Colts 2020 Schedule: Early odds for every game (but 1)


Recommended Posts

So based on early lines, Colts go 10-6, with 4 of the losses with spreads of -1 or lower (basically coin flips). 5 of 6 losses on the road.

 

Personally, I think we beat Chicago and Cleveland and are 7-0 going into our home game vs Baltimore. I wouldn't be shocked at all to beat Baltimore at home.

 

Purely my opinion, but I think our toughest games in order are 

1) at TN

2) at Pitt

3) Balt

4) at Raiders

5) at Detroit

6) at Chicago

 

Week       Date                          Time                 Opponent           Opening spread

Week 1   Sunday, Sept. 13       1:00 p.m. ET   at Jacksonville         Colts -6.5

Week 2   Sunday, Sept. 20       1:00 p.m. ET   vs. Minnesota          Colts -2.5

Week 3   Sunday, Sept. 27       4:05 p.m. ET   vs. New York Jets    Colts -6

Week 4   Sunday, Oct. 4          1:00 p.m. ET    at Chicago               Bears -1

Week 5   Sunday, Oct. 11        4:25 p.m. ET    at Cleveland            Browns -1

Week 6   Sunday, Oct. 18        1:00 p.m. ET    vs. Cincinnati          Colts -9.5

Week 7BYE

Week 8  Sunday, Nov. 1          1:00 p.m. ET    at Detroit                 Colts -3

Week 9 Sunday, Nov. 8           1:00 p.m. ET    vs. Baltimore           Ravens -5

Week 10  Thursday, Nov. 12   8:20 p.m. ET    at Tennessee            Titans -1

Week 11  Sunday, Nov. 22      1:00 p.m. ET    vs. Green Bay          Colts -1

Week 12 Sunday, Nov. 29       1:00 p.m. ET    vs. Tennessee           Colts -2.5

Week 13 Sunday, Dec. 6         1:00 p.m. ET    at Houston                Colts -5

Week 14 Sunday, Dec. 13       4:05 p.m. ET    at Las Vegas             Raiders -0.5

Week 15 Sunday, Dec. 20       TBD                 vs. Houston              Colts -3.5

Week 16 Sunday, Dec. 27       1:00 p.m.          at Pittsburgh            Steelers -2.5

Week 17 Sunday, Jan. 3          1:00 p.m.          vs. Jacksonville        N/A (but you'd have to assume it's around -10)

Good stuff.  But curious about 1 game: Detroit.  Why do you think Detroit will be tougher than Chicago or Cleveland?  Yeah, Chicago's offense is a mess but their D is tight.  Cleveland has a nice roster and if they can put it all together they'll be tough.  I don't see as much stopping the Colts in Detroit.  The rest I agree on.  10-6 feels about right all things considered.  But I am growing increasingly pessimistic the NFL (or any other pro league for that matter) will play a full season.

 

BTW, I think we all know why that last game doesn't have a line.  If the Colts have a playoff spot clinched and/or Jax is already eliminated that is going to change who plays.

So many X factors here. Rivers has a stellar record vs Jags and Titans throughout his career, including away games. Will that continue with the Colts? 

 

The other aspect is when Rivers used to travel from Pacific time to east coast time to play teams like the Steelers, Ravens, Patriots etc., the record tended to be more often negative. That aspect is also reduced by playing for the Colts. I am sure he wasn't making excuses for those and the results could be because those teams have been really good for a long time. Still doesn't explain his inferior record vs the Browns though.

 

All-in-all, I get the feeling that Rivers will have a resurgence due to several factors, including the OL and run support he will get here and fewer inconveniences due to time zone issues. Maybe it is my optimism speaking but I feel we will beat the spread more often than not as a result thus winning more than predicted. :thmup:

What are the odds of all 32 teams having zero wins and zero losses this year because that’s what I want to put my money on. 

I assume there is some Vegas bet that the season will get canceled.

Doesn't make sense to be a 5 point favorite at Houston in week 13 and only a 3.5 favorite at home against them in week 15

I think they have it backwards because I know that isn't right. I am surprised we are underdogs at Cleveland as well but it is only -1.

That wouldn't be a bad bet if someone just bet little on it because it may get canceled? I guess you would lose your bet though if even 1 game is played.

Well that means they think the Colts are a slightly better team since home gets 3 points.  There's that.  But I think that number should be less this season since the stadiums won't be full.
