NFL Futures Odds: Carson Wentz Injury Sees Colts Lengthen In Several Betting Markets

  • How has the Carson Wentz injury affected the Colts' futures odds?
  • Week 1 odds examined, are they still favorites to beat the Seahawks?
  • Latest Super Bowl odds

The Carson Wentz's injury is a crushing one for the Colts. It’s not clear how long he’ll be out, the Colts said anywhere from 5-12 weeks, so oddsmakers aren’t sure exactly how to move their odds. Still, they know that this news is a major hit to the Colts on multiple odds markets. 

Prior to Wentz’s injury, the Colts were favored in their Week 1 matchup with the Seahawks. They were given -124 odds to the Seahawks +125. Now, the Colts are the underdogs with the Seahawks sitting at -140 and the Colts at +120. 

The Colts, who were already 2nd in their division on the odds market, are now even further in the hole. They’ve seen their odds lengthen from +115 to +180. Meanwhile, the Titans' odds have shortened from -115 to -134. 

The Colts odds to win the AFC have also lengthened. Prior to the injury, the Colts were given +1400 odds, the 5th best on the market. Now they’re given +1800 odds, 8th best and tied with the Patriots. 

Lastly, the Colts have seen their Super Bowl odds lengthen. Once +2800, a top-10 team on the market, the Colts now sit +3300, 12th on the market. 

Carson Wentz was also among the favorites to win the Comeback Player of the Year at +1000, now he sits at +2500. Without Wentz playing at that kind of level, the Colts aren’t in a position to compete. If anything, these odds changes are lenient for the Colts, and only because oddsmakers don’t know how long he’ll be hurt. Look for the Colts' odds to tank with each passing week unless either they make a move for a new QB or Jacob Eason turns into a starting-caliber player.
