Seattle Seahawks vs New Orleans Saints

Week 5 at the Superdome sees a visit from Pete Carroll’s Seattle Seahawks, who will be looking to return resurgent after posting the first losing season since 2011 in 2021. The Saints might have been able to boast a winning record last year, but they were still some distance behind divisional winners, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Seahawks vs Saints Highlights

In a tight series, the Saints lead the Seahawks by a single victory, winning 9 of the 17 times these sides have faced off. Since the NFC divisional playoff game in 2014, the Saints have been victorious on all occasions, winning three on the bounce both in New Orleans and Seattle. NFL betting odds are likely to reflect this recent success, especially with the questions around the visitor’s quarterback arrangements.

The Saints will be hoping that any jet lag from their transatlantic trip to London last week has cleared and that they can keep the likes of Jarvis Landry, Alvin Kamara, and Jameis Winston off the IR report. The active status of these key individuals will be pivotal for those looking to bet on NFL games and make a tidy profit through week 5.

The Seahawks find themselves returning from a bottom-of-the-group finish having won the same division only the season before. Adjustment to life without Russell Wilson will take some time, but the familiarity and experience of long-serving head coach Pete Carroll should offer some stability. The team also had some exposure to this scenario last year when Wilson missed three games with a broken finger.

The noise of the Superdome and a stronger roster in the Saints camp suggests that the home team will be covering the spread in this NFL week 5 matchup of the Seahawks vs Saints.
