ATS PICK: Indianapolis
– Bet on this, BetMGM latest line
One caveat here. If you really believe Baker Mayfield is in for a massive game, be a little bit careful here, if not, believe in the Indianapolis style and its lines.
The Colts aren’t pretty. Philip Rivers isn’t winging it all over the yard and Jonathan Taylor has been fine on the ground, but not a killer quite yet. It doesn’t matter with a defense that leads the NFL in total D, pass defense, and is tied with the fewest rushing touchdowns allowed.
Cleveland’s secondary is having a problem slowing down decent passers, Dwayne Haskins threw for over 200 yards – and teams are able to run just enough against the front to be okay.
Can the Colt O line contain Myles Garrett and the terrific Brown pass rush? The pass protection has been phenomenal, but it’s the defense that’s going to pull this off on the road.
Don’t expect fireworks or anything pretty, but the Colts will control the clock, the tempo, and the trenches, holding down the Cleveland ground game enough to pull this off.
