The current odds available for wagering at Oddsmaker, where the bonuses are the best in the business has the road team Denver Broncos favored by -2 ½ points with the total set at 40.5 points.

Both teams are suffering through disappointing seasons and out of the playoffs. Denver checks in at 4-0 and a team with offensive problems. Remarkably they are still a good defensive team ranking number one in total defense by allowing 280 yards per game. They are second in the league against the pass and fourth against the run. Quarterback play has been erratic. The team has shuffled between Trevor Siemian, Paxton Lynch and Brock Osweiler with poor results with each signal caller. The team has resorted back to the opening day starter in Siemian who many media pundits believe is their best quarterback on their roster. Point production has been lacking with the Broncos scoring 17.6 points per game which is 26th in the NFL. Denver has lost eight straight games until they defeated the New York Jets at home last week 23-0 as they cover as a one point underdog.

Indianapolis has a mark of 3-10 and 2-4 at home. Colts have been impacted by the loss of Andrew Luck for the season with shoulder injury as his surgery never properly healed from the offseason. It created a huge distraction for the team not knowing the status of their franchise quarterback through the early and mid-season. They had to make a trade with the Patriots to acquire Jacoby Brissett who has completed 59.8% of his passes for 2611 yards with 11 touchdowns and 7 picks. The past several seasons what has been hurting this Colts team has been the play of their defense. In 2017 the team ranks 30th in the NFL in total defense as the team allows 375 yards per game. Again, the pass defense has been poor with opponents passing for 257 yards per game.
