NFL Playoff Betting Odds:
The Colts shocked the world by delivering a blowout against the Texans this past weekend. However, they’re not going up against Houston this weekend. In fact, they’re going up against the No. 1 scoring offense and No. 1 total offense this weekend. Although the Colts were able to hold Deshaun Watson & Co. to a mere 3 points, it’s going to be impossible to replicate those results against a team like Kansas City this Saturday. Granted, Indianapolis isn’t terrible on defense. But at the same time, there’s no way they’ll be able to keep Mahomes and his crew from running the score up this weekend. At the end of the day it will be up to the Colts offense to outscore their opponent. Fortunately the Chiefs don’t have the best defense in the NFL and Luck is more than capable of leading this team to victory.
Players to Watch: Andrew Luck (222 passing yards, 2 TD, 1 INT), Marlon Mack (148 rushing yards, 1 TD, 0 F), and Ty Hilton (85 receiving yards, 0 TD, 5 REC).
Kansas City Chiefs
The Chiefs march into this Saturday’s contest well rested following their 1st round bye. Historically the 1st round bye can always come back to bite a team in the rear so it’ll be interesting to see how KC performs. Especially since Kansas City closed the season out with a 1-2 record. It’s no secret that the Chiefs were involved in a pretty big debacle involving their running back. With Hunt no longer on the team, there’s no denying that the offense has lost a bit of their spark. However, they’re still capable of dropping 30 points on a dime.
Players to Watch: Patrick Mahomes (5,097 passing yards, 50 TD, 12 INT), Kareem Hunt (824 rushing yards, 7 TD, 0 F), and Tyreek Hill (1,479 receiving yards, 12 TD, 87 REC).
