Although the Seattle defense ranked in the top of the NFL this year for scoring and holding opponents to just 172-passing yards per game, Vegas and online sportsbooks doubt the squad will be able to do the same against the potent Denver offense this Sunday. Super Bowl predictions for the championship game currently have the Seahawks as 3-point underdogs to hoist the Lombardi trophy in victory this weekend. With the "legion of boom" already longshots to win the title game, there are numerous Seattle Seahawks prop bets for player and team accomplishments that could turn a substantial betting profit. Let's take a look at a few of these scenarios for Sunday's game.
Despite Seattle QB Russell Wilson throwing for 26-touchdowns during the regular season, the 2nd year pro from Wisconsin has been able to muster only 1-TD in the playoffs. Luckily for the boys and blue, RB Marshawn Lynch has continued to bruise offensive lines recording 3-touchdowns in just two postseason games. Will Wilson and Lynch or the Seattle defense be able to score the first points of the game? Sportsbooks don't think so, posting the Seattle Seahawks at -105 to score the first points of the championship on Sunday. Think you know what type of score it will be? Seattle Seahawks prop bets are offering a price of 2/1 on a pass or rushing touchdown to be the first score of the game followed by a field-goal at 7/4 with a defensive or special teams touchdown paying out 15/2 and a safety at 20/1.
There is plenty of talent on both sides of the field for Seattle which shows when handicapping the winner of the most valuable player award. On the offense, Wilson and Lynch have been posted as 15/4 betting favorites to win the MVP award followed by Percy Harvin at 16/1, Golden Tate at 33/1 with Doug Baldwin and Earl Thomas at 40/1. Think a Seahawks defensive player will win the most valuable player of the game? If so, Richard Sherman would payout a price of 20/1, Kam Chancellor would return 75/1 with Michael Bennett at 100/1. Gamblers have made a decent profit on Seattle this year going 12-6 ATS defeating opponents by an average of 11.7-points per game. That being said, choosing the exact margin of victory by the Seahawks could prove to be a profitable wager. Super Bowl predictions have Seattle winning by 1-6 points favored at 15/4 followed by 7-12 points at 5/1, 13-18 points at 8/1 and 19-24 points at 16/1.
