Indianapolis Colts 2009/2010 Odds Not Good

Indianapolis Colts Odds

Why the Indianapolis Colts will suck in 2009 - That's the headline featured over at DeadSpin.com.  The odds are certainly against the Colts performing better than in past seasons.  Not only is Tony Dungy gone, so too are the team's offensive coordinator Tom Moore and offensive line coach Howard Mudd.

"Virtually every article written about the team this offseason has implied that the transition to new head coach Jim Caldwell will be utterly seamless. He's been around the team forever! Peyton does all the coaching anyway! Caldwell's just like Dungy, only darker! Most people won't even know the coach is some other dude now! I've seen any number of supposedly foolproof coaching handoffs in NFL history go awry to believe that s***. COUGH!richiepetitbonCOUGH! This all but guarantees that Caldwell will be a flaming s***wreck."

DeadSpin cites a few other concerns, among them, no more Marvin Harrison and his intimidation of other team defenses in the past.

Then there is this little nugget:

"It's never a good sign when your toughest player is a safety who misses ten games a year. Bob Sanders skipped the team's OTA's this spring due to "the physical demands of the 2008 season," according to the Indianapolis Star. That physically demanding season included appearing in just six games. Pfft. What a pussy."

And while not factored into the 2009 odds, The Colts are always a Manning injury away from 5-11.

"Don't think it can happen, Colts fans? Well, that's just what Patriot fans thought about their supposedly durable little hero last year. It can happen."

The Indianapolis Colts are listed with the 5th shortest odds to win the 2010 Super Bowl with a payout potential of $1300 for every $100 bet at Sports Interaction.  The AFC Championship would pay out $700 for every $100 bet.  Winning the AFC South would pay $140 for every $100 bet.  Winning over 10 regular season games is the favorite featuring a line of -147.  Winning less than 10 regular season games pays slightly better than even odds:  $105 on every $100 bet.
