Seattle Seahawks vs. Indianapolis Colts Odds

Seattle Seahawks vs. Indianapolis Colts odds were listed at Colts -10.  Indianapolis was getting over 80 percent of the action in this game.

There shouldn't be a whole lot of action on the Seahawks vs. Colts game due to the fact that odds were not posted until later in the week because of the injury questions in Seattle.   When the line did open, the number was on -11.

Doug Kretz of Scouts.com explains just how serious the injury situation is in Seattle right now:

"With the injury issues the Seahawks experienced last year, the last thing they need is a repeat of that nightmare. All-Pro left tackle Walter Jones has yet to play a regular-season game, QB Matt Hasselbeck missed the Chicago game with a bruised sternum and starting linebackers Lofa Tatupu and Leroy Hill are nursing injuries and have missed time. Jones and Hasselbeck should return shortly and that will help but this team needs to start playing with confidence and abandon."

Seneca Wallace, starting for an injured Matt Hasselbeck last week, finished 26 for 44 for 261 yards with a touchdown and an interception.

The Colts are starting to look red hot meanwhile, scorching the Cardinals last week by a score of 31-10 on the road.

Peyton Manning threw for 379 yards and four touchdowns, the eighth time he's had 300-plus yards and four touchdowns in a game. That's tied for second most since the 1970 merger.

Dallas Clark caught a 10-yard touchdown pass, his 19th since 2007 which leads NFL tight ends.

The Colts entered the game ranked 30th in rushing at 66.0 per game but had 122, their most since Oct. 28, 2007.

"The thing is that we constantly have to make certain that we don't take it for granted," coach Jim Caldwell said of Manning's performances. "He's had some just unbelievable games. ... I think he amazes us every time he does it, but he does it so often if you don't watch yourself you can think that it's commonplace, but it certainly is not."

Seattle destroyed the Colts the last time these two teams met in 2005 a score of 28-13.

Some important Seattle Seahawks vs. Indianapolis Colts odds trends to consider:

The Seahawks are 8-3-1 ATS in their last 12 games following an ATS loss.

The Seahawks are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 road games vs. a team with a winning home record.

The Colts are 3-9-1 ATS in their last 13 games following a ATS win.

The Colts are 2-10-1 ATS in their last 13 games after allowing more than 250 yards passing in their previous game.

Indianapoiis is 0-6 ATS in their last 6 games following a SU win of more than 14 points.

Herein lies the problem, the Colts have a tendency not to cover.  And we don't dare bet the Seahawks with their injury situation.  The Colts are getting pretty hot though.
