovers.

The 2015-16 Carolina Panthers, only loss of the season, came on the road against the Atlanta Falcons. Head Coach Ron Rivera expects his team to go in and be aggressive from the opening kickoff. Starting quarterback Cam Newton is a Player of The Year candidate and can take over a game. Running Back, Jonathan Stewart is a big strong and fast runner who can take the football the distance. Stewart could easily be the difference between the Panther advancing or going home. Tight end Greg Olsen must find ways to penetrate in the short passing game. The Carolina Panther defense has an active group of linebackers. Thomas Davis and Luke Kuechly can make things happen on the football field. Cornerback Josh Norman will probably be matched up with Seattle wide receiver Doug Baldwin.

The Betting Odds Under The Total are 5-0 the last five between the teams in Carolina.

Carolina is 4-0 Against The Spread their last four at home.
