SEA-IND Free Pick
The Indianapolis Colts will look to stay undefeated on the year when they host the Seattle Seahawks at 1:00PM ET on Sunday.
The Seahawks fell to 1-2 on the year with a 25-19 loss to the Bears as a 2.5-point underdog. Seneca Wallace threw for 261 yards with a touchdown and an interception in the loss, while Nate Burleson caught nine passes for 109 yards.
The Colts improved to 3-0 on the year with a 31-10 win over the Cardinals as a 3-point underdog. Peyton Manning threw for 379 yards with four touchdowns and an interception in the win, while Reggie Wayne caught seven passes for 126 yards and a touchdown.
Oddsmakers from online sports book SPORTSBETTING.com have made the Colts 10-point favorites over the Seahawks. The over/under total for this game has been established at 44.
The Colts are an absolute machine right now and we wouldn’t recommend going against them, especially with Matt Hasselbeck expected to miss another game for Seattle. Manning is on fire and Indy’s defense is playing better than expected.
The Seahawks will struggle to score points in this matchup, while the Colts should wear down Seattle’s defense and cruise to a victory. We recommend taking the favorites in this one, as well as the under since the Hawks will have issues scoring.
Our NFL Week 4 Free Pick for this matchup is: INDIANAPOLIS COLTS –10 and UNDER 44.
215 Seattle Seahawks +10 Over 44
216 Indianapolis Colts –10 Under 44
Seattle is 2-4 ATS in its last 6 games when playing Indianapolis
