The NFL preseason has begun which makes the stakes for individual players seeking to make rosters high. It just so happens, sportsbooks in Indiana are just as high on the Indianapolis Colts 2020 Super Bowl Odds.
With one of the league’s best quarterbacks, defensive upgrades and a new speedster in the receiving corps, Indianapolis is a serious contender to compete for the franchise’s first championship since 2007.
Colts 2020 Super Bowl odds: offseason recap
After going 10-6 in 2018 and falling in the divisional round of the playoffs, the Colts could take the next step and finish the 2019 NFL season on top. Offseason acquisitions could play a big role in that.
Adding athleticism and depth to the defense was a big priority. Indianapolis addressed that through the draft.
Cornerback Rock Ya-Sin leads a contingent of seven Colts defensive draft picks. Indianapolis also added three linebackers through the draft.
Veteran pass-rusher Justin Houston signed with Indianapolis via free agency and should make an impact immediately.
Another Colts signing should also make a big impact.
Wide receiver Devin Funchess will now complement T.Y. Hilton as primary targets for Andrew Luck. Indianapolis also drafted speedster Parris Campbell as a deep threat.
Those additions have made the Colts one of the favorites to try their luck in Super Bowl LIV.
Breaking down 2020 Colts Super Bowl odds
Several legal sportsbooks have Indianapolis among the favorites to hoist the Lombardi Trophy in February 2020. Those books and their odds on the Colts winning Super Bowl LIV include:
- DraftKings +1400
- FanDuel +1400
- PointsBet +1100
- SugarHouse +1400
- William Hill +1200
It’s uncertain which of these books, outside of FanDuel, will be operating in the state when Indiana sports betting goes live. What’s more certain is that Indianapolis is among the favorites to at least play in Super Bowl LIV.
DraftKings, FanDuel, and SugarHouse all list the Colts at +700 to win the AFC title. Those three books along with betting odds at PointsBet have listed whom Indianapolis would play in the game.
The longest odds involving the Colts are on DraftKings and SugarHouse with Indianapolis facing the New York Giants. Those two books have a line of +27000 on that matchup.
Although the odds on the Colts being one of two teams playing on the first Sunday in February aren’t huge, there are other bets worth taking a look at.
Betting on other Colts team futures
Indianapolis fell just a game short of an AFC South championship this year, but the Colts are the clear favorite to dethrone the Houston Texans this season. If the Colts should fall short of that, Indianapolis is a favorite to be a wild card team for the second consecutive season.
DraftKings and SugarHouse have the Colts +375 to be a wild card team. PointsBet has the best odds on Indianapolis making the playoffs either as the AFC South champion or a wild card at +185.
The likelihood of the Colts ending up on the edge of a division title is strong given their win expectancy for 2019. The over/under sits at 9.5 or 10 on disparate books.
The best action on the under is at FanDuel, with odds of +125. PointsBet has the best line on the over at +145.
Team futures involving the Colts aren’t among the longest odds, but odds on Luck having an elite season are more tempting.
No Luck required for awards and statistical achievements
Luck is among the favorites to lead the NFL in passing yards, throw for the most touchdown passes, be named the Associated Press Offensive Player of the Year and win the league MVP.
William Hill has the best line on Luck compiling the most passing yards at +800. DraftKings, PointsBet, and SugarHouse all have Luck +450 to throw the most touchdown passes.
Those same three books list Luck at +900 to win the MVP award and +1000 to be the AP Offensive Player of the Year. And Luck isn’t the only player Indianapolis fans hope is fortunate in taking home hardware.
Other Colts player props: Campbell, Hilton and more
Running back Marlon Mack will probably be featured in the Colts backfield this year, which makes him a contender to lead the league in rushing touchdowns and yards.
FanDuel has Mack +3200 on the yards bet. That book and PointsBet both have him +2000 to tally the most touchdowns on the ground.
Hilton is a similar +2000 to lead the league in receiving yards on William Hill. PointsBet has him +3300 to catch the most touchdown passes.
Campbell is in the middle of the pack to win the AP Offensive Rookie of the Year award. DraftKings, PointsBet, and SugarHouse have him +2500.
On the defensive end, Ya-Sin is +3900 on PointsBet to take home the Rookie of the Year award. Houston is +6600 to be named the AP Defensive Player of the Year on DraftKings, PointsBet and SugarHouse and +5000 with those same three to lead the league in sacks.
A final Colts prop bet that should intrigue those awaiting sports betting in Indiana is Frank Reich winning the AP Coach of the Year award. DraftKings and SugarHouse have him +1000 to do so.
Whether the Colts can ride their offseason moves into a deeper playoff run in 2019 remains to be seen. What’s clear is that as the season begins, many sportsbooks think they’re groomed and ready.
