Colts 2024 Super Bowl odds (New-look Colts a longshot)
The Matt Ryan experiment didn’t last long in Indianapolis last season, causing the Colts to fire coach Frank Reich.
It doesn’t appear that the rebuild will be a quick turnaround for Indianapolis. The Colts hired a new head coach in Shane Steichen, the former offensive coordinator for the Philadelphia Eagles.
Owning the fourth pick in this year’s NFL Draft, it’s possible that the Colts take their new franchise quarterback, or another franchise-changing player.
Judging by their odds to win Super Bowl LVIII, the player they select isn’t likely to get them back on the fast track to winning – at least not this fall.

Colts are longshots for Super Bowl
No matter what coaching or personnel changes the Colts make, it’s probably not going to be enough to push them into playoff contention this season.
Oddsmakers have them listed at +15000 odds, ahead of only the Houston Texans and Arizona Cardinals at +20000.
There are some bright spots to stay encouraged about, like a strong running game powered by Jonathan Taylor and a front seven that generated the 11th-most sacks in the NFL.
Finding an answer at quarterback is the biggest issue. Fans saw four games of Sam Ehlinger, but the results weren’t ideal. The second-year quarterback lost all four games he played in, failing to throw for more than 209 yards while finishing with three touchdowns and three interceptions.
If Indy can find a suitable replacement for Ryan/Ehlinger, it might not take too long to get back on track, especially with Taylor and receiver Michael Pittman Jr.
Until then, though, winning won’t be easy for the Colts.
