The San Francisco 49ers are popular with NFL bettors, as they are the second betting choice from the NFC to reach the Super Bowl behind the defending conference champion Philadelphia Eagles.
However, another team is drawing more betting action at BetMGM to win the NFC West.
Say hello to the Seattle Seahawks, a team that has won the division title twice in the past seven seasons (2016, 2020).

Bettors are hoping to get a repeat performance from quarterback Geno Smith and the overachieving Seahawks. Entering the 2022 regular season, Seattle was tied with the New York Jets for the third-lowest Over/Under win total of 5.5.
The Seahawks traded longtime starter Russell Wilson to Denver and received Drew Lock, the No. 42 pick in 2019, and multiple draft picks.
Lock was expected to replace Wilson as Seattle’s starting QB, but Smith won the job in camp. Seattle started 2-3, but a four-game winning streak moved them Over 5.5 wins in Week 9 and Smith was named Comeback Player of the Year.
The Seahawks O/U is set at 8.5 this season.
