Our NFL Public Betting page shows that 63% of public bettors are currently backing the Panthers to cover the spread tonight versus the Colts. According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, Carolina is a 6.5-point home favorite but bettors don't mind laying nearly a touchdown on an team that has covered the spread five times in six games this year.

Andrew Luck and the Colts have been a public favorite over the years but Indy has struggled on both sides of the ball. The Colts average just 21.0 points per game, which ranks 21st in the NFL, and are 27th in the league in rushing at 93.6 yards per game on the ground.

Their issues defensively are also pronounced. They're 31st in the NFL in total yards allowed (408.6) and 30th in the league in passing yards allowed (285.9). They're also allowing 24.9 points per game defensively, which ranks 21st.
