Colts' 2014 Win Total Odds

Indianapolis Colts, Andrew Luck 2014 NFL betting odds 2015 Super Bowl

LAS VEGAS, NV (The Spread) - With Andrew Luck under center the pat two years, the Colts haven't won less than 11 games. Will that trend continue in 2014?

The Colts made several additions in free agency, including at wide receiver with Hakeem Nicks and at linebacker with D'Qwell Jackson. The team also signed Arthur Jones, who should start at defensive end, and Mike Adams, who will compete for the starting free safety job.

Among their offseason losses were safety Antoine Bethea (49ers), Jeff Linkenbach (Chiefs), Darrius Heyward-Bey (Steelers) and Donald Brown (Chargers). Mike McGlynn also signed with the Redskins while Ricardo Mathews was signed by Houston.

The Colts didn't have a first-round pick this year because they traded it to Cleveland last year in exchange for running back Trent Richardson. But in the second round they nabbed Ohio State offensive tackle Jack Mewhort and in the third they took Ole Miss receiver Donte Moncrief.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Colts' over/under for wins in 2014 has been set at 9.5 games. Indy's 2015 Super Bowl odds are also sitting at 18/1, while Denver and Seattle remain the co-favorites at 13/2.

Will the Colts win at least 10 games this season? The odds are in their favor with Luck under center. They also play in arguably the weakest division in football, although the Jaguars, Titans and Texans should be slightly improved from a year ago.

Still, as long as Luck stays healthy I like the Colts to win 10 games. Richardson should improve now that he finally knows the playbook and the additions of Hicks and Moncrief take pressure off Reggie Wayne, who is rehabbing from an ACL injury. Playing in the AFC South helps Indy's chances of winning another 10-plus games so I'd comfortably take the over 9.5.
