Seahawks Season Odds

The Seattle Seahawks have dominated their division for most of this decade. After a disastrous 2008 season, the Hawks look to bounce back to playoff form in ’09.

But NFL Futures Odds

This offseason, the Seahawks replaced long-time head coach Mike Holmgren with former Atlanta Falcons’ head man Jim Mora. The team also made a splash in free agency, signing T.J. Houshmandzadeh, who was highly regarded as the best receiver on the market, as well as cornerback Ken Lucas, center Bryan Pittman and fullback Justin Griffith, who once played for Mora in Atlanta. Seattle also re-signed linebacker Leroy Hill.

The Hawks had a fantastic draft, selecting one of the best prospects in the draft (if not the best) in linebacker Aaron Curry. They also selected center Max Unger in the second round and wide receiver Deon Butler in the third.

Oddsmakers from online sports book SBGGLOBAL have established the Seahawks’ odds to win Super Bowl XLIV at 25/1. They’ve also given Seattle 25/1 odds to win the NFC and 2.5/1 odds to win the NFC West.

Nobody is suggesting that the Seahawks should be favorites to win Super Bowl XLIV. But 50/1 to win? Seriously? This team is only a couple years removed from a Super Bowl appearance and while they’re certainly not the same team, they’re a lot better than oddsmakers are giving them credit for. Granted, everything revolves around the health of quarterback Matt Hasselbeck, who missed most of 2008 with a serious back injury. If he isn’t healthy, then there’s a good chance Seattle will post similar, awful offensive numbers as they did last season. But if he’s healthy, this team could be dangerous again, especially in a weak division. (Albeit one that features the defending NFC champions Cardinals and the improving 49ers.)

Another issue the Hawks could have is in the backfield, where their running back-by-committee approach has been hit and miss. Seattle’s defense is extremely talented, but the unit was an utter disaster last year. Curry and a healthy Patrick Kearney should help and so should Mora, who has a sharp defensive mind. All in all, this could be one of the sleepers in the NFC this year. And at 50/1 odds, you can’t beat that if you’re a bettor.
