Carolina Panthers vs Indianapolis Colts Odds


Indianapolis is 0-10 and this week may be their best (only) chance to avoid a winless season, just three seasons after their flirted with a perfect season.

The Colts are small underdogs to the visiting Carolina Panthers who won't be taking any pity. At least the Colts get an extra week of rest and practice to try to pull out the victory here. And they are 6-1 ATS the past 7 seasons following a BYE week.

That was with Peyton Manning at the controls, so it's sort of a useless stat given the 2011 edition of the Colts and their 2-8 ATS ways.
