Colts vs. San Diego Chargers: Spread and odds
Point spread, betting odds an
preview of the Week 10 football game between the Indianapolis
Colts and the San Diego Chargers.
Although the Pats finally broke the perfect records of the
Indianapolis Colts last week, they continue to lead the betting
charts in NFL Week 10 and the match-up between the
Indianapolis Colts (7-1) and the San Diego Chargers
(4-4) is now the most bet on even this week. Why the betting
frenzy on the Colts you ask? First, this football game offers
the best value for the bettor in Week 10. At the sports betting
Bodog Sports the Colts are
listed with odds on winning at -200 and the Chargers are
underdog with betting odds at +170. The point spread on the
Indianapolis Colts vs. San Diego Chargers is currently
sitting at -4 points chalk the Colts with total at 48.5 points.
Indianapolis is 5-0 against the spread in its last 5 games and
San Diego is 2-4 against the spread in its last 6 games when
playing at home against Indianapolis.
Considering the Pats have the week off,
the Colts remain the best team to play in Week 10 and very few
believe that the Chargers, who have lost half their games this
season, have what it takes to stop the Indianapolis winning
machine. Odds like these come once in a blue moon, consider for
example that the Steelers are -600 favorite against the Browns
this weekend. Chargers just got whooped 35-17 by the Vikings in
Week 9 and could hardly be considered a match for the Colts. San
Diego will come out on the field with 21st ranked NFL offense
with 309.1 yards per game and 23.6 points on average scored
(9th). Defensively the situation is even worse - 25th in the
league with 355 yards allowed on average per game. If, for some
unimaginable reason, you haven't seen the unofficial Super Bowl
last week, the Indianapolis Colts are working with the third
ranked offense in the league with 390.3 yards and 30.5 points
scored, as well as 281.5-yard defense, ranked fifth in the NFL.
Overall the San Diego Chargers stand little chance against the
Chargers will play without cornerback
Quentin Jammer, Pro Bowl center Nick Hardwick and linebacker
Marques Harris remains questionable for the home game.
Questionable for the Colts remain WR Marvin Harrison, LBs Tyjuan
Hagler and Freddy Keiaho, CB Marlin Jackson and DT Raheem Brock.
