WILLEMSTAD, CURACAO (October 19, 2005)-We're only six weeks into the NFL season and the Colts own the league's only perfect record, while the Texans are the only NFL team yet to win a game. As happens every season when one team appears to be dominant, talk of Indianapolis challenging the 1972 Dolphins as the only team to finish the regular season undefeated has already surfaced. Meanwhile, Houston appears poised to challenge one of the most dubious NFL records by finishing the 16-game regular season without a single win. With the Colts and Texans looking like solid contenders for very different NFL team records, today released odds on Indianapolis finishing undefeated and Houston going winless this season.

The largest sports betting site on the Internet, originally opened wagering on the Colts finishing a perfect 16-0 immediately following their Monday night win over the Rams. When betting opened, Indy was listed at 10/1 odds to become the first team since the 1972 Dolphins to finish with an unblemished regular season record. Since then bettors have backed the Colts going undefeated, dropping the odds on Peyton Manning leading the team to a perfect season to 7/1. The odds that Indy will simply be another team unable to match the record-holding Dolphins stand as a 1/9 favorite.

At the other end of the spectrum are the Houston Texans, who appear in complete disarray after starting the season with five straight losses. Since no team has ever gone winless in a 16-game regular season, is giving the Texans the benefit of the doubt, listing the team as an enormous 12/1 long shot to set the single-season record for most losses. The odds are clearly in the favor of Houston winning at least one regular season game this year, currently standing at 1/17.

"There are several reasons why no NFL team has ever finished a regular season with either an undefeated or winless record since the league went to a 16-game schedule in 1978 - the highly competitive nature of the league, long season, key injuries and difficult scheduling just to name but a few," said Simon Noble of "With upcoming games at New England and hosting Pittsburgh, it remains a long shot that Indy will go 16-0, but bettors appear to believe that the team's improved defense give the Colts the edge with a good chance to finish perfect. The Texans may be the worst team in the NFL, but history dictates that the parity between teams will get Houston at least one win this season."

Current Odds: *All Odds Subject To Change*

Will The Indianapolis Colts Finish 16-0 In The Regular Season? Yes 7/1 No 1/9

Will The Houston Texans Finish 0-16 In The Regular Season? Yes 12/1 No 1/17
