Oddsmaker sets Peyton Manning’s passing yardage total at 323.5

The Seahawks have allowed two passers to exceed 300 yards all season.

Peyton Manning, meanwhile, has thrown for more than 300 yards in 13-of-18 combined regular-season and postseason starts.

What we have here is a compelling matchup — and the ingredients for the sort of proposition bet Nevada sports books love to post this time of year.

In numbers released Friday, oddsmaker William Hill U.S. set Manning’s Super Bowl yardage at 323.5. Bettors can either take Manning to throw for more or less than the posted yardage.

Back on September 29, Texans quarterback Matt Schaub threw for 355 yards in a wild 23-20 overtime loss to Seattle. That’s the high-water mark for passing yards against the Seahawks this season. Only one other quarterback — the Saints’ Drew Brees — has exceeded 300 gross passing yards against Seattle.

Manning, for the record, has averaged 339.3 yards in his starts this season.

Outside of the on-field matchup, there’s the matter of the weather in New Jersey on Super Sunday.

    Hammer the Under. The playing conditions will resemble something like the Donner Party experienced in the 19th century.

    That would be a good mark if this was in a dome.

    Peyton’s passing game is gonna make Seattle’s defense disappear like Roanoke’s first settlers.

    Sherman, Chancellor, Thomas III, and Maxwell are going to shut that down all day. Denver has no chance of putting up points, game belongs to Seattle.
    GO HAWKS!!!

    Manning is great and 325 yards does sound fair… but don’t forget: Drew Brees had over 125 yards passing in the 4th quarter because was playing from behind and had to try to put up two quick scores. But honestly I think Manning could really have a game like he had in New England (150 yards passing or so, two touchdowns). Put me down for a 4th quarter pick-6 by Richard Sherman he is will unanimously be the Super Bowl MVP.

    He will make it the worst beating in Super Bowl history.the shehawks and their peds can’t stop it.Vikings>shehawks

  7. thealmightybigblue says: Jan 25, 2014 10:22 PM

    Lol jk it will be a good game.

  8. thevikesarebest says: Jan 25, 2014 10:23 PM

    The vikings are better than seahawks!!!!

  9. thevikesarebest says: Jan 25, 2014 10:24 PM

    The Ped hawks will lose as usual!!!

  10. thevikesarebest says: Jan 25, 2014 10:25 PM

    The seahawks are no match

  11. osiris33 says: Jan 25, 2014 10:33 PM

    Take the under! He’ll be lucky to throw for 250, much less over 300.

  12. olddirtytruth says: Jan 25, 2014 10:34 PM

    If they were playing in nice weather or a dome I would put it closer to 400 yds. But with the chance of bad weather 323 sounds about right.

  13. ialwayswantedtobeabanker says: Jan 25, 2014 10:45 PM

    Anyone remember what happened to “Air Coryell” and the high-flying Chargers aerial attack of 1981 tried to compete in Cincy in January of ’82?

    Dump all your couch cushion money on the Under? I can’t believe that number is so high. 323 yards passing??? Stop the insanity — the bookies are printing free money.

  14. 12thmangohawks says: Jan 25, 2014 10:47 PM

    Wow, your all idiots! Peyton will be lucky to get more than 100. Seattle is the best city in America by far and has the hottest and greatest team in the nfl. Vikings are a joke, actually all other teams are inferior compared to the hawks. Haters are morons!
    GO HAWKS!!!

  15. rainmaker1982 says: Jan 25, 2014 11:31 PM

    That’s really generous in those conditions. Take the under.

  16. dtm1088 says: Jan 26, 2014 12:20 AM

    I’m not so certain the weather is going to hurt them that much. This offense is all about the YAC. A lot of bubble screens and rub routes underneath. The Seattle defense may slow them down but I’m not thinking the weather will.

    Over or under, Denver still loses. Over makes the score closer.

  18. usdcoyotesfan says: Jan 26, 2014 2:12 AM

    Classic case of “something’s got to give.”

  19. jersey73 says: Jan 26, 2014 6:45 AM

    T.Y. Hilton says the Seattle secondary isn’t that great.

  20. noladat says: Jan 26, 2014 10:01 AM

    Drew threw for 300 in a driving rain with 30 mph wind. No matter how much snow or cold they have it will not be as hard as that game.

    The saints skill players are good but the broncos are great. The Seahawks are in for a long day. Bet the over.

  21. the8man says: Jan 26, 2014 10:38 AM

    Not happening. The temps will be brutal and he isn’t mobile enough to keep that Seahawk defense honest.

    Kaepernick had only 283 total yards and that was because he ran for 130 of them.

    Take the under and the Hawks.

    The weather isn’t going to be a factor at all, simply because Manning has been a pro long enough to have seen, AND PLAYED IN every type of weather condition, and so he knows how to prepare for it. Also, it is more than likely that he has put up over 300 yards against every team in the NFL that he has played against, at one time or another. It is also quite possible that Peyton Manning will retire with a very large percentage of the populous considering him the greatest quarterback of all time. All of that being said, IF his O-line gives him the protection that he needs, IMO, it won’t be squat for him to chuck it for at least 300. He’s got the experience, (including the Super Bowl stage), he’s definitely got the savvy and the swagger, (but he’s humble about it). Peyton Manning is also a very smart, possibly the smartest QB ever…the kind of “comes along once in a generation” quarterback that can routinely throw a 300+ yard game. I’ll stick with the over, AND Denver wins 34-31.

    Manning 2-5 when< 30°.

  24. frostymugobeer says: Jan 26, 2014 4:49 PM

    it’s going to be 20 degrees warmer than what manning has been practicing in.
    the weather wont have much impact on the game (so stop wishing it will Seattle fans).
    this is going to be a simple game… If the Broncos don’t cough up the ball more than once….they win !
    Broncos offense is too strong for Seattle.

    If Manning gets happy feet or the RB’s get sloppy Seattle has a good chance to capitalize.

    But, the Broncos should win based on ability to score points. (that’s period)

  25. orangecrush823 says: Jan 26, 2014 8:34 PM

    12thmangohawks is delusional.. All you Seahawks fans think your team is invincible.
    Short memories I suppose.. Remember a team fro Arizona? 192 total yards ain’t gonna cut it against Manning, Moreno, D. Thomas, J. Thomas, Decker, Welker, Tamme, Ball, Caldwell, Holliday…
    Sherman may be good but he can’t cover everybody..

  26. realitycheckbaby says: Jan 26, 2014 10:29 PM

    Denver fans are funny.

    Manning couldn’t even best 300 vs their defense twice.

    Y’all going to be crying.
