Four Seahawks’ Props Worth Investing In For Super Bowl XLVIII

Posted by Stan Simmons on 2/2/2014 8:00:50 AM

Super Bowl XLVIII will encompass the classic battle between offense and defense, as Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos’ top-ranked attack will clash with Richard Sherman and the Seattle Seahawks’ top-ranked defense. Sherman stole the spotlight with his post-game rants after the NFC Championship game, but now he will have to answer the bell with it solely on him, and Manning throwing passes to the receivers he is trying to cover. The Seahawks have certainly answered the challenges they have faced to this point in the year, and that has led to a handful of Super Bowl 48 betting prop bets that stand out heading in to Super Bowl week.

There are Super Bowl prop bets for nearly everything that will be a part of the game, from the coin toss to the time length for the national anthem, and more. The one prop bet that stands out from the rest in regards to Seattle is the team point total for the game. The Seahawks’ number is listed at 22.5, meaning they would have to score 23 or more points in order to go over the total. The Seattle offense has had its share of highs and lows throughout the year, but Russell Wilson and Marshawn Lynch have made this group more consistent than most. The Seahawks may not score six touchdowns in this game, but three touchdowns and a field goal is definitely a strong sports betting possibility.

Another prop to like is the first half total, which takes from the prop above. The Seahawks’ first-half total is listed at just 10.5 points, a mark they will be able to top with a pair of touchdowns. That number will be very important heading in to the game, especially if it drops below 10. Seattle should be able to score against this Denver defense, so it makes sense to be on the first-half over as well.

A lot of the official numbers from player prop bets haven’t been released yet because of the unknown weather heading in to the week of the Super Bowl, but one player for Seattle that is definitely worth a close look at is Lynch. The Seahawks will try to pound the rock and keep it out of Manning’s hands as much as possible, and with the potential for winter conditions including snow, Lynch should get a ton of touches. Keep an eye out for Lynch’s total rushing yards prop, as it could have very good value.

The final prop worth investing in based on the weather is the field goals kicked by Seattle. Pete Carroll decided to attempt a 50-plus yard field goal in the NFC Championship game despite his kicker saying it was a bad idea, but he may think better of it this online betting week with the snow and heavy winds affecting the potential for field goals. The Seahawks’ field goal total is listed at 1.5, and the Under is definitely worth considering as the kickoff nears.
