Lions vs. Seahawks odds, line: 2022 NFL picks, Week 4 predictions from proven computer model


Jared Goff and the Detroit Lions (1-2) are set to play host to Geno Smith and the Seattle Seahawks (1-2) at 1 p.m. ET on Sunday at Ford Field. The Lions lost a 28-24 heartbreaker to the Minnesota Vikings last week, while the Seahawks are coming off a 27-23 home loss to the Atlanta Falcons. Detroit will be extremely short-handed offensively with its top two playmakers, running back D’Andre Swift (shoulder) and wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown (ankle), both ruled out for this matchup. The Lions are 3-0, while the Seahawks are 1-2 against the spread in 2022.

Detroit is favored by 3.5 points in the latest Lions vs. Seahawks odds from Caesars Sportsbook, and the over/under is set at 48. Before making any Seahawks vs. Lions picks, you need to see the NFL predictions and betting advice from the red-hot simulation model at SportsLine.

What you need to know about the Lions

It was all tied up 14-14 at halftime, but the Lions fell short in the second half when they met the Minnesota Vikings this past Sunday. Detroit was within striking distance but couldn’t close the gap as it fell 28-24 to Minnesota. Detroit’s defeat came about despite a quality game from RB Jamaal Williams, who punched in two rushing touchdowns.

Williams will play an integral role in the Lions offense this week with Swift and St. Brown both sidelined. The Detroit offense has been prolific in 2022, averaging 31.7 points and 419.7 total yards per game with 170.3 of those yards coming on the ground. A major reason for Detroit’s offensive success has been the play of its offensive line, which is arguably the best unit in the NFL. Rookie defensive end Aidan Hutchinson has been as good as advertised, emerging as the front-runner to win NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year.

What you need to know about the Seahawks

Meanwhile, Seattle was within a late touchdown of stealing the win, but ultimately took a loss against the Atlanta Falcons 27-23. No one had a standout game offensively for the Seahawks, but they got scores from WR DK Metcalf and TE Will Dissly. Smith ended up with a passer rating of 145.2.

The Seahawks have had major issues defending the run in 2022, allowing 157 yards per game on the ground — the third worst figure in the NFL. Likewise, Seattle has had some issues establishing its ground game on the offensive side of the ball, averaging a paltry 74.7 rushing yards per game (fourth worst in the league). For the Seahawks to pull off a road win over Detroit in Week 4, they will need to reverse these trends.
