Week 7 is loaded with good matchups, but few have as much intrigue as our game, Baltimore vs. Seattle. These two teams are both solid, and flaunting winning records ahead of their 4:25 P.M ET meetings. On top of that, they're both on a roll; Baltimore is coming off back-to-back wins while the Seahawks have a three-game winning streak going.

Because they're in different conferences, meetings between Baltimore and Seattle are few and far between. Dating back to 2004, they've only met three times, with the Seahawks winning each and every one of them. Altogether, the Seahawks have outscored the Ravens 84-29 in their last three meetings.

FOX will broadcast their game on Sunday at 4:25 P.M ET.

Ravens Having Up and Down Season

After two weeks, everyone was singing the praises of the Baltimore Ravens. They were 2-0, having outscored their opponents 82-27. From there, however, they dropped two in a row, before winning back-to-back games in Week 5 and Week 6. What the Ravens will need to avoid this week is a letdown like they had after their first two-game winning streak.

Baltimore's makeup is different this year than it's known as historically. Their defense isn't the driving force behind their success, it's the offense. In fact, their defense ranks 17th in points allowed and 13th in yards allowed per game. On the other side of the ball, though, they're prolific. The Ravens rank No. 1 in yards (450.7) per game and No. 2 in points (30.7) per game.

Will Marcus Peters be ready to play?

“He looked good. He’s ready to go. As I said, he’s going to play. He’ll probably play a lot. So, we’re looking forward to it. He looks good, and our coaches have done a good job of getting him up to speed. He’s done a really good job of studying and being up to speed. We’re just going to go … Hey, we’re going out there with all of our best weapons. We’re not holding anything back. We’re going to try to win the game.”

Injury-wise, there are a few key guys questionable for the game. Among them is Marquise "Hollywood" Brown, who has 21 receptions this year, and Jimmy Smith, perhaps their best cornerback.

Seahawks Great Once Again

Something really special is happening in Seattle right now, and there's no secret what's at the root of it. The answer is Russell Wilson, the six-time Pro Bowl quarterback of the Seahawks that's on his way to his first MVP award. Wilson's numbers this year are insane; he hasn't thrown an interception in 189 passing attempts, he has thrown 14 touchdowns, and his passer rating is head and shoulders above every other quarterback (124.7).

Wilson has benefited from a new weapon, DK Metcalf, who is averaging 21 yards per reception, and running back Chris Carson, who's taken a leap this year and appears to be an every-down back.

On defense, they're very opportunistic. The Seahawks defense has 12 takeaways already this year, tied for the fourth-most in football. Some of their best players are also questionable this week, including K.J Wright and Ziggy Ansah.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

The Ravens have gotten a lot of positive press this season but the Seahawks are a superior team and they're the right side in this one. After all, the Ravens folded after their last two-game winning streak, dropping two games in a row in Week 3 and Week 4. Plus, the Seahawks have a QB that's playing flawlessly and at a level where he won't let his team lose. They've had their backs against the wall in each of the last two weeks and he's willed them to wins. Seattle's defense is also above-average against the run and that's where Baltimore tries to win games. Being in Seattle makes this an easy choice.

Prediction: Seattle Seahawks -3

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

These two teams are very similar to one another. They have mobile quarterbacks, explosive offenses, and historically tough defenses. And, having said that, when they play one another, a low-scoring game is the result. Since 2004, none of their meetings have gone over and that trend will continue here. The Seahawks are going to slow down the Ravens running game and Seattle will escape with a 23-13 win.

Prediction: Under 49
