2014 NFC West Division Odds
LAS VEGAS, NV (The Spread) - Here's a look at the current odds for the teams in the NFC West, including division, Super Bowl and win totals.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the defending Super Bowl champion Seahawks are 11/10 favorites to win the NFC West Division in 2014. The 49ers have the next-best odds at 7/5 while the Cardinals are 7/1 and the Rams are the clear long shot at 9/1. This division is regarded as the best in football.
The Seahawks are also favored to win the 2015 Super Bowl at 6/1, while the 49ers are listed third among the 32 teams at 15/2. There's a steep drop off from there, however, as the Cardinals are 40/1 long shots and the Rams are 50/1.
As far as 2015 NFC Conference odds are concerned, Seattle is 15/4 to win the title in 2014-15, while the 49ers have the next-best odds at 4/1. The Cardinals, meanwhile, are 20/1 long shots to win the NFC title next season, while the Rams are once again a distant fourth at 28/1.
Finally, the Cardinals have an over/under of 7.5 for number of wins in the 2014 regular season while the 49ers' win total is sitting at 10.5. The Seahawks have the highest over/under at 11, while the Rams' win total is 7.5.
Division Snap Shot: The Seahawks maintain the best defense in football and if Percy Harvin can stay healthy for an entire year, their offense should be even more potent than it was a year ago. The 49ers added to their offense this offseason by acquiring Stevie Johnson from the Bills via trade, although they'll be without NaVarro Bowman for perhaps the first two months of the season and Aldon Smith is facing a possible suspension for multiple off-field transgressions. The Cardinals won 10 games last year but will be without their best defensive player for the season after Daryl Washington was suspended, and the Rams are an up-and-coming team but questions remain about Sam Bradford's ability to get them over the hump.
