After falling to 0-3 this past Sunday, the Indianapolis Colts are officially trying to save their season.
It must be infuriating for fans, because Week 3 was an extremely winnable game. We just can’t understand why Frank Reich decided to abandon the run, which was dominant, in favor of asking a hobbled Carson Wentz to carry the offense.
In any event, Week 4 qualifies as a must-win for the Colts. After all, the 1992 San Diego Chargers are still the only team in NFL history to start a season 0-4 and still make the playoffs.
Looking at the AFC standings, Indy has zero margin for error, so let’s see what Vegas is saying about their chances to get back on track this Sunday.
Colts vs Dolphins Odds Week 4
WynnBET’s Week 4 NFL odds have the Colts as +104 underdogs on the moneyline (bet $100 to win $104). The Dolphins check in at -130 (bet $130 to win $100). On the spread, Indy is -110 to cover +2.5 (bet $110 to win $100). The over/under for Sunday is set at 43 points, with both sides getting -110 odds.
Things could change, though, so stayed tuned throughout the week. Injuries have played a serious role in the early going for both of these squads.
Colts vs Dolphins Prediction Week 4
If there was ever a time to play the Dolphins, it’s now, right? In Week 2, they got trounced 35-0 by Buffalo. In Week 3, they mustered a late comeback vs Las Vegas only to falter in overtime after having the ball with a chance to win.
Miami’s defense isn’t the juggernaut it was last year and old friend Jacoby Brissett doesn’t necessarily have the offense firing on all cylinders (though he did surprise us in Las Vegas), so we’re backing the Colts to cover the spread by winning outright.
Another week of rest will do wonders for Carson Wentz and his sprained ankles, and Reich (hopefully) won’t make the mistake of phasing Jonathan Taylor out of the gameplan. The Colts win a close one, 27-21.
