We wrap up our NFL division betting previews with a look at the NFC West.Russell_Wilson seahawks odds

The disparity between the two teams at the top of this division and the two teams at the bottom is stark. The Seahawks and Cardinals are among the Super Bowl favorites and have been assigned double-digit season win totals by Las Vegas bookmakers. Meanwhile, not much is expected from the Rams and 49ers, both priced at 100/1 odds to lift the Lombardi Trophy next February in Houston.

Here are futures odds, win totals and a quick outlook for the four teams in NFC South.

Seattle Seahawks

Season win total: 10.5 (-125 over, +105 under )
Odds to win NFC West: 5/6
Odds to win Super Bowl: 8/1
2015 records: (10-6 SU, 8-7-1 ATS, 7-9 O/U)
Skinny: Pete Carroll has led the Seahawks to four straight double-digit win seasons and two Super Bowl appearances. Russell Wilson continues to improve and has more weapons in his arsenal than ever, and the defense will no doubt be nasty again. But the oddsmakers aren’t making it easy to bet on Seattle in the futures or win-total markets, and this will surely continue on a week-to-week basis with point spreads. Don’t bet ’em blindly.

Arizona Cardinals

Season win total: 10 (-150 over, +130 under )
Odds to win NFC West: 5/4
Odds to win Super Bowl: 8/1
2015 records: (13-3 SU, 9-7 ATS, 9-7 O/U)
Skinny: Carroll has company in Bruce Arians, as the Cardinals have won 10, 11 and 13 games, progressively, in his three seasons in charge. But after two straight 11-5 ATS seasons, the betting market has caught up to Arizona. If you missed the boat, don’t try to catch up and ride the Cardinals every week. The bookies are on to you.

Los Angeles Rams

Season win total: 7.5 (+175 over, -200 under )
Odds to win NFC West: 10/1
Odds to win Super Bowl: 100/1
2015 records: (7-9 SU, 7-8-1 ATS, 4-12 O/U)
Skinny: Those odds on ‘over’ 7.5 wins sure look tempting, but do you really see an 8-win season behind rookie QB Jared Goff or Case Keenum? Jeff Fisher hasn’t won 8 games in a season since 2009 in Tennessee. Watch these guys when they’re getting points in their new L.A. digs, though, as they were 10-6 ATS as home underdogs under Fisher’s four years in St. Louis.

San Francisco 49ers

Season win total: 5.5 (-120 over , +100 under )
Odds to win NFC West: 30/1
Odds to win Super Bowl: 100/1
2015 records: (5-11 SU, 7-9 ATS, 7-9 O/U)
Skinny: Chip Kelly couldn’t get it done with a far more talented group in Philadelphia than he inherits in San Fran. We’ll see how the season progress, though, and try to pick some play-on and play-against spots. They open the season as 2.5-point dogs at home against the Rams in the second game of the Week 1 Monday night doubleheader, a matchup where neither side offers much appeal.
