NFL Odds – Pats aim to ruin Colts’ unbeaten start to the Season

Sportsbook players everywhere are anxiously awaiting on Sunday night’s televised showdown between New England and Indianapolis, which is annually one of the most anticipated games of the season. As usual, the spotlight should be planted on the game’s star quarterbacks, New England’s Tom Brady and Indianapolis’ Peyton Manning.

Patriots vs Colts odds – Sunday, November 15, 8:20 PM ET

The Patriots (6-2) returned from their bye to win their third straight game, beating Miami 27-17 behind 332 yards on 25-of-37 passing from Brady, along with a touchdown and a pick. The duo of Brady and Randy Moss again proved to be too much for the opposition at Moss had six catches for 147 yards and a score for the Patriots, who also got 82 yards and a touchdown on the ground from Laurance Maroney. If the Patriots’ offense could get some balance, their already-good NFL odds would probably go through the roof.

The Colts (8-0) adhered to the phrase, “you have to be good to be lucky” as Houston missed a field goal at the end of regulation in a 20-17 Indianapolis win at home. It looked like the Colts were about to roll, as they led 10-0 after 15 minutes and Manning was on fire. He still finished 34-of-50 for 318 yards, a touchdown and a pick, but the Colts really didn’t put away the Texans, who committed 13 penalties. The defense came through when it was needed, though, and they’re essential to the Colts’ Super Bowl odds.

Online betting odds are favoring the Colts at home by 2.5 points, and they’ve won four of their last five against the Patriots. However, this is a rare chance for the Patriots to overcome NFL odds as an underdog, as the Colts’ secondary is beat up, and this means that Brady and Moss could have a monster day, especially if Indianapolis goes away from the running game. New England is also fourth in the league in pass defense, which means they should be able to contain Manning, as much as possible anyway.
