NFL Gambling Update: With Luck out, Colts turn to Tolzien for Week 1

09.05.2017     11:37 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.

As expected, Andrew Luck is a no-go for Week 1's opener at the Los Angeles Rams. That means Scott Tolzien and his career 66.4 QB Rating will be under center. The Colts traded for New England's Jacoby Brissett which signals yet another red flag that Luck's shoulder is a mess. How much does Luck mean to the pointspread? The betting markets are saying about a touchdown as the Rams are currently -3.5 home chalk.

“That’s why we brought him here,’’ Chuck Pagano said of Brissett. “He’s no different than anybody else. He’s going to have an opportunity to compete.’’ However, he quickly added, “Scott is the starter. Again, he’s got to produce.

“Everybody’s got to produce.’’

NFL Betting News: It sure doesn't sound like Andrew Luck is ready for the regular season

If you haven't been following the Andrew Luck saga, you should be. With each passing day it gets more and more obvious that Luck's shoulder is still not healed. Yet, here we have head coach Chuck Pagano acting like someone asked him to solve a riddle. Here's a great editorial that senses this whole thing is a scam. In the end, bettors had better get ready for Scott Tolzien or Stephen Morris.

 "That's a great question," he said, pausing behind the microphone. "You guys are trying to find a way to get to the end result here. Almost got me."

"I'm not a bookie," he said. "I'm not an odds maker. So I'm not allowed to put numbers on things like that."

The Colts open the 2017 NFL season on Sept. 10 against the Los Angeles Rams. That’s 13 days from Monday, the day Chuck Pagano was professing to have not seen his franchise quarterback, the highest-paid player in the NFL as recently as last summer, throw the football after surgery on the labrum in his right shoulder. If Luck doesn’t play against the Rams, and I’m going to go ahead and say it – he won’t play against the Rams – the Colts will start Scott Tolzien or Stephen Morris.
