The Seattle Seahawks are playing their first game in London while the Raiders are making their second trip to London and the fourth trip for an international game.
The Week 6 NFL spread favors the Seahawks by 2.5-points. If you are betting the moneyline, Seattle pays $100 on a $135 bet and a win by Oakland pays $115 on a $100 wager.
This is the fifth meeting between the former AFC West rivals since Seattle moved to the NFC in 2002. Each team has won two and lost two meetings since then. The most recent head-to-head matchup in 2014 was a 30-24 Seattle victory.

Why bet on the Seahawks ATS over the Raiders
At 2-3 some believe that the Seahawks have overachieved. But two straight wins, followed by a narrow 33-31 loss to the dominant Rams has turned people’s heads.
Seattle has yet to play a game decided by more than nine points. Combine that with the 2.5-point betting spread and everything points this being a close game.
Why bet on the Raiders ATS over the Seahawks
The Raiders sit at 1-4. The offense can rack the yards at 411.2 (7th most in the league) but sits 29th in points scored at 149. That is mostly due to nine turnovers through five weeks, one of the highest rates in the league. Five of QB Derek Carr’s eight interceptions have occurred on first downs.
So what should head-coach Jon Gruden’s game plan be?
- Handoff to Marshawn Lynch
- Handoff to Beastmode
- Handoff to #24
The former Seahawk running back is ninth in the NFL with 331 yards rushing so far this season. Lynch is on pace to rush for 1,059 yards with an average of 4.3 yards per carry.
ATS Pick Seahawks vs Raiders at Wembley Stadium
The Raiders own the 30th-ranked defense but face a Seahawks team that has the 27th-ranked offense. Can Oaklands turnover happy 7th-ranked offense be the difference maker?
The Legion of Boom is no more. Beastmode runs in Raider black and silver. I am betting on Oakland to cover the 2.5-point spread as underdogs.
