Indianapolis Colts (+2500 to win Super Bowl, BetMGM)

2021 record: 9-8 (2nd in AFC South)

The Colts could not wait one minute to show Carson Wentz the door after his late-season collapse in 2021. In came Matt Ryan, the former MVP who is hoping for a similar career renaissance to another quarterback named Matt: Stafford, with the Rams.

One might think the Colts are farther away from the Super Bowl than the Rams were when they landed Stafford, but are they? They’ve got plenty of superstars, and best-at-their-position players: RB Jonathan Taylor, OG Quenton Nelson, LB Shaquille (Darius) Leonard. At less premier positions, they are not near the all-time greatness of an Aaron Donald, but it’s a loaded roster. Is Ryan the final piece?

At 37, Ryan’s days of being an elite quarterback are behind him, but he remained an efficient passer in a brutal situation during his final years in Atlanta. With a good offensive line, an emerging wide receiver in Michael Pittman, and the all-world rushing talent of Taylor, this team can make some noise in the weak AFC South.
