Tips for Betting on Seattle Seahawks
The Seattle Seahawks were a tough team to pin down during the first half of last season. They teetered around the .500 mark early, falling to 4-5 after a week 9 loss to the LA Rams. From that point on, the Hawks turned their season around by winning six of their last seven games to qualify for the playoffs.
The team was once again led by the fantastic play of QB Russell Wilson and a committed rushing attack that was tops in the league. Seattle had great balance on both sides of the ball, finishing 6th in points scored and 11th in points against.
The team had a busy offseason, which included signing Wilson to a record-setting contract, trading top pass-rusher Frank Clark to the Chiefs, and losing WR Doug Baldwin to retirement. The LA Rams, who won the NFC West last season, once again represent the biggest threat within the division. To offset the loss of Clark, the Seahawks drafted DE LJ Collier with the 29th overall pick.
The Seahawks were the only team to finish in the top three both against the spread and over percentage last year. To close out the season, the Hawks hit the over in eight of their last nine games. These two stats definitely represent the biggest betting opportunities if you want to put money on the Seahawks.
The Russell Wilson to Tyler Lockett connection was the best in the NFL, with Wilson posting a perfect 158.3 passer rating when targeting Lockett. These performances are expected to continue which provides ample chances for prop bets on these players.
LJ Collier and WR DK Metcalf, the Seahawks’ first two 2019 draft picks, are expected to make an immediate impact for Seattle this season. Metcalf, in particular, is an intriguing prospect, with some believing he was the biggest steal of the draft.
Use these stats from last year to guide your wagers this season:
- The Seahawks finished second in the league vs. the spread last season, going 10-5-2 to finish the year with a 66.7 cover percentage.
- The Seahawks finished the year with a 9-7-0 over/under record when it came to betting game totals in 2018.
- Over the first five weeks of the season, the Hawks have to play at Steelers, vs. Saints, and vs. Rams — three of the best offenses in the league last season. On the flip side, they finish the year at home vs. the 49ers and Cardinals — the two worst teams in the league in 2018.
