Why Should You Bet on the Colts?  

There aren’t many good reasons to bet on the Colts. Last week they weren’t able to even stop the Raiders, so it’s not surprising they’re double-digit dogs against the Chiefs.

The line on this game opened at 8.5-points but quickly moved to 10 after the loss to Oakland. Injuries are plaguing Indianapolis as well, and without T.Y. Hilton, Devin Funchess, Darius Leonard, and now Marlon Mack, the Colts are in a whole lot of trouble.

The Colts’ defense could get something going against the Chiefs, but they’re going to have to do a much better job against Patrick Mahomes than they did against Derek Carr. Nobody should get their hopes up though that the Colts’ defense can even slow down Mahomes.

Why Should You Bet on the Chiefs?  

Quarterback Patrick Mahomes has been on fire, scoring at least two touchdown passes in 14 consecutive games. But, somehow, the Lions secondary managed to shut him down in last week’s game.

The Detroit Lions put up a dogfight against the Chiefs, but I doubt the Colts have that type of a fight in them so that this game might turn into a massacre.

However, if Hilton and Mack are healthy enough to return and play in this game for the Colts, things could turn sour for the Chiefs. Kansas City’s defense isn’t as stellar as its offense, and both of these players could make them pay.
