Nevada oddsmakers have installed a clear favorite in Saturday’s divisional-round matchup between the Seahawks and Saints in Seattle.

As you might expect, the team that won the previous matchup by 27 points is the one favored.

The Seahawks are 8.5-point favorites at numerous Nevada sports books, according to multiple websites that monitor the posted lines in the state.

The Seahawks defeated the Saints 34-7 in Seattle on December 2. Seattle was a six-point favorite in the first meeting.

The Saints have not been a underdog of more than a touchdown in a playoff game since 2000, when they were eight-point underdogs at Minnesota, according to Jim Feist point spread archives. The Vikings won 34-16.
