TY Hilton Colts

It seems as if the stars have aligned and the Indianapolis Colts were not meant to make the playoffs this season. Just about everything that could have gone wrong has gone wrong for the Colts, and it appears that injured quarterback Andrew Luck will not return to action for Sunday’s clash with the Houston Texans.

Shark Bites
  • The Colts are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games after consecutive losses.
  • The total has gone UNDER in seven of the Texans' last nine games in December.
  • The total has gone UNDER in six of the Colts' last eight games at home.

This week’s game will decide who will claim sole ownership of the dreadful AFC South, as both teams are sitting with identical 6-7 SU records. The good news for Colts backers is they’ve historically fared well against the Texans, going 6-0 SU and 5-0-1 ATS in their last six versus the division rivals.

Lucas Oil Stadium has been a boon for UNDER bettors lately, with the OVER/UNDER going 2-6 in the Colts’ previous eight home games.
