The buzz surrounding the Colts entering the 2020 season focuses on Philip Rivers’ acclimation to Indianapolis in his first year outside of the state of California. With an impressive offensive line and an improving defense, the Colts are the favorites in the AFC South and could be poised for a playoff run.
Sean Koerner analyzes their win total.
Colts Win Total
Sean Koerner, the Director of Predictive Analytics at Action, breaks down how he’s betting the Colts’ win total.
The Colts have the easiest strength of schedule based on my ratings, an elite offensive line, a solid run game and a defense that should see a considerable boost from the addition of DeForest Buckner.
With their setup, it makes sense they’re the favorites to win the AFC South (+120 at DraftKings).
Their 5-2 start after Andrew Luck’s retirement was one of the biggest surprises of 2019. It all fell apart as they went 2-7 over their final nine games, but they were the third-youngest team last season per Football Outsiders’ Snap-Weighted Age metric.
The addition of Philip Rivers should provide a boost in leadership. Rivers, of course, is prone to the occasional unforced error. But playing behind one of the league’s best offensive lines will help limit those.
I am right in line with their win total of 9, so this is a pass for me.
