The Colts looked great in the first half against their AFC south rival Houston Texans. Anthony Richardson completed 60% of his passes while rushing for 35 yards and two touchdowns. However, for the second week in a row, Richardson had to leave the game due to injury. The Colts rookie QB is now in concussion protocol and could miss this week's game against their toughest opponent yet, the Baltimore Ravens.
For the second straight week, the Indianapolis Colts defense had an impressive showing. Indianapolis forced 3 fumbles and recovered two of those for turnovers. As a team they also logged six sacks and 10 tackles for loss.
QB Gardner Minshew will step in if Richardson can't go this week against the Ravens. Minshew has proven himself as a serviceable backup in the past, thought he had a chance to win against Jacksonville in Week 1 and fell short.
The major concern currently is how to stop Richardson from getting injured. A season-ending injury for their first-round QB would not only be detrimental to the Colts playoff chances but the future of the franchise as well. His health could cause a massive shift in all futures markets for the Colts.
That's something to keep an eye on for all bettors, but specifically those in KY now that retail Kentucky sports betting is live and mobile sports betting is set to launch Thursday, Sept. 28.
Colts Super Bowl 58 Odds: September 2023
The Colts Super Bowl odds are +13000, per DraftKings Sportsbook Kentucky. Despite the shift in their odds, I would be hesitant on adding any Colts futures until after Anthony Richardson is out of concussion protocol. Below, you can see their odds of winning the Super Bowl, AFC championship, and AFC North, and their odds of making or missing the playoffs:
Implied probability is the conversion of betting odds into a percentage. Doing this takes into account the bookmaker margin to show the expected probability of a bet occurring. Knowing how to convert odds into probability is crucial because it helps you understand the value of a specific market. If you believe there's a higher chance of a bet winning than the implied probability, that represents value and is considered a good bet.
The equation for calculating implied probability differs between favorites and underdogs. Both are shown below:
- Negative odds / (Negative odds + 100) * 100 = implied probability
- 100 / (Positive Odds + 100) * 100 = implied Probability
Here is an example of using both with the Colts chances to make and miss the playoffs:
- ✅ To miss playoffs: (-370) 370 / (370+ 100) * 100 = 78.82%
- 🚫 To make playoffs: (+275) 100/ (275 +100) * 100 = 26.27%

Colts Super Bowl Odds vs. AFC South
The Jaguars lead the AFC South in Super Bowl odds at +2500 to win it all. Jacksonville is 1-1 on the season after a loss to Kansas City last week.
Second among AFC South teams in futures bet odds is the Titans, currently at +7500. The Titans odds to win the Super Bowl shortened this week from +10000 following their close win over the Chargers in Week 2. This week they are scheduled to take on the Browns, who are coming off of a short week after playing on Monday Night Football.
After QB Gardner Minshew led the Colts to a 31-20 win over Houston, Indianapolis saw their Super Bowl odds move from +15000 to +13000. The current question now is: Can Anthony Richardson stay healthy enough to get them to the playoffs?
The longest odds to win the super bowl in the AFC South—and the NFL overall—belong to the Houston Texans, currently at +40000. Now set to take on the AFC South-leading Jaguars, Houston will need to pull off an upset to avoid starting 0-3.
Only 1 team has made the playoffs after starting 0-3 dating back to 2002. Coincidentally enough it was the Texans in 2018.

Key Contributors Toward Colts Super Bowl Odds
The Colts' biggest question is whether or not first-round draft pick Anthony Richardson can stay healthy. QB Gardner Minshew may not have lost the game after Richardson went down against Houston. But, there is a considerable drop off when it comes to his ability as a mobile quarterback.
Indianapolis is also expect to be without Jonathan Taylor until at least Week 5. There have yet to be any updates about potential trade partners for the star RB despite multiple injuries to top rushers around the league. That doesn't mean he won't be moved, though.
Until he returns or ultimately traded, the Colts will rely on Zach Moss in the backfield. Moss carried the ball 18 times against Houston for 88 yards and a touchdown. The return of Moss from a broken arm saw Deon Jackson limited to only special-teams snaps against the Texans.
Leaning into the passing attack this week could be a solid game plan against the Ravens—and not just because Richardson is out. Baltimore has held their first two opponenets to just 138 combined rush yards.
Minshew will have plenty of options downfield. Michael Pittman Jr. currently leads the Colts with 153 yards on the season and one touchdown. Despite not being the first option in the end zone, Pittman holds a large margin over the rest of the team when it comes to targets, currently at 23 on the season. The next two Colts pass catchers, WR Josh Downs and TE Kylen Gragson, combine for just 22.
Downs has been this year's breakout receiver for the Colts, taking the starting role from Isaiah McKenzie in the preseason.
One passing option that can hopefully be worked in more is second-year WR Alec Pierce. A season ago, Pierce racked up more than 500 yards. Through two games of the season, he's caught three pass on just five targets for 33 yards.
With a QB1's availability in doubt against the Top 3 FPI team, you might think this game is a loss before it even kicks off. However, when you have a solid backup QB and a defense that has impressed like the Colts' has, that is far from the case.
On defense through two weeks, the Colts rank 7th in points allowed and have 4 forced fumbles, 8 sacks, and 17 total tackles for loss. The unit has a whole has been successful but Zaire Franklin, DeForest Buckner, Shaq Leonard, and Julian Blackmon have been the top playmakers.
Franklin has already hit 30 total tackles on the season, double more than any other player in Indianapolis. Buckner has been been a force behind the line of scrimmage, logging 2 sacks and 3 total tackles for loss through the first two games.

Point Spread Bets
Point spreads are a wager on a team to win by more or less than the spread listed. For example, if a team is listed as a 3-point favorite, they have to win by at least 4 points to cover the spread. If a team is listed as a 3-point underdog, they either need to win outright or lose by less than 3 points if a 3-point favorite wins by exactly 3 points, bets on the favorite and underdog are considered a push and voided to return the original risk amount.
Player props are wagers on one specific player to have more or less than the offered amount of a specific statistic. An example of a Colts player prop that should be available for almost any regular season game is Anthony Richardson's over/under total passing yards.
Indianapolis Colts Super Bowl History
The Indianapolis Colts technically have only two Super Bowl wins. Before the NFL-AFL merger, they also won two NFL championships back to back in 1958 and 1959. The Colts appeared in two other Super Bowls, losing to the New York Jets in 1969 and the Saints in 2010.
Indianapolis is one of only three teams in the History of the NFL to win Super Bowls representing multiple cities. The Baltimore Colts won Super Bowl V, beating the Dallas Cowboys 16-13. The only other teams to win while representing multiple cities are the Raiders and the Rams.
Have the Indianapolis Colts Ever Won the Super Bowl?
The Indianapolis Colts won their first Super Bowl in 1971. The game took place at the Orange Bowl in Miami, Florida. Super Bowl V was noteworthy specifically for how close the game was. Both the Colts and Cowboys racked up multiple turnovers and penalties throughout the game. Jim O'Brien won the game for the Baltimore Colts with a field goal in the final seconds to beat Dallas 16-13. Still to this day, Chuck Howley is the only player from a losing team to win Super Bowl MVP.
Wildly enough, the Colts second Super Bowl was also played in Miami, this time at Dolphin Stadium. Super Bowl XLI is remembered as one of the only Super Bowls to be played in rainy conditions. The 2007 Super Bowl also marked only the second time across the fourth North American major professional sports leagues that two African American head coaches faced each other in a championship game or series.
Devin Hester's 92-yard opening kickoff return for a touchdown is remembered as one of the greatest plays in Super Bowl history. However, it would not be enough for the Bears to come away with the win as Peyton Manning led the Colts to a 29-17 victory, winning the MVP award along the way.
How Many Super Bowls Have the Indianapolis Colts Won?
