Sports betting news and notes: Oddsmakers not loving Indiana’s college hoops teams

Bet BetIndiana News staff

The college basketball season tips off Tuesday, November 5, but the outlook isn’t bright for the programs of the Hoosier State.

Ranked No. 23 in the preseason AP poll, Purdue provides the state the most hope for success. At 14/1 odds to win the Big Ten, however, the Boilermakers are a distant sixth on the conference futures board, a canyon away from even-money favorite Michigan State and also below Maryland (7/2), Ohio State (7/1), Michigan (10/1) and Minnesota (12/1).

Purdue loses key pieces Carsen Edwards and Ryan Kline, but juniors Nojel Eastern and Matt Haarms return to the starting lineup for coach Matt Painter’s team. The Boilermakers have been a model of consistency, finishing top-10 on KenPom’s end-of-season rankings in three of the last four years.

Is letdown looming for Colts as betting favorites vs. Broncos?

By Eric Dewberry, BetIndiana News

Colts quarterback Jacoby Brissett, a legitimate MVP candidate through the first half of the season, leads the team into Week 8 as solid favorites hosting the Broncos on Sunday (1 p.m. ET / noon CT, CBS). On advanced betting lines offered last week in Las Vegas, Indianapolis was a 4.5- to 5-point favorite, but the game reopened -6.5 after the Colts’ win over the Texans and went as low as -5.5 before settling at -6 early in the week.
The total is up to 44 following a 43.5 initial offer.
Betting market respects Colts
The point spread is flirting with the largest ever for the Colts with Brissett under center, as Indy laid 6.5 in a 31-24 home defeat to the Raiders in Week 4.
The fourth-year pro is coming off the best game of his young career, passing for an all-time high four touchdowns in a 30-23 win as a 1.5-point favorite over the Texans.
Brissett, whose only blemish in the victory was a lost fumble, compiled a 126.7 passer rating, also an all-time high in 29 career games.
His 14 touchdown passes through six contests is on pace to top the league with 37 overall, and he’s listed at 60/1 on some MVP oddsboards.
