Seahawks Win Total Projection Over/Under Set At 7.5

The Russell Wilson hype machine is in full force but the National Football Post's Joe Fortenbaugh isn't buying it.

The LVH sets the over/under on the Seahawks at 7.5 (+115) but Fortenbaugh thinks that Wilson's early success and eventual impact on the Seahawks is overblown.

Here's what he had to say:

Time to put my money where my mouth is. I've got nothing against Russell Wilson as a person. He's dedicated, hard-working and intelligent. But I believe he's a vastly overrated quarterback and I think the twitter universe is putting way too much emphasis on what he's done in meaningless preseason games. ...I'm going to sit tight for a few days to see if the hype forces oddsmakers to adjust north before I lock this one in, but rest assured, I'm making this play.

So the question is: Would you take the over or the under with Wilson at quarterback?
