SEATTLE, WA (The Spread) – The Seattle Seahawks got some good news on Monday, as two of the top defenders on their unit are expected to play in Super Bowl XLIX.

Both Richard Sherman and Earl Thomas were injured during Sunday’s NFC Championship Game against the Green Bay Packers. Sherman suffered an elbow sprain that was clearly bothering him while Thomas suffered a dislocated shoulder during the first half.

Despite the injuries to both players on Sunday, neither injury is considered serious enough to keep either one from playing in Super Bowl XLIX against the New England Patriots.

According to oddsmakers from BetDSI the Seahawks are actually the underdog in next weekend’s game. Seattle is getting odds of +1 points against the Patriots in Super Bowl XLIX, while the over/under total is currently set at 48.5 points.

Bet on Super Bowl XLIX Odds

Sherman had 57 tackles and four interceptions during the season, but he has one interception in each of Seattle’s two playoff games this year. Thomas had 97 tackles and one interceptions this season. He had 11 tackles against the Panthers two weeks ago and five in the NFC Championship against the Packers.
