TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS @ INDIANAPOLIS COLTS

Easily the game of the early slate, in my opinion, as the reigning Super Bowl Champion Buccaneers travel to Indy to take on a Colts side who have won five of their last six and come into this off the back of a dominant win over the Buffalo Bills last week. Can Brady & Co pick up back to back wins for the first time in a month, or will Jonathan Taylor keep the Colts running towards the postseason? 

Colts RB Jonathan Taylor is garnering real MVP talk after his 204 yards, 5 TD game against the Bills last week, and whilst the second-year ball-carrier will be up against the NFL’s #1 ranked run defense, it’s important to remember that the Bills had a top-3 unit going into last Sunday’s game and JT ran all over them. The Bucs could well be without Vita Vea and Devin White, who’re both game-time decisions. If Tampa’s starting 1-tech and ILB are unable to play then, Tampa will be losing vital cogs in their run-stuffing defense. Former Wisconsin man Taylor has eight straight games with over 110 total yards and has 15 TDs in the same timeframe. 

Spread: Colts +3.5

Total: 53.0

Game Prediction: Colts 31-30 Bucs

Best Bet: Jonathan Taylor over 108.5 total yards & to score 2+ TD’s @ 10/3 with Bet365 Bet Builder. [0.5]
