Kickoff is scheduled for 1:00 ET. The Colts will square off against an opponent from the NFC North Division for the second consecutive week, and hasn’t lost its first two regular season games since 1998.
Last Sunday night, NFL odds had the Colts as ten point favorites over the Chicago Bears at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, with the ‘total’ set at 43. Bears QB Kyle Orton played well, as did rookie RB Matt Forte, who ran for 123 yards and a touchdown in his NFL debut.
The mighty Bears defense was able to capitalize on the absence of Colts’ Pro-Bowl center Jeff Saturday and Manning’s lack of playing time in the pre-season, holding the explosive Colts offense to a paltry 13 overall points.
NFL bettors who picked Chicago straight up, or Indianapolis not to cover the pro football betting line, emerged victorious in this contest. The Vikings opened the season Monday night in Green Bay, where they were listed as one-point underdogs to the Packers. The ‘total’ in this football betting contest closed at 37.
QB Aaron Rodgers looked solid in his debut for the Pack, completing 18-of-22 passes for 178 yards and a touchdown. Green Bay’s big play came in the third quarter when cornerback Will Blackmon returned a punt 76 yards for a touchdown to put the Packers up 17-6.
Minnesota put some points on the board in the final quarter, but it was not enough to claim victory. Green Bay took this one by a final score of 24-19, covering the NFL betting line and contributing to make the score go over the predicted ‘total’ of 37.
The Indianapolis Colts are listed as a one point favorite over the Minnesota Vikings in Sunday’s football betting affair, with the ‘total’ standing pat at 43.5. Sports-Gambling.com is the best NFL wagering site around.
