Super Bowl Lines – Caldwell looking wiser now Sports Betting

February 6th, 2010 by Leave a comment Go to comments

Super Bowl lines opened with the Indianapolis Colts as 5-point sports betting favorites over the New Orleans Saints in the 2010 Super Bowl.

Super Bowl lines handicappers will be evaluating an Indianapolis team that went 14-2 straight up and 10-5-1 against the spread during the regular season while capturing the imagination of the sports betting world by winning their first 14 games.

While many in sports betting were starting to think that the Colts could be the first team since the 1972 Miami Dolphins to run the table and go undefeated Indianapolis coach Jim Caldwell put an end to the suspense as he played reserves in the final two games that the Colts lost. The Colts had the best shot at an undefeated season since the 2008 New England Patriots, who made it all the way to Super Sunday before losing to the New York Giants in an epic and heartbreaking upset.

While Caldwell was ripped for “tanking” those final two games nobody in Indianapolis seems to be complaining now as the Colts are in the Super Bowl and healthy. If Peyton Manning or another key player would have gone down Caldwell and Colts fans would be sick to their stomachs while watching another team on Super Sunday.
