Week 7 of the 2021 NFL season ends Monday night when the struggling Seahawks welcome Alvin Kamara and the Saints. New Orleans have won two of their three road games live (SU) and against the spread (ATS) in six weeks. During that streak, the Saints beat New England and Washington while falling to Carolina. Seattle has lost four of its last five games and things won’t get any easier on Monday when they are forced to play without star quarterback Russell Wilson (finger) for the second week in a row.

Editor’s Note – Dimensions are subject to change
The line has grown slightly since opening in favor of New Orleans (3-2 SU; 3-2 ATS) settling with the Saints as 4.5 point favorites against Seattle (2-4 SU; 3 -3 ATS) at SI Sportsbook. Bettors who bet early expect stronger defensive play than bettors predict, as the total is down two points since opening from 44.5 to 42.5.
After a pass and an impressive 33-22 win over Washington in Week 5, the Saints head to Seattle in search of their third straight road victory at Lumen Field. New Orleans’ passing offense dominated the win over Washington as Jameis Winston threw for 279 yards and four touchdowns.
On the other side of the ball, Seattle put in a valiant effort in Geno Smith’s first NFL start since 2017 as a member of the New York Giants. However, the Seahawks lost 23-20 to Pittsburgh as the road underdogs with 5.5 points.
Seahawks Player Accessory Info
Substitute Chris Carson, injured, substitute Alex Collins led Seattle’s offensive offense, rushing for 101 yards and a touchdown against Pittsburgh.
My projections have Collins, scheduled for his third straight week in return duties, along with wide DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett, being the three players to see significant volume in the Seahawks’ offensive game plan. Collins is a solid bet to surpass his total of 44.5 rushing yards, despite the Saints ranking second in rushing yards allowed per game (79.0). The sixth-year veteran posted his second career 100-yard running effort last week against the Steelers and his double-digit running volume in three straight games led to a projection greater than the total posted by punters. Expect Metcalf and Lockett to test a Saints’ pass defense that ranks 23rd on pass (275.0 yards per game) while allowing just four wide opponents to score this season. New Orleans ranks fourth in the NFL in points allowed at 18.2 points per game.
Saints Player Accessory Info
On the other side of the ball, New Orleans will likely rely on running back Alvin Kamara, who is averaging 96.2 yards per game. The star’s back currently has a combined running and receiving distance projection set at 128.5 at SI Sportsbook. By midweek, that number stood at 124.5 and following strong pressure respected, punters increased the total by four meters. In the last three games, Kamara has totaled 118 yards in New England, 120 against the Giants and 122 in Washington. The Seahawks have already allowed Najee Harris to post 127 total yards in Week 6, Alexander Mattison 171 in Week 4, Derrick Henry 237 in Week 3 and Jonathan Taylor 116 in Week 2. Monday night football is a solid investment. The Seattle defense is allowing the third-most rushing yards per game in the NFL at 140.8, giving credit to a big night on the ground for Kamara in Week 7.
Frankie’s Monday Night Football Game
Despite being at home in front of the 12th man, there’s simply no way to trust Seattle without two of his most important offensive weapons in Wilson and Carson. Since last season’s playoffs, the Seahawks have lost three straight home games to both SU and ATS. Ending this drought won’t be an easy task with Geno Smith, who is 12-19 in his starting career, against Jameis Winston, who has been strong so far this season guiding the Saints’ offense. via a solid 12-3 touchdown to intercept-report.
