SEATTLE – If you’re loving the Seattle Seahawks’ chances this season, you’re not alone.
As of Tuesday afternoon, Las Vegas bookmakers had the Seahawks at 10-1 odds to claim their second Lombardi trophy.
The only team listed with better odds was the New England Patriots at 15-2, though the Green Bay Packers were also listed at 10-1.
Seattle plays its first preseason game Saturday in Kansas City at 1:30 p.m. The game will be televised on the home of the Seahawks, Q13 FOX.
Vegas expects Seattle to face stiff competition in the NFC West, as the Arizona Cardinals barely trail at 11-1. The rest of the division isn’t looking quite so hot; the L.A. Rams came in at 60-1, and the San Francisco 49ers were listed at an awful 100-1.
The Cleveland Browns are expected to be the worst team in the NFL, with 200-1 odds against them winning the Super Bowl.
