Broncos Solidly Ahead In Spread
The opening line on this game was the same as the current line. Denver was a 6.5-point road favorite. That might seem like a lot of points, but it doesn’t seem to be concerning at all to public bettors. The Broncos are pulling 91% of spread bets in the public betting splits, as well as 65% of handle.
Both of these teams were 7-10 last season. Denver was 8-9 against the spread in 2021. The Broncos were 3-5 ATS on the road. Seattle went 9-8 ATS overall and 4-4 as a home team.

Road teams are 7-8 ATS so far during Week 1. However, the revenge tour isn’t proving all that successful.
Quarterbacks facing their old team are 0-2 ATS. Baker Mayfield and the Carolina Panthers fell 26-24 to the Cleveland Browns in a game that was listed as pick’em. Joe Flacco and the New York Jets were getting 6.5 points from the Baltimore Ravens, and it still wasn’t enough. Baltimore whipped the Jets 24-9.
Public Betting All Over the Under in Broncos vs Seahawks
Based on last season, Wilson’s old team’s defense could be playing right into his strength as he meets them with his new team. Last season, Seattle was the second-worst NFL team in terms of passing yards allowed. The Seahawks’ defense was giving up 280.4 yards per game through the air.
Russell Wilson returns to Seattle tonight.

That being the case, the over on Wilson’s passing yards might be a worthy play in the Broncos vs Seahawks player props.
The total has grown a couple of points since the opening line was posted, but it’s still fairly small. It started at 42.5 points at the beginning of the week and today is sitting at 44 points.
In the NFL public betting trends, the over is getting the action. That Broncos vs Seahawks pick is garnering 69% of handle and 56% of bets.
Moneyline Money Also All Over Broncos
As much as public-spread players are infatuated with the Broncos, moneyline bettors are absolutely in love with Denver. The Broncos are getting 80% of handle and 94% of bets at -275.
Denver opened as -255 favorites. The Seahawks were originally +210 underdogs. Seattle’s line has since grown to +230.

Last season, the Seahawks were 1-2 straight up as a home underdog. It was the first time since 2019 that the Seahawks and their rabid fanbase, known as the 12th player, found themselves as home underdogs. It’s only the 10th time it’s happened over the past decade. In the last nine games, the Seahawks are 3-6 SU as an underdog at home.
