Carson Wentz is to miss the next five to twelve games due to an injured left foot. The 28-year-old Indianapolis quarterback was acquired in the off-season from Philadelphia Eagles for the 2021 third round.
Colts bet big on Wentz after the surprising retirement of QB Andrew Luck in 2019. In the 2020 season, Colts was saved by QB Philip Rivers, who led the team to an 11-5 campaign but lost to Buffalo Bills in the playoff round.
Rivers retired in the off-season, and Indianapolis had odds of 25/1 in winning the Super Bowl. After Wentz’s acquisition, the chance of the Colts winning the title dropped to 20/1. Now that Wentz’s return is uncertain, the odds of Colts winning the Super Bowl have increased to 30/1.
Recently, Colts signed an agreement with FanDuel to promote fans who purchase four game tickets to get a betting credit on FanDuel. For every $200, a person will receive a Terrace Level ticket for four Colts homes games. Additionally, a fan will receive $100 in FanDuel credit.
Fans can either choose bundles from Seattle Seahawks, New York Jets, Tennessee Titans, and New England. Or from a package featuring Houston Texans, Jacksonville Jaguars, Los Angeles Rams, and Las Vegas Raiders.
