Seattle Seahawks Win Totals
- Over 9 ½ / Under 9 ½
How will the Seahawk’s eleventh ranked toughest schedule in the NFL affect their win total?
Seattle’s quest for a second straight NFC West title could go up in flames before it even begins. The Seahawks are on the road in 3 of their first 4 games: at Indianapolis on Sep. 12, at Minnesota on Sep. 26, and at San Francisco on Oct. 3.
The home game in the first month is versus the strong Tennessee Titans. But the schedule doesn’t let up after the first month with games versus the Rams, Saints, and Jaguars, and a road game against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Oct. 17 before Seattle’s Week 9 bye.
The schedule after the bye also isn’t a cakewalk. The five road games are at Green Bay, at the WFT, at the Texans, at the Rams, and at the Cardinals. So the answer to the question is, big time. The Seahawks’ eleventh ranked toughest schedule will affect their chances of hitting over their win total big time.
What are the games Seattle should definitely win?
Seattle should have no trouble winning the following games.
- vs. Jacksonville – Oct. 31
- at Houston – Dec. 12
- vs. Chicago – Dec. 26
- vs. Detroit – Jan. 2
Those are 4 for sure victories. That doesn’t mean Seattle won’t win 10 games this season. It does mean the Seahawks will have to work hard to get the over.
What are the games the Seahawks will almost assuredly lose?
Seattle should lose the following games.
- at Indianapolis – Sep. 12
- at San Francisco – Oct. 3
- at Pittsburgh – Oct. 17
- at Green Bay – Nov. 14
- at Washington Football Team – Nov. 29
- at Los Angeles Rams – Dec. 19
Again, that doesn’t mean the Seahawks will go over or under the total. What it means is that there, at least on paper, appears to be more for sure losses than for sure victories on Seattle’s schedule.
Final Analysis: Will the Seattle Seahawks go over or under the 9 ½ win total?
Below are the seven games that should determine whether Seattle goes over or under their win total.
- vs. Tennessee – Sep. 19
- at Minnesota – Sep. 26
- vs. LAR – Oct. 7
- vs. New Orleans – Oct. 25
- vs. Arizona – Nov. 21
- vs. San Francisco – Dec. 5
- at Arizona – Jan. 9
If we’re correct in our assessment of the games Seattle most definitely will lose and the games they will absolutely win, the Seahawks mut take 6 of the 7 games on the above list to go over 9 ½. Is it impossible?
Of course not, but it’s unlikely. We’re counting on the Seahawks to beat the Rams, Saints, Titans, Cardinals, and 49ers at home. Russell Wilson and his teammates would then have to beat the Vikings or Cardinals on the road.
Again, it’s not impossible, but it’s unlikely. Will the Seahawks win over 9 ½ games this season? After this analysis, the answer is no.
Seahawks Total Pick: Under 9 ½
