Seahawks favored by three: Will Seattle be an underdog in any game this season?

The opening lines for this week’s games are out, and VegasInsider.com shows the Seahawks generally favored by three points (a couple of lines have it at 2.5) for Sunday’s 10 a.m. contest at Indianapolis.

It is the fifth straight week Seattle has been favored, and as you can see here, the Seahawks are not only 4-0 on the field but also against the spread.

It’s tempting to wonder if the spread for this week’s game would  have been much different had Seattle not come back, and the game ended up with the Texans winning by 10-14 points or so, as it appeared could be the case through the first three quarters.

Instead, Seattle did rally, is now 4-0 and is favored on the road against a solid Colts team.

And that makes you wonder if Seattle will be an underdog in any game this season.

They unquestionably won’t be in any of the six remaining home games. And after the Indy game, none of the remaining road games come against teams that currently have winning records with the Giants and Falcons being mysteriously bad so far— San Francisco, in fact, is the only one of those five teams that doesn’t have a losing record, standing at 2-2.

As things stand today, the only game you’d think Seattle has a chance to be an underdog in the rest of the way is that Dec. 8 contest at San Francisco. Obviously, though, things can change quickly in the NFL. For now, Seattle will simply enjoy being 4-0 and looking to Sunday.
