Indianapolis Colts vs Green Bay Packers 2010 NFL Predictions, 2010 NFL Odds & 2010 NFL Picks: The Colts and Packers meet tonight at Lambeau Field in a week three preseason clash that many feel could be a Super Bowl preview. This evening's preseason special is scheduled to get underway at 8:00pm ET on ESPN. 2010 NFL Predictions & Odds at SBGglobal.com have Green Bay listed as a -3.5 against the spread home favorite; the Over/Under is set at 44.
Indianapolis has looked dreadful in its first two preseason outings, losing 37-17 to the Forty-Niners and 34-21 to the Bills. The Colts put up 14 first quarter points last week against Buffalo; however, the Bills posted 21 points after a Peyton Manning pass intended for Anthony Gonzalez got picked off and returned 78 yards for a touchdown.
Manning finished the night with a 66.3 passer rating, despite throwing for 91 yards and a touchdown. Curtis Painter, No. 18's beleaguered backup, finally had a quality outing, though, completing 5-of-6 passes for 97 yards and a touchdown.
The Colts defense saw the Bills rack up 367 total yards, 144 of which came on the ground, a line Indy Head Coach Jim Caldwell hopes is not a portend of things to come. Buffalo rookies Joique Bell and C.J. Spiller combined for 134 yards and two touchdowns on 21 carries.
Green Bay won its second preseason affair, squeaking by the Seahawks 27-24 at Qwest Field in Seattle. The Packers built a 14-7 first quarter led after quarterback Aaron Rodgers connected on touchdown strikes of one and four yards. Rodgers completed 8-of-11 passes for 116 yards in his two series of play.
Green Bay's offense continued to produce with Rodgers on the bench, concluding the game with 29 first downs and 421 total yards.
The Packers had a couple of defensive rookies standout in the ball game in linebacker Frank Zombo and safety Morgan Burnett. Zombo, a free agent out of Central Michigan, led the team in tackles with five and produced a sack while Burnett had three tackles.
2010 NFL Preseason Betting Trend: The Colts are 1-5 straight up and against the spread in the preseason under Head Coach Jim Caldwell.
Indianapolis Colts +3.5 (-110), Over 44 (-110)
