The Colts have started the season at 3-0 and the last victory was the most impressive as they routed the Arizona Cardinals in football betting on the road. NFL betting has the Colts a solid favorite this week at home as they host the Seattle Seahawks.
NFL betting has seen the Colts get better each week this season. “Overall, the thing that we’re pleased with is the fact we’ve been improving every week,” head coach Jim Caldwell said, “We’re getting a little better, and getting to the point where we think we’re a pretty consistent-performing team.”
The Colts are the class of the AFC South and they already lead the division by two games over Jacksonville and Houston and by three games over last year’s champs, the Tennessee Titans. Indianapolis is one of seven remaining unbeaten teams in the league. “Live I’ve said before, I think everybody understands how difficult this game is, and how tough it is to win a game, period, in this league,” Caldwell said, “All the 3-0 start has done is ensure we won’t go 2-14. We still have a lot of work to do.” Peyton Manning has been great so far this season for the Colts. He is the AFC’s leading passer, having completed 66 of 96 passes for 983 yards and seven touchdowns.
The question for the Seahawks in this game will be the status of their starting quarterback Matt Hasselbeck. He did not play last week due to a cracked rib and although Seneca Wallace had his moments, the Seahawks lost 25-19 to the Bears in NFL betting. Seattle played without eight starters in the NFL betting loss to the Bears.
Seattle has really struggled in NFL betting in October. They are a putrid 6-21 ATS in their last 27 games in October. Conversely, the Colts have been very good in NFL betting in October. They are 7-2 ATS in their last 9 games in October. The one concern if you take the Colts in football betting is that they are just 3-8 ATS in their last 11 home games.
If you like the total in football betting you will want to know that the Under is 8-3-1 in the Seahawks last 12 games overall and the Under is 5-2 in the Colts last 7 football betting home games.
