It should be no surprise that the Hawks are scoring less per game this year than last. Mike Sando has figured the numbers and presented them in Seahawks Insider – ’05 Hawks favored by 7 1/2. He notes that that the Hawks are 7-2 when they score at least 20 points. Looking further into that we can see that the Cowboys are averaging 26 points per game this year and in 2 of their last 3 they’ve scored 31, so the Hawk’s job this week is going to be tough.
The other item of interest is that the analysts on ESPN that I’ve heard so far favor Seattle at home. I guess it is my pessimistic side coming out, but when everyone picks them to win it worries me. I still think they’ll do it, but my confidence is a little lower than it was yesterday.
