Public Bettors Take Colts

There has hardly been any movement at all this week in the San Diego Chargers, Indianapolis Colts point spread. Oddsmakers at online sports book Bodog opened betting on this game with the Colts listed as -9.5 point favorites over the visiting Chargers. By Sunday morning the Colts were listed as -10 point favorites, a move of a mere half a point.

The over/under odds are another story though. Since opening at 48 total points earlier in the week, the over/under is heading south according to Bodog oddsmakers who have it currently listed at 45.5 total points with less than 4 hours to kick off.

With just over 87,000 point spread bets being tabulated, our current NFL public betting information shows bettors are giving the nod to the Colts to cover the 9 point spread against the visiting Chargers. 60% of point spread bettors in this game are taking the Colts

The Indianapolis Colts have 9 point spread wins in 2007, the Chargers have 12. 9 games the Colts have played in went under the total in 2007, 9 games went over for San Diego. The Colts are averaging 28.1 points per game this season while the Chargers are only averaging 25.2.
