Football Playoffs Betting on the Chargers-Colts Divisional Playoff Game

Football playoffs betting on the Divisional game between the San Diego Chargers and the Indianapolis Colts looks to be an entertaining rematch.

One of the regular season most exciting NFL playoffs betting games.  While the Chargers won the regular season football betting match up 23-21, NFL playoffs betting experts doubt the Chargers will be able to enjoy such an easy victory this second time around.  SBG Global’s current football playoffs betting lines have the Colts as nine point NFL playoffs betting favorites in this football playoffs betting match up.

Football betting on the Colts this season has been profitable, as the team enjoyed a 9-7 record against the football betting spreads.  However, their 13-3 overall record indicates the squad has won numerous games without covering the football betting lines.  Nevertheless, with a week of rest and home field advantage there is little question that many football playoffs betting fans will be gambling on Indianapolis to dissect the Chargers and quickly squash the existing jubilation in San Diego.  While the Patriots have stolen the headlines this season, football playoffs betting veterans know that the Colts are the returning Super Bowl champions and little has occurred this season to indicate they will not repeat this year.  Manning and the Colts offense has been as efficient as ever, even without the presence of Marvin Harrison, who has missed most of the season.  Harrison will be returning for this NFL playoffs betting match up, however, many football playoffs betting experts are unsure of just how much of a threat he will offer.  Also, the Colts defense, led by hard-hitting Bob Sanders, has proven to be one of the toughest in the league.  Indianapolis is sure to give the San Diego offense lots of problems, and may be just as effective as Tennessee was at shutting down LaDainian Tomlinson.

While few football playoffs betting experts are giving the Chargers much credit in this NFL playoffs betting match up, they should not necessarily be overlooked.  The Chargers are on a seven game win streak and just proved they can win by relying on Philip Rivers’ passing.  It is also significant that Rivers played so well against the Titans despite the absence of Antonio Gates.  However, football playoffs betting experts realize how important Gates is, and it remains unclear whether or not he will be available for the NFL playoffs betting match up this weekend.  Without Gates, there is no question that L.T. will need to have a much bigger game than the one he had against Tennessee.  Also, the San Diego defense will have a much more difficult time stifling Peyton Manning and the Colts than they did with the Titans.  In fact, football playoffs betting fans know that the Colts are virtually guaranteed several touchdowns, so if San Diego is going to win this match up, or even cover the football playoffs betting line, then they have to put some significant points on the board.
