Colts Remain Perfect but Broncos Lose NFL Betting Odds

The Colts just slipped by the San Francisco 49ers even though they did not cover the NFL lines.

Denver was never in their game against Baltimore and lost versus the NFL betting odds.

NFL betting odds have only Indianapolis and New Orleans unbeaten this season.  The Broncos saw their streak end as the Ravens ended a three-game losing streak with a 30-7 win. Joe Flacco improved to 9-3 in his career at home while on the other side, Kyle Orton did not throw a touchdown for the first time this NFL lines season.  Baltimore was the first team this season to rush for more than 100 yards against Denver.   The Broncos were scoreless in the first half for the first time this NFL betting odds season.

The Broncos may have lost but the Colts are still perfect. They won their 16th straight regular-season game going back to last season but it was not easy and they did not cover the NFL betting odds.   Peyton Manning threw for more than 300 yards.  The 49ers lost their third in a row and the first with Alex Smith as the starting quarterback.  Smith was 19 of 32 for 198 yards with one TD and one interception as NFL betting odds stats indicate.  The 49ers actually led the game 14-9 at the half but they couldn’t score in the second half. They were getting nearly two touchdowns in NFL betting odds so they did cover the spread although they did not win the game outright.

NFL betting odds have the other unbeaten team, the New Orleans Saints, heavily favored on Monday night as they host the Atlanta Falcons. The line on the Saints has continually risen throughout the week and now the Saints are laying 11.5 against the Falcons on ESPN’s Monday Night Football. The Saints are also the only unbeaten team in the league versus the NFL lines. The Broncos were also unbeaten versus the NFL betting odds until their loss to Baltimore on Sunday. 

NFL betting odds have the most successful teams versus the NFL lines being the Saints, Broncos, Colts, 49ers, Falcons Ravens and Eagles. The worst teams so far this season versus the NFL betting odds have been Tampa Bay, Tennessee, Washington, Carolina and Kansas City.
