Seattle Seahawks Odds to Win 2011 Super Bowl

Coming into the Wildcard Playoffs, the Seattle Seahawks odds to win the 2011 Super Bowl were set at 100/1, which would result in a $10,000 payout on every $100 bet. 

Nobody expected the Seahawks to win the Super Bowl, but nobody expected them to beat the reigning Super Bowl champions New Orleans Saints either.

That’s exactly what happened on Saturday in the first game of the Wildcard Playoffs.  Seattle shocked New Orleans with a 41-36 with one of the biggest upsets in Playoffs history.  The Saints were a 10.5-point road favorite against the 7-9 Seahawks.  No team had ever made the Playoffs with a losing record before Seattle. 

The Seahawks had not performed well after having a Straight Up win coming into this game, where they were 5-16 Against The Spread.  As an underdog, Seattle was 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games.  They were 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games as an underdog of 10.5 or greater.  The Seahawks were also 6-19-1 ATS vs. a team with a winning record coming into this game.  It should be noted that New Orleans is now 1-9 ATS vs. a team with a losing record.

Bookmakers made out somewhat well on this game with 60 percent of the betting action on the Saints spread.  Around 20 percent of the money line action was on Seattle with a payout of over $40 for every $10 bet thanks to the Seahawks stunning outright win. This game, with a final score of 41-36, went way OVER the total set by oddsmakers, 44.5.  Around 65 percent of the betting action was on the OVER. 

Seattle will play either Atlanta or Chicago next week.
