2015 Indianapolis Colts Preview Win Total Odds Schedule

The Indianapolis Colts had their 3rd 11-5 season in a row last year, but they were blasted by the Patriots in the playoffs, in what is now known as Deflategate. This year Vegas has the Colts Win total set at 10.5 (O -185).  Vegas Odds have the Colts listed at -400 to win their division, +280 to win the AFC Title and +75 to win Suberbowl 50. A preview of the Indianapolis Colts, along with their 2015 Schedule are below. 

Last year the Colts ranked 6th in the league in scoring, at 28.6 ppg, while also ranking 3rd in total yards (406.6 ypg), 1st in passing (305.9 ypg) and 22nd in rushing (100.8 ypg). The Colts had one of the best offenses in the league last year and they should have another strong year this time around. The offense is led by Andrew Luck, who just may be the best QB in the league right now, after guiding the Colts to the number 1 pass offense a year ago. Reggie Wayne is gone from the offense, but the Colts did grab Andre Johnson from Houston and he is a big play threat every time the ball is thrown his way. They also added speedy WR Phillip Dorsett in the draft nand still have TY Hilton as well. Plenty of weapons again for luck to throw to. The running game has been a sore spot for this team over the year, but they feel they have fixed that with the addition of Frank Gore from San Francisco. The OL has allowed 100 sacks the last 3 year and while they will be improved with the addition of Todd Herrmans, it will still be the weakest unit on the offense.   

Defensively, the Colts ranked 19th in points allowed (23.1 ppg), 11th in yards allowed (342.7 ypg), 12th vs the pass (229.3 ypg) and 18th vs the run (113.4 ypg). The defense has not been great for this team the last couple of year, but I look for improvements from them this year. The Colts were busy in the offseason on this side of the ball as they added LB Trent Cole and Safety Dwight Lowery and then used 4 of their first 5 picks on defense in the draft. The DL was improved last year as they finally didn't finish near the bottom in run defense. They finished 18th and should be better this time around, while the LB corps will be solid again, but will also have to play without Robert Mathis for at least the first half of the year as he is recovering from an Achilles injury. Trent Cole should step in and help right away. The Pass defense was solid for this team last year and will be even better this year as they have added Dwight Lowery, to go along with one of the best corners in the league in Vontae Davis and Mike Adams, who is coming off his best year as a pro. The Colt defense is agining a bit and depth is a slight issue, but overall i do expect them to slightly improve over last years numbers.

The Colts are clearly the best team in the AFC South and just may be the best team in the whole AFC. They have the top passing offense in the league, which may be a but better this year, while their running game is vastly improved with the addition o gore. The do need more consistent play up front as they have allowed 100 sacks in the last years and the more Luck keeps taking those hits the more likely he is to get injured and that would be very bad for this team. The defense is improved, but if they sustain many injuries then they could be in some trouble as they don't have a ton of depth on that side of the ball. Their win total is sitting at 10.5, with heavy juice to the overall and I do expect them to post another 11 win season. They play in a very weak AFC North, plus they get tough games vs New Orleans and New England at home and have plenty of winnable road games on their last as well. They do have road dates vs Denver and Pittsburgh, but the rest of the schedule us very manageable and at the end of the year we should see this team with at least 11 wins and playing in the AFC Title game. I also feel they get over the hump and make it to the superbowl.

Free NFL Betting Pick: Minnesota Vikings at San Francisco 49ers
It may be June, but this Monday Night Football bet is already a hot commodity with bettors jumping to bet against the San Francisco 49ers. Pro bettor Steve Fezzik loves the Vikings at +3 here, and says this bet is one you want to run, not walk to get before the number before this three-star bet disappears. With Adrian Peterson back, Teddy Bridgewater maturing, and the 49ers imploding, this is a perfect spot to fade a bad team and bet big on an underrated team this 2015 NFL season.
