Team Outlook and Scouting Report

SEASON FORECASTS AND FUTURES PICKS

The Colts were already a big under pick against their season win line and their odds to win the Super Bowl. With Andrew Luck's shocking retirement, they are no longer contenders. Jacoby Brissett is a very good backup and the Colts' projected win total only dropped 2 wins, but their chances of winning the Super Bowl dropped by 95%. Their odds to win it all are 60/1, 1.6% (#22). Our projection recommends not betting on them to win it all. Their 0.3% chance is #24 in the league. In simulations, they win the AFC 0.7% of the time and are not a good value at 30/1, 3.2%. The Colts are averaging 7 wins per sim so we recommend betting them to come under 7.5 wins. At +240 the Colts are not a good value to make the playoffs with a 20.6% chance. Their odds of winning their division are 4/1, 20%. They win the division in 15.1% of simulations. Their average wins per simulation puts them at #12 in the AFC.

REGULAR SEASON RECAP AND UPCOMING GAMES

Their 10-6 record last season was way ahead of what was expected of them. Their expected win percentage was just 53%. They were solid against the spread going 8-7-1 for (+30 profit). They went over 8 times and came in under 8 times. In their next game vs the Chargers they are only winning 31% of the simulations. The table below shows their upcoming games, their simulation based win percentage and their recent head to head record (WL, ATS, OU).

TEAM OFFENSIVE AND DEFENSIVE STATS WITH LEAGUE RANKINGS

They are an elite scoring team based on points per game. They are the #7 ranked team based on yards per play and the #6 ranked team based on offensive TD per play. They are an above average scoring defense, which makes sense given their TD per play allowed rate.
