Super Bowl gambling fans will recall that the New England Patriots made it all the way to Super Sunday as an undefeated team before losing to the Super Bowl lines. The Colts have every element necessary for success in Super Bowl gambling as they are ranked 4th in the league for points scored and 5th overall for points allowed.
Ironically enough when the Colts beat the Super Bowl lines as world champions in 2006 they did not have nearly as good of a defense as they will bring versus the NFL Super Bowl odds this year.
The Colts began the Super Bowl gambling season as a team with many question marks as long time legendary head coach Tony Dungy retired and was replaced by Jim Caldwell.
Caldwell took the best approach towards success with Super Bowl gambling as he did not try and re-invent the team but simply blended in and kept a solid system running to perfection.
Any Super Bowl gambling talk about the Colts begins with quarterback Peyton Manning. Manning is having one of his finest seasons ever with a 101.2 quarterback rating.
Manning looks to be one of the top weapons in Super Bowl gambling as he has completed almost 69% of his passes for 4213 yards and has a 33/15 touchdown to interception ratio.
The Colts will enter the Super Bowl gambling playoffs as one of the most profitable teams on the board as they have lost only 3 out of their first 14 games against the spread and were a perfect 7-0 against the number on the road. Indianapolis has clinched home field advantage for the AFC Super Bowl gambling post season.
The Colts survived a scare at Jacksonville on December 17 as they rallied from a 28-31 deficit to win 35-31 as Peyton Manning hit Reggie Wayne on a 65 yard touchdown pass in the 4th quarter to cap the comeback.
