Not only did the Indianapolis Colts fail to cover the spread against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 1, but they lost the game straight up.
Bettors clearly feel burned, as 73% of spread tickets are taking Vikings and the points for today’s game.
However, with the public loading up on Minnesota sharps are pivoting and taking Indy, and boy are they slamming the Colts.

Vikings vs. Colts Betting Pick
Sports Insights’ Bet Signals have tracked one wave of smart money landing on Indy, meaning bettors with the respect to force a reaction from oddsmakers are on the home favorite.
As mentioned above, 73% of bettors are backing Minnesota, yet that significant majority accounts for just 55% of the money (find real-time public betting data here).
This is a tell-tale sign that the largest wagers are flowing on the Colts.
With heavy loot from long-term winning bettors piling up on Indy, Philip Rivers & Co. have pushed to a very juicy -3 at many books across the market, and have even crossed the 3-point threshold at DraftKings earlier this morning for the first time since opening.
A half-point move from -3 to -3.5 may not seem like much, but that half-point represents an adjustment off the most important number in NFL betting as 14.8% of all NFL games have finished with a margin of victory of three points since 2003.
If you do plan on tailing the sharps, be sure to shop for the best line and lock in one of the shops, like PointsBet, still hanging Colts -3 — our NFL odds page even does the work for you with real-time odds from multiple sportsbooks.
