Super Bowl odds favor the Colts in large measure due to their experience and an offense that is one of the most prolific in Super Bowl gambling history. Any conversation about the Colts with the Super Bowl odds begins, of course, with quarterback Peyton Manning.
Manning already has one Super Bowl gambling win under his belt from three seasons ago when he led the Colts to a win with the NFL Super Bowl odds against the Chicago Bears. Manning enters action with the Super Bowl odds having compiled a quarterback rating of 99.9 based on a completion percentage of 68.8% and 4500 yards passing.
Manning is one of the most efficient quarterbacks to ever compete with the Super Bowl odds as he had a 33/16 touchdown to interception ratio this year. Manning is in top form entering action with the Super Bowl odds as he had a whopping 123.6 quarterback rating in the AFC Championship game win over the New York Jets.
Manning is a cool customer who will keep his composure no matter what the circumstances with the Super Bowl odds. The Colts looked like they were dead with the Super Bowl odds in that AFC title game against the Jets as they were trailing 17-6 but Manning kept the team together and rallied them for a decisive comeback win.
Manning will have a plethora of top receivers to throw to with the Super Bowl odds against the Saints. Reggie Wayne and Dallas Clark each caught 100 passes this season and each of them had 10 touchdowns. Pierre Garcon is the breakaway threat as he averaged 16.3 yards per catch during the season.
The running game is efficient though not dominant. Joseph Addai led all Colt ball carriers with 828 yards and a 3.8 yards per carry average with 10 touchdowns. The Colts ranked 7th overall in the NFL for scoring and 2nd overall for passing yards. They have all the weapons necessary for a Super Sunday against the Saints.
