The Hawks have been one of the favorites to win the Super Bowl all season, however now that they are one step closer, their price has dropped significantly. Currently, the NFL Odds have the Hawks as +190 to win the Super Bowl, after having them at +250 just a week ago. Let’s take a deeper look into their update odds, and see if there is any value left.
The Hawks haven’t been more than 4/1 to win the Super Bowl all season it seems, and now they are finally below 2/1 after their impressive win over the Saints. They face their toughest adversary yet, and even if they are successful this week against the 49ers, there still looms a long road trip to play in a stadium far away from the friendly confines of Century Link Field. Even though I really like their chances of going to the Super Bowl, their NFL Odds to win it are pretty over inflated. They are a solid favorite over the 49ers this week, but the Niners are playing some of their best football of the season, and from what I saw from Seattle this year, the team that’s playing right now is not at their peak. The Percy Harvin injury scares me as well, and I think it could lead to the passing game advantage going to the Niners.
Neither team will likely be able to run the ball on one another, which means that through the air might be the only way to move the ball. If that’s the case, it’s a big advantage to the 49ers. The one thing the Niners have that the Hawks don’t is a potentially high flying passing attack, and it could lead to the Seahawks not being the play in the future odds.
