Seattle Seahawks 2023 NFL Season Betting Guide

By Hank Blaine

Most believed the Seattle Seahawks would end last season with one of the league’s worst records. The defense was a disaster, the Seahawks had traded franchise quarterback Russell Wilson to the Denver Broncos, and Seattle was supposed to be in a rebuild phase. But Pete Carroll and the Hawks had other ideas. Seattle finished their season losing in the playoffs. Will the Seahawks again compete for the postseason? How will Seattle perform straight up and against the spread? We analyze and make predictions for the 2023 Seattle Seahawks.

Seattle Seahawks 2023 Straight-Up Overview

Seattle’s surprising season happened because up until 2022, Geno Smith had been a backup quarterback. Smith had bided his time with the New York Jets. But in 2022, Smith leaped to QB stardom.

After beating out Drew Lock during the offseason, Geno dominated defenses, throwing for 4,282 yards and 30 touchdowns to just 11 interceptions. Smith completed close to 70% of his passes during the regular season.

It all came together for Geno, who finally got a chance to not only start, but to also throw to a devastating group of receivers led by D.K. Metcalf and burner Tyler Lockett. In April, the Hawks chose arguably the top WR in the draft in Ohio State’s Jaxon Smith-Njigba.

If Smith-Njigba is what Carroll envisions, Metcalf and Lockett should have more room to catch Smith passes this season. When the Seahawks decide to go to the rushing attack, few are as talented as second-year pro Kenneth Walker III. Also, the offensive line is good. Left tackle Charles Cross is already one of the best in the league.

Seattle’s offense will rock. The defense is another story. The Seahawks improved by using their first round one pick on Devon Witherspoon. But if you can’t get a push up front, even a talented corner like Witherspoon will struggle.

Someone must step it up on the D-line or at linebacker. Knowing this, Carroll resigned Bobby Wagner, a Seattle defensive legend. Wagner bolted the Emerald City for the Rams before last season. Bobby’s return upgrades the Seahawks defense, but he may not be enough because Seattle’s schedule isn’t easy.

The Seahawks must rely on their offense to beat teams like San Francisco, Cincinnati, Baltimore, and Philadelphia. It won’t be easy. At the end, the Seahawks post a winning record by the slimmest of margins, going 9-8 with two losses to the rival 49ers, and losses to the Bengals, Ravens, Cowboys, Lions, Giants, and Eagles.

Seattle Seahawks 2023 SU Record Prediction: 9-8

Seattle Seahawks 2023 Against the Spread Overview

Seattle went 7-10 against the spread last season. The Seahawks won’t knock it out of the park, but they should win two more games against the spread.

The Seahawks may win the same games straight up that they win ATS. We have the feeling oddsmakers have a good idea of the lines to set for Seattle games. The Seahawks go 9-8 against the spread.

Seattle Seahawks ATS Record Prediction: 9-8

Seattle Seahawks 2023 Over/Under Overview

Even though oddsmakers had no idea how well Geno Smith was going to play, they still managed fair over under total lines on Seattle games. The over under total went 8-9 in Seattle games last season.

A similar over under record should happen in 2023. However, Seattle could flip from 8-9 to 9-8.

Seattle Seahawks 2023 Over/Under Record Prediction: 9-8
