With many experts proclaiming the 2005 Indianapolis Colts as potentially the greatest team ever, Sunday's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars is certain to be one of the highlights of Week 14 of the NFL season. Bodog bookmakers have posted the odds.
NFL opponents aren't the only ones concerned about the Indianapolis Colts' drive for perfection. In an article to be published on Thursday, online gambling magazine BodogNation points out that bettors who wagered $100 on the Colts to win every game this season would have profited by $519.
"Sportsbooks that depend on the uncertainty of wagering on the NFL are at risk by a Colts' team that looks more and more like a sure thing," says Calvin Ayre, Founder and CEO of Bodog. "With four games left and bettors jumping on board in droves, there may be lots of sleepless nights for the bookmakers."

The Colts (12-0) are 8.5-point favorites as they head to Alltel Stadium to face the Jaguars (9-3) in hopes of clinching the AFC South and home-field advantage throughout the playoffs. Will Peyton Manning turn on his "A" game and put the inexperience of Jacksonville quarterback David Garrard to the test?
Another key game this weekend is the NFC South battle between the Carolina Panthers (9-3) and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (8-4). Tampa will be seeking revenge after a defeat at the hands of the Panthers on Nov. 6. With such a tight race in the NFC this year, neither team can afford a loss. The Panthers opened as 6-point favorites for what's likely to be a defensive matchup.
In a game with big playoff implications, the Kansas City Chiefs (8-4) head to Dallas to take on the Cowboys (7-5). Both teams are aiming for a wild-card berth and whoever loses will suffer a serious setback. Kansas City and Dallas both must win at least three of their final four games to realize a chance to play in the postseason. Can the Chiefs rely on running back Larry Johnson to lead the charge? Cowboys opened as 3-point favorites.
