Super Bowl gambling handicappers have plenty of respect for the Colts as they were the 2006 champions and have a veteran crew with plenty of Super Bowl odds experience. Although the Saints have one of the most explosive high octane offenses in Super Bowl gambling history the Colts have plenty of offense as well or at least a lethal passing attack.
Indianapolis ranked dead last in the NFL for rushing yards but ranked 2nd in the league for passing. While the Colts may be one of the most imbalanced teams on offense to make the Super Bowl odds board if they can find a way to run with any effectiveness at all they will be a strong Super Bowl betting commodity.
A solid running game will only serve to make quarterback Peyton Manning more effective. Manning will likely want to spread the ball around to his talented lineup of receivers in order to keep the Saints guessing.
The Colts will enter Super Bowl gambling action with a pair of receivers that each had 100 receptions in Reggie Wayne and Dallas Clark. The Colts will need to shore up their run defense that ranked a suspect 24th in the NFL.
New Orleans has a top notch rush attack that was ranked 6th in the NFL and that is something the Colts will need to improve upon for a Super Bowl gambling payout.
The Colts will also need to avoid the mistakes and turnovers that doomed the Minnesota Vikings attempt to make the Super Bowl gambling board in the NFC Championship Game. The Colts have shown strong Super Bowl gambling resiliency, particularly in their comeback win over the Jets in the AFC Championship Game.
With their veteran experience and recent Super Bowl gambling title it is not likely that the Colts will be rattled by much of anything. Manning could prove to be the Super Bowl gambling difference in this matchup. No team has a quarterback that is a better leader or student of the game.
