Who's everyone betting on this week? That's an easy one. The Indianapolis Colts.

Carrie Stroup here with your NFL Week 5 Betting Action report and the gambling public is all over the Indianapolis Colts it seems.

1. Indianapolis Colts - Sportsbook.com was seeing some 96 percent of the action going the Colts way. This was by far the most bet on team of the weekend everywhere.

Gambling911.com actually has the Houston Texans covering this one.

2. San Diego Chargers - Next most bet on team: The San Diego Chargers. With 91 percent of the action going the Chargers way, they are easily the second most hottest bet on team of the weekend verses the Miami Dolphins.

Gambling911.com was on Miami to cover here.

3. Chicago Bears - 93 percent of the betting public was on the Bears to beat Detroit at a firm -3.

The remaining team action varied per book but the bookmakers across the board were definitely looking for wins by the opposing team in each of these.

4. New England Patriots - 95 percent of the betting public was on the Patriots to cover a rather huge line, although some books had other teams getting more action than the Patriots.

5. New York Giants - Around 85 percent of action was going the Giants way.

6. Washington Redskins - 70 percent of action going the Skins way vs. Philadelphia.

7. Buffalo Bills - 81 percent of the action going the Bills way at some books.

8. Tennessee Titans - Also around 70 percent of action going the Titans way.

The Denver Broncos and New Orleans Saints were getting very lopsided action but the volume was not as high at most online sports books.
