Football betting history shows that the Colts and Packers have met only twice in the last 10 years. The teams split those meetings with team winning at home. The last game was at Indianapolis and the Colts won 45-31 according to NFL betting stats. Both of the matchups this decade went over the football betting total.
The Colts have been favored in almost every game the past few years in NFL betting. The rare times they were underdogs came on the road and they are 3-1 in those situations according to football betting stats. With Peyton Manning at quarterback the Colts always get a lot of respect in NFL betting. They should get even more respect in football betting based on their 31-3 rout of Baltimore last week. Many gamblers will now believe that the Colts have righted the ship and will continue to have football betting success. That remains to be seen but there is no question the Colts will be popular in football betting this week against the Packers. On the other side of the coin, the Packers have held their own as a home favorite in football betting the past three years hitting about 57% of the time.
The Colts have actually gone under the total more than over the total in road games in football betting since 2005. The Packers are exactly .500 on over/unders at home the past three years according to football betting stats. And that was with Brett Favre at quarterback. It shows you that Green Bay was oftentimes overvalued in terms of the football betting total because of their reputation on offense. The same thing has happened with the Colts. That could be because both Green Bay and Indianapolis have defenses that are better than most people believe.
