Looking over the many horizons of the Seattle Seahawks upcoming season, today we focus on how to bet on them in the year of the unknown.
With roster cuts made, off-season trades and rumors officially behind us, the 2022 regular season is finally here. We are less than one week away from kickoff for the Seattle Seahawks as they get ready to host former quarterback Russell Wilson and the Denver Broncos on Monday night football.
This has been the most dramatic offseason for the Seattle Seahawks since the Pete Carroll era. There has been a lot of turnover and thus, many questioning the direction of this franchise. On Monday Night, it is going to be very odd to see a Seahawks team line up and play without Russell Wilson and Bobby Wagner. On the flip side, there will be a lot of youth taking the field with high upside that has many 12s optimistic about what is ahead.
Combining those two factors together, the oddsmakers expect the Seahawks to struggle in this upcoming season. To a certain extent, I’d agree. That’s why I’d advise using caution when betting on the Seahawks.
There are many different ways to approach NFL bets. However, the three we will focus on here are win totals, divisional odds and the weekly spread.
WynnBET betting odds have set the win totals at 5.5 for our beloved Seattle Seahawks. Oddly enough, it’s -115 for over and +105 for under. You would think given the expectations of this team, that would be flipped.
The schedule makers didn’t do this Seahawks team any favors this year. Not only do they play in one of the tougher divisions, but they face the daunting AFC West as well. Not only can you win more money betting the under, but it’s the right move. Take the conservative approach here. The Seahawks schedule opens with some favorable opponents such as the Falcons, Lions along with the 49ers who they have dominated over the years.
In the middle of the season, they face a Giants team in a similar situation to them and the Jets later in the season. They’d have to win all 5 of those games plus beat an additional opponent of Denver, Kansas City, Las Vegas, Los Angeles (Chargers), Arizona, Los Angeles (Rams), New Orleans, Tampa Bay or Carolina. Knowing what Geno is plus the hiccups that come with a youthful roster, I just don’t see Seattle winning 6 or more games. Which, by the way, would be a good thing for this roster.
WynnBET betting odds give the Seahawks +1600 odds to walk away as divisional winners.
Unless you are feeling very frisky, stay the hell away. If, by some miracle they did, the payout would be great, but it’s not worth the risk. Use that money for another bet, whether that be in win totals or the weekly spread.
This will be the most intriguing bet for the Seahawks throughout the season. The reason being is that I expect Seattle to be very similar to Detroit last year. The Lions went 10-7 against the spread last season. They were good enough to compete in many close games, just not experienced enough to close them out successfully.
Betting on each game per week is going to come down to what options give you the better odds. Betting the moneyline means you expect the Seahawks to flat out win the game. Betting the spread means you expect Seattle to lose by a specific margin, or win straight up. WynnBET betting odds have Seattle as +6.5 underdogs in Week 1 against the Broncos with +100 odds. They have +230 moneyline odds. If you are taking my advice, bet the moneyline as I believe the Seahawks win the revenge game.
