Colts at Seahawks: Vegas Spread, Analysis and Picks
Las Vegas likes the Seahawks to win by about two touchdowns when they face the Colts on Sunday Night Football, but can Indianapolis find a way to keep it close?
According to SportsbookReview.com, the Seahawks opened as 11.5-point favorites over the Colts. Bettors have been all over Seattle throughout the week, and have steamed the line up to about 13 points at most sports books.
The Colts have played well as an underdog since making the decision to start Jacoby Brissett over Scott Tolzien.
They covered the spread as 7-point underdogs against the Cardinals in Week 2, and nearly pulled off the outright upset in overtime. Indianapolis was also a slight underdog against Cleveland last week, but won the game 31-28.
The Colts had the home-field advantage in both of those games, but they will now be traveling to one of the league’s toughest environments in Seattle.
Brissett will be making the first road start of his professional career on Sunday night, and it remains to be seen how he will handle a hostile crowd of Seattle fans.
Pick: Colts +13

We’ve gone 3-0 on our picks against the spread this season, and we’re rolling with the underdog again this week.
The Seahawks are clearly the superior team, but it’s hard to see them scoring enough points to cover this spread.
Seattle’s offensive line has really struggled, and the Colts have enough talent along the defensive line to exploit that weakness and make Russell Wilson‘s life miserable.
I don’t think the Colts have a great chance of winning the game, but I can definitely see them keeping the game within 7-10 points.
