Sunday Night Football Betting – Indianapolis Colts at Seattle Seahawks
Well, it wouldn’t necessarily be reasonable to say that the Indianapolis Colts and Seattle Seahawks are equal, although both of them have a 1-2 record at the moment. Admittedly, Seattle sometimes gets out of the gate rather slowly, but they had better start moving, and the Sunday night matchup against the Colts is a pretty good time to do it. He begins at 8:30 PM ET at CenturyLink Field, and as NBC televises it, BetAnySports customers can place their wagers in real time using the state-of-the-art software available through Live Betting Ultra.
The Colts started out the season rather inauspiciously, taking a 46-9 beating at the hands of the Los Angeles Rams. In that game, Scott Tolzien was their quarterback, replacing Andrew Luck, who is injured, but head coach Chuck Pagano figured he had to make a move before things got very rough very quickly. So he turned to Jacoby Brissett, who was acquired just before the end of training camp. Brissett, who pulled a couple of starts with the Patriots last season, has some mobility, so he added an extra dimension. And he was able to lead this team to a 31-28 victory over the Cleveland Browns last week. So he continues to get the opportunity. Brissett, who played at Florida but then later transferred to North Carolina State, is averaging 8.2 yards per attempt, but on 71 passing plays he has been sacked seven times. So obviously making decisions quickly is still a problem for him.
In the Sunday night NFL betting odds that have been posted on this game by the folks at BetAnySports, Seattle is a sizable favorite:
Seattle Seahawks -12.5
Indianapolis Colts +12.5
Over 41.5 points -110
Under 41.5 points -110
We don’t know how long Brissett is going to be at the helm, but we do know this – Seattle’s pass rush will be coming for him. But what’s interesting to note is that unless they start to throw blitzes at the Colts, Seattle may have a hard time catching up to the young man. And observers have to be rather unimpressed by the way Seattle has dealt with opposition running attacks, as they have yielded 5.3 yards per carry.
But can Indianapolis exploit this? They simply don’t run the ball all that well. Frank Gore is averaging only three yards per attempt, and there is that feeling among a lot of people watching closely that he may have hit the “brick wall,” so to speak. So let’s see if TY Hilton can do any damage. He’s got 259 yards thus far, averaging 18.5 yards per catch, and tight end Jack Doyle has also been somebody Brissett has relied on. But when Seattle can put one of the best strong safeties in the NFL on the field in Kam Chancellor, this task becomes very very difficult.
Russell Wilson has not yet been able to make much of a connection with tight end Jimmy Graham, who has only 81 yards through three games. And Wilson is only 57% accurate. But he hasn’t thrown an interception thus far, so that is a at least one encouraging sign. The Colts have allowed 284 passing yards per game, so let’s see if Wilson can have some success taking some chances downfield.
