The Seattle Seahawks travel to Philadelphia to face the Eagles in Week 12 as 1.5-point road underdogs, according to FanDuel Sportsbook. If their recent performance is any indication, the Seahawks have a strong chance to cover that margin, as they are 9-0 against the spread (ATS) in their last nine games as road dogs.

The Seahawks most recently won as road dogs in Week 10, when they defeated the San Francisco 49ers in overtime, 27-24. Seattle was actually +6.5 heading into that game, but managed to sack Jimmy Garoppolo five times and hold the 49ers to 87 rushing yards in the thrilling victory.

In addition to their success as road dogs, the Seahawks have also been able to buck the trend of west coast teams struggling on the east coast. They are 5-0 straight up in their five games switching coasts, including wins this season over the Atlanta Falcons, Cleveland Browns and Pittsburgh Steelers.

Awaiting the Seahawks this week is an Eagles team that has been mediocre at home this season, with a 3-2 mark. The Eagles home wins have come against the Washington Redskins, New York Jets and Chicago Bears, who are a combined 8-22 on the season. Their two home losses have come against the Detroit Lions and New England Patriots.
