Colts Odds for Super Bowl and Individual Awards entering Week 14
A look at Super Bowl and individual award odds for the Indianapolis Colts entering Week 14.
After 13-straight games, the Indianapolis Colts will finally have a week off from action as they rest up during their bye week. They enter the break at 7-6, and just outside the playoffs.
Although Indianapolis is resting, the odds never do. In addition to the team’s Super Bowl odds, there are a few players who have a chance to bring home an individual award. The last four weeks of the Colts schedule will decide how they finish in the playoff race and the race for individual awards.
A big finish that gets Indy to the postseason may also bring some hardware back to the city. Let’s take a look at Colts odds across the board.

Colts Super Bowl odds entering Week 14
Starting with the most important trophy in football, the Lombardi trophy, Indianapolis is just outside the top 10. Indy currently has +3000 odds to win the Super Bowl which is 12th-best in the NFL.
The first two games the Colts play after the bye week are against the New England Patriots and Arizona Cardinals. They have the third and fourth-best odds to win the Super Bowl at +700 and +750 respectively. How Indianapolis competes in those games will drastically impact all three team’s odds at the Super Bowl.
Indianapolis is +1750 to make the Super Bowl, giving them the seventh-best odds to win the AFC. Two spots ahead of Indy are the division rival Tennessee Titans with +1000 odds, but they still haven’t locked up the AFC South.
Colts odds to win the AFC South
In Week 8 when the Titans completed the season sweep of Indianapolis, many thought the division race was over. Since that game, Indy has won four of five and Tennessee has gone 2-2, so the door is still open.
The Titans are still the odds on favorite at -1200 to win the division, but the Colts are still alive at +475. Depending on how these next five weeks unfold, the odds could become closer and Indianapolis may sneak out a division title.
If they do, it’ll probably be because Jonathan Taylor dominated down the stretch, rushing the team to consecutive victories.
Jonathan Taylor MVP odds entering Week 14
Taylor is a legitimate MVP candidate for the Colts with +1300 odds entering Week 14. His 1,348 rushing yards and 16 touchdowns have him with the ninth-best MVP odds this late in the season.
He does have the best odds of a non-quarterback, but his running back designation will make the award an uphill battle for him. He has four games left to make his case and if he leads Indianapolis to the postseason, it will be a very convincing case.
Colts odds for other individual awards
One award that Taylor is the favorite for is the rushing title with -5000 odds. He’s 370 yards ahead of Joe Mixon, who has the second-most rushing yards in the league, so that seems like a sure bet.
Another Indianapolis player with high odds to take home an award is Carson Wentz. The quarterback has the third-best odds at +1750 to win Comeback Player of the Year. His rebound in Indy has been largely recognized but he’s still comfortably behind Dak Prescott and Joe Burrow who are playing well after catastrophic lower-body injuries.
The MVP of the Colts defense, Darius Leonard, is tied at +5000 for the 10th best odds to win Defensive Player of the Year. Leonard has been a turnover-forcing machine this season but he’s a long shot for the award as there have been plenty of defensive standouts around the league.
Surely Leonard would love to be Defensive Player of the Year, but it’s fair to assume he’d love a Super Bowl even more. Those are the odds the team will be focused on improving when they return from the bye.
