Seahawks Betting Lines 2022
The Seattle Seahawks will begin a new era in 2022, as it will be the team’s first season in 11 years without longtime superstar anchors Russell Wilson and Bobby Wagner. Wilson was sent to Denver in the biggest blockbuster deal of the offseason, while Wagner hooked on with the division rival Rams after being released.
Wilson and Wagner were the final two starters remaining on the roster from the team that won Super Bowl XLVIII nine seasons ago. Now Pete Carroll and John Schneider have started to put the foundation in place for what they hope is another eventual run to another title.
The Seahawks won’t be mentioned by anyone among Super Bowl contenders for 2022, but the team’s brain trust made apparent moves to start structuring a winner in the future.
Seattle addressed the offensive line early in the 2022 draft, taking two offensive tackles in the first three rounds, including Mississippi State’s Charles Cross at No. 9 overall.
They added Michigan State running back Kenneth Walker III in the second round. He could combine with Rashaad Penny to form the NFC’s most outstanding running back duo.
The Seahawks still have the phenomenal combination of DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett at wide receiver, and they acquired tight end Noah Fant in the Wilson trade.
The skill positions appear to be set with quality options, but the obvious and major question will be if Drew Lock or Geno Smith can effectively take advantage of their supporting cast.
There were moves made to upgrade the pass rush, and the safety duo of Quandre Diggs and Jamal Adams can be one of the best in the game. But there may be some concerns at cornerback and linebacker, and the defense will be tested immediately, as the Seahawks host Wilson and the Denver Broncos in a must-see Week 1 matchup on Monday Night Football.

Seahawks Super Bowl 57 Odds
Seahawks to Win Super Bowl (+15000)
While Carroll publicly maintains that he intends to compete for a Super Bowl title, that goal must be pushed down the road until the glaring issue at quarterback is solved.
He and Schneider reportedly had their eyes on Lock when he was coming out of Missouri with the 2019 draft class. Smith, Wilson’s former backup, will begin the season with the starting job.
Both quarterbacks have an ample crew of playmakers around them, but unless Lock greatly benefits from a change of scenery and working with Metcalf, Lockett, and Fant, the Seahawks will be hard-pressed to even make the playoffs in a division where at least two teams (the Rams and 49ers) are Super Bowl contenders and the Cardinals should finish third, at worst.
Seahawks NFC Championship Odds
Seahawks to Win NFC Championship (+7000)
Smith earned the starting role partially because of his experience last season in the offense guided by offensive coordinator Shane Waldron. Lock, though, may still have some upside that Smith doesn’t.
Lock has an 8-13 record as a starter, and he had 16 TDs and 15 interceptions when he started 13 games in 2020 with a completion percentage of just 57.3, the lowest among QBs with a minimum of 150 attempts.
He has shown some minor flashes of promise, such as at the end of that season, when he had four TD passes in Week 14 and a 339-yard outing in Week 17.
The Seattle receiving duo of Metcalf and Lockett is superior to those Lock had in Denver, and Carroll and Schneider are hoping that a fresh start can turn Lock’s career around. He still has potency as a downfield passer.
The Seahawks won’t come anywhere close to vying for the NFC Championship, but a Lock revival could help them exceed expectations.
Seahawks NFC West Winner Odds
Seahawks to Win NFC West (+1500)
With the Rams still looking like a Super Bowl contender and the 49ers capable of another deep playoff run, the Seahawks don’t appear to have much of a chance to contend for a division title. In addition to the concerns at quarterback, the defense has its own question marks.
The Seahawks lost top cornerback D.J. Reed, so they will be hoping promising second-year man Tre Brown and Sidney Jones can be an adequate pairing. Rookie Coby Bryant will be one to watch at the position as well.
The Seattle defense had just 34 sacks last season. The Seahawks acquired DE Shelby Harris (6.0 sacks in 2021) in the Wilson trade and OLB Uchenna Nwosu (5.0) in free agency in addition to drafting Minnesota edge rusher Boye Mafe of Minnesota in the second round.
They also revamped the defensive coaching staff, promoting Clint Hurtt to defensive coordinator and bringing in former Bears defensive coordinator Sean Desai as an associate head coach in the most notable moves.
Hurtt’s defense should be more aggressive up front than it was under Ken Norton Jr., but Seattle won’t be in the mix for the NFC West title. Winning half of its NFC West matchups would be an impressive feat in 2022.
Seahawks To Make Playoffs Odds
Seahawks to Make Playoffs (+500)
If you are feeling gutsy, then make the wager for the Seahawks to possibly claim a final NFC Wild Card berth. Carroll has found ways to surprise the experts before, such as winning the “Beast Quake” game in the playoffs in 2011 and taking the team to the postseason in 2018 after the “Legion of Boom” fully dissolved.
Penny was the top RB in the NFL down the stretch last season, and Walker is a dynamic runner who may be the best pure ball carrier from the 2022 NFL Draft class.
Metcalf and Lockett are still significant threats and we may have not seen the best of Fant yet. The offensive line is upgraded and may prove to be sturdy as the season progresses.
Everything has to break right for the Seahawks to make the playoffs, and the biggest factor is if they can get respectable QB play to hold it all together on offense. We will also have to see Adams play at his highest levels while the pass rush improves and the cornerbacks hold up.
Seahawks Win Total Bets 2022
Seahawks: OVER 5.5 Wins (-135)
WAGER: 1 Unit
Many observers will take the Under, but the Seahawks have never won fewer than seven games under Carroll, which has happened three times. Seattle should at least remain competitive, and with decent QB play, they could win seven or eight games.
Lock can be the wild card in terms of them winning more than seven.
We cannot assume for sure that Lock will play badly, or Smith cannot be an adequate caretaker of the offense. There is also enough talent around the QB position that the supporting playmakers could ease the pressure on the passer. Those are optimistic viewpoints, but Carroll is an eternal optimist and he will keep the team in games frequently.
Reviewing the 2022 schedule can be a tricky exercise, as much will change in terms of outlooks. But there appear to be opportunities for wins against the Falcons, Lions, Saints, Giants, Panthers, and Jets. Plus, Seattle can maybe win a pair of divisional games, and an upset or two is always possible.
Seahawks Prop Bets 2022
Kenneth Walker III: Most Regular Season Rushing Yards (+7500)
Expecting a rookie to lead the NFL in rushing is enough of a long shot, but there is a conceivable path in which it happens for Walker. Penny is at (+5000) to win the rushing title, but we do know that durability has been a concern for him throughout his career.
If Penny cannot stay healthy and Walker must operate as the lead RB for Seattle for much of the year, he has tremendous potential. Walker is the full package as a runner.
He has good vision and patience, runs well in short space, breaks tackles, and can make defenders miss. He also has the gears to take off and outrun opponents once he hits the second level of the defense.
Walker must be a consistently effective pass blocker to remain on the field. Penny is also an attractive prop bet at his number for the daring types, as he will want to continue to prove last season’s late surge was no fluke.
But there is a lucrative prop payoff and a possible road to a big year for Walker, even though it seems to be an outside shot right now.
How to Bet Seahawks Moneylines
If you’re new to NFL betting, this is the place to start. This is the most straightforward bet you can make — all you need to do is pick which team you believe will win the game. If you’re right, you win your bet.
A team’s moneyline odds will change on a weekly basis depending on their matchup. The Seahawks likely won’t be favored in too many games this year, but when they are, you’ll see a minus symbol (-120) next to their odds. Otherwise, it’ll be accompanied by a plus symbol (+145).

How to Bet Seahawks Spreads
Spread betting is relatively easy to understand as well. In short, each team will have an evenly-priced wager. This figure is the number of points that oddsmakers believe that team will win or lose by.
For example, if Seattle is a 3.5-point favorite against the Jets, it would look like this at a sportsbook: Seahawks -3.5 (-110) vs Jets +3.5 (-110).
In this case, the Seahawks would need to win the game by at least four points to cover the spread. If they lose the game or win by fewer than three points, then the Jets would cover the spread instead.

How to Bet Seahawks Over/Unders
Over/Unders are another interesting way to bet on NFL games. Here, the winner of the game doesn’t matter. Instead, we’re focusing solely on the total number of points scored.
Before the game begins, oddsmakers will set a projected scoring total for the combined number of points. That may be something like 46.5 points, for example. In this case, if 47+ points are scored, then the Over would hit. If 46 points or less are scored, then the Under would hit.
