The Philadelphia Eagles can retake first place in the NFC East standings when they host the Seattle Seahawks in a pivotal Monday Night Football matchup at Lincoln Financial Field. The Eagles (3-6-1) dropped into second place in the division behind Washington (4-7) with the Football Team’s win over Dallas on Thanksgiving Day. Only one game separates division-leading Washington and the last-place Cowboys (3-8) in the NFC East. Meanwhile, the Seahawks (7-3) entered the week tied with the Rams atop the highly competitive NFC West.
Kickoff is set for 8:15 p.m. ET. Seattle is a 6.5-point favorite in the latest Seahawks vs. Eagles odds from William Hill Sportsbook, while the over-under for total points scored is 49.

Now, Tierney has locked in on Seahawks vs. Eagles from every angle and released a confident against-the-spread pick. You can visit SportsLine now to see it. Here are several NFL betting lines from William Hill and trends for Eagles vs. Seahawks:
Seahawks vs. Eagles spread: Seattle -6.5 Seahawks vs. Eagles Over-Under: 49Seahawks vs. Eagles moneyline: Seattle -280, Philadelphia +240SEA: QB Russell Wilson leads the NFL in touchdown passes (30) PHI: Defense ranks second in the league in sacks (34) Why the Seahawks can cover
Seattle is strong in primetime games. Since Pete Carroll took over as coach in 2010, the Seahawks are 32-8-1 under the lights, outscoring opponents 1,085-716. They also are 10-2 on Monday Night Football over that time.
In addition, Seattle has dominated the series against Philadelphia recently. The Seahawks have won six in a row against the Eagles and eight of the last nine. The last time these teams met, in last year’s wild card matchup in Philadelphia, Seattle won 17-9.
Why the Eagles can cover
Philadelphia faces a Seattle offense that has been susceptible to the pass rush. Last week, quarterback Russell Wilson was sacked three times. That pushed the Seahawks’ sacks allowed total on the season to 33; only three teams have given up more. That bodes well for an Eagles defense that has 34 sacks this season, third behind Pittsburgh (38) and Washington (36).
In addition, Miles Sanders has been effective when given the chance. The second-year running back is averaging 5.7 yards per carry, which ranks third in the league behind only Kyler Murray and Nick Chubb. Sanders also is averaging 83.6 rushing yards per game and has run for three touchdowns.
