Predictions For Betting On Titans Colts – Colts, Full Of Belief, Return Home To Face Titans
The Indianapolis Colts might have crossed the threshold last weekend, the threshold between a team that hopes it can make the playoffs and a team that knows it can make the playoffs.
Tennessee Titans @ Indianapolis Colts – Sunday, December 9
NFL betting line: Indianapolis -5.5
Why Tennessee Will Win
The betting websites that follow the NFL with particular meticulousness are likely a bit surprised by the way in which the AFC South Division has unfolded this season, but that doesn't mean Tennessee can't win this game. The Titans took these very same Indianapolis Colts to overtime over a month ago, but Indianapolis won the coin toss and scored a touchdown on the first possession of the extra period, thereby winning the game before Tennessee had a chance to get its hands on the ball. Tennessee held Houston to 24 points last week; if you hold Houston to 24 points, you're doing a very solid job on the defensive side of the ball and giving your team a chance to win.
It's not as though Tennessee can't score, either; in the Titans' four wins, they've averaged over 35 points per game. Quarterback Jake Locker is capable of brilliance; he's a remarkable athlete who just needs to channel his abilities into the feel and flow of a game with more regularity and consistency. Tennessee is right there, knocking at the doorstep. Moreover, Indianapolis has not been a dominant team at home this season; the Colts beat Miami and Buffalo in recent home games by only one score. If the Colts play another close game this week, the Titans can step in and take full advantage. All they'd need is a handful of key plays. It sounds cliché, but clichés are clichés because they are in fact true.
Why Indianapolis Will Win
When playing online poker, you need to be a cool customer, someone who doesn’t get ruffled or disturbed when situations get thorny and complicated. Andrew Luck is the coolest cat in the room.
Luck, the ice-veins quarterback who seems poised to rule the NFL in the coming decade when Tom Brady and Peyton Manning retire, is dazzling every NFL observer. He is on track to lead the Indianapolis Colts to the playoffs in his very first season. Luck led the Colts from a two-touchdown deficit in the final five minutes this past Sunday to stun the Detroit Lions on the road. Luck threw the winning touchdown pass on the final play of the game, joining a wild celebration in the end zone, one that was entirely deserved. The Colts just need to beat out either the Pittsburgh Steelers or the Cincinnati Bengals – one of the two teams – to make the playoffs in Luck's rookie campaign. Given that the Colts were 2-14 last year, it's clear to say that this team represents the biggest turnaround story in the NFL this season. This is a team to trust against a struggling opponent from Tennessee.
Who Will Win
The Colts' locker room is a much better place to be than the Titans' locker room. Indianapolis owns a lot more confidence at this point in the season and, at home, deserves a clear nod from bettors.
