Last week, the Seattle Seahawks were on a bye, so it’s easy to forget how dominant they were when they beat the Giants 24-3 on Monday Night Football. Now, this week, the 3-1 Seahawks have the 2-3 Cincinnati Bengals on the schedule, and BetSided NFL betting expert Iain MacMillan thinks the Seahawks can stay hot. 

Each week, MacMillan picks every game of the NFL schedule in his “Road to 272” and this week he’s taking the Seahawks to upset the Bengals on the road in Cincinnati.

Betting expert for Seahawks in Week 6

It looked like the Bengals turned everything around against the Cardinals last week in their 34-20 win. Ja’Marr Chase had a dominant performance and Joe Burrow looked like himself, but BetSided NFL betting expert Iain MacMillan isn’t buying it. 

MacMillan wrote, “I'm still selling the Cincinnati Bengals. The Cardinals averaged 5.2 yards per play last week against them while the Bengals averaged just 4.8. Thankfully for Cincinnati fans, The Bengals won the turnover battle and Joe Burrow made the big throws when he needed to.”

The Bengals will need to do a lot more to prove that they’re a contender, but MacMillan might be sold on Seattle. 

“With that being said, that's not going to be enough to convince me to bet on this team in Week 5, especially as the betting favorite. They're still 31st in the league in Net Yards per Play at -1.4, while the Seahawks are 10th at +0.3. Seattle also outranks them in Rush EPA/Play, Dropback EPA/play, and opponent Rush EPA/play.”

Take the Seahawks to win outright in Week 6 as a road underdog in Cincinnati.
