Seattle Seahawks 2022 Predictions

Tip Reasoning

  • Geno Smith is front-runner for being starting qb
  • Drew Locke is pushing Smith for starting QB position

It’s the end of an era in Seattle, as the Seahawks are without their franchise quarterback, Russell Wilson. for the first time in a long time. After numerous pro-bowls, a couple of super bowl appearances, and winning one super bowl, Russell Wilson is off to Denver to lead the Broncos. How do the Seahawks replace the superstar? Well, they will start with a quarterback competition between two career backups in Geno Smith and Drew Locke. Early reports have it that the job is Geno Smiths to lose, but that will be something to look forward to later in August.

Seattle resigned their superstar wide receiver D.K. Metcalf to an extension, so whoever is at quarterback will have a great target to throw to. Tyler Lockett is a pro-bowl receiver who will help to make up an impressive wide receiver duo in Seattle, but the problem will be whether the new quarterback can duplicate even a percentage of Wilsons success.

The Seahawks are playing in the very competitive NFC West division and will have their hands full competing this year. Two divisional foes, Rams and 49ers, reached the NFC championship last year, with the Rams winning the super bowl. The Arizona Cardinals were also in the playoffs and appear to be improved for 2022. The question will be, how will the Seahawks be able to compete in such a tough division, with what will surely be a big regression at quarterback? The Over/Under for win total for Seattle is 5.5 games and we are taking the Under 5.5 games, as we’re predicting a 5-12 season for Seattle.

Tip Reasoning

Key Stat: Can Seahawks defense improve this season

  • Safety Jamal Adams is unsure about when he will return to action from injured hand
  • Can Pete Carroll get his defenses looking more like they did over 5 years ago
  • Can the O-line improve in pass protection to protect the quarterback?

Our second futures bet we are going to look at is not a pretty one if you’re a Seahawks fan. Will Seattle have the worst regular season record this year? Now, looking at the odds, Seattle has the fourth best odds to have the worst record. We think it’s a bit of a long shot, considering some of the teams look in far worse shape, talent-wise than the Seahawks.

A big part of this bet is the regression you are destined to see at the quarterback position. Neither Geno Smith nor Drew Locke is capable of making an NFL Franchise a contender for the playoffs or better. With a suspect offensive line and a revamped defense that needs to improve, we think it’s worth a look at the big odds for Seattle. Currently, you can get the Seahawks at +1000 to have the worst record! We aren’t predicting this will be the case, but if you were ever looking for some high-end return on a bet this fall, this wager might have a chance.
