The Indianapolis Colts and Washington Commanders do battle Sunday in week 8 NFL action from Lucas Oil Stadium.
The Washington Commanders will look to build on back-to-back wins after a 23-21 win over Green Bay propelled Washington to 3-4 on the year. Carson Wentz has thrown for 1,489 yards, 10 touchdowns and 6 interceptions on 62.1% passing while Taylor Heinicke’s tossed for 201 yards, 2 touchdowns and an interception on 60.6% passing. Antonio Gibson’s rushed for 273 yards and a pair of scores while Terry McLaurin has a team-high 440 receiving yards with a pair of scores and Curtis Samuel has a team-high 39 grabs for 330 yards and a pair of touchdowns as well. On defense, Cole Holcomb leads Washington with 69 total tackles including 37 solo tackles while Washington’s defense has combined for 19 sacks on the year.
The Indianapolis Colts will try to bounce back from a 19-10 loss to Tennessee to fall to 3-3-1 on the year. Matt Ryan has thrown for 2,008 yards, 9 touchdowns and 9 interceptions on 68.3% passing but is now injured and is being replaced by Sam Ehlinger while Jonathan Taylor has a team-high 386 rushing yards this season. Michael Pittman Jr. leads Indy’s receiving group with 44 grabs for 475 receiving yards while Alec Pierce has 308 receiving yards and another six Colts have at least 100 receiving yards so far this season. On defense, Zaire Franklin has a team-high 73 total tackles while Yannick Ngakoue has a team-high 3.5 sacks this season.
Washington is 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 games against a team with a losing record and 2-6 ATS in their last 8 October games while the under is 5-2 in their last 7 games against a team with a losing record. Indianapolis is 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games following an ATS loss and 51-25-1 ATS in their last 77 games following a straight up loss while the under is 11-1 in their last 12 games overall.
I get the case to be made either way here but I’m looking at the under. I just want no part of either of these teams in their current form with the backups starting and this just has the makings of a slopfest for 60 minutes with a lot of mucking around between the 20s and a lot of field goals. Give me the under here.
