Peyton Who? Colts 3-0 ATS with Dan Orlovsky

With Kerry Collins and Curtis Painter under center for the first 11 weeks of the season, Indianapolis went winless and posted a dismal 2-9 record against the spread (ATS).

After their Week 12 loss to the Carolina Panthers, Colts head coach Jim Caldwell installed Dan Orlovsky as the team’s new starting quarterback.

Since the change was made, Indy has won three straight games ATS, highlighted by its first straight up win of the season last week against Tennessee.

The table below shows Indianapolis’ performance since Orlovsky became the team’s starter.
