Will the Seattle Seahawks go over or under their win total in 2021?

The Seahawks rattled off 12 wins in 2020, and there is reason to believe they can repeat that performance.

NFL: NFC Wild Card Round-Los Angeles Rams at Seattle Seahawks Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

The Seattle Seahawks put together another solid season under Pete Carroll, but their postseason run was short with a Wild Card round loss to the Los Angeles Rams. It was a bit of a rough offseason as Russell Wilson showed his frustration with the franchise, but both sides seem ready to move on and contend for another NFC West title in 2021.

We’ll take a look at the latest DraftKings Sportsbook lines and predict if the Seahawks can beat their 2021 win total. The odds below are as of June 1, 2021.

NFC West win totals

Los Angeles Rams 10.5 (Over +105, Under -129)
San Francisco 49ers 10.5 (Over +107, Under -130)
Seattle Seahawks 9.5 (Over -134, Under +110)
Arizona Cardinals 8 (Over -134, Under +110)

Notable offseason moves

The Seahawks re-signed edge rusher Carlos Dunlap and brought in Kenny Hyder and Aldon Smith in free agency to help their pass rush in 2021. Seattle brought back running back Chris Carson and signed tight end Gerald Everett. The Seahawks traded for guard Gabe Jackson to help protect Russell Wilson.

Seattle will need to replace cornerback Shaquill Griffin, who signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars, as did running back Carlos Hyde. Tight end Greg Olsen and guard Mike Iupati retired.

Seattle had just three picks in the draft, and their first draft choice went to former Western Michigan wide receiver D’Wayne Eskridge in the second round.

Seattle Seahawks prediction: OVER 9.5

Seattle is in an incredibly competitive division with nobody in the NFC West that doesn’t have high expectations for themselves. Still, we can expect the Seahawks to reach this 9.5 win total given their history of success. Since 2012, Seattle secured nine or more wins every season. That’s nine years in a row and with the addition of a 17th game, the Seahawks have a very good shot at reaching double-digit wins yet again.
