The marquee NFL Game of the week is easily the matchup between the Seahawks and the Colts. The Colts come in at 3-1 while the Seahawks are undefeated at 4-0. Currently there is a mix of -2.5’s and 3’s on the board, all with various juice, with Seattle being favored. The total at betonline is 43.5.
Both of these teams own wins over the 49ers and the hapless Jaguars. We questioned how good the Colts actually were coming into this year and while the jury is still out, going on the road and handing it to the 49ers earned some respect from us. Sure, the 49ers are having their problems early on, but they are still a talented football team. Note that the Seahawks also handed it to the 49ers.
This could very well be the Seahawks year. Go back in history and look at any Super Bowl team and you’ll likely find a similar pattern of wins. The ball just seems to bouNCe their way. Even when it looks as though they may not be that good, like last week, as quick as the snap of your fingers, they make a comeback and win the Game in OT.
The public can’t make up their mind on these two. The Seahawks have seen 59% of the action this week at 5dimes.com, not a landslide by any means.

Each Game in the NFL is a piece to the puzzle. This Game will tell us a little more about both of these contenders. Our numbers suggest this one will be a close, low scoring Game. That would indicate a play on the Colts, home dogs, might be worth a look. But we’re going to go against Our own numbers here and side with the Seahawks. We’re sticking with Our early season analysis of the Seahawks being the better team. If we’re right, that will play out in this spot as we’d expect last weeks Texans Game to serve as a wake up call for the Seahawks.
The best play in this Game may be the under. You can get under 44 at 5 dimes as of this writing.
