Team Outlook and Scouting Report

SEASON FORECASTS AND FUTURES PICKS

Even before acquiring Jadeveon Clowney we had Seattle as the #7 team in terms of percent chance to win the Super Bowl. After losing Frank Clark, Clowney should help refuel the Seahawks pass rush. Their championship odds are 30/1, 3.2% (#14 best). They win the Super Bowl in 3.6% of simulations which makes them a good betting value. They are also a good bet to win the NFC at 15/1, 6.2%. Their sim chance is 8%. The Seahawks are averaging 8.9 wins per sim which makes them a decent bet to win over 8.5 games. At +150 the Seahawks are a good value to make the playoffs with a 51.5% chance. Their odds of winning their division are 7/2, 22.2%. They win the division in 27.5% of simulations. Their average wins per simulation puts them at #4 in the NFC.
