Choose through FOX Sports activities NFC West author Eric D. Williams: Seahawks Over 8.5 wins
A lot of the league anticipated Seattle to crater after shifting on from QB Russell Wilson in 2022. In fact, Pete Carroll had different plans, main the Seahawks to the playoffs behind the stunning rebirth of quarterback Geno Smith. With one other stable draft this yr and the addition of veteran defensive playmakers in free company like Dre’Mont Jones, Julian Love and Bobby Wagner, the Seahawks ought to compete for the NFC West division crown with San Francisco, which implies a minimum of equaling final yr’s win complete of 9.
Choose through FOX Sports activities Wagering Knowledgeable Chris “The Bear” Fallica: Seahawks Underneath 8.5 wins
Lots of people love the Seahawks this yr — I’m not certainly one of them. I feel plenty of their success was a mirage and what we noticed late within the yr — once they misplaced 5 out of eight to complete the season, with wins solely over the hapless Rams (aided by some questionable officiating) and the offensively challenged Jets — was a more true indicator of what this group is.
Can Geno Smith compile large stats once more like he did final yr? The drop-off was steep on the finish of the season, and Professional Soccer Focus charted 14 dropped potential interceptions by opposing defenses.
Rookie receiver Jaxon Smith-Njigba is already harm. The schedule additionally appears to be like more durable this yr, as there’s a late October/early November stretch of video games vs. San Francisco, at Dallas, at San Francisco, vs. Philadelphia — often known as the most effective three groups within the NFC.
Street video games at Detroit, Baltimore and Cincinnati loom, too. Certain, you get pleasure from 4 video games vs. two of the worst groups within the league in Arizona and Los Angeles, however I feel final yr’s shock playoff run has led to a couple too many expectations this yr, and it is time to go low on the Seahawks.
My favourite win-total wager on this squad is Underneath 9.5 (-155).
