The NFL released the 2020 schedule and the Seattle Seahawks’ campaign to re-claim the NFC West opens with a road game against the Falcons. The Seahawks enter the season at +225 to win the division, a spot behind the +115 49ers. Their preseason win total is installed at 9 with -110 odds on both the over and under.

DraftKings Sportsbook posted all the Week 1 point spreads the evening of the schedule release, and they have since added nearly 100 additional games throughout the season. DK does big business in New Jersey and Colorado, so it is no surprise they have all 16 lines for the Giants, Jets, Eagles, and Broncos. However, they have multiple lines for other teams as well. For the Seahawks, we get four additional lines, including an early home game against the new-look Patriots, and a late November road game against the Eagles.

Point spreads

Week 1: @ Falcons (-1)
Week 2: vs. Patriots (-3.5)
Week 12: @ Eagles (+2.5)
Week 13: vs. Giants (-7.5)
Week 14: vs. Jets (-7.5)

Most likely cover

Seattle is -3.5 against the New England Patriots in Week 2. The Patriots will likely have Jarrett Stidham under center. Beating the Seahawks without any elite weapons on the offensive end will be difficult for a quarterback with limited experience. Regardless of how good New England’s defense is, the offense has to make things happen.

Most likely fail to cover

The Seahawks start the season with a tough matchup against the Falcons. They’re favored by a narrow margin (-1) and will face a talented passing attack that features Julio Jones and Calvin Ridley. While Austin Hooper is gone, Matt Ryan has gained a versatile running back in Todd Gurley who can contribute to the offense in more ways than one. Atlanta’s defense improved significantly down the home stretch last season and could present a challenge to the Seahawks.

Line most likely to change

Seattle will take on the Eagles at +2.5 in Week 12, and this matchup could see some movement. Health of the Philadelphia’s receiving corp played a factor for Carson Wentz and the home team, but Russell Wilson has the Eagles’ number. The Seahawks signal caller is 5-0 against Philadelphia in his career.
