What Are Indianapolis Colts Odds To Win The Super Bowl?
The Colts did make some valuable moves in the offseason and through the draft that bolstered their Super Bowl 57 odds. They moved on from Carson Wentz and replaced him with Matt Ryan who had +1000 odds to be their next QB and completely armed their defensive unit with the addition of Stephon Gilmore, Rodney McLeod, and Yannick Ngakoue. They also added offensive depth through the draft in receiver Alec Pierce, tight end Jelani Woods, and OT Bernhard Raimann. Their Super Bowl odds were sitting down towards +3000 before coming way up closer to +2000 after all was said and done in the offseason.
Following the significant changes to their roster, they also saw their odds to win the AFC come up a bit from +1400. Now, they would still need to get their chemistry going on both sides of the ball, but with a vet in Matt Ryan leading the way under center, and arguably the top running back in the NFL in Jonathan Taylor, their odds could be offering some tremendous value right now. This is now the third straight season where they have opened with preseason AFC Championship odds under +2000.
The Colts might have taken over the AFC South division this offseason being that all of their division rivals either took a step back or are still nowhere near contending. The Jaguars and Texans are coming off of top draft picks going towards their rebuilds while the Titans just shipped off their best receiver in AJ Brown. That leaves Indy as possibly the lone contender of the division. Despite not winning a division title since 2014 when they were -175 favorites, they’ve been between +100 and +200 in the last three years.

2023 Colts Player Props
If there is one thing that the Colts are nothing shy of, it is explosiveness and with the addition of a veteran QB under center in Matt Ryan, they could blow the roof off of Lucas Oil Stadium. In addition to Matty Ice, Jonathan Taylor, the league leader in rushing yards and touchdowns, leads the backfield, while a young up-and-coming receiver in Michael Pittman Jr. is locked in at WR1. With so much talent to offer, oddsmakers were not shy of listing player props for them.
Colts Player Props
- Offensive Player Of The Year: Jonathan Taylor +850
- Regular Season MVP: Matt Ryan +3500, Jonathan Taylor +5000
- Most Passing Touchdowns: Matt Ryan +4000
- Most Passing Yards: Matt Ryan +2500
- Most Receiving Touchdowns: Michael Pittman Jr. +2500
- Most Receiving Yards: Michael Pittman Jr. +5000
- Most Rushing Yards: Jonathan Taylor +600
- Most Rushing Touchdowns: Jonathan Taylor +450 (Favorite)
Matt Ryan’s odds for most passing yards should not be ignored and he has his top-ranked offensive line to thank for that. This front seven is easily Ryan’s best that he has had in his career meaning he will have all the time in the world to find the open receiver. He even has the sixth easiest schedule for a QB in the upcoming season as well.
Looking at Jonathan Taylor, you should get in on his favored odds to lead the league in touchdowns while you still can. Taylor led the league last year with 18 and similar to Ryan, he can thank the offensive line. Also, the Colts gameplan heavily favored him whenever they were in the redzone as he got 80.58% of the touches inside of the 20 which not only led the team, but led the league as well. More than half of his scores came in the redzone as well with 11.
Betting On Indianapolis Colts Team Props
One of the great things about team props for the Indianapolis Colts is that there are so many to choose from. Whether it’s their projected total wins, odds to make the playoffs, odds to lead the league in points, or one of the many others, they will be available to you all throughout the season.
Indianapolis Colts Win Total
- Over 10 -145
- Under 10 +110
Indianapolis Colts Odds To Make The Playoffs
- Yes -185
- No +140
Other Indianapolis Colts Odds
- Record Most QB Sacks: +3000
- Score Most Points: +2000
- Most Wins: +1800
Two of their team props that stand ahead of the rest are their odds to make the playoffs and their odds to lead the league in sacks as a team. Starting with their playoff odds, they are in a great spot in terms of their roster with a veteran QB leading the way in Matt Ryan and arguably the best running back in the league, Jonathan Taylor. Going based on trends though, dating back to 2017, they’ve made the playoffs every other season and with them missing last season, on paper, they are scheduled to make it again this year.
Looking at their odds to lead the NFL in sacks, they have one of the best defensive lines in the league. It consists of DeForest Buckner, Shaquille Leonard, newly acquired Yannick Ngakoue, and Kwity Paye. While last season was a huge step back, this unit has the potential to be the best in the league. Fortunately for them though, their schedule is “defensive line friendly” this season as they have eight matchups against teams ranked in the bottom ten worst offensive lines in the 2022-23 season.

The Chiefs took a 38-10 lead on an Alex Smith passing touchdown early in the third quarter. A 10 yard rush from Colts’ running back Donald Brown began a run that saw the Colts outscore the Chiefs 35-6 for the remainder of the game. The massive comeback culminated in a 64 yard touchdown pass from Andrew Luck to T.Y. Hilton, putting the Colts ahead 45-44 with 4:21 remaining in the game. The Colts defense held the lead, resulting in a whopping 28 point comeback - the largest in Colts history and one of the largest in the history of the league.
