It’s the slow season of the sports calendar, but at least we’re closer to this NFL campaign kicking off. To help speed up the timeline, we have our daily NFL betting reports. We’ll be highlighting the betting action for individual teams in four Hustles per week, sorting them out by division.
So let’s welcome AFC South week by starting with the Colts.
SUPER BOWL Odds: Opened +8000 (T-26th), currently +8000 (T-24th)
Action: 0.8% tickets (23rd), 0.5% handle (25th) *Indy’s Super Bowl odds got to as long as +15000 from March 15 to 28
WIN TOTAL Odds: 6.5 (Over -140, Under +115)
Action: OVER 71% tickets, OVER 91% handle
DIVISION Odds: Opened +550 (3rd), currently +525 (3rd)
Action: 21.2% tickets (3rd), 14.8% handle (3rd)
PERUSING THE PLAYERS
Anthony Richardson opened at +750 for Offensive Rookie of the Year, however the No. 4 overall pick has seen recent momentum in this market. He’s swung from +700 to +600 in the past week, giving him the third-lowest OROY odds. Richardson has attracted the most tickets for the award at 16.0%, and ranks fourth in handle at 10.1%.
Going further on Richardson, only one rookie has ever been named NFL MVP: Jim Brown in 1957. Indy’s dual-threat quarterback has seen his MVP odds shift from a +50000 opener to currently residing at +15000. Richardson has captured 1.1% of the tickets (tied for 16th) and has drawn over four times more handle than every other rookie combined for MVP.
Ariel Epstein is swinging for the fences with two Home Run Derby picks tonight, while Daniel Parisi already has us prepped for tomorrow's Wimbledon action.
THE PROP QUEEN
Home Run Derby Winner: Vladimir Guerrero Jr. (+400) [8 p.m. ET]
"Vladdy put on a show in last HR Derby in 2019, but got tired in the end after having to partake in multiple tiebreaks. I'm worried about Pete Alonso's health with his bone bruise and wrist sprain."
HR Derby Winner: Randy Arozarena (+1000)
"Arozarena has an easy swing and he won't get tired as easily. He also has the easier half of the bracket, avoiding three of the four top favorites (Alonso, Vladdy and Julio Rodriguez)."
THE AGREEABLE ACE
Jannik Sinner vs. Roman Safiullin: Sinner 3-0 set betting (+105) [Tuesday, 9:30 a.m. ET]
"Sinner has dropped just 1 set this tournament whilst his Russian opponent has hit his ceiling at the All England Club. The lights shine ever brighter on Court 1."
Andrey Rublev vs. Novak Djokovic: Over 32.5 Games (-125) [Tuesday, 10 a.m. ET]
"Novak has played in 5 tiebreakers already this tournament. Rublev has the toolkit to pinch a set and send this match to a long 4."

Chet Holmgren — NBA Rookie of the Year (+375)
“Chet dribbles like a guard, defends like a center, hits the 3 with ease and has the fundamentals of a veteran. With his 7’6″ wingspan I wouldn’t be surprised if the ex-Gonzaga star leads the NBA in blocked shots as a rookie.”
EDITOR’S NOTE: Holmgren has already moved from +500 to +375 over the past week for NBA Rookie of the Year. So far, the Thunder big man has received the most tickets (41.9%) and second-most handle (37.1%, only behind Scoot Henderson 42.1%) to win the award.
