Sunday Night Football Betting Pick: Colts at Seahawks

Updated: October 1, 2017

Sunday Night Football is here again with a matchup that doesn’t exactly make anyone perk up with excitement. But from a bettors perspective, the matchup is much less important than getting the win.

In what was supposed to be a big-time quarterback matchup of Andrew Luck vs Russel Wilson we instead get Jacoby Brissett vs a Seattle offense that has struggled mightily so far this season currently ranking 26th in the NFL averaging just 16 points per game. The line currently sits at Seattle -12.5 at most offshore shops after opening with Seattle as a -11.5 point favorite. The total is currently at 41.5 after opening at 41.¬†Colts will continue to be with Andrew Luck (injury) while Seahawks will have game-time decision on star wide receiver Doug Baldwin. In Luck’s absence, Jacoby Brissett will make his first road start for the Colts.

First thought is what has Seattle favored almost 13 points when they have failed to reach that total in 2 of their opening 3 games this season. Second thought, they are desperate and the Colts are probably just what the Seahawks need at home. Seattle finally puts a showing on the board fans can be proud of. Seahawks 27 Colts 13
