Great coaching goes a long way in the National Football League these days. Luckily for Jim Irsay and his beloved franchise, Indy looks to have locked up a good one in former Philadelphia Eagles offensive coordinator Shane Steichen. Through three games, the Indianapolis Colts look nothing like the hot garbage that took to the gridiron throughout all of last season. It went toe-to-toe with the division rival Jags to open the season before spitting the bit in the fourth, but has bounced back with a pair of covers against the NFL odds over the last two weeks by getting the best of the Texans in Houston and following it up with the most impressive win of the new coaching staff era by upending Lamar Jackson in overtime at M&T. They’ll be out to log a third straight victory in Week 4 NFL betting when they welcome the also surprising Rams into Lucas Oil for what I believe to be one of the more interesting pairings of the slate. NFL bettors look to have bought in evidenced by the Colts now deemed the favorite to come out on top.

Indianapolis Colts Week 4 Matchup

On Sunday, October 1, 2023, the Indianapolis Colts  will host the Los Angeles Rams from Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, IN. Kickoff time is set for 1 p.m. ET with television coverage on FOX. The lookahead betting lines for this non-con clash hit the board with Indianapolis catching 1.5-points and the total lined 45.5. It’s still unknown at the time of this writing as to whether it will be Anthony Richardson or Gardner Minshew under center when Aaron Donald and co. come a calling Sunday afternoon. It might not matter as big an advantage Kwity Paye and the Colts defense will have in the trenches with the Rams offensive line just serving up six sacks to the Bengals this past Monday night. LA masked its deficiencies up front against Seattle and San Francisco, but failed to do so against Trey Hendrickson and his upfront mates. Indy has been getting after opposing quarterbacks all season evidenced by ranking No. 5 in sack percentage which has equated to a near league-best 4.0 sacks per game. The pass rush will however be forced to bring it with the league’s No. 23 ranked secondary likely to have all kinds of issues fending off the duo of Puka Nacua and Tutu Atwell who’ve spearheaded the Rams No. 4 ranked passing attack. Indianapolis proved to be a losing proposition as a home favorite a season ago with it logging 1-5 SU and ATS marks. It’s also failed to win or cover the football betting lines each of the last three times it went off the board favored by up to 3-points with the over cashing in two of those contests.

Indianapolis Colts Week 3 Recap

Before the season started, I was pounding the table and proclaiming the Indianapolis Colts being much better than linemakers were giving them credit for. I hit the over of their 6.5-game season win total odds with confidence and even took a flier on the over of their alternate win total as well as the team winning the AFC South. All three investments look pretty darn good right now after Shane Steichen’s troops went into Baltimore and scored an overtime win against the Baltimore Ravens in a game they closed touchdown underdogs to lose. The end result cost the online sportsbook with 51 percent of the bets and 62 percent of the money locked in on Indy. While the win was extremely fluky with the Ravens outgaining them 364-327 and averaging 5.1 yards per play with a severely undermanned roster, it still goes in the record book as a dub and that’s all we’re concerned with. The defense and the leg of Matt Gay ultimately saw the shocking result all the way through with the former forcing a pair of turnovers and logging four sacks, while the latter nailed all five of his field goal attempts which included the game-winner in overtime from 53-yards out; his fourth connection from 50+ yards in the game! Zack Moss proved to be the offense’s lone standout after combining for 145 scrimmage yards and scoring the offense’s lone touchdown. He’s making a case for becoming the franchise’s RB1 should it ultimately decide to part ways with Jonathan Taylor down the road! Linemakers were able to recoup some of the loss on the side due to the 41 combined points failing to exceed the 44-point O/U with 53 percent of the money banking on a high scorer playing out.

In 1984 during the middle of the night, the Baltimore Colts snuck out of town with Mayflower moving vans to take up residence in Indianapolis, Indiana. For Baltimore fans, it was a personal tragedy. For residents of the Hoosier State, the Colts gave them a much-needed big league status.

The Baltimore Colts were one of the most successful franchises in NFL history. Led by the famed Johnny Unitas at quarterback, the Colts put the NFL on the map with their overtime win at the New York Giants in the 1958 championship game. The Colts also suffered the greatest upset loss in history. In Super Bowl III, the New York Jets defeated the Colts 16-7 as 18.5-point underdogs. Baltimore went on to win Super Bowl V two years later.

Since 1995 the Colts have been one of the most successful franchises in pro football. Indianapolis has missed the playoffs just nine times since then. Of course, much of that success was due to Peyton Manning, who led them to two Super Bowl appearances with one win. Indeed, Lucas Oil Stadium is the House that Peyton Built.
