After suffering their first loss of the year to the San Diego Chargers last weekend, the 13-1 Indianapolis Colts face the Seattle Seahawks in Week 16 of the NFL season. The Seahawks (12-2) are currently riding a 10-game winning streak. Bodog bookmakers have posted all the odds for the holiday weekend games.
"This weekend, we are certainly going to see many exciting and unpredictable games," says Calvin Ayre, Founder and CEO of Bodog. "The Hawks-Colts game, after all, may well be a Super Bowl preview."

Will the Colts rest their starters in time for the playoffs? Or, will they look to regain some momentum after last weekend's defeat? The Seattle Seahawks are rated as the top offense in the league and will certainly be hungry for a win in front of their hometown fans.
In a game that has many bookmakers scratching their heads, Saturday's match between the San Diego Chargers (9-5) and Kansas City Chiefs (8-6) should be a close one, with Bodog opening the line as even money. The Chargers, basking in the glory of their latest victory over the Colts, are faced with a tough task as they pay a visit to Arrowhead. The Chiefs haven't lost a game at home since Week 4, and if they intend to make the playoffs, they will have to win their last two games.
Also vying for a playoff spot, the Dallas Cowboys (8-6) will need to win their upcoming game against the NFC South leading Carolina Panthers (10-4) to remain in the race. The Panthers are 5.5-point favorites heading into Saturday's game.
Looking to steal the final wildcard spot for the playoffs, quarterback Michael Vick will need to lead his Atlanta Falcons to a victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this weekend. The Buccaneers and their stout defense will be a tough test for the Falcons, who are looking to avenge their loss to the Bucs in Week 11. The Buccaneers opened as 3-point favorites.
Will the New York Giants (10-4) capture the NFC East title this weekend? Not if the Washington Redskins (8-6) can help it. The Redskins will be looking for revenge after being blown out 36-0 by the Giants in Week 8, and will need to win their next two games to make the playoffs. Washington opened as 3-point favorites.
