Buffalo Bills at Indianapolis Colts

This NFL betting matchup will be televised by the NFL network.

Normally teams treat the third week of the preseason as a dress rehearsal and while that may be the case for the Bills it might not be that way for the Colts.

Football betting on Indianapolis this preseason has been different since starting quarterback Peyton Manning has been out with an injury. His absence is why the Colts may not treat this game as a normal Week 3 game according to NFL betting information. They may do more of their regular season preparation next week according to football betting experts. In this game expect to see backup quarterback Jim Sorgi getting extensive playing time again according to NFL betting information. Football betting information tells us that the Colts again will look to some of their veteran players like wide receiver Marvin Harrison. The Colts are still very talented on both sides of the ball according to football betting stats. They have a running attack led by Joseph Addai who can impact football betting lines while the defense is led by Dwight Freeney and Bob Sanders.

Football betting on the Buffalo Bills is sometimes difficult to predict. The Bills can look solid at times with quarterback Trent Edwards but since he is young he still makes mistakes and that is a problem for gamblers looking to take the Bills versus the football betting number. NFL betting information shows that the running game is also young with Marshawn Lynch. Lee Evans leads the receiving corps according to football betting stats. The Bills defense is just average in terms of NFL numbers.

Neither head coach has been a very good bet in terms of preseason football betting. Dick Jauron of the Bills has a below .500 record against the football betting pointspread in the preseason in his career. The Colts’ Tony Dungy is also below the break even mark in his career in terms of the football betting pointspread in preseason action.
