Divisional Round: Colts battling Broncos

The Denver Broncos won but didn't cover against the Indianapolis Colts when they met back in September as Peyton Manning gets set to take on his old team once again in an AFC Divisional Playoffs matchup on Sunday afternoon.

The Broncos got past the Colts 31-24 but didn't manage to cover the 8.5-point spread at home when the teams met on September 7 in an OVER result. That was Denver's seventh straight ATS loss against the Colts dating back to 2005.

Indianapolis advanced to the second round of the playoffs with a 26-10 win over the Cincinnati Bengals as a 3-point home favorite on the NFL betting lines on Wild Card Weekend. Denver received a bye into the second round.

The Denver Broncos sport a record of 12-4 and 8-8 ATS heading into this betting matchup, while the Indianapolis Colts sit at 12-5 and 11-5-1 ATS on the season. The over under totals records are 10-6 for the Broncos and 9-8 for the Colts.
