Las Vegas sets the numbers, but we dissect them. Steve Sandmeyer, Bill Swartz and Jason A. Churchill each describe what they see taking place at MetLife Stadium Sunday, through a slew of prop bets, and a final pick for the winner of the game.
I don’t care if he threw for 3,300 yards, 300 yards or three yards. Whether it’s 26 TD passed or none. Russell Wilson is the Most Valuable Player on the 53-man roster. And that’s one big-time accomplishment, considering there are several pro bowlers and at least three All-Pro’s donning Seahawks Blue every week.
