The Seattle Seahawks both won and easily paid out on the Super Bowl betting lines in the NFL's championship game last season, and they'll get a chance to claim a second consecutive title on Sunday, February 1 when they battle the New England Patriots at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.
Seattle throttled Denver 43-8 as the betting underdog in last year's Super Bowl, and they advanced back to the title game with a dramatic 28-22 overtime victory over the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship Game. The Seahawks were 8-point favorites in that contest against the Packers and didn't manage to cover the posted spread at the sportsbooks.
New England won a laugher in the AFC Championship Game, pounding the Indianapolis Colts 45-7 to return to the Super Bowl for the first time since they lost to the New York Giants 21-17 in Super Bowl XLVI. The Patriots last faced the Seahawks in October 2012, falling 24-23 as a 4-point road favorite in that OVER result.
Seattle will face the 14-4 New England Patriots, who own a 10-8 ATS mark on the season. In totals betting, the Seahawks are 10-8 so far this season while the Patriots are 10-8.
