The Indianapolis Colts look for a statement win to build on their lead in the AFC South. The Indianapolis Colts have won three of their last four home games. Philip Rivers is completing 68.7 percent of his passes for 2,395 yards, 11 touchdowns and seven interceptions. Rivers has one or less touchdown passes in seven of his last nine games.

The Packers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games, 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games as an underdog and 2-5-1 ATS in their last 8 games in November. The Colts are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games in November, 13-5 ATS vs. a team with a winning record and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games as a favorite. The over is 4-1 in Colts last 5 games overall. The home team is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings.
The Green Bay Packers lead the NFC North and have one of the best offenses in the league, but I can also see why some are questionable with them considering only one of their seven wins have come against teams with a winning record. The Indianapolis Colts have had extra time to prepare for this game, have Hilton back on the field and they've played their best ball at home where they're 3-1 and those wins have come by an average of 16.6 points. With all that said, we're getting these explosive Packers and Rodgers as an underdog. There's just certain spots I refuse to turn down and getting free points with Rodgers is one of them.
Give me the Packers as an underdog.
