With one of the most well-rounded rosters in the league, the Indianapolis Colts added eight-time Pro Bowl quarterback Philip Rivers in hopes that he's able to take this team over the top. Some questioned the decision, though, as Rivers was coming off an underwhelming 2019 campaign.

But if the latest odds are any indication, Rivers and the Colts look poised for a really strong season, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.

Colts Win Total

Indianapolis' win total has been given an over/under for 8.5, with -160 odds on the over and +135 on the under. That's the same line that the Tennessee Titans were given, though the Titans have -110 odds on both sides.

It's close, but that gives Indianapolis the highest projected win total in the division. This projection is backed up by the odds to win the division, as the Colts are available at +135 to hoist the AFC South crown, ahead of the Titans (+165), the Houston Texans (+300) and Jacksonville Jaguars (+2000).

Whether or not the Colts can actually pull this off in Rivers' first season with the team remains to be seen, but this is certainly an encouraging projection for the organization.
