- The Indianapolis Colts are -140 on the moneyline against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 1.
- The Seahawks come back with +120 odds as the underdog.
- Carson Wentz is expected to make his first start with the Colts.
INDIANAPOLIS – The Indianapolis Colts will play host to the Seattle Seahawks in the first week of the 2021 NFL season.
While hitting 9 spreads (of 17) last season, the Colts are listed as 3-point favorites in the matchup as Carson Wentz takes over the starting quarterback job.
However, on their home field, many issues presented themselves. Despite going 6-2 straight up, the Colts were only able to cover their spread three times.
Colts vs Seahawks Betting Odds
- Moneyline: IND -140, SEA +120
- Spread: IND -3
- Total: O/U 52
Kicking off the season against the Seahawks isn't an easy task. Rarely being an away underdog, the Seahawks were 1-1 straight up last season with that backing. Since 2019, the Hawks were 5-3 straight up and against the spread as an away underdog, showing their dominance when being overlooked by the NFL sports betting sites.
The real value then may come in the moneyline, as a three-point spread is never a good sign for the away team.
Historically, away teams as 2.5-3.5 point underdogs are 369-505-1 (42.2%) on the moneyline since 2013.
With odds on the Colts at only -140, playing the home team looks to be the early call.
However, without a full stadium capacity in Indianapolis and the offseason ahead, these NFL betting lines will likely move as training camps and the preseason begin.
