Indiana Sportsbooks High On Colts 2020 Super Bowl Odds

The NFL preseason has kicked off, heightening the stakes for individual players trying to secure their spots on the rosters. Coincidentally, Indiana sportsbooks are equally optimistic about the 2020 Super Bowl odds for the Indianapolis Colts.

Indianapolis, boasting one of the league’s top quarterbacks, defensive improvements, and a new swift receiver, is a strong contender for their first franchise championship since 2007.

Recap of the Colts’ 2020 Super Bowl odds during the offseason

The Colts, having gone 10-6 in 2018 and stumbled in the divisional round of the playoffs, could ascend to new heights and end the 2019 NFL season as champions. Their offseason signings could significantly contribute to this potential success.

Indianapolis prioritized enhancing their defense’s athleticism and depth, and addressed this through the draft.

Cornerback Rock Ya-Sin is at the forefront of seven defensive draft picks for the Colts. Additionally, Indianapolis secured three linebackers in the draft.

Justin Houston, an experienced pass-rusher, has joined Indianapolis through free agency and is expected to make an immediate impact.

Another signing by the Colts should also have a significant impact.

Devin Funchess, a wide receiver, will now join T.Y. Hilton as primary targets for Andrew Luck. Additionally, Indianapolis has drafted Parris Campbell, a speedster, to serve as a deep threat.

The additions have positioned the Colts as one of the favorites for a shot at Super Bowl LIV.

Analyzing the 2020 Super Bowl odds for the Colts

Many legal sportsbooks rank Indianapolis among the top contenders to win the Lombardi Trophy in February 2020. The following list shows these books and the odds they have given for the Colts to win Super Bowl LIV:

  • DraftKings +1400
  • FanDuel +1400
  • PointsBet +1100
  • SugarHouse +1400
  • William Hill +1200

It’s not clear which books, excluding FanDuel, will be functional in Indiana when sports betting starts. However, what is more definite is that Indianapolis is considered a strong contender to play in Super Bowl LIV, at the very least.

DraftKings, FanDuel, and SugarHouse all place the Colts at +700 to win the AFC title. These three books, along with the betting odds at PointsBet, have also predicted who the Indianapolis team might face in the game.

DraftKings and SugarHouse have the steepest odds involving the Colts, with Indianapolis going up against the New York Giants. The odds for this matchup on these two platforms are listed at +27000.

While the chances of the Colts being one of the two teams playing on the first Sunday in February aren’t high, there are other wagers worth considering.

Wagering on future outcomes of other Colts teams

This year, Indianapolis missed an AFC South championship by just one game, but they are strongly favored to usurp the Houston Texans in this upcoming season. Should the Colts fail to achieve this, they are likely to be a wild card team for the second year running.

DraftKings and SugarHouse offer odds of +375 for the Colts to become a wild card team. Meanwhile, PointsBet provides the best odds at +185 for Indianapolis to make the playoffs, either as the AFC South champion or a wild card.

There is a strong possibility that the Colts may be on the verge of a division title, based on their projected wins for 2019. The over/under is set at either 9.5 or 10, depending on the bookmaker.

FanDuel offers the best action for the under with odds of +125, while PointsBet provides the best line for the over at +145.

The odds for team futures involving the Colts aren’t the longest, but the odds for Luck having an exceptional season are more enticing.

Awards and statistical achievements do not require luck.

Luck is favored to lead the NFL in passing yards, throw the most touchdown passes, receive the Associated Press Offensive Player of the Year award, and win the league MVP.

According to William Hill, the best odds for Luck to accumulate the most passing yards stand at +800. Meanwhile, DraftKings, PointsBet, and SugarHouse are offering Luck at +450 to record the most touchdown passes.

The same three books have Luck listed at +900 odds to win the MVP award and +1000 odds for the AP Offensive Player of the Year award. However, Luck isn’t the only player that fans of Indianapolis are hoping will be lucky enough to win an award.

Other player props from the Colts: Campbell, Hilton, and others

Marlon Mack, the running back, is likely to be a key figure in the Colts backfield this year. This positions him as a potential leader in the league for rushing touchdowns and yards.

Mack is listed at +3200 for the yards bet on FanDuel. Both FanDuel and PointsBet offer him at +2000 to score the most touchdowns on the ground.

Hilton has odds of +2000 to lead the league in receiving yards according to William Hill, while PointsBet offers him at +3300 to make the most touchdown catches.

Campbell stands a moderate chance of winning the AP Offensive Rookie of the Year award, with DraftKings, PointsBet, and SugarHouse offering him at +2500 odds.

Ya-Sin has odds of +3900 on PointsBet to win the Rookie of the Year award for his defensive skills. Houston stands at +6600 on DraftKings, PointsBet, and SugarHouse to claim the title of AP Defensive Player of the Year, and +5000 on these same platforms to lead the league in sacks.

A final prop bet for Colts fans eagerly anticipating sports betting in Indiana is the possibility of Frank Reich winning the AP Coach of the Year award. Both DraftKings and SugarHouse give him odds of +1000 to achieve this.

It remains uncertain if the Colts’ offseason moves can propel them further into the 2019 playoffs. However, as the season kicks off, it’s evident that many sportsbooks believe they’re well-prepared and primed for action.
