The Seattle Seahawks were projected to be one of the worst teams in the NFL last year, but fans were treated to a playoff berth and a Geno Smith campaign that resulted in him winning Comeback Player of the Year.
Now the question is whether or not the Seahawks can maintain this level of play or if they'll regress closer to how they were expected to look last season.

In this article, I'm going to break down the full list of available betting odds for the Seattle Seahawks this season, including their projected win total and their odds to win the NFC West.
Seattle Seahawks Super Bowl 58 odds
At +3500, the Seahawks are tied for the 14th best odds to win the Super Bowl alongside the Minnesota Vikings. They're right behind the Cleveland Browns (+3000) and one spot ahead of the Green Bay Packers and New Orleans Saints (+4000).
Oddsmakers aren't sure what to expect from the Seahawks after last year's surprisingly good season. +3500 odds means they have an implied probability of 2.78% of winning Super Bowl 58. A $100 bet on them to win it all would win you a profit of $3,500 if they're able to achieve the feat.
Seattle Seahawks win total projection for 2023 season
The Seahawks finished last season with a 9-8 record and oddsmakers expect a similar result in 2023. Their win total is set at 8.5 with the OVER slightly favored at -142, which would land them at the exact same record they had in 2022.
Something working in the Seahawks favor is they have the 10th easiest schedule in the NFL based on opponent projected win totals.
Seattle Seahawks odds to win NFC West
The NFC West is expected to once again go through San Francisco. The Seahawks had a shot at the division title last year, but they cooled off in the second half of the season and allowed the 49ers to run away with it.
The good news is the Seahawks have significantly better odds to win the division than the Rams (+1000) and the Cardinals (+2700). So, it seems if the 49ers aren't able to get the job done or regress in some form, the Seahawks should be right there to pounce on the divisional crown.

Seattle Seahawks odds to make the playoffs
Based on both the divisional odds and their projected win total, oddsmakers expect the Seahawks to have an almost identical year as 2022. At -122 odds to make the playoffs, they have an implied probability of 54.95%.
With the 49ers odds on favorites to win the NFC West, a wild card spot is in the hands for Seattle. Let's also consider how weak the NFC is as a conference this season. The wild card spots could be claimed by any numbers of teams.
Best Seattle Seahawks season-long prop bet
Jordyn Brooks regular season tackles leader (+1400)
Jordyn Brooks racked up the second most combined tackles in 2021 with 184, only eight back from the tackles leader, Foye Oluokun.
Brooks missed a game last season, playing just 16-of-17, and still finished sixth in the NFL in total tackles with 161.
I think it's not a matter of "if" but more a matter of "when" Brooks will lead the NFL in tackles. The 25-year old is just entering the prime of his NFL career and I expect him to take another step forward this season. If he does and if he can manage to stay healthy, he's a fantastic bet to lead the league in tackles at +1400.
For this bet, a $100 wager would win your a profit of $1,400 if he ends up leading the NFL in tackles.
