- Jacoby Brissett stepped in to fill the Indianapolis Colts’ starting quarterback position last year.
- There are a lot of questions about his future in Indianapolis, and the sportsbooks might provide answers.
- Oddsmakers believe that Brissett will be the Week 1 starter for the Colts.
INDIANAPOLIS – The NFL offseason is in full swing at the moment, and that means that the 2020 quarterback carousel is spinning wildly already.
The Indianapolis Colts are no stranger to sudden changes at the quarterback position. Before the 2020 season, longtime quarterback Andrew Luck retired early, citing injury prevention. This retirement left the Colts job wide open.
The job was taken by Jacoby Brissett, who had been traded to the Colts from the New England Patriots, who at the time had a glut of good quarterback talent: Brissett, the aforementioned Tom Brady, and Jimmy Garoppolo.
Brissett has proven himself a capable quarterback, earning the respect of his teammates as well as fans around the league.
More from Leonard: “You can look at any quarterback, when your WRs go down, of course your numbers go down. … A lot of people don’t give him credit for what type of quarterback he really is." https://t.co/DiCYQaILDc

The Colts started off the season 5-2, a stretch that included a victory over eventual Super Bowl Champions the Kansas City Chiefs, in Kansas City.
However, Brissett soon picked up a knee injury, and his production began to tail off.
This has led to all the usual questions about a quarterback who is something of an unknown quantity and doesn’t have the resume or pedigree that some free agent options do.
In other words: Brissett might not be the starter for the Colts next year.
Jacoby Brissett Betting Odds
Right now, BetOnline Sportsbook is offering odds on whether or not Jacoby Brissett will be the starting quarterback of the Indianapolis Colts in Week 1 of the 2020 NFL season.
Brisset Starting Odds Week 1:
- Brissett WILL start for the Colts: -140
- Brissett WILL NOT start for the Colts: EVEN
The sportsbooks seem to be slightly leaning towards Brissett starting for the Colts in Week 1 of the season, but with a significant chance that this does not happen.
One thing to keep an eye on if tracking these odds is appealing is that the rest of the NFL appears to be waiting to see what happens with Tom Brady’s situation in New England before making any quarterback moves. Similarly, some teams are waiting until the NFL draft to make decisions about their rosters.
Once some of the higher-profile potential free agent situations are resolved, there could be a flurry of activity that dramatically affects these odds. In other words: stay tuned.
