Colts Betting Odds In A Free Fall With Manning Injury Lurking

The Indianapolis Colts have been one of the top five betting choices to win the AFC in every season that Peyton Manning has been under center for the Colts. This season, odds makers are having a tough time making that distinction with Manning not yet healed from off season surgery.

Manning has gone on record several times to say that the lockout has affected his recovery. Without access to team doctors, Manning was forced to rehab his injury with doctors he was not familiar with, and the quarterback believes that is a reason he may not be ready when the season starts in a few weeks.

Odds makers had the Colts as the fifth choice in the AFC, but that will likely drop if Manning is not on the field. On Wednesday, Indianapolis signed Kerry Collins as an insurance policy for Manning. If Collins is forced into action, it would be a drastic downgrade from the perennial All-Pro Manning.

Curtis Painter had been handling the first team duties through the preseason so far, but the Colts may have thought they needed more depth. Collins has bounced around the past few seasons, and was a highly successful starter for Tennessee just a few short seasons ago.

The Colts will still be a strong pick by gamblers to win the AFC South. The Houston Texans have had the talent the past couple of years to compete, but the Texans have yet to put a full season of consistent play together. This year is the first that odds makers have given Houston a change to wrestle the division away from the Colts.

Indianapolis has appeared in two Super Bowls since manning took over at quarterback. Indianapolis won once, and lost two years ago against New Orleans. Manning has had some of the best regular season's in NFL history, but has been labeled as a player who has faltered on the biggest stage more often than not.
