Popular Indiana Sports Bets

If you want to bet on a local team, there are two major leagues that you can bet on. The Indiana Pacers are one of the most iconic teams, made famous by Reggie Miller and there is also the Indianapolis Colts for a football bet!

Sports Betting Indiana Pacers (NBA)

The Indiana Pacers are a middle of the road team. Nothing too flash or fancy. A rock solid team, that needs a star player. If you place a bet on them, it can go either 50/50.

Sports Betting Indianapolis Colts (NFL)

The Colts currently have a losing record, and really need to bring it home if they want to make the playoffs. My gut feel is that the remainder of the season will be a disappointment. Look to bet against them, and pick the right timing.
