INDIANAPOLIS COLTS @ BUFFALO BILLS

The .500 Colts head to Western New York to take on a 6-3 Bills side that sent Indianapolis home in the Wildcard round last post-season. Will Jonathan Taylor & Co get some revenge, or will Josh Allen and the Bills pick up another win as they chase the AFC’s #1 seed? 

Buffalo got back to winning ways with a big win over the Jets last week in a game that saw each member of the Buffalo secondary record a turnover. Josh Allen bounced back from his poor performance against Jacksonville with a strong performance, throwing for 366 yards and 2 TDs, with Stefon Diggs being the primary recipient of Allen’s big day with over 160 yards and a TD of his own. The absence of Spencer Brown will be a big loss to an inconsistent Bills O-Line and could pave the way for the destructive force that is DeForest Buckner to wreak havoc. 

The Colts have won four of their previous five games and are riding the hot hand of second-year RB Jonathan Taylor. The former Wisconsin ball-carrier is making his argument to be considered OPOY with his recent performances, 110 or more total yards in seven straight games, as well as 10 TDs in the same time frame, makes Taylor the NFL’s most in-form RB. He’ll not have it all his own way against a Bills defense that ranks top 3 in rushing yards allowed per game. 

Spread: Bills -7.0

Total: 49.5

Game Prediction: Bills 30-21 Colts

Best Bet: Jonathan Taylor over 103.5 total yards & to score a TD @ 2/1 with Bet365 Bet Builder. [0.5]
