Full Indianapolis Colts Betting Preview: http://www.betdsi.com/events/sports/football/nfl-betting/indianapolis-colts The Indianapolis Colts are coming off back-to-back playoff seasons with two year QB Andrew Luck, who was basically named their starter after being picked number one overall in the 2012 NFL Draft. Although the Colts have won with Luck, it has not always been in impressive fashion as he had a less than fancy 87.0 QB rating and both the Colts offense and defense ended with mediocre metrics which were exposed in a 43-22 playoff loss at the New England Patriots. 2014 Indianapolis Colts Super Bowl Odds: 24-1 2014 Season Win Total: 9.5 (under -125) 2014 Indianapolis Colts Offense: The Indianapolis Colts offense is all about quarterback Andrew Luck. He continues to improve and is already one of the top quarterbacks in the league. He threw for 3,822 yards and 23 touchdowns last season. His numbers would have been much better had he not lost wide receiver Reggie Wayne and tight end Dwayne Allen to injury. Both should be back this season to join T.Y. Hilton and the team also has added wide receiver Hakeem Nicks. The offensive line wasn’t that great a year ago but the team did take Jack Mewhort in the second round and he may start this season. If the Indianapolis Colts are to take the next step and win in the playoffs they need some type of running game. Trent Richardson has been an official bust since coming over from Cleveland. Perhaps Ahmad Bradshaw will get the job this season but his problem throughout his career has been injury. 2014 Indianapolis Colts Defense: The defense for the Indianapolis Colts was really poor a year ago and it was exposed in the game against the Kansas City Chiefs. It may not be any better this season as the secondary still looks bad. They do have Vontae Davis but they did nothing in the off-season to get him some help. And it won’t help the secondary that the pass rush will be weaker, especially since Robert Mathis will miss the first four games due to suspension. The team did add D’Qwell Jackson and Arthur Jones so the linebacker position will be better. Indianapolis Colts Additions: The team added WR Hakeem Nicks, C Phil Costa, DE/DT Arthur Jones, ILB D'Qwell Jackson and safety Mike Adams. The only draft pick of note is offensive tackle Jack Newhort. Indianapolis Colts Offseason Losses: The team lost RB Donald Brown, WR Darrius Heyward-Bey, G Mike McGlynn, G Jeff Linkenbach, C Samson Satele, ILB Kavell Conner, CB Cassius Vaughn and safety Antone Bethea.
