Seahawks odds to win the Super Bowl slip a bit

After their 30-23 loss at home to Dallas Sunday, the Seahawks are no longer at the top of Bovada.com’s odds to win the Super Bowl.

The Seahawks have fallen from 4-1 odds to 6-1, while Denver improved from 17-4, 4-1 to move into the top spot.

Dallas, meanwhile, made a huge move going from 28-1 to 12-1.

The 49ers have also made a move up, going from 12-1 to 9-1, tied with San Diego, which is also 9-1, as the next two teams after Denver and Seattle.

The Seahawks are still the favorite to win the NFC and get to the Super Bowl, at 11-4, followed by the 49ers (9-2), Packers (11-2) and Dallas (13-2).

Seattle also remains a 6-5 favorite to win the NFC West.

Russell Wilson, meanwhile, has fallen to 20-1 to win MVP honors — DeMarco Murray is the favorite at 7-2 followed by Peyton Manning (4-1), Andrew Luck (13-2) and Aaron Rodgers (10-1).

In another sign of how this season is trending a little differently than might have been expected, three of Seattle’s five games this season have gone over on the over-under (details here). Last year,  just seven of 19 games, including playoffs, went over, including a streak of seven in a row that went under until the Super Bowl, which topped the over of 47.5 due to Seattle’s 43-point outburst.

And the SportsChatPlace is already predicting that this week’s game at St. Louis will top the over/under of 43.
