2018 Indianapolis Colts NFL Betting Odds and Schedule
There is a saying with which many customers at the best NFL gambling sites must be familiar. “If I didn’t have bad luck, I’d have no luck at all.” If former Colts head coach Chuck Pagano had good luck, or just regular luck, he might still have a job. The problem is Pagano had no luck at all. Or rather, he had no Luck at all. At least not since 2016. Which is when franchise? starting? quarterback Andrew Luck played his last regular season game thus far.
Luck’s career got off to a very promising start. The Colts made the playoff in each of his first three seasons, during which he didn’t miss a single game. However, his meteoric rise was truncated by injuries. He missed nine games in 2015 and the entire 2017 season. But even when he missed just one game, as in 2016, the Colts fell short of the postseason.

The good news is that, according to GM Chris Ballard, Luck “doesn’t need surgery.” That may be the doctors’ prognosis, but physicians can’t see the future. Nor can even the best NFL gambling sites for that matter. So the questions remain whether a) can he stay healthy? and b) can he return to top form? Perhaps a better question would be, can the offensive line protect him? Indy had 10 different offensive linemen play at least 140 snaps, according to PFF. Moreover, the colts used those linemen in 18 different combinations. Finally, their pass-blocking efficiency sucks.
