Indianapolis Colts vs Cincinnati Bengals prediction

The Colts are getting the benefit of the doubt here because of their winning streak, and having the rest advantage doesn’t hurt. However, the Bengals are coming back home, they’re off a huge confidence boosting win over the Jaguars and now they’re back in the thick of the playoff race. Also, Jake Browning is coming off a big time per romance where he threw for 354 yards and completed 86.5 percent of his passes. It’s one game, but it’s a victory that could have some carry over. It’s also expected to be yucky and rainy, and the Colts don’t have Johnathan Taylor. Give me the Bengals and the points.
