Indianapolis 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.

Indianapolis Colts vs. San Diego Chargers: Spread and odds 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 website 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 Indianapolis Colts.

 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.
