'Absolutely paramount' for Seahawks to establish run game
Their defensive eFG% for the year currently is 51%, which is 2nd in the WNBA. They are 5th in the WNBA in pace with 78.6 possessions per 48 minutes, and their eFG% of 48% is 7th. Chicago is 1st in the league in turnovers, as they turn the ball over an average of 16.0 times per 100 possessions while forcing 13.5 on defense. As a unit they are 7th in the league in true shooting percentage with 53% and they shoot 3-pointers on 29% of their shot attempts, ranking 7th in the WNBA. The Sky are 9th in the league in defensive rating with 112, and their offensive rating of 101.5 is ranked 1st.
The Seahawks have their work cut out for them Monday night. Although a couple of those were on quarterback Russell Wilson for not throwing the ball away, it was clear right tackle Germain Ifedi was outclassed by linebacker Von Miller. Seattles offensive line allowed six sacks against the Broncos last Sunday.
Seattle hold rivalry with Portland Timbers, but Vancouver Whitecaps are regarded as the clubs bitter rivals as well. Winning of the MLS Cup is undisputedly the clubs biggest success, but it has to be noted that the Sounders clinched the Supporters Shield trophy in 2014.
Wright have been ruled out, and that leaves a big hole in the middle of the Seattle defense -- particularly against the pass. Wagner and Wright are two of the best coverage linebackers in the NFL, and without them players like Burton and Tarik Cohen could have opportunities to get into open space. Even some of the holdovers that give this unit what little continuity it has will not actually be on the field for this particular game. Linebackers Bobby Wagner and K.J. Burton caught just one of his six targets last week and Cohen gained only 16 yards on his three grabs.
Chicago Fire vs Seattle Sounders PREDICTION & BETTING TIPS - 16/03/2019
That was the continuation of a career-long trend for Trubisky, who was near the bottom of pretty much every yardage ranking among quarterbacks during his rookie season. He averages just 6.5 yards per attempt for his career, with eight games above 7.0 per attempt and five below that mark -- one of which involved him throwing only seven passes.
Of course, the Rams' shocking run last year was so shocking in the first place because it resulted in the Seahawks being knocked off their perch as NFC West champions. Seattle had won the division every season since 2012 and become a staple in the later rounds of the playoffs, as Wilson and the defense kept them in every game -- literally -- for years.
Chicago White Sox vs. Seattle Mariners - 4/7/19 MLB Pick, Odds, and Prediction
Winning of the MLS Cup is undisputedly the clubs biggest success, but it has to be noted that the Sounders clinched the Supporters Shield trophy in 2014. Seattle hold rivalry with Portland Timbers, but Vancouver Whitecaps are regarded as the clubs bitter rivals as well.
Take Seattle in this one. The Mariners will bounce back here with Leake on the mound, behind whom they are 4-0 in his last 4 Saturday starts. The White Sox won the first game of the series 10-8. Also, the Mariners are 4-1 in the last 5 meetings with the White Sox.
Mitch's Best Picks
Michael Bennett was traded to the Eagles. The Seahawks lost players this offseason who accounted for 39.3 percent of their defensive snaps a year ago, but that number under-sells just how much turnover there has really been because so many longtime stalwarts missed time last year and then left the team. Richard Sherman tore his Achilles, and signed with the 49ers. Kam Chancellor suffered a neck injury, then was forced to retire. But they're not the only players who are gone. The same is true of Cliff Avril. Sheldon Richardson signed with the Vikings.
Their team ERA is 4.50, which is 20th in the MLB, while their WHIP is 1.14, which is 10th overall. they have a team batting average of .237, which is 15th, and 6 home runs, which is 18th. The White Sox average 5.2 runs per game, which is 9th in the league. Moncada leads the Sox with an average of .450 with 3 home runs and 6 RBIs. Leury Garcia is hitting ,368 while Tim Anderson is batting .333 and Jose Abreu is batting .300.
DK Metcalf 'way above' where people expected him to be
Chicago has become somewhat of a home-away-from home for the Seahawks as well. Not only are they 3-0 at Soldier Field under Carroll, but the Seahawks are the only non-divisional opponent to beat the Bears in Chicago in three straight seasons (2010-2012).
