NFL Playoffs Betting: Colts vs. Chargers at Sports Gambling

NFL playoffs betting Saturday includes the AFC matchup of the Colts and Chargers as the NFL playoffs odds include many intangibles here.

NFL playoffs betting enthusiasts are used to the presence of Indianapolis, while just one month ago nobody expected San Diego to end up on the NFL playoffs odds board.  The Indianapolis Colts started off just 3-4 both straight up and against the spread and were written off as washed up.  But head coach Tony Dundy and quarterback Peyton Manning proved that it could be dangerous for NFL playoffs betting handicappers to look past the Colts.

Indianapolis has strong NFL playoffs odds momentum as they won their final 9 games straight up and lost just 3 of those games against the spread.  Manning is the Colts most reliable NFL playoffs betting weapon as he finished with 4002 yards passing and a 27/12 TD/INT ratio and a 95.0 rating.

Reggie Wayne is Manning’s favorite target and figures to be a strong NFL playoffs asset.  The Colts figure to be a solid NFL playoffs betting value on the road as they lost just 2 out of 8 away games against the spread in 2008.

Defense has always been a NFL playoffs betting strength for the Colts under Dungy and they ranked 11th overall in the NFL this year on that side of the line.

NFL playoffs betting success often rides on the kicker and Indy has one of the best in Adam Vinatieri.  Indianapolis was posted as a 1 point NFL playoffs odds chalk in this one and they were just 4-8 against the spread laying points this year.

After their November 30 loss to Atlanta the Chargers were 4-8 straight up and written off as dead for their NFL playoffs betting chances.  In an incredible NFL playoffs rally, however, San Diego won their final 4 games, covering 3 of them, and ended up as AFC West champions and into NFL playoffs betting action.

San Diego has its share of assets starting with an 11th ranked offense led by quarterback Philip Rivers who passed for 4009 yards and a whopping 34 TD’s.  LaDainian Tomlinson rushed for over 1000 yards and figures to be a key to San Diego’s NFL playoffs betting success.

The Chargers NFL playoffs betting weakness appears to be their 25th ranked defense.
