Meanwhile, the Saints narrowly missed a field goal at the end of regulation in a 28-25 loss to the Minnesota Vikings in London.

Seahawks vs Saints Prediction & Pick
This game features two teams heading in opposite directions right now. Seattle showed a lot of promise in Week 4. Not only did Penny ball out, but quarterback Geno Smith also impressed with 320 passing yards and 3 total touchdowns. Head coach Pete Carroll is letting the veteran take the lead.
New Orleans, on the other hand, is falling apart. While Andy Dalton looked serviceable on Sunday, he was clearly lacking any help outside of rookie wideout Chris Olave (who's also banged up). The Saints have lost six of their last seven home games and now face a Seahawks squad with far more momentum. An upset is brewing.
Final Score Prediction: Seahawks: 24 | Saints: 20

Seahawks vs Saints Best Bet
All NFL betting lines, odds and prop bets are available on FanDuel Sportsbook.
Backing the Seahawks on the moneyline (+194) does come with a ton of risk, so backing them on the spread is a great alternative option. Seattle is 6-3 against the spread (ATS) in its last nine games as an underdog and has the offensive talent to overwhelm a New Orleans secondary that just got lit up in Week 4.
The Saints gave up a combined 219 yards on 18 receptions to wide receivers Justin Jefferson and Adam Thielen, so look for Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf to have no trouble getting open on Sunday. New Orleans has only covered the spread once this year, so this will not be a blowout.
Bet: Seattle Seahawks +5.5 (-118)
