Colts overtake Titans as AFC South favorites

The Indianapolis Colts’ convincing 34-17 victory over the Tennessee Titans on Thursday night came with an additional perk.

The Colts pulled even with the Titans at 6-3, and have taken over as favorites to win the AFC South.

Indianapolis moved from +160 before Thursday’s game to -150 at DraftKings after the victory. Tennessee’s odds lengthened from -230 to +110. The Colts’ odds shortened to -118 at BetMGM, where the Titans are being offered at -106.

The Colts own the head-to-head tiebreaker, with the teams slated to finish their season series in Indianapolis in two weeks.

Indianapolis’ AFC Championship odds have shortened to +1200 at DraftKings, just ahead of Tennessee’s (+1400) entering the weekend schedule. The Kansas City Chiefs remain the conference favorites at +165, followed by the Pittsburgh Steelers (+260), Baltimore Ravens (+500) and Buffalo Bills (+850).

The Colts are being offered at +2500 to win Super Bowl LV, while the Titans have slipped to +3000.

Indianapolis opened the season with a stunning loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars but have gone 6-2 since, with their other losses being at Cleveland and against Baltimore.

Meanwhile, the Titans have lost three of their past four games following a 5-0 start. They dropped games to Pittsburgh and at Cincinnati, with their lone win since Week 6 coming against Chicago.

Tennessee travels to Baltimore to face the Ravens in Week 11.

Bettors have not yet flocked to the swing in odds, with the Titans still bringing in 49 percent of the handle and 52 percent of the total bets placed on the AFC South winner at DraftKings. That is the same percentages as before Thursday’s loss, with the Colts bringing in 43 percent of the handle and 32 percent of the total bets.

The Houston Texans (+5000) have brought in seven percent of the handle and 14 percent of the total bets, while the Jacksonville Jaguars (+100000) sit at three and two percent.
