Before making any Seahawks vs. Vikings picks, you NEED to check out the NFL predictions from the SportsLine Projection Model..

The model, which simulates every NFL game 10,000 times, is up almost $7,800 for $100 players on top-rated NFL picks since its inception six-plus years ago. It went a sizzling 24-14 on top-rated NFL picks last season, returning more than $800. The model also enters Week 3 of the 2021 season on an incredible 122-81 run on top-rated NFL picks that dates back to the 2017 season.

The model also ranked in the top 10 on NFLPickWatch four of the past five years on straight-up NFL picks and beat more than 94 percent of CBS Sports Football Pick'em players four times during that span. Anyone who has followed it is WAY UP.

The model knows that the Seahawks have a strong offense. Russell Wilson leads the NFL in passer rating (146.9) and is near the top of the league in completion rate (74.1 percent) and passing touchdowns (six). Seattle also has top-tier skill players, with Chris Carson anchoring the backfield and the duo of Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf on the outside. Lockett is currently No. 2 in the NFL in receiving yards (278), while Metcalf is a threat to break out at any moment.

The model also knows that Minnesota's offense has performed well to this point. Dalvin Cook (questionable, ankle) is a top-six player in both rushing yards (192) and yards from scrimmage (252), with Adam Thielen sitting as a top-10 receiver in both receptions (15) and touchdowns (three). Justin Jefferson is coming off a 1,400-yard receiving as a rookie in 2020, and Kirk Cousins is completing more than 70 percent of his passes for nearly 300 yards per game.

Now, it has set its sights on Seahawks vs. Vikings. We can tell you the model is leaning Under the total, and it also says one side of the spread hits in well over 50 percent of simulations! You ABSOLUTELY need to see it before locking in any NFL picks.
