Colts Futures Odds: Can Jonathan Taylor Win OPOY?

Posted on November 29, 2021 - Last Updated on December 9, 2021

It’s worth checking in on the futures odds for the Indianapolis Colts now that we’re in the home stretch of the season.

The team has found some momentum recently after starting off the year 0-3. The Colts are currently sitting at a dead even 6-6 after Week 12.

Stumbling out of the gate has been hard for the Colts to recover from. The team’s odds haven’t been able to claw their way back from that slow start.

The Colts are a big part of sports betting in Indiana, so there are plenty of gamblers keeping an eye on the team’s latest odds.

Jonathan Taylor MVP, OPOY odds

Some of the best futures options left on the board for the Colts involve Jonathan Taylor.

The running back is currently leading the NFL in rushing yards. His monster performances even have him as a dark-horse candidate for MVP.

Taylor is still an underdog for that award, but him claiming the trophy isn’t completely out of the question given his recent outings.

 

Obviously, Taylor would need to keep up the pace if he’s going to have a realistic shot at MVP. That will need to come hand in hand with a streak of wins for the Colts.

A more down-to-earth betting option could be Taylor to win Offensive Player of the Year.

He’s currently in the running to take home OPOY honors this season. The odds could increase even more if he finishes the season strong.

 

Taylor is involved in some of the best futures betting options left for the Colts this season.

He’s in the mix for the awards but he isn’t a heavy favorite for either of them. That presents some betting value if you’re bullish on his chances.

Indianapolis Colts odds to make playoffs

The Colts are right on the playoff bubble this season.

The team is second in the AFC South standings, putting them a bit behind a guaranteed spot.

Despite that, the Colts have some momentum behind them.

Legal online sportsbooks in Indiana are giving the team some decent odds to slide into the postseason.

 

If you’re looking to get even more granular, then you can bet on the Colts to make the playoffs as a wildcard team.

Right now, Indy has some of the best odds in the NFL to claim a wildcard spot.

 

Colts vs. Titans AFC South futures odds

The AFC South race was a popular preseason option for gamblers that like betting on the Colts.

The Colts were originally neck-and-neck with the Tennessee Titans when it came to the odds to win the division crown.

The Titans were the slight favorites heading into the season at -100. The Colts were hot on their heels as +120 underdogs at the time.

However, the battle didn’t last for long.

The Titans are 8-4 nowadays thanks to their six-game winning streak earlier this season.

That record has Tennessee as the massive -1,000 favorites to win the AFC South.

The Colts could still claim the top of the division, but that will likely be easier said than done. At +1,000, oddsmakers don’t have much confidence in the team’s ability to make a late-season push.

 

Colts Super Bowl futures

Best of luck to you if you’re betting on the Colts to win the Super Bowl.

The team started the year as +3,000 long shots to come out on top this season.

Those NFL odds were largely speculative because of Carson Wentz. A return to form could have been the spark that the Colts needed to be a real contender this year.

It’s been a mixed bag from Wentz, and the team has hit some injury speed bumps throughout the season.

Indy’s Super Bowl odds are currently at a dreary +5,000. That puts the team right in the middle, tied for the 15th-best odds in the NFL.

 

Betting on the Colts to win the Super Bowl probably isn’t the wisest futures option at this point in the season.

However, that isn’t to say that the team doesn’t have any gambling value left in the tank.

Wagers involving Jonathan Taylor could be well worth taking a look at. Even betting on the Colts to make the playoffs could provide some value if you’re feeling good about Indy’s chances.
