Indianapolis Colts vs. Green Bay Packers: Point spread and odds

 Week 7 of NFL football is closing in on us and it's time to look at the odds and spread, starting with the most bet on game this week - the match-up Indianapolis Colts vs. Green Bay Packers. Two teams with great expectations entering this NFL season, but both of them showing great inconsistency so far. The Indianapolis Colts (3-2) had a bad start, losing 2 of their first three games this season and the Green Bay Packers are sitting on an unenviable 3-3 record so far, but atop of the NFC North, sharing the same record with the Bears and the Vikings.

 It's definitely going to be a though football game this Sunday, but the odds makers have already picked their favorite. At the online sportsbook Bookmaker, the Indianapolis Colts hold slightly shorter odds at -130 to win the game, while the Packers will come out on home field as underdogs with odds +150 on victory. At the same betting website the Indianapolis Colts vs. Green Bay Packers point spread is currently sitting at -2 points chalk the Colts with the total posted at 47 points. Keep in mind that betting trends show the Indianapolis is 2-5 against the spread in its last 7 games, but 5-1 against the spread in its last 6 games when playing the Packers. At the same time the total has gone OVER in 4 of Green Bay's last 6 games when playing Indianapolis.

 Injuries could be the decisive factor in this Week 7 NFL game. The Indianapolis Colts, holding the NFL worst rushing at 69.4 points on average per game, could come out Sunday without running back Joseph Addai, who missed Wednesday practice with hamstring injury. But he is not alone, Indianapolis wide receiver Roy Hall, cornerback Kelvin Hayden, safety Bob Sanders, tight end Gijon Robinson, plus defensive ends Dwight Freeney and Robert Mathis all were absent from Wednesday practice, although the DEs was not injury related. But the Packers have little to cheer about - defensive ends Jason Hunter and Mike Montgomery, cornerbacks Patrick Lee and Charles Woodson, as well as DT Ryan Pickett missed Wednesday practice, while CB Al Harris, wide receiver James Jones and Green Bay's quarterback Aaron Rodgers did a limited practice.
