Seahawks look unlikely to run away from Colts

Seattle are still struggling to knit things together

Jacoby Brissett will continue as Indianapolis quarterback
1 of 1

Sky Sports Action, 1.30am Sunday night

Indianapolis claimed their first victory of the season when they beat Cleveland last week, but they remain a team in limbo as they wait for quarterback Andrew Luck to regain fitness.

It had been hoped his troublesome shoulder would have recovered enough for him to take the field at Seattle, but he is still being kept under wraps.

Consequently, how the Colts may fare this season remains a bit of a mystery, particularly as their only victory came by three points against a team who went 1-15 last season and haven't posted a win this term.

Jacoby Brissett makes his first start on the road as Luck's temporary replacement and he can be content with his contribution in the win over the Browns.

They face a team who are going through their own problems and are not guaranteed to cover a handicap that is pushing towards a two-converted-touchdown margin.

The limitations of the Seahawks' offensive line have been well-documented and although quarterback Russell Wilson was able to throw four touchdown passes against Tennessee last week, it was still not enough for them to claim victory.

The atmosphere at CenturyLink Field is a test for any visiting team, but the Seahawks' top receiver Doug Baldwin is an injury doubt and they have not tended to blow away opponents on their own patch in the last couple of seasons.

In their last 17 home matches, they have won by more than this week's handicap mark on six occasions and the standard of opposition in those games - San Francisco twice, the Rams, Cleveland, Carolina and Chicago - has not been great.      

Recommendation
Indianapolis +13.5
