NFL bettingThe Broncos vs Seahawks odds are a matchup of two teams that are both in a bit of disarray right now. The Broncos are an unmitigated disaster at this point with their quarterback issues and their defense, while the Seahawks once again have some injuries creeping up. Even so, online betting cappers should look for the Seahawks to win.



Broncos vs Seahawks odds: Seahawks -3

  • WHAT: NFL betting
  • WHEN: Saturday, August 22nd – 10:00 PM ET
  • WHERE: Qwest Field – Seattle, WA
  • PICK: Seahawks -3


Broncos vs Seahawks odds maker breakdown: Offense

The Broncos offense is a disaster right now with Jay Cutler gone and Kyle Orton running the show. Orton looked horrible in his first preseason game, throwing three interceptions in his first three drives. The Broncos are also thin at wide receiver as Brandon Marshall isn’t interested in playing for the team anymore.

The Seahawks offense has plenty of depth, especially at quarterback where Matt Hasselbeck will be followed by veteran starter Seneca Wallace. There is also ample depth behind starting running back Julius Jones with Justin Forsett and T.J. Duckett to follow.

Betting Edge: Seahawks


Broncos vs Seahawks odds maker breakdown: Defense

NFL betting cappers know that the Broncos had one of the worst defenses in the NFL last year and they probably won’t be much better this year. They are transitioning to the 3-4 and struggled in their opener. Because of the transition, they don’t have a lot of depth.

Meanwhile, the Seahawks have a very talented and underrated defense. Backups like Jordan Babineaux and Kelly Jennings could start for some teams in the league, as could Darryl Tapp and Brandon Mebane. The Seahawks have the clear edge here.

Broncos vs Seahawks odds maker breakdown: Special Teams

Considering both teams have made renovations to their special teams over the last year, neither team is particularly strong on special teams, but overall this matchup is even. The Broncos have the edge in return games with Eddie Royal, but don’t expect them to run him out there considering how thin they are at wide receiver.

Betting Edge: Even


Broncos vs Seahawks odds maker breakdown: Notable Injuries

The Broncos are the healthier team as the Seahawks have some concerns. Left tackle Walter Jones will be out for a while as he will undergo another knee surgery, while top cornerback Marcus Trufant is dealing with a bulging disk in his back and will also miss this contest.

Betting Edge: Broncos


Broncos vs Seahawks betting breakdown: Outlook and Pick

The sportsbook has the Seahawks as a three-point favorite, and in this game, they are clearly the play. They have the better roster and the home field advantage, which will be enough for them to cover the three-point spread.

STAN’S PICK: Seahawks -3
