NFL betting odds skepticism is creeping in for the Super Bowl prospects of the Indianapolis Colts as they don’t quite seem capable of beating elite contenders with the NFL betting lines.
NBC Sunday Night Football will feature the potential AFC playoff matchup of the San Diego Chargers at Indianapolis Colts with kickoff set for 8:30 PM ET. Be sure and check Sports-Gambling for lines on this critical matchup and to open your account.
The Chargers cannot afford another loss, especially in conference, but the Colts should bring their best effort after a tough loss last week in which Peyton Manning threw a critical late interception that he said made him “sick.” Manning would figure to be a dangerous opponent as he seeks redemption in this one.
San Diego has a record of 5-5 both straight up and with the football betting odds with 6 of their games going over the total. The Chargers are riding a 3 game winning streak and are coming off a 35-14 Monday Night win over Denver to close within 1 game of Kansas City for first place in the AFC West.
San Diego ranks 3rd in the NFL for scoring offense and has the top ranked defense in the league as well. Quarterback Philip Rivers has a QB rating of 105.0 and a stellar 23/9 touchdown/interception ratio.
Michael Tolbert has a 4.5 yards per carry average as he leads the team in rushing with 506 yards and receivers Antonio Gates, Malcom Floyd, and Patrick Crayton are all over 16.5 yards per catch. The Chargers have proven to have too much going for them to stay down despite a 2-5 start.
Indianapolis has a record of 6-4 straight up and 6-3-1 with the football betting lines as 6 of their games have gone over the total. Indianapolis ranks 4th in the NFL for scoring offense and 15th for scoring defense.
The Colts are coming off a 31-28 loss at New England and are tied with Jacksonville for first place in the AFC South. Manning has a QB rating of 93.9 with a 20/7 TD/INT ratio.
