NFL betting on Saturday includes one of the best Wild Card matchups in recent memory as the 12-4 Indianapolis Colts visit the 8-8 San Diego Chargers.
Football betting odds have the Colts as one point road favorites on Saturday in a game televised on NBC.
NFL betting history shows that these two teams met last year in the divisional round of the playoffs and the Colts lost at home. Earlier this season the Colts won at San Diego by a score of 23-20 during the regular season. This NFL betting matchup should be excellent as Peyton Manning and the Colts offense go against San Diego’s high powered offense led by quarterback Phillip Rivers. The Chargers were not playing well early in the season but they have won four straight and look like a team to be reckoned with in Wild-Card betting. The earlier NFL betting matchup between these two teams nearly went to overtime but Adam Vinatieri kicked a 51-yard field goal with two seconds left to win it for the Colts.
The Colts are considered one of the favorites in NFL betting to make it to the Super Bowl despite starting on the road in the Wild Card playoffs. NFL betting information tells us that Indianapolis is healthy again with running back Joseph Addai and safety Bob Sanders ready for the Chargers. The Colts finished the season at 12-4, which is one of the top records in the league. They just happen to play in a division with Tennessee who was 13-3.
San Diego is playing as well as any team in the league right now. Phillip Rivers should have gotten a Pro Bowl nod and he leads an explosive offense that can impact football betting odds. Running back LaDainian Tomlinson looked good in the finale against Denver but suffered an injury that could affect him against the Colts.
