Indianapolis Colts Betting

It’s going to be an interesting offseason in Indianapolis. The Colts ended the season as a 7-9 team despite Andrew Luck surprising everyone with his retirement in the middle of the preseason. Indianapolis appeared to be the frontrunner in the AFC South through the first half of the season with wins over Tennessee and Houston to move to 5-2, but the Colts only managed to go 2-7 down the stretch. Consecutive losses to Pittsburgh and Miami in the middle of the year exposed this team, yet everyone is positive that Frank Reich was the right man to be head coach after making this team competitive without Luck.

Season Recap

The Colts have an interesting decision to make with Jacoby Brissett. Brissett played relatively well as Indianapolis’ starter for 15 games, completing 60.8 percent of his passes for 2,942 yards with 18 touchdowns and six interceptions. However, this franchise is used to great quarterback play after two decades with Peyton Manning and Luck at the helm, so they may decide to explore other options.

Brissett would have certainly had better numbers if T.Y. Hilton stayed healthy all year. Hilton missed six games due to injury, but he was a shadow of himself in the games he did play in the last half of the season. He didn’t have the speed that makes him an elite receiver, and Hilton wasn’t the only injured receiver either as Chester Rogers and Parris Campbell missed a combined 13 games due to injury.

That led to Zach Pascal leading the Colts in receiving with 41 receptions for 607 yards and five touchdowns. He and Hilton were the only two Indianapolis receivers with more than 300 yards receiving, as Brissett was forced to target other options like Jack Doyle, Eric Ebron, and Nyheim Hines.

Indianapolis largely moved the chains thanks to a very good run game due in large part to a great offensive line. Quenton Nelson might already be the best guard in the NFL, and he helped pave the way for Marlon Mack to run for 1,091 yards and eight touchdowns. The Colts averaged 4.5 YPC (11th in the league), but they averaged just 6.1 YPA (26th in the league).

Defensively, Indianapolis was a league average team. The Colts were right in the middle of the pack in total defense and scoring defense, but they were one of the worst teams at getting off the field on third down. Indianapolis allowed opponents to convert 42.7 percent of their third down attempts, which was the sixth worst total in the league.

The Colts have a star in linebacker Darius Leonard. Leonard was selected to the Pro Bowl for the second straight season, and he would have been one of the leading tacklers in the league if he stayed healthy for all 16 games. The second-year player from South Carolina State registered 121 tackles and five sacks with 9.5 tackles for loss and five interceptions, showcasing his versatility despite missing three games due to injury.

Adam Vinatieri’s kicking woes cost the Colts dearly at points this season, and the greatest kicker in NFL history has likely played his last game. Vinatieri missed eight field goals and six extra points this year, and he was just 5-12 on field goals of 40 yards or more. The 24-year veteran was hoping to kick until he was 50, but he will likely retire at the age of 47.

2020 Season Preview

Indianapolis will select 13th overall in the 2020 NFL Draft, and it’s likely that the Colts take at least one receiver in April. This could be the deepest receiver draft ever, and we could see as many as seven receivers selected in the first round of this year’s draft.

The Colts will have plenty of cap space as players like Devin Funchess and Jabaal Sheard will not be re-signed after underperforming on lucrative contracts, and left tackle Anthony Castonzo has hinted at retirement. Castonzo is someone that Indianapolis would want to re-sign after one of the best seasons of his career, and although his retirement would open up even more salary, Indianapolis does not want to have a gaping hole at left tackle going into 2020.
