Official opening lines for the first week of NFL games are out, and they show the Seahawks favored by three Sunday at Carolina.
There’s also an over-under of 45.5, which read literally projects to a 24-21 Seattle win Sunday.
The Seahawks will take that, I think.
The Seahawks were tied for the best record against the spread in the NFL last season, with an 11-5 mark that matched their straight-up record.
Seattle is on a nice little roll against the spread, having won five in a row (and obviously all four exhibition games) and six of the last seven dating to 2012.
Carolina was 9-7 against the spread last season and has won four of its last five.
