What a crazy offseason! Today we release Carson Wentz Colts betting odds for Super Bowl 2022. The Philadelphia Eagles decided to trade quarterback Carson Wentz to Indianapolis for a 2021 third-round draft pick and a conditional 2022 second-round pick that could turn into a first-rounder.
According to reports, the Eagles will receive the 85th overall pick in this year’s draft. Also, the conditional second-rounder can become a first-round pick based on Wentz’s playing time. Wentz needs to play at least 75% of the Colts’ offensive snaps for the 2022 conditional pick to because a first round pick.
The pick could also become a first rounder if Wentz plays in 70% of the Colts’ offensive snaps. Also, the team makes the playoffs.
Wentz will be reunited with Colts head coach Frank Reich. His former offensive coordinator in Philadelphia, and help fill the void left by Philip Rivers’ retirement. With Wentz in Indianapolis, the Eagles will likely turn to Jalen Hurts as their starter. However, there are no guarantees that the starting job will automatically go to him.

Wentz published a lengthy post on his Instagram account one day after the trade was announced.
He wrote in part: “As one chapter closes, another one begins.”
The new chapter will apparently begin with Wentz wearing a new number next season, because Colts second-year receiver Michael Pittman Jr., who currently wears No. 11, says he has talked to Wentz about the number, and the answer is no on a possible switch.
“I am number 11,” Pittman said. “… I don’t think there’s any deal that is gonna be done.”
Wentz wore No. 11 while at North Dakota State University and during his first five years with the Eagles.
“Yeah, so I spoke to [Carson] and he was just seeing how locked in I was to No. 11, and I told him I was locked in — and he was like, ‘That’s cool, bro, because I’m probably gonna switch anyway,'” Pittman said. “… He asked me very respectfully, and I just appreciated him for that. I think he’s a great dude, because lots of guys with his status, they would come in and demand and stuff like that.”
