Football bettors were not satisfied with the release of the total in this 4 vs. 5 seeds NFC confrontation and moved the total from 42 to 44 on Wednesday this week. Chances are recent developments had a great deal to do with altering the number.
In Seattle’s last three games, the average total score was 56.3 points and in Dallas’ final trio of contests, they averaged 47 total points.
In these NFC teams recent meetings there is nothing to make one think they would reach 44 points with a 5-1 UNDER mark.

With turnovers, anything is possible, but this has all the makings of a 23-20 or 24-21 outcome. We will choose the former and here is why.
Each defense is in the Top 11 in points allowed (Dallas 6th, Seattle 11th) and Top 9 in Yards Per Point category. While we fully expect each club to connect on a few big plays, we are not convinced this will lead directly to points. There could be some 30 or 40-yard plays, but we could see both settling for field goals in those instances.
Seattle is 8-1 UNDER in road games against the NFC East and with Dallas having lost to the Seahawks back in September, they are 12-4 UNDER revenging an away loss. Expect this total to be pushed right up against the 44 points, but remain an UNDER.
