The 3-0 Indianapolis Cots have looked very impressive this year. The same cannot be said for the 1-2 Seattle Seahawks. The Seahawks will be without starting quarterback Matt Hasselbeck (broken ribs) and will again put the ball in the hands of Seneca Wallace. On the other side of the ball, Mr. Consistent, Peyton Manning, is off to another MVP type year. Manning has thrown for over 300 yards passing in each of his three games this season. He has seven TDs and two interceptions and boasts a quarterback rating of 117.7. This will be the teams’ first meeting since Dec. 24, 2005, when Seattle won 28-13 at home. Kickoff for this one is at 1:00PM ET at Lucas Oil Stadium. Below are your betting lines, trends and predictions.

Colts vs Seahawks Predictions:
Spread – Quarterback play in the NFL is directly correlated with winning or losing. Seneca Wallace has done a good job so far filling in for Matt Hasselbeck, but at the end of the day he is not at the same level. The high powered Colts offense will put up big numbers on less than stellar Seahawks defense. Seattle has given up a total of 48 points in two losses after winning their opener. 13. Opposing quarterbacks have completed better than 74.0 percent (40 for 54) of their passes in the Seahawks’ last two games. Bet the Colts to cover this 10 point spread.
Over/Under –Seneca Wallace set career highs with 26 completions, 44 attempts and 261 yards against the Bears last week. Indianapolis’ defense hasn’t been consistent as their offense, and they will be playing without their best pass rusher in Dwight Freeney. Seattle has play makers on offense with Jones at tailback who is averaging 4.9 yards/carry. The Colts offense will put up a ton of points. Take the OVER 44 total points on this one – look for a decently high scoring game.
