AFC Championship: Patriots hosting Indy

The New England Patriots had no problem winning and covering the posted spread against the Indianapolis Colts earlier this season as those teams get ready to meet in the AFC Championship Game at Gillette Stadium on Sunday.

New England blasted Indianapolis 42-20 as a 3-point road underdog in an OVER result for totals bettors back in Week 11 of the season, improving them to 3-0 both SU and ATS in the last three games between the teams.

But the Patriots are winless (0-5 ATS) in conference championship round since 2005. They are 2-3 SU in those games and must cover a touchdown (the line early in the week at Bovada).

The home team has won and covered four prior playoff meetings of these teams, while the Pats are just 3-9 ATS as playoff favorites since 2008.

A trend for totals bettors: the past six meetings of Colts and Pats played OVER the total.

The Colts upset the Denver Broncos 24-13 as a 7-point road underdog in the Divisional Round of the playoffs over the weekend, while the Patriots knocked off the Baltimore Ravens 35-31 but didn't cover a 6.5-point spread.
