Seattle Seahawks Analysis:
The Seahawks finished with a 12-4 record last season, which was good enough to win the NFC West. This year, they are hoping for a deep playoff run, but they still have a few questions on their offensive line and defense, which weren’t good last season.
Seattle averaged 28.6 points per game last season. They threw for 246.3 yards and ran for 123.2 yards per game.
Russell Wilson completed 68.8 percent of his passes for 4,212 yards, 40 touchdowns, and 13 interceptions. He also rushed for 513 yards and four touchdowns. Chris Carson led the team with 681 rushing yards and five touchdowns, while DK Metcalf led the team with 1,303 receiving yards and 10 touchdowns.
Seattle wasn’t very good defensively, giving up 23.2 points per game. They will need to do a better job if they want to make it back to the Super Bowl.

Indianapolis Colts Analysis:
The Colts played well last season and finished with an 11-5 record, which was good for second in the AFC South. They lost quarterback Philip Rivers in the offseason and brought in Carson Wentz as his replacement. They are hoping he can pick up where Rivers left off and lead them to the playoffs.
The Colts averaged 28.2 points per game last season. They threw for 253.3 yard and rushed for 124.8 yards per game.
Wentz completed 57.4 percent of his passes for 2,620 yards, 16 touchdowns, and 15 interceptions last season. Jonathan Taylor led the team with 1,169 rushing yards and 11 touchdowns, while T.Y. Hilton led the team with 762 receiving yards and five touchdowns.
Indianapolis wasn’t very good defensively, giving up 22.6 points per game. They addressed some of their defensive needs in the draft and should be better this season.
Odds and Prediction:
The Seahawks are favored to win this game by 2.5 points. The over/under on total points scored is 48.5.
The Colts have a new quarterback that is still learning the system and didn’t get a lot of action in the preseason, so expect Wentz to be rusty if he plays in this game. They will have a hard time keeping up with the Seahawks, who have a balanced attack and one of the best quarterbacks in the league, so go with Seattle to cover and the under.
