Free Pick & Betting Predictions: Colts -3
My early lean here would have to be on Indianapolis laying just 3-points at home. This has been about as lopsided of a series as you will find in the NFL. The Colts improved to a perfect 8-0 with Andrew Luck against the Titans with a 34-26 win at Tennessee back in Week 7. Going back even further, the Indy has won 15 of the last 16 meetings.

I also think we are getting some value here. The Colts have a big advantage here coming off their bye. A spot the Colts have really done well in the past. Indianapolis is 7-2 ATS in their last 9 off a bye.
One thing you have to keep in mind with Indy’s record, is they were hit hard with injuries early in the year. They are finally starting to get healthy again. Where you really see the improvement is in their secondary, which was decimated early on.
In the first meeting against the Titans, Luck had his way with the Tennessee defense. He went 27-39 for 353 yards and 3 scores. Most importantly, he was only sacked twice. Keep in mind he did that without one of his best wide outs in Donte Moncrief. He’s back healthy and will only make it that much harder for the Titans to slow down this Colts offense.
It’s not just the Colts the Titans struggle against. Tennessee is a mere 2-12 ATS in their last 14 against the AFC South. They are also just 3-15 ATS in their last 18 against teams from the same conference. The Titans have also failed to deliver after a win. They are 0-7 ATS in their last 7 games after a victory.
The Colts on the other hand have been a great bet this time of year. Indianapolis is a dominant 8-1 ATS in their last 9 games in the month of November. The Colts are also a great home team. Indy is 27-12-1 ATS in their last 40 home games.
