Indianapolis Colts vs. Tennessee Titans Odds

The Indianapolis Colts vs. Tennessee Titans odds came in at Indianapolis -4 1/2 - the best number for those looking to place a bet on the Titans, which was around 70 percent at some books. Sports Interaction had slightly more people betting on the Colts, however, and this has prompted them to push the line to Titans +4 ½ as of Tuesday night, a whole point more than most of their competition. This was the Sunday night NFL game and the single most bet on early in the week.

Indianapolis Colts vs. Tennessee Titans odds opened at Colts -1 and quickly moved up well beyond the field goal. In fact, all books at press time had Indianapolis getting more than a field goal on the line. Most of the Vegas books had moved the line to -4. The surprising 0-4 Titans will host Indy after a lackluster performance last week against Jacksonville.'s Intel Report provided an early and ominous assessment of the Titans:

The Titans have the worst pass defense in the league. The Colts have the #1 rated passing offense. Even though it is hard to imagine the Titans dropping to 0-5, from a statistical standpoint that is exactly what will happen if Peyton Manning has even an average performance. Last year the Titans beat the Colts at home because Peyton Manning threw two interceptions and passed for just 223 yards.

Peyton Manning is playing as good as he ever has during his career right now. That's saying a lot, considering Manning is one of the greatest quarterbacks.

The Colts shut out the Titans at home last time they played one another in December, though it can be argued that Tennessee really didn't need that game and was more interested in resting players. Over the last five games, the Titans have gone 3-2. Indianapolis had won the previous 5 in this series, 4 of those being blowouts. Not counting the last game played between these two teams, the 5 previous have all been either won by Tennessee or lost by under a field goal.

Here are some important Indianapolis Colts vs. Tennessee Titans odds betting trends:

The Colts are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games following a S.U. win.

They are 5-1-1 ATS in their last 7 road games.

The Colts are 5-12 ATS in their last 17 vs. AFC South.

The Colts are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games following a SU win of more than 14 points.

The Titans are 8-0 ATS in their last 8 games as an underdog of 3.5-10.0.

The Titans are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games as a home underdog.

The Titans are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games following an ATS loss.

Hey, set a record last week for most losses in a given week. Yes, our record is worse than the Titans. We went a very unimpressive (or impressive, depending on how you want to look at it) 0-6 with our NFL picks and no doubt we'll have plenty of folks fading this week's plays. But past head-to-head trends, Tennessee's overall trends and some desperation from a team we still believe is not as bad as their record indicates has us on the Titans covering that +4 ½ point spread. We're thinking Indy might win by 1 or 2 points though.
