Pro football gambling handicappers feel better about the prospects of the Indianapolis Colts after a slow start to the NFL sports gambling season.

ESPN Monday Night Football will feature a critical AFC South Division showdown of the Houston Texans at Indianapolis Colts with kickoff set for 8:40 PM Eastern.  Sports-Gambling opened with Indianapolis as a 5 point home favorite and with a total of 49.5.

The Colts will be seeking revenge for a 34-24 opening day loss at Houston in which they were humiliated by allowing free agent Arian Foster to rush for 231 yards and 3 touchdowns.  This game will be key in the AFC South Division race that had Tennessee leading with a 5-2 mark heading into the weekend.

Houston has a NFL gambling record of 4-2 straight up and 3-3 against the spread with 4 of their games going over the total.  Houston is coming off a bye that followed a 35-31 home win over a good Kansas City team.

There is no getting around the fact that Houston ranks dead last in defense and that may prove to be their undoing for a post season berth.  The explosive offense led by quarterback Matt Schaub and running back Arian Foster ranks 4th.

Indianapolis has a NFL betting record of 4-2 straight up and 3-2-1 against the spread with 4 of their games going over the total.  The Colts are similar to their recent past editions as Peyton Manning quarterbacks a 3rd ranked passing attack while the ground game ranks 25th.  The defense ranks 15th for points allowed and has shown modest improvement.

Houston has a pro football gambling record of 9-2 against the spread as a dog while the Colts have paid out in 6 of their last 7 Monday night games.  The Colts are also 12-5 against the spread after a straight up win.

Houston has gone over the total in 19 out of their last 26 divisional games while the Colts have cleared the total in 9 of their last 13 Monday Night games.  This series has gone over the total in 10 of the last 11 meetings and the road team has paid out in 4 of the last 5 games between the two teams.
