What’s On The Line?
Do you believe in karma? The Colts could have squashed the Jets back in Week 16 with a win but instead, they let up to rest their starters. The Jets needed to win in both Weeks 16 and 17 just to qualify for the playoffs, so they gladly took advantage. But will the Colts be regretting the fact that they let up now that they have to face the Jets again?
The Colts gave up their perfect regular season to be in this spot so expect them to be focused. Their main goal was a Super Bowl and that’s where they will head with one more win.
Offensive Matchups: Jets vs Colts betting odds
The Jets offense is fairly vanilla, but it has worked in the first two weeks. They run the ball well and make the occasional throws. They may have to do a little more than that this week but the Jets game plan is to stick with the run as long as they are within arm’s reach of the lead. If they get behind early, they’ll have to breakaway but otherwise, they’ll pound the ball and make some throws here and there.

Defensive Matchups: Jets vs Colts betting odds
The Jets defense has been so-so in the playoffs but they have feasted off some mistakes. Essentially, Darrelle Revis and Jim Leonhard have made some big plays in the first two games to cause turnovers and get this team more chances. Without those turnovers, though, the Jets might be home already. They’ll have to come up with a couple more against the Colts. They are ranked No. 1 overall but that ranked is somewhat inflated by stomping bad opponents throughout the year.
For the Colts, their plan is simple: stop the run. They did it last week against Baltimore, so it shouldn’t be too difficult to do it again. They held the Jets to just three first half points in Week 16 so they know what works. They held the Jets to just 120 yards of offense in the first half. If the Colts stop the run, they will win this game easily.

Over/Under Picks: Jets vs Colts betting odds
The Jets defense is solid and they aren’t going to let anyone walk up and down the field while the Colts unit is underrated, and they won’t let the Jets run freely. That sets up a good play for the under in this contest unless we see an inordinate amount of turnovers.
Pick: Under 41
Outlook and Pick: Jets vs Colts betting
NFL betting fans should be aware that this will be the Jets third straight road game, which is never easy. Last week, they were a little lucky as San Diego Chargers Pro Bowl kicker Nate Kaeding missed three field goals in a 17-14 win. Even with those missed field goals and a couple of turnovers, the Chargers still only lost by three points.
