    Here's a word from the wise. Favorites laying 6 ½ points or more were 1-9 against the spread last week. Giving up more than a touchdown runs the risk of suffering while a coach with a big lead (Seattle's Mike Holmgren) shuts down his offense in the second half and allows the Rams to come back and beat him.

    Speaking of Seattle, two colossal trends will clash when the Seahawks visit New England.
