Against the Spread (Devlin Duckett)
The Indianapolis Colts have a strong, well-rounded team and have won four of their last five games. However, the Buffalo Bills have morphed into an offensive juggernaut behind their star quarterback, MVP candidate Josh Allen.
The Bills rank second in scoring and total yards, averaging 31.3 PPG and 396.4 YPG this season. Buffalo has won six consecutive contests, and has averaged a whopping 47.3 PPG in its three most recent victories.
Two of these offensive explosions came against the sixth and seventh-ranked defenses in the NFL (Miami and New England). The Bills closed the second half of the 2020 season with a perfect 8-0 record ATS. Buffalo is hosting this playoff game vs Indianapolis with Super Bowl Odds aspirations and a “get it done” mindset. In Ralph Wilson Stadium this year, the Bills have posted a 7-1 record SU, while going 6-2 ATS.
I’m not suggesting that the Colts will be pushovers here, but the Bills should win this game by at least 10 points. Bills 37, Colts 25
Over/Under (Zack Robinson)
The Indianapolis Colts have found a new stallion in rookie RB Jonathan Taylor, making them a dual-threat team. Taylor finished with 1,169 rushing yards (third-best in the league) and he comes off a 253-yard, two-touchdown performance (Week 17).
Philip Rivers came to the Colts to win a Lombardi Trophy and all he needs to do is not to give the ball away. With a powerful backfield (Jonathan Taylor, Nyheim Hines, Jordan Wilkins) and a good defense, Rivers has a good chance of winning what he couldn’t with the Chargers.
The Colts average 28.2 points per game and the total has gone over in eight of their last 12 games.
Josh Allen finished with 4,544 passing yards (fifth-best), but that’s not all, the Buffalo Bills also have. Add in the league’s receiving yards leader in Stefon Diggs, who finished with 1,535 yards.
Buffalo’s offense includes too many weapons; Allen, Diggs, Zack Moss, Davin Singletary, Cole Beasley, John Brown, Gabriel Davis, Isaiah McKenzie, Dawson Knox and Antonio Williams.
The Bills average 31.3 points per game (second-best) and the total has gone over in 11 of their last 16 games.
