The Seattle Seahawks opens the 2022 regular season at home and will host their former quarterback Russell Wilson and the Denver Broncos on Monday Night. These teams haven't faced each other since 2018 season where the Broncos beat the Seahawks 27-24 in Denver.


Denver Broncos

The Broncos had a bad season last year ending with a 7-10 record and 3-5 on the road led by Teddy Bridgewater who's now the backup quarterback for the Dolphins. Denver has struggled to find their new franchise quarterback since Payton Manning and now they acquired Russell Wilson from the Seahawks to try to find success.

Offensively, the team was 13th in rushing offense with 119.1 yards per game and 19th in the league in passing offense with 211.4 yards per game. With 19.7 points per game, Denver's offense ranked 23rd in the league. This year the offense received a big boost after acquiring Russell Wilson who had 3,113 yds, 25 td and 7.8 yds average per play while only 6 interceptions. They had one of the finest running games in the league, headed by Melvin Gordon III and Javonte Williams, who both rushed for over 900 yards. Courtland Sutton had 776 yards. 

Defensively, the team ranked #3 in the NFL allowing an average of 18.9 points per game last season. This is a tough defense that is expected to continue to dominate this season.


Seattle Seahawks

The Seahawks had a disappointing year last season as they ended up with a 7-10 record and 3-5 at home and now they lost their best player and their lead quarterback for a decade in Russell Wilson so now they named their starting quarterback to Geno Smith.

Offensively, the team averaged 21.5 points per game #11 in the NFL and recorded 3,432 passing yards and 2,074 rushing yards last season. Geno Smith was sacked 13 times while completing 65 of 95 passes for 702 yards, five touchdowns, and one interception. His best arm will be DK Metcalf who led the team with 75 receptions for 967 yards and 12 scores a season ago. Tyler Lockett is another strong arm of this team who had over 1,100 yds and 8 tds.  

Defensively, this team had their struggles allowing an average of 21.5 points per game last season. They lost Bobby Wagner to the Rams so the defense will need to make a strong effort this year to hold the opponents.



Denver are 13-5 SU in their last 18 games against Seattle.

Denver are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games on the road.

The total has gone UNDER in 10 of Denver's last 14 games when playing on the road against Seattle.

The total has gone OVER in 4 of Seattle's last 5 games against Denver.

Seattle are 3-6 SU in their last 9 games at home.



It will be interesting to see how Russell Wilson will play against who was his team for over a decade. Wilson will try to end a series of bad seasons for the Broncos and he will have a couple of quality receivers stars and a great rushing options in Williams and Melvin Gordon III so expect them to use this strenght a lot. The Seahawks are a team in rebuild so don't expect much from them this season and they'll be facing one of the best defenses in the league last season. Go with the Broncos to win and cover the spread in Monday Night Football.

PICK: Broncos -6.5 (-110)
