November 10, 2005 – After a milestone week in the NFL, bodoglife.com is gearing up for a betting bonanza as the unbeaten Indianapolis Colts – fresh off a primetime win against their nemesis – look to prey on the Houston Texans. bodoglife.com bookmakers have posted the odds for all Week 10 games. The Colts (8-0) pounded the defending champion New England Patriots 40-21 on Monday Night Football and, as a result, opened as 17.5-point favorites against the lowly Texans (1-7).
“They’re halfway there and the momentum is all theirs: Can the Colts continue their perfect season?” asks Calvin Ayre, Founder and CEO of bodoglife.com, referring to the Colts’ domination of the NFL. “And will the Eagles be able to put the locker-room controversies behind them? Lots of questions to be answered in a weekend that promises several exciting games.”
After beating the team that’s eliminated them from the playoffs the past two years, the Colts return home looking to secure their ninth consecutive win of the season. If they’re successful, they’ll be the first club to start 9-0 since the 2003 Kansas City Chiefs. The 1972 Miami Dolphins are the only team to go an entire NFL season undefeated.
The big question for bettors in a game featuring such a heavy favorite is whether the Colts can cover the 17.5-point spread? And will this be a high-scoring game with the over/under at 45 points?
Also of interest to fans and bettors is the Monday night game between NFC East rivals Dallas (5-3) and Philadelphia (4-4). Much attention will be focused on the Eagles, who will aim to fly without suspended wide receiver Terrell Owens.
With the highly publicized Owens affair looming over the Eagles’ players and management, the question is whether quarterback Donovan McNabb can dominate without his star receiver? The Eagles, who are 10-3 against the spread (ATS) under the Monday night lights since 1980, are a 3-point home favorite against the Cowboys, who have been successful on Monday nights as a road dog.
Another Week 10 game with playoff implications is the Washington Redskins (5-3) and Tampa Bay Buccaneers (5-3) game. The Redskins, who defeated the Eagles 17-10 last week, are 1.5-point favorites over the host Buccaneers.
On the NFC West front, the Seattle Seahawks, a dominant force this year with a 6-2 record, face their rivals from St. Louis. The Rams (4-4) will need a win this weekend to get back in the division race. bodoglife.com bookmakers have the Hawks as 7-point favorites.
