The Indianapolis Colts odds to win the 2014 Super Bowl were set at 40/1 at Bookmaker. Their 2013 regular season win totals betting odds were at OVER/UNDER 7.5 with the OVER being a huge -170 favorite. The UNDER would pay $15 for every $10 bet and does have some value.
There is every reason to believe the Colts will play under .500 football this upcoming season, USA Today Sports suggests.
“QB Andrew Luck will improve in his sophomore campaign, but the team around him won’t. The Colts also need to replace offensive coordinator Bruce Arians, who led the team while Chuck Pagano was treated for leukemia. Arians has been replaced by Pep Hamilton, Luck’s offensive coordinator at Stanford.
“Indianapolis made a rash of questionable signings (Ricky Jean-Francois, LaRon Landry, Gosder Cherilus, Darrius Heyward Bay and Donald Thomas) that filled needs without solving problems.
The schedule itself may make it difficult to enjoy another winning season. Indianapolis will face six playoffs teams including the Peyton Manning-led Denver Broncos.
Then again, should the Colts play like last year, they can easily beat the likes of Oakland, Miami, Jacksonville (twice), St. Louis, Tennessee (at least once), Arizona and Kansas City and get over that 7.5 number.
