Seattle Seahawks Currently 5 1/2 Point Favourites

Published on September 1st, 2014 6:30 pm EST
As of this moment, the Seattle Seahawks, who are the defending Super Bowl champions, are currently 6/1 to win the title for a second straight time. These are the second best odds in the NFL behind the Denver Broncos, who are currently listed at 11/2 to win.

Seattle accomplished the impressive task in the offseason is keeping their core group of superstars intact. Sure, they lost some pieces on defense, but the team espouses a "next man up" policy and has a very deep roster of defensive talents. Seattle managed to keep Richard Sherman and Earl Thomas III and still has a year to figure out the contract for superstar QB Russell Wilson.

In short, the Seahawks will probably not lose much of a step heading into this season, though they do have targets on their backs from the rest of the teams in the NFL.


The first team that will try to spoil the Seahawks' season - the Green Bay Packers, who are currently listed at 9/1 to win the Super Bowl. The Green Bay Packers have a wide array of offensive weapons and are led by the steady arm of Aaron Rodgers.

Can the Packers penetrate the "Legion of Boom" and leave Seattle with a victory this Thursday night?

Here are the odds for Thursday night's contest:

Green Bay Packers, +5.5, 1.90
Seattle Seahawks, -5.5, 1.90

Over 46 Points, 1.90
Under 46 Points, 1.90

Green Bay Straight Up, 3.00
Seattle Straight Up, 1.41

This should be a great game!
