Default SEATTLE RUINS TEASERS IN WEEK 7

LAS VEGAS – A bonehead coaching move made by Seattle’s Pete Carroll early in the fourth quarter helped bettors cash in on the St. Louis Rams on Sunday while also knocking out teasers including the defending Super Bowl champion Seahawks. Carroll opted to go for a 2-point conversion with 9:44 remaining in an attempt to tie up the game at 21-21, but his team ended up losing by that final margin 28-26 at St. Louis as 6.5-point favorites.

Johnny Avello,, The Wynn's Executive Director of Race & Sports Operations, pointed to that specific play as the game-changer. Avello believes it was too early for the Seahawks to go for two, although he was not surprised that Carroll made the decision due to his past history as the head coach at USC.

“The guy’s won a Super Bowl, but it’s one of those moves you don’t pull in the NFL,” Avello said. “It’s a college coach move. That’s just not the right thing to do. You go for the two later in the game. I knew Carroll would definitely get burned sooner or later by pulling some of this crap. In college you get away with it, in the pros it’s a lot more difficult.”

Heading into the weekend, Avello had noted that Week 7 was ripe for teaser opportunities with Seattle, the Indianapolis Colts (-3.5), Chicago Bears (-3.5), Green Bay Packers (-6.5), Baltimore Ravens (-6.5) as prime candidates to be included by bettors because they were popular teams sitting within one point of the key numbers 3 and 7. The Colts, Packers and Ravens all won big to easily cover the spread, but the Bears and Seahawks losing straight-up ended up helping The Wynn post a small profit.

“The Colts game was bad for us, the Bears game was a good game for us,” Avello said. “The Packers rolled, and Baltimore rolled. I think the game that knocked out some of the teasers was the Seattle game. The number came down a little bit, the bettors liked the Rams in that game. They thought the Rams had a chance in that one, and they were right. We were struggling for a lot of the day, and overall the day was a small win.”

After surprisingly trading wide receiver Percy Harvin away to the New York Jets on Friday, bettors decided to fade the Seahawks as they continued to struggle trying to find some offensive consistency. Without Harvin, Seattle looked out of sync early on, going down 21-3 before battling back in the second half to make a game of it. St. Louis had led 14-3 against the San Francisco 49ers just six days earlier on Monday Night Football before losing 31-17 but was able to hold on for its second win of the season.

The Seahawks no longer look like an unbeatable team with losses in each of their last two games. A daunting second-half schedule also awaits Seattle, including road matchups with the Kansas City Chiefs, San Francisco 49ers, Philadelphia Eagles and Arizona Cardinals during a tough six-game stretch.

“I’m raising Seattle up, this is the highest you’re going to get Seattle in quite some time,” Avello said before moving the Seahawks to 7/1 to win the Super Bowl. “But the team’s 3-3, and they’re having a rough time on the road. Not that this team can’t still put it together, but the Broncos just look like the team right now. They just look fantastic.”

Speaking of Denver, Peyton Manning’s record-setting performance in a 42-17 rout of the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday Night Football also helped The Wynn, according to Avello. Manning threw four touchdown passes to break Brett Favre’s all-time record of 508, and the Broncos cruised to an easy cover as 6.5-point home favorites.

“Believe it or not, we actually won that game,” Avello said. “We were sitting at 7 a lot, we took some 49er money going back, kind of held at the number and it kind of worked out for us. Surprisingly, winning that game with Denver winning and it going over is kind of unusual. But it worked ok.”
