Monday night football: Indianapolis Colts vs. Miami Dolphins point spread

 After a football Sunday full of upsets, the Week 2 of the current season will close with the Indianapolis Colts vs. Miami Dolphins game, below you can find the latest point spread, odds and injury reports. The Indianapolis Colts (1-0) and the Miami Dolphins (0-1) met for the last time almost 3 years ago, a game won by the Colts by 3 points and following the large number of upsets this Sunday, the odds makers at the online sportsbooks are a bit cautious this time around. Will the AFC East winner be able to deliver an upset against the Colts? Let's look at the point spread and odds on the game:

 At the popular online sportsbook Bookmaker, the Colts are of course the odds-on favorite team to win the Monday night football match-up listed with a -170 money line, while the Dolphins are the underdog with odds +150 to win the game. The Indianapolis Colts vs. Miami Dolphins point spread is currently at just -3 points chalk the Colts and the total expected is 42 points. This is obviously quite a small point spread for the Colts to cover and will definitely increase throughout the day, especially when the current payout on the Dolphins is at even money and the Colts will pay out on -120 if they cover the spread. The injury report is clearly helping the Dolphins this Monday, however, who have listed only linebacker Akin Ayodele as questionable for Monday night football. At Indianapolis things are not as sunny - wide receiver Anthony Gonzalez, safety Bob Sanders and tight end Tom Santi are out for Week 2 with injuries, while DB Jerraud Powers, TE Gijon Robinson, CB Jamie Silva and tackle Charlie Johnson all remain questionable for the game against the Dolphins tonight.

 Betting trends from the two NFL franchises show that the Colts have won 4 of their last 5 games on the road, but Indianapolis is 1-5 against the spread in its last 6 games when playing Miami. The Dolphins meanwhile are 3-7 against the spread in their last 10 games, but have failed to cover the spread in their last 5 games at home, although winning 4 of the last 6 at Land Shark Stadium. Also keep in mind that the total has gone OVER in 9 of Indianapolis Colts last 12 games when playing on the road against the Miami Dolphins.
