Colts Have Had Packers' Number

The Indianapolis Colts (3-5 SU) and Green Bay Packers (4-3 SU) have spent the last few years as heavyweights in their respective conferences, but the tide could be turning in 2016. Week 9 of the NFL slate presents a matchup between the Colts and Pack as both squads begin the battle for the playoffs.

Shark Bites
  • The Packers are 14-6 ATS in their last 20 games as a favorite of 7.5 or more.
  • The Colts are 6-0 ATS in their last six games in November.
  • The total has gone UNDER in nine of the Packers' last 10 games at home.

Oddsmakers opened the Packers as 7-point home favorites with a total of 53.

Green Bay and Indianapolis have a penchant for participating in some high-scoring affairs when they face off on the gridiron, so sportsbooks will likely get a lot of action on the OVER in this one. The OVER is 4-1 in the last five matchups between the clubs.

It’s strange to see Indy as such a big underdog. Sure, the Colts defense is leaky and their offensive line is arguably the worst in the league, but they’re a very profitable 10-1 SU and ATS in their last 11 games as an underdog of 7.5 or less.

Indianapolis is also a fantastic 6-2 ATS in its past eight games against Aaron Rodgers and company.

OVER bettors have been loving the Colts this season, and for good reason. Six of Indy’s eight games have gone above the closing total so far.
