Seattle Seahawks NFL Betting

After trading Russell Wilson to Denver in the offseason and relying upon an influx of rookies to make immediate impacts, the online sportsbook wasn’t bullish on the Seattle Seahawks entering the 2022-23 NFL betting season. So much so that the team’s season wins total clocked in at 5.5 after going off the board at 9, 9.5, and 9.5 over the last three seasons. But after getting the best of the aforementioned Broncos in the season opener with it highly evident the old version of Geno Smith was no longer lining up under center, Pete Carroll’s troops actually started getting some love from the betting market; especially after rattling off wins in five of six games from week four to nine. The end result saw the Seahawks snag the seventh and final seed in the NFC playoffs. While they were unceremoniously dumped by the San Francisco 49ers for the third straight time in the wild-card round, things are looking up in the Emerald City with that young crop brought in making noticeable impacts in their rookie campaigns.

Seattle Seahawks 2022 Season Recap

The Seahawks entered 2022-23 with a number of unknowns on both sides of the ball. Even before Seattle kicked it off against the Broncos in the season opener, it was undetermined who the QB1 of the offense would be. Remember when Drew Lock was expected to be the offense’s ringleader? Thankfully, that train of thought never came to pass after Smith took over the reins from the season outset and never relinquished his hold. He also added another 366 yards and a score with his legs. After six-plus years of holding a clipboard on the sideline, Smith would go on to throw for 4,282 yards and a 30:11 TD/INT ratio which amounted to the first full time QB rating over 100 in his career. The nine-year veteran is an unrestricted free agent in 2023, so it remains to be seen what upper management will decide to do entering the offseason.

Rashaad Penny opened the year as the offense’s primary running back. The former San Diego State product has shown well when in the huddle throughout his first four years in the league. Unfortunately, sticking in the huddle has been a major issue with him being healthy for only 37 of 66 total regular season games. This time around, No. 20 managed five starts before his season was cut short. Upper management luckily decided to take a shot with MSU standout Kenneth Walker III with the 41st pick in the second round of the NFL Draft. The kid stepped right in and rushed for over 1,000 yards and scored nine touchdowns in 15 games and 11 starts. Seattle would end up with the league’s No. 18 ranked rushing attack that is likely to only get better with young standout linemen Abraham Lucas and Charles Cross in the infancy of their careers. Walker can be a premiere RB for years to come provided he avoids the injury bug.

The passing attack also looks to be in great shape with both Tyler Lockett and D.K. Metcalf locked up for the foreseeable future. Each would surpass the 1,000 receiving yards plateau and combine for 15 touchdowns. The passing attack is how the offense buttered its bread with it ranked No. 11 overall in averaging over 231 yards per game. But it’s the pass defense that ultimately allowed for Seattle to get out of the NFC West basement and punch a ticket to the playoffs. The additions of Coby Bryant and Tariq Woolen paid immediate dividends with the UTSA standout snagging a league-best six interceptions while routinely shutting down the opposing team’s best pass catcher. Seattle finished the regular season owners of the NFL’s No. 13 ranked pass defense a year removed from giving up a whopping 265.5 per contest (No. 31). While Darrell Taylor and Uchenna Nwosu combined for 19 sacks, Seattle didn’t get much else in the form of pressure (No. 21) from anyone else with the unit accruing a grand total of 34 QB sacks (No. 23).

2023 Offseason

The Seahawks ended the season 9-8 SU and 7-10 versus the closing NFL odds. They went 5-4 at home and split their eight played away from the 12th Man. Even their record versus the total was mediocre with the under cashing on nine of 17 occasions. After showing he can handle the rigors of a full 17-game schedule and do it with swagger, I think Geno Smith deserves another crack at the QB1 job. Franchise tag him. Sign him. Do whatever it takes to solidify the quarterback position and look to improve the defense even more in the NFL Draft and free agency. The secondary looks to be in solid shape moving forward, but the same can’t and won’t be said of the front seven. An EDGE rusher is sorely needed; an interior linemen with eyes for opposing quarterbacks would also be a plus. By way of shipping Wilson to Denver in the offseason, the Seahawks will have a pair of first round picks with the first coming in at No. 5. Alabama’s Will Anderson or Clemson’s Myles Murphy would satisfy one of those needs in a jiffy. Then look to add an impact linebacker that excels in coverage. Seattle got destroyed in the middle of the field all season!

Once upon a time, the Seattle Seahawks were a hot property for prime time television. But their opening game of the 2022 season is among the most attractive of the entire season.

In week one, the Seahawks will host Russell Wilson and the Denver Broncos on ESPN Monday Night Football. Wilson will play his first game for Denver at the stadium where he became an NFL superstar. The fan reaction will be fascinating. At the same time, the TV ratings and betting activity will set new records.

The Seahawks will play on a week 15 Thursday night Prime Video game against the San Francisco 49ers. They also have a week ten game in Europe against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The Seahawks were founded as an entertaining expansion team in 1976 that quickly became competitive. From 1999 through 2008, Mike Holmgren made the Seahawks a serious contender and NFC champion in 2005. In the 2013 season, Pete Carroll led Seattle to the only Super Bowl championship in franchise history. Since 2003, Seattle has missed the playoffs only four times.
