NFL betting odds had the Indianapolis colts win their 22nd straight regular season game on Sunday, breaking the record they shared with the New England Patriots.
It was a record-breaking day in more ways than one as the Colts won and covered against the NFL lines in the win over Denver.
NFL betting odds had the Colts winning 28-16 against the Broncos. Indianapolis was about a touchdown favorite in NFL lines and the Colts scored a late TD to cover the spread. They won in NFL betting odds even though Denver wide receiver Brandon Marshall set an NFL record for most receptions in a game with 21. Marshall broke the record that Terrell Owens had held with 20 catches. Marshall actually broke the record on the final offensive play for the Broncos in the 28-16 NFL betting odds loss. Marshall finished the NFL lines game with 21 catches for 200 yards and two touchdowns as NFL betting odds stat showed. Owens set the record back in 2000 while playing for San Francisco.
NFL betting odds had the Colts winning even though quarterback Peyton Manning was up and down. Early in the game he was great, throwing three TD passes but he threw three interceptions late that almost cost the Colts the pointspread cover in NFL lines.
With the NFL betting odds win, the Colts broke the record for most consecutive regular season wins. They had tied the record of 21 straight last week and this week they made it 22 in a row with the NFL betting odds win over Denver. The Colts also clinched the top spot in the AFC which means they will have home field advantage in NFL betting odds throughout the playoffs. It will now be interesting to see how they approach the rest of the season since their NFL betting odds games will mean nothing in terms of the final standings.
There have been seven teams in NFL history to start a season 13-0 and that includes both this year’s Colts and New Orleans Saints. The Saints survived in Atlanta but they did not cover the NFL betting odds in their win. The Colts also broke a franchise record by winning their 13th straight home game. "It does [feel good]," Colts linebacker Clint Session said about breaking the 21 straight games record. "I’m a part of history right now, so it feels real good. It’s something we can tell our kids and grandkids that we did something no one else had done. It’s definitely a great accomplishment."
