Seattle Seahawks Expecting Troubles At A Super Bowl Shot

  • The Seattle Seahawks have +2000 odds to win Super Bowl 56.
  • The Seahawks have not made it past the divisional round of the playoffs in their last five playoff runs.

SEATTLE – The Seattle Seahawks might be known around the league as a force to be reckoned with, but there is reason to stay away from the hype that surrounds their Super Bowl 56 odds.

Currently, NFL sportsbooks have them listed with the ninth-shortest odds to win at +2000. While it sits above plenty of other deserving teams, money can be made potentially betting on another team with longer or shorter odds.

Seahawks Playoff Struggles

Since 2010, the Seattle Seahawks have made it to the NFL playoffs nine times which has led them to two Super Bowl appearances and a Super Bowl victory in 2013. However, since their Super Bowl loss in 2014, they have not been able to get back to where they used to be.

In the last six years since the Seahawks lost that Super Bowl, they have yet to make it past the divisional round in the playoffs. They also sit in arguably the toughest division in all of the NFL inside the NFC West, where they have seen two or more teams make the playoffs in each of the last three seasons.

With that said, it is clear that the organization as a whole still has not gotten over their Super Bowl loss, which could still affect them if they make the 2021 playoffs.

Struggles On Defense

The Seahawks defense has been nothing short of atrocious against the passing game in recent years and this is going to be a major reason as to why they will not win the Super Bowl. From 2018-2020, they finished in the bottom 10 in opposing passing yards allowed.

Just last season in 2020, they finished the season with the second-most passing yards allowed in the league. They were also the worst in history through the first three weeks of the season, as they allowed more than 1,200 passing yards in the opening weeks last year.

If the Seahawks do make the Super Bowl though, recent trends are not on their side. Only one of the last six Super Bowl champions (Chiefs, Super Bowl LIV) allowed more passing yards than their opponent during regular season play.
