The Seattle Seahawks are definitely a team gong through change right now. After five straight years of recording double-digit victories and winning at least one playoff game each postseason, Seattle missed out on reaching the playoffs a year ago while coming up just short of reaching 10 wins. Now, as Seattle looks to continue its makeover from its Legion of Boom heyday, no one knows what quite to expect out of the Super Bowl 48 winners and Super Bowl 49 participants.
With the league’s fifth-toughest schedule in terms of their opponents’ 2017 winning percentages, the Seahawks are going to have their hands full in 2018. If you’re looking to make a potentially, bankroll-boosting props odds wager on Seattle’s regular season win total figure, then you’re going to increase your chances of doing just that thanks to the expert betting analysis and predictions that you’re about to get.
Now, let’s find out what lies ahead for the Seahawks this coming season.
Seattle Seahawks 2018 NFL Win/Loss Odds Prediction
— Seattle Seahawks (@Seahawks) July 18, 2018
- Seattle Seahawks Regular Season Win Total Odds – 9
Week 1: Sunday, Sept. 9, at Denver Broncos, 4:25 p.m. ET
The Broncos have a competent quarterback for the first time in a while in veteran Case Keenum, but I like Seattle for the big road win mostly because I don’t think Denver’s defense will be quite as good as it ever was under legendary coordinator Wade Phillips. Besides, Keenum is no Russell Wilson! Win. 1-0.
Week 2: Monday, Sept. 17, at Chicago Bears, 8:15 p.m. ET
The Seahawks are the pick to win their second straight road game against a Bears team that is in the beginning stages of a rebuild mode under first-year head coach Matt Nagy. Win. 2-0.
Week 3: Sunday, Sept. 23, vs. Dallas Cowboys, 4:25 p.m. ET
The Seahawks beat the Cowboys on Christmas Eve in Dallas last season and they’ll hold it down at home in this Week 3 matchup as Russell Wilson abuses what I expect to be a mediocre Cowboys’ defense. Win. 3-0.
Week 4: Sunday, Sept. 30, at Arizona Cardinals, 4:05 p.m. ET
The Seahawks are the pick to beat the Cardinals despite being on the road against their NFC West division rivals, mostly because they’re facing another first-year head coach for the second time this season. Win. 4-0.
Week 5: Sunday, Oct. 7, vs. Los Angeles Rams, 4:25 p.m. ET
The Rams blasted the Seahawks off the field in their stunning 42-7 Week 15 road date last season. While I don’t see another rout of that proportion coming, I do like the Rams to get the regular season sweep, starting with this Week 5 matchup. Loss. 4-1.
Week 6: Sunday, Oct. 14, at Oakland Raiders, 1 p.m. ET
Russell Wilson narrowly outplays Derek Carr to help the Seahawks get the narrow win in London in a contest that looks like a shootout just waiting to happen. Win. 5-1.
Week 7: Bye
Week 8: Sunday, Oct. 28, at Detroit Lions, 1 p.m. ET
This is a contest that Seattle should win, but probably won’t. Every team comes up with one mostly inexplicable loss that should have never happened and this game looks like the one for Seattle. Loss. 5-2.
Week 9: Sunday, Nov. 4, vs. Los Angeles Chargers, 4:05 p.m. ET
I’m thinking the Chargers are going to be the better of the two teams in this Week 9 Inter-Conference clash and that they manage to hold down the fort at home in a really defining win for them. Loss. 5-3.
Week 10: Sunday, Nov. 11, at Los Angeles Rams, 4:25 p.m. ET
Seattle picked up a hard-fought 16-10 road win over the Rams in Week 5 last season, but I’m feeling like L.A. gets the regular season sweep in 2018. Loss. 5-4.
Week 11: Thursday, Nov. 15, vs. Green Bay Packers, 8:20 p.m. ET
The Seahawks and Packers keep making Instant Classic pretty much every time they meet and I suspect this Week 11 meeting will be another. Seattle wins in a shootout. Win. 6-4.
Week 12: Sunday, Nov. 25, at Carolina Panthers, 1 p.m. ET
The Seahawks are going down in the Dirty South against a Panthers team that has a superior defense and a play-making quarterback like Russell Wilson in veteran signal-caller Cam Newton. Loss. 6-5.
Week 13: Sunday, Dec. 2, vs. San Francisco 49ers, 8:20 p.m. ET
The Seahawks will greet Richard Sherman warmly – before going on to beat their former teammate and a rebuilding 49ers team that still needs to improve on the defensive side of the ball. Win. 7-5.
Week 14: Monday, Dec. 10, vs. Minnesota Vikings, 8:15 p.m. ET
The Seahawks were once the best defensive team in all of football. Now it’s Minnesota and the Vikings will get a huge road win in this matchup that sends a direct message to the Seahawks that should they meet in the playoffs, then can expect another whipping. Loss. 7-6.
Week 15: Sunday, Dec. 16, at San Francisco 49ers, 4:05 p.m. ET
The Niners get the regular season split in the second meeting between these NFC West division rivals. I’m thinking a high-scoring shootout is in the making and how about a Richard Sherman interception of Russell Wilson to go along with it? Loss. 7-7.
Week 16: Sunday, Dec. 23, vs. Kansas City Chiefs, 8:20 p.m. ET
Seattle will be desperate for a win after dropping two straight and they’ll get it against young quarterback Patrick Mahomes, even if it’s not a cakewalk. Win. 8-7.
Week 17: Sunday, Dec. 30, vs. Arizona Cardinals, 4:25 p.m. ET
The Seahawks close out the regular season with another win over the Cardinals at home to keep their narrow postseason hopes alive! Win. 9-7.
I’ve got the Seahawks winning exactly nine games to fall directly on their nine-win total figure. The fact of the matter is that Seattle could go either way by recording eight wins or 10. This is one of the most difficult win total figures on the board this year. I’d be really careful with my wager on Seattle’s win total.
