Colts vs. Saints Week 8 Opening Odds Show AFC South Race Isn’t Over

The Colts sit two games behind the Jags in the AFC South but could make up ground this week against the Saints


Indianapolis has lost three of its past four games and is without Anthony Richardson for the remainder of the season, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t have hope!

The Colts are 1.5-point favorites over the visiting Saints in Week 8, and a win would keep them right in the thick of the AFC South with Jacksonville holding a two-game lead.

It can be a challenge to bet on games with spreads as low as this, but there’s still betting value to be had (and $200 in guaranteed bonus bets)!

Let’s dig into the opening odds:

Colts vs. Saints Week 8 Opening Odds

Indianapolis is listed at -112 moneyline odds with the total points set at 43.5, which means the Colts are expected to win something close to a 23-21 game. 

There’s good reason to believe they can pull it off, too! 

The Colts have had one of the more consistent offenses in the NFL this season under new head coach Shane Steichen – scoring 20-plus points in all seven games this season even without Richardson!

New Orleans, on the other hand, has underperformed offensive expectations, with four games scoring less than 20 points. 

That offense has made it hard on the Saints to cover spreads this season, with just a 1-5-1 mark against the spread (ATS). 

That hasn’t been the case for the Colts, who are 4-3 ATS as oddsmakers may have been doubting their early-season competitiveness. 

If you’re thinking about betting on the over/under 43.5 total points, proceed with caution. 

The over has hit in five of seven games for Indy, but just ONCE in seven games for the Saints.
