Last Game

Baltimore put up a solid effort, but came up just short in their narrow 28-24 Week 8 matchup at home loss against Pittsburgh Steelers while failing to cover the spread as a 4-point home favorite. Reigning league MVP Lamar Jackson passed for 208 yards and two touchdowns while adding 65 rushing yards, but the former Heisman Trophy winner tossed a pair of costly picks that Baltimore could not overcome. Defensively, Baltimore limited Ben Roethlisberger to a modest 182 passing yards, but gave up two TD passes while failing to record an interception against the future Hall of Famer.

Unfortunately, the Colts have also gone 0-3-1 ATS in their last 4 games as an underdog and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games as a home underdog.
