Indianapolis Colts vs. Miami Dolphins Odds

Indianapolis Colts vs. Miami Dolphins odds had the Colts as a -3 road favorite across the board with a few notable exceptions.  Sports Interaction was giving the Dolphins +4 odds so no doubt Miami backers would want to bet their team there.  BetUS.com was among the teams offering the Colts at -3.

Miami has won four of the past six meetings, including a win in the 2000 AFC Wild Card matchup, to increase their overall series lead to 46-23.  The Colts, however, have won the last two games in this series dating back to 2003.

Anthony Gonzalez was expected to play a major role in the Colts' aerial attack this season, but a knee injury will sideline him indefinitely. In the meantime, the Colts will look to Austin Collie and Pierre Garcon -- two players with a combined nine career receptions -- to fill the void alongside Wayne and tight end Dallas Clark.

New coach Jim Caldwell has his defense playing a more aggressive zone blitz scheme. Despite recording only one sack against Jacksonville, the Colts harassed Jaguars QB David Garrard all day and stacked the box against Maurice Jones-Drew and the ground game. Dolphins QB Chad Pennington isn't prone to making many mistakes, but coming off a two-turnover performance against Atlanta, he's likely to face plenty of pressure.

Some important Indianapolis Colts vs. Miami Dolphins odds trends to consider:

The Colts are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 Monday games.

The Colts are 12-4 ATS in their last 16 games after allowing less than 250 total yards in their previous game.

Indianapolis is 10-4-1 ATS in their last 15 games after scoring less than 15 points in their previous game.

The Colts are 11-5-1 ATS in their last 17 games as a road favorite of 0.5-3.0.

The Dolphins are 4-10-3 ATS in their last 17 games as an underdog of 0.5-3.0.

The Dolphins are 1-8-2 ATS in their last 11 games in September.

The Colts were getting almost 85 percent of the action in this game.  Gambling911.com will be on the Colts at +3.
