Seahawks vs Vikings Prediction & NFL Odds for Week 3
- Battle of high-powered offenses ends well over the projected total
- Seahawks win the game
- Seattle’s defense makes the difference
Both the Seahawks and Vikings are coming off of Week 2 losses. Seattle blew a 14 point lead and lost in overtime to the Tennessee Titans evening up their overall record at one apiece. The Vikings probably should have won their game, but a missed field goal from 37 yards on the final play of the game saw them fall to 0-2.

Seahawks vs Vikings Prediction: Spread
Despite being 0-2, the Vikings are better than their record indicates. As aforementioned, they should realistically be 1-1 and the offense has been clicking on all cylinders.
Their issue is defense, which limits how good they can be this season. But this team is more than a bottom-dweller and should be able to pull off some upsets.
Seattle is a more balanced organization in 2021. Their defense is not bad, while the offense is also solid. They could easily be 2-0 had the defense held strong in Week 2.
Russell Wilson has been productive yet again and Chris Carson has been a strong answer at halfback for the Seahawks. Tyler Lockett and D.K. Metcalf continue to be stars at the wide receiver position. With those guys leading the offense, the Seattle defense should do just enough to get the win on the road.

Seahawks vs Vikings Prediction: MoneyLine
With two strong offenses going up against one another, this figures to be a shootout. But the difference comes on defense where Seattle has the ability to make stops and Minnesota has let opposing offenses into the end zone far too often. The Vikings have been an alright run-stopping team, but their secondary has been consistently burned through the air.

The predicted moneyline seems accurate so we will stick with it.

Seahawks vs Vikings Prediction: Total
The word “shootout” is going to be thrown around a lot in this one. Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins has been effective this season, and Dalvin Cook is one of the best running backs in all of football. Not many foresaw the Vikings having an excellent start to the season offensively, but that has exactly been the case.
The Seahawks will also put up their share of points. Barring some unforeseen offensive collapse on either side, it seems safe to take the over on the originally predicted total in this one.
- Free Prediction: 62
The Vikings need their secondary to step up otherwise Russell Wilson and company will have a field day. While Kirk Cousins should continue to play well, all eyes will turn to Dalvin Cook in Week 3. Cook was looking sharp last week before suffering a minor ankle sprain and as long as the injury does not linger, he will produce big numbers for the Vikings run game.
- Free Prediction: Russel Wilson throws for over 300 yards
- Free Prediction: Dalvin Cook rushes for over 110 yards
