NFL bet odds heavily favor the Indianapolis Colts even though they are on the road this week at the St. Louis Rams.
This bet on football matchup has the Colts at 5-0 on the NFL bet season while the Rams are still winless at 0-6.
NFL bet numbers have the Colts as almost two-touchdown road favorites on Sunday. The Colts have done little wrong this NFL bet season while the Rams have done little right but St. Louis is getting closer to winning. Last week they nearly upset the Jacksonville Jaguars in bet on football results before falling in overtime.
Bet on football stats have the Colts at 5-0 led by quarterback Peyton Manning and a nice young group of rookies. “We have a number of young people who are playing pretty solid football for us,” Colts Head Coach Jim Caldwell said. “It’s highly unusual to have so many first- and second-year players playing so well.” The Colts have five rookies who either start or are important players. They are running back Donald Brown; wide receiver Austin Collie, defensive backs Jerraud Powers and Jacob Lacey and punter Pat McAfee.
The Rams will be trying to bounce back from a really tough loss last week at Jacksonville even though they covered the NFL bet number. The Rams lost in overtime after tying the game late in regulation. St. Louis played well enough to win and could make a good showing against the Colts this NFL bet week. Quarterback Marc Bulger played well against the Jaguars and running back Steven Jackson made some big plays. “(I was) impressed or feel good about how hard we fought but that doesn’t give us anything,” head coach Steve Spagnuolo said. “There are no moral victories. That was a tight football game. We win and lose together. It’s not an offense, defense, special teams thing. There’s a lot of good there. I know I say that every week. I do think we are getting closer. A couple plays here and there, the outcome could have been different.”
The Rams and Colts have only played two times in NFL bet action this decade. They met in 2005 at Indianapolis in NFL bet and the Colts outscored the Rams in NFL bet action and won 45-28. The teams met in St. Louis in 2001 NFL bet and it was the Rams winning 42-17. The Rams are not anywhere near as good as those teams though and that is why they are 13.5 point NFL bet underdogs in their home game this bet on football week against the Colts.
