A new era is set to begin in Seattle with Mike Macdonald taking over as head coach, and as a result, the team is expected to enter into a mini-rebuilding phase. The Seahawks don't need to completely revamp their roster as they still have plenty of great players, specifically on the offensive side of the ball, but a small step back in terms of record is expected in 2024.

Oddsmakers back up that belief as sportsbooks across the country have released projected win totals for all 32 teams now that we're a month into the offseason. Let's take a look at what the Seahawks' projected win total is sitting at for the 2024 campaign.

2024 Seahawks win total

FanDuel Sportsbook has the Seahawks' win total for the 2024 season set at 7.5 wins. Considering the Seahawks went 9-8 in 2023, a small step back is expected for the franchise.

The silver lining of the win total is that the over is the favored side at -128, meaning there's a 55.36% implied probability that the Seahawks will win at least eight games in 2024. Still, 8-9 is likely to not be enough for a playoff berth and it's still one game worse than their record last season. Even if they do manage another 9-8 record, they'd seemingly be stuck in No Man's Land of not being good enough for the playoffs but being too good for a high draft pick.

This year, the Seahawks hold the No. 16 overall pick in the upcoming NFL Draft and they'll likely look to boost their defense, which was a weak point of their team in 2023.

Seattle made a smart move in re-signing Leonard Williams on its defensive line, but fans were likely hoping for the Seahawks to make a bigger splash in free agency. Unfortunately, these things can take some time and there are plenty of questions to be answered surrounding this team in 2024.
