Both teams have only played 20 times since the Seahawks entered the league as an expansion franchise in 1976, splitting those 10-10. Since 2011, Seattle has won five of the six meetings, and the Seahawks have also dominated MNF matchups and prime-time games overall. The franchise has a 28-12 record (.700 winning percentage) all-time on Monday night, which leads the NFL. Since 2010, when Pete Carroll became the head coach, the Seahawks are 33-14-1 (.698) in prime time, also best in the league. The Giants made the playoffs last year, but if they lose and start 1-3, they are behind the 8-ball as far as history is concerned. Since 1990, teams that started 1-3 only made the playoffs 14.5% of the time (34 of 235 teams). Teams that started 2-2 advanced to the postseason 37.1% of the time (118 of 318).

Why should you bet on the Seattle Seahawks?
The Seahawks started the 2023 season with a disappointing home loss to the L.A. Rams, but they bounced back by stopping the Detroit Lions and the Carolina Panthers. Against the Panthers, the scoring started slowly, with Carolina ahead by a point at halftime, but then the Seahawks made the score 22-13 at the end of the third quarter and held on for the win, despite committing the only turnover of the game.
Offense is the key for the Seahawks, as they are fourth in the NFL in scoring (29 points per game) but 29th in defense (29.3 points permitted per game). The passing game is 13th in the league; Geno Smith has gone 71 of 103 for 736 yards in three games, with a 4:1 TD:INT ratio. Tailback Kenneth Walker III leads the team with 204 yards on the ground, with four touchdowns. D.K. Metcalf has 15 catches for 234 yards and a touchdown, but he is listed as questionable due to a rib injury. Tyler Lockett has 13 catches for 103 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Ten different Seahawks were held out of practice due to injury concerns, so you’ll want to check the latest injury updates before you lock in your wager.

Why should you put your money on the New York Giants?
The Giants haven’t played since last Thursday, when they got rolled by the San Francisco 49ers on Thursday Night Football. They have sandwiched losses to the Cowboys and 49ers around a comeback win over Arizona. Against the 49ers, they never led and found themselves down, 17-6, at halftime en route to a 30-12 loss.
The Giants lost the statistical battles as well, trailing in offensive yards gained (441-150), first downs (26-10), and time of possession (39:10-20:50). For the league, they rank 28th in passing offense, 24th in rushing offense, and 31st in scoring offense, scoring 14.3 points per game. The defense hasn’t helped much, ranking 30th in points permitted (32.7 points per game). Saquon Barkley is listed as doubtful thanks to a high ankle sprain.

Seahawks vs Giants MNF Final Score and Prediction
Geno Smith has the Seahawks’ offense up and running, and after that disappointing opener, the scoring has been consistent. The defense has some work to do, but if Barkley can’t go for the Giants or is limited in his effectiveness due to his ankle, the Seahawks should be able to load the box and dare Daniel Jones to beat them down the field – something that Jones has rarely managed to do during his NFL career. I predict a final score of Seattle 30, New York 20.
