Rams Colts Betting Tips – Rams Hold Their Own Against Dismantled Colts

St. Louis Rams @ Indianapolis Colts – Sunday August 12, 2012 1:30PM EST

The best online betting sites have been waiting for this day all summer long. It is the day that Indianapolis Colts rookie quarterback Andrew Luck finally starts his journey to the NFL Hall of Fame. It is the moment when the Indianapolis Colts can start making room for more Lombardi Trophies in their office lobby. But before people start handing Andrew Luck any coveted NFL hardware, he has to earn it first. It will not be easy to earn his way with the Colts team he has been given.

Jeff Fisher took over the St. Louis Rams over the summer and had his defensive coordinator, Gregg Williams, in place as well. Once the league handed down its suspensions for the New Orleans Saints "bountygate" scandal, Williams was lost to the Rams for good. To make matters worse, starting quarterback Sam Bradford is still recovering from an injury and his status for this game is still unknown. This game promises to be interesting, but it won't be a barn burner.

Indianapolis Colts

The football betting world has big plans for Andrew Luck, but the world is going to have to wait for Luck to battle through the rebuilding process before he can start stringing together wins, much less championships. The only proven weapon that Luck has is veteran wide receiver Reggie Wayne. Almost all of the offensive line in Indy is new and the receivers are not familiar either. The prevailing feeling is that this team will develop and grow up together. But with so many rookies and players that are still figuring out their positions, it could be some time before Indy fans start to see the resurgence of the Colts.

On defense, the Colts are trying to bring in draft picks to shore up what was a pathetic defensive showing last year. The Colts know that the defense shares in the blame for last season's debacle just as much as the offense. The only question is how to fix it before Luck gets injured.

St. Louis Rams

With Sam Bradford potentially on the shelf for this game, Jeff Fisher will get a chance to see how deep his offensive roster is. There is a chance that Bradford could come out and play the first series. But even if he doesn't, the Rams have some interesting pieces on offense that could come together very nicely.

The betting sites know that Fisher is behind the 8-ball with his defense, but there is good potential on his defense as well. The Rams know that Fisher is the kind of guy that can get the most out of the players. Now the Rams just need to give Fisher some players to work with to create a winner.

The Bottom Line

This game comes down to experience and depth. The Rams have some experience in its second and third-strings, while the Colts are going to spend at least one full season trying to find an identity. This game will be a chance for Colts fans to get a quick glimpse of Andrew Luck, but its real value will be in evaluating the future direction of the Indianapolis Colts.

Pick: St. Louis Rams
