How far have the Colts sunk? They are 10-point underdogs to the Buccaneers.
Are the Indianapolis Colts sans Peyton Manning the worst team in the NFL? Well, if you're 10-point underdogs to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers that certainly is a point against you.
The Colts are off to a 0-3 start and even though they looked OK last week, no one seems to like the chances of them turning it around against a Bucs team that so far looks downright decent. The over/under in this game is set at 41, which means the oddsmakers are expecting most of that to come from Tampa Bay.
If the Bucs can manage to score enough to push the over, that's probably more about the lack of defense being played by the Colts. The Bucs average just 20 points a game, while the Colts are surrendering more than 28.
